Tight lines to all you anglers who have fished, and have yet to fish, aboard the Mighty Mako.
Hopefully, you will experience the thrill of a life time (or an enjoyable day among friends and family) when you fish aboard the Mighty Mako.

Tight Lines,
Capt. Dave

I hope everyone’s year is off to a good start, and that wherever you wet a line this year, the payoff will be huge. The boat is currently in dry dock and is getting a major refurbishing for the coming season. With 30 plus years on the water, the Mako needs to be shown a little love and appreciation in order for her to return the favor over the coming seasons. Starting with a new engine, new console, shaded T-top, the list goes on. Unfortunately, these upgrades are time consuming and many other procedures are dependent on weather conditions. Basically what I’m saying, is that there is no set date for the Mako to be splashed and fishing. With a little luck we should be out on the water and hooking-up by mid March. I believe that patience in this process, and not hurrying or cutting corners, is best for the long-term fishing future. Even if it means the start of our fishing is a little later than years past. I will have an update in a couple of weeks. If you are looking to fish over the next few weeks, feel free to give me a call and I will put you in touch with a guide who can assist you. There are several captains whom I know well and respect, and will be able to show you and yours a good time. Thanks for checking me out, and I hope you have a blessed day!

*Fall fishing season might very well be the best fishing that the island’s surrounding waters have to offer. Ultra light tackle for Redfish and Trout offers backwater enthusiasts a great opportunity for fast paced action and rod bending moments. Glassy, calm water and a beautiful picturesque setting along the marshes and tidal creeks, offer the idyllic backdrop to the autumn fishing season. When combining the perfect fishing spot with the right tide, the chance of a memorable few hours are almost a given.

Consumer Alert


A message to all visiting anglers. Please be aware of misleading fishing guide websites offering their services to Hilton Head visitors, as well as fishing reports that promise you the moon and the stars every trip. An attractive looking website accompanied by claims of “local expertise” and years of experience does not make it so, and my weekly fishing report is always honest and trustworthy. The Mighty Mako is not trailord to various docks and landings, demanding cash payment only,with no restroom facilities, shelter, or essentials one may want before and after their outing on the water.  We gladly accept several forms of payment and offer all of the amenities one would expect from a reputable charter service.
