LETS GO FISHING!!!!

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 in 2017.

Tight Lines,
Capt. Dave

Some decent fishing going on for us over the past week or so. We’re not “on fire” and catching mother-loads, but we are seeing some nice fish as well as some Sharks. Very warm water temps have slowed the influx of the Bull Reds, as well as their main food source, Mullet. We usually see our area waters bubbling with large schools of Mullet, and the invasion of Bull Reds, however, with water temps still in the low 80’s, the “running” of the Bulls has been more like a slow meandering stroll. They have started appearing, just not in the numbers that we usually see by mid October. There looks to be a cold front moving this way by early next week, and while most folks have enjoyed summer like temperatures, myself include, the cooler air and water temps will greatly enhance our Fall fisheries.  Until then, keep applying the sunscreen, watch out for the remaining Sharks, and be prepared for the fishing to get better with each passing day. Feel free to check out our Facebook page for the latest and greatest catches.

*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.

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. The Mighty Mako has fished out of Palmetto Bay Marina for over 25 years and has been docked in the exact same slip (slip #1) for the entire time. We gladly accept several forms of payment and offer all of the amenities one would expect from a reputable marina and charter service.
