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

Just another week of fishing in a big muddy puddle filled with Sharks. On top of that, the weather has pretty much soaked us down every day at some point. I’m over all the rain. Even my yard and foliage have had enough. But wait,, here comes some more by early week. I honestly can say that I cant remember a wetter summer than this. And yes, it can adversely affect the fishing due to fresh water run off. The Shrimpers aren’t out because of the lack of shrimp, and in turn, its hard to locate the larger Sharks that we hook up behind the trawlers. While we have caught a fair amount of Sharks this past week, most are less than 40lbs and with many being half that size. The Mackerel bite that we enjoyed has also dwindled, even though we haven’t been able to get off the beach due to stormy conditions, I’ve heard the larger boats have been striking out. I’m hopeful to see some more Mackerel in our nearshore areas as well as some Jacks that normally show up in our waters at about this time every Summer. This remains to be seen. Until then, looks like Sharking will be the mainstay, and it beats not catching anything at all. Now if only it will stop raining.  Oh well, time will tell.

*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.
