Tight Lines,

Hottest day of the year, and I’m glad to have taken a day off for the 1rst time in a while. My day off consisted of servicing and tuning the boat up for the 2nd half of the Summer season that’s ahead. The last couple of weeks have been tough because of the extreme new moon tides and the wind field that seems to blow 10-15knotts daily. The Mackerel bite ha been woefully slow to nonexistent. After a couple of weeks with some of the best King and Spanish fishing I’ve seen in years, the bite abruptly shut down and all that was left was Sharks. As far as that bite goes, I would give it a grade of B-. It usually is an A, but the consistency has not been there, and even the reliable Shrimp Trawlers that produce the Megs, have not produce the quantity we expect from them. We did catch a handful of Huge Bulls and some excitable Blacktips that put on a show well above the water line this past week, but hopefully we get back to some variety and more consistency. Will be looking for some Jacks during these high tide mornings and will keep hope alive that a school of Tarpon grace the south end waters sooner than later. Keep Hope Alive!

*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.
