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.

Tight Lines,

This past week brought us some challenging conditions to work with. Not perfect storm type conditions, but enough onshore winds to roughen up the ocean just enough so that most boats could not fish in comfort or with high hopes of success. Combined with the extreme tides due to tonight’s full moon, the inshore areas have been very difficult to fish with any hope of success as well. So much water moving in and out really shuts the bite down, and unless you can get a few miles off the beach where the tide flow isn’t as pronounced, fisherman tend to get screwed. We were very fortunate to be able to fish a inshore spot that doesn’t have any tide flow horizontally, but just vertical water movement. We were also fortunate to have an ebb tide in the mornings that enabled us to fish an area where we could be productive. We caught large numbers of sizeable Black Drum up to 10lbs and some beautiful Redfish that nearly all exceeded 30 inches. All of the fishing was done on very lite spin tackle with 8lb test line  and the reward was  very gratifying.  When nature throws Lemons in your direction, catch em and squeeze, and then enjoy the lemonade. Winds back off this weekend and by mid-week, the moons pull on the tides start to resemble some normalcy. The Shrimp boats should be back to work and holding lots of large Sharks in their wake. Hopefully some Spanish Mackerel will be entering our area and provide us with some fun casting action. Gonna take it easy for the next few days and keep my fingers crossed. Enjoy the weekend and remember to take a Kid fishing.

*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,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.
