Charter Fishing Sarasota
My 23' Mako is one of the most desirable medium offshore center console fishing boats ever built. The ride is exceedingly smooth. The Mako 23 is not only smoother riding, but she is very dry as well. I prefer catching Grouper, Snapper, Shark, Amberjack, Barracuda and Kingfish and the Gulf is where they are. The Mako is the boat for the Gulf of Mexico!
I have totally updated this Mako. The electronics – fish finder, radio, GPS are all new – the latest technology. Even the compass has been replaced. I have replaced all the USCG required life jackets with new Type 1′s. Even the cushions on the forward seats are USCG approved throwable life saving devices. I had a larger than usual T-Top built to provide shade for my customers. I have rod storage for 15 rods and 2 gaffs. The last improvement is my favorite – an electric windlass! I no longer have to pull the anchor by hand, which takes time and can be dangerous. I can now hit a button on the console to drop and retrieve the 16lb Lewmar claw anchor.
In the interest of my customers' safety and the environment, I have also replaced my aging, low tech Mercury outboard with a new, environmentally friendly Evinrude Etec 225. This is an extremely reliable motor, built in Canada, that uses less fuel and emits far less pollutants than older 2 stroke technology!
My fishing gear reflects some of the latest technological advances in the fishing industry. In most cases, I’ve replaced mono-filament line with Power Pro braid. What this means to my customers is that I can employ extremely light tackle to catch big fish. I routinely use 6 lb test on a Penn 4200 to catch kingfish and barracuda because the Power Pro line is so tough.
The new fish finding electronics give me the ability to pinpoint territorial bottom fish like grouper and snapper. This new gear will mark even fast moving pelagic like kingfish or tuna. With top-notch equipment, I’ll find the fish but you and the kids do the hard work, reeling ‘em in!
With an 8 foot beam and the additional length, there is ample room for 4 anglers and perhaps an observer. Since I don’t work with a mate (read “no tip for mate required”), I do all the work and 4 anglers is all I can keep up with. The Wild Mullet is truly an outstanding offshore fishing platform.
