Cape May Mako season 6-5-09 8:00 pm

83000004 A few  basics  to pay attention to when fishing for Mako sharks:
1)  do not leave the dock without a Roffer’s’ report. I get one even though I have up to date reports from commercial fishermen. If you are fishing with a captain that does not know what a Roffer’s report is chances are you are only going for a boat ride!
2) If you are going to compete in the tournaments invest in a Mako magnet they work!  I have seen sharks, tuna and blues come right up and put their nose on the thing.
3)  Makos return to the same wreaks and edges ever year, seek out information as to what areas hold makos when the conditions are right.
4)  a crew with a plan. Every crew member should know how to leader a mako, gaff, shoot and run the boat. 
5)   the first boat on the structure has a significant advantage.  Leave early and run hard! 
6) stay on the structure! not almost on it !
7) make sure your bait is alive and your chum is fresh.
