Makos.  Before you poke 'em you should know who's coming by for dinner...or at least who was dinner.

The shortfin mako inhabits offshore temperate and tropical seas worldwide. The closely related longfin mako is found in the Gulf Stream or warmer offshore waters.  It is a pelagic species that can be found from the surface down to depths of 150 m (490 ft), normally far from land though occasionally closer to shore, around islands or inlets looking for food.

These potential 62 MPH creates of the blue are swift, hardy and will nicely bite into your hooked game fish very quickly.  For all you fin stickers out there, the short fin Mako is another fish with a high market value.  But, becareful where you sell as Green Peace International put them on their redlist in 2010.

While we study the Mako and hear from our captains.  We will find out more about their fishign holes and if they are vistied by our little friends as well.  Speaking live will be Capt. Erik Lorentzen from Homosassa, FL, Capt. "Kiwi" Van Leeuwen in Guatemala, Capt. Mike Hennessey in the Hawaiian Islands and finally Capt. Jake Jordan as he flies from trade show to trade show this time of the year.  We will not only get JAke's opinion of the mako, but he will give us the headliners of teh shows this year.

SOOOO...grab your rum, your favorite comfy chair, your humor mode and let MJ, Roddy and Ozzie fill your air with laughter.
