Arguably, the very best fishing in Florida is in the Middle Florida Keys. And you do not need a boat or experience, just pick out a Captain for a charter trip. Hawks Cay Marina is a fantastic spot, with daily trips you can per-register for. Just try to find better Fishing Captains than they have here. And what fun, plus challenging! From Craig Key down to the Seven Mile Bridge. Pick your pleasures, near-shore or head out for deep sea fishing beyond the reefs. After, you take your catch to the restaurant to grill up!
Yes, it is a great experience to do and you can take kids along For a Special Day. There are plenty of fish (year round and seasonal) to be caught in our Ocean and Backcountry Waters. Very popular targets: Mahi-Mahi, Black Grouper, Sheepshead, Mutton Snapper, Lemon Sharks, Tripletail, Blue Runner, Blacktip Sharks, Lady Fish, Wahoo, Bonefish, Barracuda, Redfish, Snook, and the mighty Permit.
Here is one of the top fishing guides running out of Hawks Cay (I'm Hooked Fishing Charters). The backcountry is where it is at, fly and light tackle fishing is the most scenic and you see more nature in the shallow waters.
The trips are so special, you will need to bring a video camera along to capture the moment. You cannot beat brushing the edges of Conch Key, Duck Key, and Grassy Key. These are the hot Fishing Areas on the upper end of Marathon Florida Keys.
Arguably, the very best fishing in Florida is in the Middle Florida Keys. Pick your pleasures, near-shore or head out for deep sea fishing beyond the reefs. What a prime place to vacation with a family for loads of adventures.
