Keys Fishing Reports
May Fishing Report for the Middle Keys May 1, 2013
From the Desk of Managing Director Sheldon Suga
There are so many different species of fish that you can catch in May that it can be a bit overwhelming deciding what to target. For light tackle enthusiasts, you can’t go wrong with the non-stop action of a trip to the Everglades backcountry. The bite has been outstanding for redfish, snook, seatrout, pompano, jacks, and sharks, with plenty of tarpon and permit mixed in.
Speaking of tarpon, don’t pass up the chance to battle fishing’s greatest game fish, the big silver king! May is one of the best months to catch these incredible fish. Take a morning or evening tarpon trip with one of our professional Hawks Cay guides, and just minutes from the Resort you can be hooked up with tarpon over 100 pounds!
If you’re looking to catch dinner, May offers plenty of opportunities to bring home a cooler of tasty filets. Plenty of hard-fighting and great tasting dolphin fish (mahi mahi) are being caught offshore, and the reef has been excellent for all the snapper species.
Whatever it is you decide to fish for, Hawks Cay captains will put you on the fish and provide a memorable fishing experience that you won’t soon forget.
Good luck and great fishing! - Sheldon
