Reel Time News – Fishing at Hawks Cay

Our fishing captains have been reporting some pretty good offshore and inshore fishing the last few weeks, but don’t just take it from us. Fishing Guru George Poveromo of George Poveromo’s World of Saltwater Fishing recently stayed with us and we’re thrilled that he has agreed to take over today’s blog to share his recent experience.  Take it away, George.

“Upon entering the Hawks Cay property, with my triple-powered, 334-center console in tow, I saw and turned into their large and immaculately-maintained boat ramp. We were greeted by a very courteous staff member presiding over this area. I had plenty of space within the staging area to maneuver my boat down the ramp. After launching, I was informed on where I could unhitch and leave my trailer!  For anglers who trailer their boats to the Florida Keys, they will certainly appreciate this major convenience!

The newly-renovated Resort was nothing short of elegant.  Upon checking in, a friendly and efficient team presented us with our room keys. They also took time to point out all the major Resort amenities. We were staying in the Villas, and I docked the MARC VI right behind my unit.  The villas are beautiful, and having your boat right there – with water and shore power – is the best!  You can walk outside and onto your boat as early as you wish, and come back in as late as you wish, hopefully with a good catch!

Finally, the fishing off Hawks Cay certainly speaks for itself.  We chased after late-season dolphin and did quite well among the large weed patches between 1,000 and 1,200 feet of water. We even raised a blue marlin one afternoon, but couldn’t get a hook into it!

It was a perfect few days at an absolutely ideal property!  And, you’ll see this “World of Saltwater Fishing” television episode on NBC SPORTS in February, 2019!”

If you want to get in on some of the fishing action, just call 877-423-6403 to book a charter.  Although the marina is being upgraded, our captains are still operating out of Hawks Cay for both offshore and inshore excursions.  And if you plan to bring your boat down, we’ll give you the same spot that George had.
