We now have some exciting fishing options here in the Florida Key for our clients around the world. Since January of 2007 Fishing Pursuits has been handling the charter bookings for Saltwater Experience. This is not a lodge, but rather a first rate charter service that is based out of the beautiful Hawks Cay Resort marina at mile marker 61 in the middle Keys.
Being located on the property of a four star resort is the next best thing to a lodge, as it affords you all the amenities for a great overall vacation. Features of the resort include three swimming pools, a saltwater swimming lagoon, a Dolphin center, restaurants, play grounds, boat & jet ski rentals, diving & snorkeling tours plus a nice variety of accommodation choices. Visit Hawks Cay on the web for further details.
The fishing options can be broken down into two major categories: Offshore and Inshore. Each with its own appeal and range of species and fishing techniques.
The inshore fishing is done in Florida Bay and along both sides of the Keys. There you have wreck fishing and flats fishing. Species include, but are not limited to the following: Tarpon, Permit, Bonefish, Snook, Redfish, Sea Trout, Snapper, Grouper, Barracuda and Sharks.
Out in the Atlantic (Caribbean) the larger Offshore boats can take you to the reef for things like Snapper, Grouper and Amber Jacks to name a few. They can also troll a little farther out for Sailfish, Marlin, Wahoo and Kingfish. For those willing to travel out even a little farther, there are opportunities for Tuna, Mahi Mahi and even Swordfish.
