We stayed at Hawks Cay in a townhouse at the harbor, and this boat was docked across the canal from our unit. It was one of the potential charters listed on the Hawks Cay website. I called and left a message, and never heard back. 4 of the 5 days we were there, the boat was docked. 1 day we... More

Fishing with Captain Lee Lucas is a must out of Hawks Cay Resort on Duck Key. My husband and I had such a wonderful experience with Lee and Joey. They will keep you laughing and having fun while catching a ton of fish! We will definitely be back.

We had a great day fishing with Captain Lee Lucas. We stayed at Hawks cay and heard about L&L from our friend who visits the keys often to fish. We have little experience fishing and Captain Lucas showed us what we needed to do to catch our dinner:). We then took our catch to a local restaurant he recommended and... More

Our group of four had a wonderful time fishing with Captain Lee; he helped lead our (inexperienced) group to a great catch of snapper and grouper, kept us entertained with a wealth of stories, and even helped us make dinner reservations at a nearby Inn (which cooked our catch to perfection). Highly recommend Captain Lee if you are staying near... More

Captain Lee was a fantastic guide. We fished back country and caught non-stop mackerel, snapper, grouper, etc. He was energetic and taught us exactly how to set the hook and land the fish, etc. Will definitely to go him again for our next trip. Thanks Captain Lee!

I have never been on a fishing charter... and I don't think I will ever find another nearly as amazing as this one! My husband booked our trip for our honeymoon at Hawk's Cay Resort on Duck Cay. I had absolutely no idea that this would be my favorite part of our trip! Captain Lee is friendly, knowledgable, skilled, and... More

This was one of the best day's of my son's life. He caught a shark! We went on a full day excursion with Captain Lee and lost count of how many fish we caught. Captain Lee is a seasoned and responsible fisherman, teaching us about the biology and geography of the Florida Keys. After our exciting day, he prepared all... More
