Thank you Lee for another great fishing trip. I have been coming to Hawk's Cay for years as both a guest of the resort and a villa owner. Lee is the man to see to fish! Our half day trip this visit was the highlight of our trip. We caught our limit and ate our fill. See you next time!

We were not disappointed. The boat was great, the attention to detail and service could not have been better. And fish,... More

Mangrove snapper, grouper, spanish mackarel to name a few. He is a Captain that wants his customers to catch fish. He is willing to help and provide... 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.

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!
