S14:E2 - “Captains For Clean Water” (2019)
Daniel Andrews of Captains for Clean Water discusses the state of the Everglades.
You know you are approaching the halfway mark to Key West when the Seven Mile Bridge approaches into view. If this is your first time visiting the Florida Keys, you will quickly notice stretches of unaccessible bridge close by. Built from the instruction of Henry Flagler, Flagler had designed a railway that transported people to Key West, known as the Overseas Railroad. Due to a hurricane in 1935, the railroad bridge was destroyed (now referred to as the Old Seven Mile Bridge) and a new bridge was built in it’s place in 1982 for automobile use only.
Located on Duck Key, Hawks Cay Resort is a perfect location for fishing, sight-seeing, and diving. Only a mile away offshore, fishing at Hawks Cay is an easily accessible activity to do at the Florida Keys. Though there is a great variety out in the water, here are my top five favorite fish to catch near Hawks Cay:

March 30, 2018 – Islamorada, Florida Keys Captain Rich Tudor takes his son Austin and the Island Christian School Fishing Club out to troll live mullet for big barracuda and then to the flats for some shark fishing!
My question: is there a way I can alter my leader setup to target large redfish while still being able to handle a shark up to 200 pounds and cast long distances?
The Haywire can be tied to the hook and also at the top of the leader to a swivel if your fishing situation requires it. I often use a swivel when shark fishing with dead bait because it sometimes spins in the current...
I had never seen a Bull Shark attack a turtle before or since that moment. I was millimeters away from jumping exactly between the shark and turtle and I knew how bad it could have been. At times like this, I feel like there was someone watching me who either put the shark in the picture or kept me from jumping 1 second sooner...
It is the morning fishing that helped me build a career out of tarpon fishing. Being able to navigate the tricky waters of the Florida Keys in total darkness gave me an edge over many guides that would wait until the pale light of dawn to leave the dock.
We started the day early, meeting up at the John Pennekamp State Park boat launch on Key Largo and loading up two Yellowfin 24s with crew, Tom and Rich and Tom’s boys...
Long before I moved to the coast I had been a big fan of sharks, shark week and anything sharky. I remember reading articles about shark...
Many places that look really good are tide dependent. You may go by early in the day and decide that is a place you would like to try on the way back only to see it actually out of the water on low tide...
