Any suggestions as to what species the kids would have a great chance of hook ups? We want to ensure they have fun
As said, cudas and shark are plentiful and eager to take a fly, and there are several great flats and channels around Hawks Cay/Duck Key. You'll want a boat or at least a shallow/exposed area to land either fish on as well as using extreme caution around the kids. You can see the sharks coming from the channels onto the flats very clearly and have plenty of time to set up for a good presentation. I lived there for several years. Shoot me a pm if you have any specific questions or would like a guide rec.
