Hook n' Cook
One of a plethora of watersport offerings at Hawks Cay is the "hook n' cook" option where if you hook a fish on a fishing expedition, chef Tony Glitz will graciously cook it for you for dinner. We dealt with choppy water on our 3-hour excursion and to my regret I didn't pop a motion sickness pill opting instead for the anti-nausea wristbands. Flash forward to me desperately pressing the gray wristbands to no avail as the boat sways like a teacup at the state fair. Fret not, I didn't bail my lunch and the water eventually mellowed a bit. I even caught a few petite yellowtail snapper which chef kindly grilled up for a satisfying fish feast. The pic above is actually a speckled grouper, (petite as well - it was a day for dimunative fish). Not big enough for dinner, but feisty enough for its closeup.
