Yeah, that place is a must see if you're ever down in the Florida keys, There is a really nice BPS Outdoor World right down the road too. You could watch that video 1000 times and it will still scare the crud out of you when one jumps up from under the dock and grabs that fish, it's never the one you expect.

Stayed at Hawk's Cay four years ago. Spent all day with a guide trying to raise one with my fly rod. Came back to the resort, and there were hundreds of them at the marina right out the of our place.

Anyone fish for them at the marina, or is that a no no?
Don't think you're allowed to fish at the Hungry Tarpon, not sure about any other marinas. Catching a large tarpon while bound to the shore would be an interesting adventure for sure, they pull pretty good and love to jump, make sure your tackle is up to it. Pretty sure you'd attract a good crowd shortly after hooking up, make sure you're 100% legal and allowed to fish there before attempting. Be aware of what's around you as well, big hammerheads LOVE an easy tarpon meal, plenty of videos out there to back that up too.

U can't fish there but you can fish right across the bridge....Robbie's is on the right just as you go over a bridge...but look north from robbies and you can fish that area...i did...not hits but if you had live bait or frozen like they had I am sure you could get one eventually....i caught a lot of fish with the guide but on my own I only got cuda, snapper and I lost one big snook 2 miles north of robbies.....
