Captain Lee's Maritime Adventures

Are you ready to tackle some spectacular fishing action with Captain Lee’s Maritime Adventures? Captain Lee Kaplan offers a variety of trips out of Hollywood, Florida, a place where anglers catch big Bass more than any other state. South Florida is a hotspot for all types of fishing. Captain Lee has been fishing these waters since he was a kid, which makes him a true local expert. Come join him for an adventure and let him put you on some nice fish!

Your boat for the day is a 21’ Triton bass boat with room for up to 4 anglers. It uses a 250 HP Yamaha engine and has GPS and fishfinder electronics for quick and efficient movement on the water. The boat is also equipped with a livewell for keeping bait.

Largemouth Bass fishing is always great in the area, and when the weather heats up so is Peacock Bass fishing. Apart from these two species, you can also target some Crab if you want. To attract these fish and others, you will be spinning on light tackle. Kids are welcome to come aboard, just keep in mind that those under 6 have to wear life jackets. Any legal fish you catch is yours to keep.

Captain Lee provides all the rods, reels, and tackle and covers you for fishing licenses. What you should bring for the trip are your food and drinks as well as bait.

Spend a day fishing with Captain Lee’s Maritime Adventures, a memorable experience awaits!
