This Captain knows where to fish!

Have fished with Captain Lee many times and he never disappoints. Weather its fishing in the back country for Cobia or under the bridges for Tarpon Lee always gets his fish!

I have never been on a fishing charter... and I don't think I will ever find another nearly as amazing as this one! My husband booked our trip for our honeymoon at Hawk's Cay Resort on Duck Cay. I had absolutely no idea that this would be my favorite part of our trip! Captain Lee is friendly, knowledgable, skilled, and... More

This was one of the best day's of my son's life. He caught a shark! We went on a full day excursion with Captain Lee and lost count of how many fish we caught. Captain Lee is a seasoned and responsible fisherman, teaching us about the biology and geography of the Florida Keys. After our exciting day, he prepared all... More

My wife and I were “finally” able to take a trip to Duck Key and spend some time with some dear friends that have fished with Captain Lee for many years now. We had never salt water fished in our lives and was looking forward to this adventure to say the least. Upon us meeting Captain Lee we were put... More

We had a great day of fishing with Captain Lee yesterday despite a rough, windy day. The fishing was some of the hardest, but he doggedly kept looking for the fish for us, trying everything. He worked so hard under very difficult conditions. At the second spot we tried we finally got plenty of fish. We caught makerel, snapper and... More

Captain Lee was AWESOME! Man does he know what he is doing. Just the 2 of us went out fishing and I can't imagine a better experience. If almost limiting out on fish is a slow day sign me up again! I would recommend First Love to everyone from the expert angler to the beginner, Captain Lee will take great... More

Capt. Lee took us out and put us on the fish all day. I could not have asked for a better trip. We were able to catch dolphin, triple tail, and tuna. Never before has a charter been this much fun.

Our charter with Captain Lee was amazing. We were treated like family. The whole day was interesting with Lee telling us about the keys, reefs, water currents, history, scenery, what bait and technique to use for each situation. No mater what season, he will find something for you to catch!
