Captain Lee Meyers

The Hambone II

Captain Lee Meyers is a highly experienced captain, operating out of Port Canaveral, Florida. With over 15 years of fishing experience in and around the Atlantic waters of Eastern Florida and the Bahamas, Capt. Lee and his crew will make your charter an experience you won't forget! A most interesting specialty of Capt. Lee is live baiting for Cobia and Kingfish. This is a real treat, and quite exciting. For more information or to book Capt. Lee, contact him via the phone numbers listed below!

The Captain and Mate are professional fishermen, and have many years of experience. The mate is aboard to ensure your safety and help you catch fish. He will instruct you in the use of the fishing tackle and coach you in fish fighting techniques. He will explain the boat layout, how to use the head and various safety equipment. And last but certainly not least, he will clean your fish when you return to port.

Captain Lee offers Offshore and Specialty Fishing charters aboard the Hambone II, a 48' Pacemaker Sportsfisherman.

Port Canaveral

Port Canaveral is a very busy and quite unique place. It is home to a growing cruise ship industry with several ships that make 3 and 4 day trips to the Bahamas. There is also a large seasonal commercial fishing fleet based at Port Canaveral. It is not uncommon to see dozens of shrimp, scallop, and long-line boats unloading their catches. You'll see noisy tug boats coming and going all hours of the day, since Port Canaveral is also a busy commercial shipping port. Port Canaveral is considered to have the safest inlet on the entire East Coast of Florida, and hundreds of small private boats use the Port on any given weekend. The US Navy has a support base on the northeast side of the Port. Keep your eyes open for one of the majestic Naval ships or huge Trident submarines that frequent Port Canaveral. Cape Canaveral Air Station and Kennedy Space Center is located just north of the Port. The Space Shuttle and unmanned rocket launches are routinely scheduled throught the year.

"The water depth offshore Port Canaveral is shallow, and drops off very gradually. You are invited to join the Captain on the bridge for the run offshore, and throughout the day. Each day is different, but we usually run for about 20 miles before we start fishing. Some days the fishing is fantastic, other days you can't buy a strike. The ocean is ever changing. We regularly see porpoise, turtles, birdlife and whales. Bring your camera and be prepared to witness some of nature's most wonderful sights."
