Captain Bob is a well-rounded fisherman who began his career fishing freshwater for Bluegill and Largemouth Bass. From there, he moved to Ocean City Maryland where he became a first mate on offshore trips targeting Marlin, Tuna, Sharks, and more. After earning his captain's license and visiting the Florida Keys on vacation, he knew he had to make the full-time leap, and the rest is history!
Captain Bob's been guiding the charter fishing trips out of Cudjoe Key since 2000. He prides himself on understand customer needs and desires, which plays to his versatility as a guide- he's just as comfortable spending the day putting kids on fish after fish for rod-bending action as he is stalking that one prized fish with experienced anglers on the flats with light or fly tackle.

First off, there was some confusion with the first Capt. we were booked with and he didn’t have us on his schedule. I called the cust service line and Adam took great care of me. He showed genuine concern and was able to get us booked with Capt. Bob. 5 stars for Adam. We enjoyed our trip with Capt. Bob. He was knowledgeable and accommodating, got us into some fish, and coached us on casting. Great guy! I would recommend Capt. Bob for anyone interested in fly fishing the flats. …
Captain Bob was awesome! We caught so many fish and sharks. Would definitely recommend!
What a day with Capt bob, he went above and beyond our expectations for this half day charter, I had my wife and daughter out so I just wanted to bend a rod for them, Capt bob suggested shark fishing which was a great choice as my wife and daughter wanted to experience shark fishing, Capt bob got us on the spot and soon after we were into hungry shark and barracuda, Capt bob kept us out much later than he was suppose to and fulfilled all our expectations in this charter, he has fishing as his passion and it truly shows, I highly recommend Capt bob for your trip, thanks so much Capt bob for going way above and beyond your duties as a charter boat Capt.

Highly recommend. Captain went to great lengths to put us on fish. We enjoyed every minute and our daughter caught her first shark and good sized ones two. Captain is beyond experienced and the boat is well equipped. Would definitely go again if we’re down here in the future.
Captain Bob is a phenomenal guide. He is very knowledgeable, and very patient. We told him the tug is our drug. Challenged with not the greatest conditions, He got us on fish right away, and worked hard to get us on more when the action died down. He has a nice, clean boat, great gear, and a great attitude. I would recommend using Bob for any fisherman heading to the lower keys. …
Capt. Bob was excellent, we booked a half day trip but he extended it by nearly three hours to ensure that we had the best experience. The water temp was tough (cold) but with Capt. Bobs persistence and skill we were able to have a successful day after starting slow. He put me in fish with tackle and the fly which was awesome. I will certainly book with and recommend Capt. Bob to anyone who asks! …
We had a great time on the water with Captain Bob! Super clean boat, excellent gear, and most importantly a friendly and knowledgeable captain! He didn’t mind staying out a bit longer in order to go further and find the fish. He let us try different tactics, resulting in 6 lemon sharks, 1 nurse shark, 2 Jacks and a barracuda! When I’m back in the Keys, I know who to call! …
