To quote Capt. Bob: “To see the thrill in the person’s eyes when they hook that ‘bucket list’ fish of a lifetime, or to show young people the wonders of the ocean for the first time and plant the seeds of outdoor life in their minds are the main reasons I still love what I do after all these years”. Captain Bob has been fishing the Florida Keys since the early 1970’s as a kid with his father on vacations. Then came to the Keys and started Sundance Sportfishing in 1980, logging 200 to 300 fishing trips per year. Captain Bob has completed numerous bad weather rescues of other boaters over the years.

" It is one of the finest fishing boats built for both tournament fishing or the family fishing trip. The center console concept works great for catching of large fish that swim fast like sailfish, Mahi, Wahoo or Tarpon. This allows the angler to quickly move to front of the boat keeping the line from rubbing on the boat and more fish on the hook! With twin 300hp Yamaha power it is a quick, short comfortable ride to the fishing grounds. This boat has an awesome tower to help the captain see fish and birds at a distance, which helps put more fish on your lines and in the box! It is also versatile enough to fish inshore for Tarpon and other shallow water, as well as way offshore for Swordfish or Marlin." Read More

Target our most abundant Billfish in the peak of the season fishing along the edge of the coral reef of the Florida Keys. Most of the time we can target these speed demons in the area 5-6 miles from shore. A super short run to the fishing grounds on our Sailfish catching machine with twin 300HP engines! We use live bait techniques that might include kite fishing or the ‘run and gun’ method of finding fish swimming on the surface and then pitching live baits to them. It can be fast paced and big fun. Double digit sailfish releases can be common at certain times of the year. Call us today for details on this exciting trip! On this trip you may also catch King Mackerel, Dolphin (Mahi), Tuna, Wahoo, and deep wreck dwellers such as Mutton Snapper, Amberjack, Shark, Barracuda and more! If you want a little shorter day, 6 hour (3/4 day) trips also available for this kind of fishing. Read More

You can’t control the weather. Our day was very rough. 5 to 7 foot seas. Capt. Bob knew exactly where to go to put us on the fish. We had a great day in-spite of the high winds. Capt. Bob was awesome.
