Fish Dance Sportfishing Charters

If you’re looking for a fun day on the water with a friendly and professional crew that can help you fill your coolers, jump on the “Fish Dance” and the crew of Fish Dance Sportfishing Charters will hook you up!

Captains Keith and Joe have 40+ years of combined experience fishing the coastal waters of North Carolina and use it to provide memorable experiences catching fish. They like to fish, but love to catch!

Their comfortable 43’ Uniflite sport fisherman is equipped with top of the line equipment and gear that accommodates 6 anglers of all ages and skill levels. The boat is equipped for trips 1 to 50 miles offshore catching all species of fish, particularly whatever’s in season at the time.

The Fish Dance has a flybridge that enables the captain to spot fish and put you on them, a comfortable salon with couches and chairs, onboard bathroom, satellite radio, fighting chairs, and top of the line gear and electronics to make your charter a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Fish Dance Sportfishing Charters specialize in putting clients on the fish having an awesome time doing it. They offer charters to fit any budget and have a long list of species to target, including Barracuda, Spanish and King Mackerel, Amberjack, Little Tunny, Bluefish, Black Seabass, Grunt, B-Liners, Triggerfish, Wahoo, Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi, Blackfin Tuna, and Shark, just to name a few!

Each trip includes licenses, bait, tackle, and gear. Custom Angler’s Envy rods, Shimano, Penn, and Tiagra gear is used on every charter. Fish cleaning by the first mate is available for a small fee (50-70 cents a pound), depending on the amount of fish caught. You can also ask the crew about custom fish mounts done by Gray’s Taxidermy!

A 5% military discount is available on all charters.

Fish Dance Sportfishing Charters are there to provide you with the most comfortable and effortless charter experience, except reeling in the fish – that’s why they need you!

I'm a native Floridian, Army Veteran and lifetime fisherman. My Dad took me fishing with him when I was barely big enough to crank a reel! We shared a passion for fishing and I was able to do the same with my 2 sons. Now as a charter Captain, I get to share it with people of all ages and backgrounds from all over the world! My career allowed me to travel across the US and different countries, so I had some unique experiences fishing everywhere I visited and lived. In 2015, I retired from a 25 yr career with the City of Wilmington because I wanted to do something I thoroughly enjoy in the later part of my life- fishing everyday! I've been the owner and operator of Big Game Charters for over 20 years and would rather be on the water than behind a desk. I give 110% on every charter because I'm very competitive and want to catch the most, the biggest and the best fishes out there. We catch 'em all big or small, but I prefer a lot of big ones! We're making charter fishing great again.
