Sundance Sportfishing

1996 Overseas Highway
Marathon FL, United States

Sundance Sportfishing operates out of Marathon, FL fishing the calm bays, deep blue seas and stunning living reefs the area is famous for. The Florida Middle Keys are an angler’s heaven, with a huge variety of fish to be found from the moment you leave the dock, and Sundance Sportfishing make the very most of that fact by fishing in as many different depths and habitats as possible.

The vessel you will be fishing aboard is the “Sundance Eagle”, a 35 ft Bluewater center console with plenty of room for 6 anglers. Powered by not one, not two, but three 300HP Evinrude E-Techs, she can cruise at a staggering 47 knots, and her deep v hull design means she stays nice and steady even at speed. The boat comes equipped with GPS, fishfinder, a livewell, and a full spread of outriggers, downriggers, and centerriggers to make sure you have the best chance possible out on the water.

Sundance Sportfishing specializes in light tackle fishing over a range of environments. Depending on what you want, you could find yourself anywhere from 3 ft of water wrestling with monster Tarpon and Permit, to way out in the Gulf Stream doing battle with huge Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Sailfish and more! Though they specialize in light tackle fishing, Captain Bobby Brown and his skilled first mate know that every fish is caught differently, and so also provide high quality Penn, Shimano, and Fin-Nor heavy tackle gear, as well as all the equipment for trolling, spinning, jigging, kite fishing, and even fly fishing if that’s more your style!

Captain Bobby has been guiding the area for over 35 years and knows all the best spots. He has rigged his boat to get the very most out of what the area has to offer, so there’s no better captain and no better boat for pulling in the very best the Florida Keys have to offer!

I hired the sundance team on my recent trip to Marathon. We left the dock at 8AM and headed due south from 7 mile bridge. We started trolling about 8 to 10 miles offshore. We tried a couple of weed beds before finding a few smaller Dorado’s (Mahi). Since we were finding smaller fish we headed further offshore. Seas were about 3-4 foot and the boat handled it well. We started finding larger fish, and we managed to get a billfish on the line. Before it snapped off, apparently the mono on that setup was old. Overall we put 15 keeper Mahi in the icebox, came home with about 30 lbs of fresh Mahi. I would repeat, but ask that they check the gear a little better so big fish dont snap off so easily.

We took a trip offshore in search of dolphin.  Unfortunately, they weren’t schooling for us and we only boated six.  However, with two bulls, there was plenty of fish.  Willy and his mate Adam worked very hard to put us on fish and, although, we wanted to catch more we had a great trip.
