When we booked TopShape for June 20th and I told the guys two of them, (Dom and Joe) were so pumped up and couldn't wait to get on board. When we boarded that morning we were in awe of how beautiful the boat is it has all the amenities that you would need along with top flight fishing gear. Capt... More

We had a great day....hooked a marlin but it got away. Although there were no actual catches, we still had a blast. Even saw some pilot whales. Thanks guys for allowing us to spend the day with you. We will definitely be back and recommend you to our friends. From your Texas Friends, Carl and Chris.

We had a wonderful experience on the TopShape boat with Captain Al and John. My kids (aged 7&9) had so much fun and really enjoyed our half day excursion out on the water. The boat is amazing and lives up to all of the reviews! Although we didn't catch the "big one" they made sure that we each caught a... More

I must say that big game fishing with Captain Al and John was an adventure. I’ve been fishing for over 40 years (primarily freshwater) and nothing to-date comes close to catching a water beast such as a marlin. Our group (see June 20th / Watta Day" post by Dominador) landed two on June 20th one at 150 and the other... More

Had a great experience with Topshape. Captain Al and Captain John were great and worked hard at catching fish. The boat was just incredible and the equipment was first rate. It will be an experience we will never forget. Oh and we did catch a Marlin and a Spearfish. You won't go go wrong with Topshape

This is the best charter boat I have ever been on. Captain Al and John are the best guys to go to if you want to get stoked on fishing. If you want to learn a few things or just talk fishing these guys are the ones to ask. These guys know how to put you on some fish. The... More

My wife and I went fishing with Captain Al and John last week. We caught a nice striped marlin, which is rare in the summer. The boat is beautiful and has every amenity from air conditioning to a Bose sound system. The guys are both accomplished men who can converse on subjects ranging from fishing, to college football, to real... More

A buddy and I had a full day charter with Captain Al and Captain John. It's always great to fish with people who love fishing as much as you, and they really do. I'm not a big fan of trolling, but that's the way to fish for billfish, so I figured we might as well fish on the most comfortable... More
