“"best fishing experience ever"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

we took the 5 hours in the afternoon with Captain Nel and had an amazing time. The bought was a lot of fun and both the Captain and crew were very friendly and great to hang out with. We caught various types of fish. I had never caught anything before on fishing trips and was so happy o have finally done so, After the trip Captain Nel cleaned the fish for us and recommended a nearby place where they cooked our catch. Overall great experience and will sure do it again once I am back in Miami.

Thank you again Captain Nel!

“Great afternoon out for 6 college guys!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Booked a 5-hour deep sea fishing charter this week with Captain Nel and his first mate Mario? for a birthday celebration for 6 college guys. The deep sea fishing excursion industry seems somewhat unregulated, so this trip was based entirely on this company/the captain's Trip Advisor ratings...so thanks Trip Advisor! Everything checked out with the captain, the boat, procedures, and fishing, and Top Gun did not disappoint. The guys had a great time, and at one point had 9 lines in between the trolling and the kite fishing. Although for the most part the fish were elsewhere, they managed to catch an edible size mahi mahi and a kingfish. Both fish were filleted on the boat. Captain Nel connected the guys to a restaurant down the street where the fish were prepared and cooked in several different ways and served up as a meal. The booking was made long distance. The captain was professional, returned phone calls/texts within a reasonable amount of time, and payment was made by credit card with an email confirmation. The first mate was knowledgeable about all angles of fishing and worked hard to make the experience a good one for those on board. The only comment was that the loo was not working which could be enquired about upon booking.

“Lots of bites!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Had a great day of fishing with Captain Nell, Mario and George. While the weather was not perfect (drizzle! ugh!!), our voyage was exciting and successful. Each of us (two couples) had the chance to reel in a nice sized fish. It was our first experience kite fishing - and grabbed a sailfish with that method. The crew was knowledgeable and SO VERY pleasant - and patient with us. :) The boat was comfortable and had a place to get in out of the weather when we needed to. If we fish again in Miami, we'll be doing it again with Top Gun.
