We had a corporate outing for 12 people. Janet handled the bookings for flights in and out of Miami and Key West, our transportation from the airports to Marathon,our lodging and dinner reservations for four days. Everything was done very professionally and the icing on the cake was the superb fishing we all experienced. We are already planning next year's trip.
Thanks

My husband and I recently visited Marathon Key, FL. During our visit we booked a fishing trip with Top Notch Sport Fishing. Captain Ariel and 1st mate Reed were fantastic. We caught several different types of fish and had a wonderful lunch on our catch. We loved it so much we booked another excursion a couple of days later. I didn't think we could top what we had done however, Captain Ariel came through. My husband and I both caught 100-150 lb. nurse sharks. What a thrill. We caught several other types and again enjoyed some of our catch for lunch. I strongly recommend this Fishing company. We plan to use them again when we visit in January

I would highly recommend Top Notch Sport Fishing to anyone looking for a charter that is very professional with excellent equipment and boat but most of all a great captain. We went
with Ariel for 1/2 day on 7/9 and asked him to take our family of 6 out reef fishing.
The experience was great, Ariel put us on fish immediately, the four kids and my wife had an absolute blast catching very nice sized snapper, a couple grouper and two sharks to boot.

We are a fishing family and have been on numerous charters and I would rank this as one of the best experiences not just because we caught a lot of fish but because Ariel is a real professional who demonstrated great patience with the kids and was more than willing to answer any questions we had about the fishing or the area. We hired Top Notch because we had heard very good things which based on our trip was spot on.

Do yourself a favor if you are in Marathon and wanting a great fishing experience call Ariel.

Capt Roger took us out for a half day trip that we enjoyed so much we extended it to a 3/4 day. Really got into the yellowtail - everyone in the boat was pulling them in. We've chartered a lot of different trips all over Florida and this was one of the better ones. It takes two things to make a trip memorable. Obviously number one is you've got to catch fish, that's why your there. Second thing is the guide. Their primary job is to put you on the fish but it's also important that they be personable and quickly tune into what your expectations are. Capt Roger was very pleasant and worked hard to give us what we were looking for. Lots of patience and clearly wanted us to have a good trip. Give him a try! One final thing - Top Notch is well located and close to the fishing grounds. Less time running and more time fishing.
