“Great First-time Trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2012

Stayed in Miami for a week and have always wanted to deep-sea fish, booked a half day private charter with Captain Nel and First mate Mario, had a great time, boat was clean and cool inside, caught a beautiful grouper and plenty of bonito, wish we could have stayed out all day!!! Highly recommend!

“Excellent Twilight Tuna Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2012

Went with one bud from work and we are both noobs at fishing. Captain Nel and First Mate Mario (along with peons Eric and Louie) did a great job walking us through what to do at each step of the way and also we just had fun lounging around with them in the AC room.

Although it was late in the season, these guys did their best to find Tuna in the area and we ended up bagging 5 large (30lb +) blackfin along with catch and releasing a small mahi-mahi and a large sailfish. At one point, we had 3 fish on the line and ended up bringing all three in under the expert guidance of Louie while Mario was forced to chum the waters.

The fish was delicious (they will fillet the fish for you on the dock) and was even better once we brought it to a local restaurant "Shoji Shoji" which made a lot of dishes out of the meat for just $20.

These guys were a lot of fun and I would upvote them with high confidence.

“Bachelor party fishing trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2012

On the last weekend of April we chartered Top Gun to take us deep see fishing for my buddies bachelor party and we had an awesome time. The boat was clean, well presented and didn't feel like a big corporate charter. The captain and staff were extremely nice and professional and it was a great experience. During our half day trip, we were fortunate enough to catch four dolphin & two sailfish. It was definitely a great experience, and I'm looking forward to doing it again. If I happen to plan a fishing trip in the Miami/Key Biscayne area, it will be with Top Gun.

“Excellent Days Fishing with Top Gun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2012

I just wanted to write this article and let anyone interested know what a great time my son Bradley and I had when we went out with Captain Nel with Top-Gun.

From being greeted at the pontoon and introduced to the boat and crew we were made very welcome, our first task of the day was to go some way offshore to catch our own live bait which, with the captain & crews assistance, was achieved, with Bradley catching probably 75% of what was required.

We then proceeded to cruise to deeper waters where, once reached, we drifted over wrecks and coral ledges in search of fish, Bradley found success with this method and caught his first Amber-Jack weighing in at around 35lb, later in the day we trawled and I found success bagging a 50lb Sail Fish that gave an immense fight.

Bradley and I have fished in many locations in our travels and found the Skipper and crew to be very knowledgeable in all methods of fishing, the equipment was top quality and would recommend the charter to anybody considering a fishing charter.

Well done captain Nel keep up your exceptional hard work.

“The man can find fish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2012 via mobile

Anyone whom considers fishing for a work event or pleasure needs to experience the "TOP GUN". From an avid intro boarding the boat the to eye of an eagle when tracking fish. Boy was it an experience. Nel Martinez does not skip a beat, when we were not on dolphin we were searching for sailfish. Not to mention the boat is impecable. Thanks for the experience.
