“Real fishing”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

Have been fishing the Top Gun since 2003 and never looked back. The boat is well equipped and not too fancy, this is a good thing on a fishing charter! Nothing worse then a Capt. telling you not to eat inside, not here! Capt Nel knows the water and will find you the fish! Our last trip was epic 6 sailfish and a 170lbs swardfish!

“Great fishing experience”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

Me and 3 mates wet on the Top Gun the other day for a 5 hour trip. We've never done kite fishing before and were amazed at the hard work and precision it took to get it right. We started off getting some live bait then headed out only about 25-30 from shore. Within the hour we'd hooked onto 2 decent sized sailfish. Was an amazing experience trying to get them in. They put up a huge fight! But the crew was great and ensured we were doing everything right and made it as easy as possible for us to land them. We ended up getting 3 sailfish and lost one unfortunately. And we landed a 3 kilo mackerel as well. The crew sent us to a restaurant down the road where they would cook our mackerel for us. A great way to end the day! Overall was the best fishing experience I've had and would highly recommend! Although next time I would def do a full day instead!

“Top Gun was tops!!”
Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

Took my two sons (9 and 12) out for a 5 hour fishing trip with Capt Nel, Danny and Ryan and had a great day!! We trolled, flat lined and put out the kites - lots going on - brought in a sailfish, king mackerel and blue runners. Capt Nel was super and the crew could not have been better - knew what they were doing, taught us a lot about the fish, the tactics, and were very patient with the boys. Great boat - had A/C, head and all the gear you'd possibly need. Also saw a manatee and several pods of dolphin. These guys are great for serious fisherman and more casual outings. Great day out with Top Gun.

“AWESOME Trip!”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

The Top Gun crew did an absolutely awesome job. They were organized, really nice and took great care of us. During our day of fishing with them we caught over 20 Mahi Mahi! Our trip with them was the high point of our visit to Miami and we can't recommend them enough.

“Awesome Experience”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

We went fishing with Captain Nel and his crew for two days in early November. We were there to celebrate a friend's 50th. I told Captain Nel when I hired him that our goal was to have my buddy catch a Sailfish. The weather for our trip was not ideal - little rain, lots of wind and very rough seas (10-15 foot swells). That didn't stop Nel and his crew. They fought the rough seas and showed an amazing dedication to making our experience the best it could be. Best of all, my buddy landed a monster! If you want a captain and crew that is totally focused on you and making your fishing experience the best, look no further than Top Gun Fishing Charters.
