About our Miami Fishing Charters
The Top Gun specializes in kite fishing, trolling, live baiting, and wreck fishing the waters of Miami, Miami Beach, and Key Biscayne. Fishing in Miami, FL is very seasonal as most of our pelagic species are “highly migratory”. Be sure to get in touch with Capt. Nel to find out what’s biting now and what to expect on your trip. Full day fishing trips allow the Top Gun to travel farther to less pressured areas, while half-day trips keep us in proximity to the edge of the gulf stream. If you’re planning to fish in Miami, FL for the first time, be sure to give us a call to learn more about the types of fish we can target based on the season.
Our 5 hour half-day charters allow us to fish for varied species, and allow us to fish from North Miami Beach to the Gateway of the Keys: Fowey Rocks, Brewster and Star Reef. Typical half-day charters run from 7am-12pm or 1pm-6pm*
Top Gun I Rate: $800

Both have cold air-conditioned salons with comfortable seating. They feature TV/VCR/DVD and CD player and Radio with Ipod dock. The Salons are a beautiful, comfortable escape from the heat, or a nice place to entertain and relax during and after a great day of fishing! Their galleys have been beautifully remodeled with granite countertops, a full refrigerator, microwave and range.
The head/bathrooms are clean, comfortable, and easily accessible.
Both boats are equipped with state of the art GPS and fish finder/sounder.
You can enjoy the view and breeze on the flybridge with the Captain, or go below to the cockpit, and be ready to enjoy the excitement and adventure that starts with the beautiful sound of the line being pulled off the reels by a big fish.
Their roomy cockpits are extremely comfortable for fishing and are equipped with a rocket launcher to help you hook the big fish! There are also 2 huge live bait well systems in the cockpit to hold as many live baits as we need to get you your catch!
Both “Top Guns” also have fully equipped Tuna Towers which allow the Captains the opportunity to drive from the tower and help guide you to your next Sailfish or Dolphin.
