Top Gun Charters Miami - Top Gun II

Fishing from the lovely fishing town of Key Biscayne, Florida, Top Gun Charters is your ticket for a time to remember. Captain Nel Martinez has been fishing these waters for many years, and you can count on him to show you the hottest bite around.

His boat is the “Top Gun II,” a 45’ Hatteras offshore sportfisher vessel that will make sure you’re fishing the deep waters in style. She’s powered by a pair of 500 HP Cummins engines, and has recently been completely refitted from the bottom up. She’s got an air-conditioned interior and a pair of private heads, convenient for longer offshore trips.

The Top Gun II was made to tackle deep waters teeming with big fish, and that’s exactly what you’ll be doing! Trophy pelagics are the name of the game around here, so expect to go after the likes of Sailfish, Marlin, Swordfish, Mahi Mahi, and others. Those in the market for Tuna will have a great time kite fishing for the biggest Blackfins around.

Top Gun Charters will provide you with everything you’ll need for a successful trip on the water. This includes rods, reels, terminal tackle, and the necessary fishing licenses. All you need to do is bring a pair of polarized sunglasses and some sunscreen. Feel free to pack some drinks and snacks too, if you’re so inclined.

The crew will work tirelessly to make sure you have a great time on the water, and a 20% tip for the mate is customary. Take a trip in these awesome waters and you’ll be hooked for life!
