​If you’re looking for a fun-filled​ day on the water with unforgettable memories, you’re at the right place with Top Slot Fishing Charters. Captain Dayron Plana fishes the inshore and nearshore waters all over beautiful southwest Florida. Hop aboard anywhere from Boca Grande, to Fort Myers, Matlacha, Sanibel, Cape Coral, or Captiva. Pick up locations can be arranged with Capt. Dayron.

Pristine mangrove shorelines, shallow flats, ​and miles of sandy beaches are a stone’s​ throw from the boat ramp. As a local, Capt. Dayron will guide you to the most lucrative spots​. From beginners to avid anglers, you’ll have all the help you need to land your next trophy catch.

Make yourself comfortable aboard the 2018 23’ Skeeter bay boat, powered by a 250 HP Yamaha​ outboard engine. The aggressive V Hull design will make for a smooth ride. The boat is equipped with the latest electronics, a trolling motor, and a power pole, to help you sneak up to the fish​ as quietly and close as possible. There is also be a cooler loaded with ice and waters, so all you need to bring is a snack, your favorite beverage, and lots of energy.

No matter your experience level or age, Capt. Dayron will make sure you have a memorable time on the water. Target some staple inshore gamefish, including Snook, Redfish, Tarpon, Trout, and many more. Nearshore reefs and wrecks are also filled with many drag-screaming and rod-bending sport fish, such as Amberjacks, Snappers, and Groupers. If you want to test your endurance and skills, we can accommodate a deep sea offshore fishing trip as well.

Capt. Dayron will be thrilled to show your kids, family, and friends a piece of our little tucked away paradise. Eco-tours​ and sunset trips are also available​.

Top Slot Fishing Charters is incredibly thankful for those who serve and have served our country, so military personnel and first responders can receive discounts.

My passion for ocean life came to me at a young age. Born in Cuba, I was always surrounded by water. Our yearly family vacations were spent at a beach house. We would dive, snorkel and fish all day. Fast forward 25 years and I am still fascinated with marine life and all the wildlife that surrounds it. I decided to take a leap into becoming a fishing guide because there is no better office than one behind the helm. Now I get to share my passion with others as we make everlasting memories. Nothing better!
