Explore the bountiful waters of Miami Beach with Top Knot Charters. Captain Ramon Sobrado is a third generation of fishermen in his family and the skill is practically in his blood. He has been dedicated to fishing since he was a young boy and enriched the experience that came from his father with the experience of his own. He’ll take you on a fishing trip, regardless of your skill level, as anything can be learned on spot.

Come aboard a 37’ SeaVee center console that accommodates up to 6 guests. This boat is completely new, built in 2019, and powered with the strength you would usually find on a much larger boat. There are 3 powerful 350 HP Mercury engines that will get you wherever the fish are in no time. With the latest navigational electronics, trolling gear, a fighting chair, and a live bait tank, there’s everything you need for a great day of fishing.

Captain Ramon offers a variety of fishing trips and there’s something for everyone: from short inshore trips for beginners, to offshore tours for anglers who want to challenge themselves, and multiday trips for hard-core fishermen. Target Snook, Tarpon, Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, and lots of other species, whatever will make your day!

Your fishing equipment, bait, and lures are fully covered. If you want to catch fish on a fly, make sure to request fly fishing equipment in advance. Bring your own food and drinks, or order them from the captain for an additional charge. He can also pick you up for a small fee.

Top Knot Charters is the secret ingredient to turning your vacation into an adventure. Just pick one of the trips!
