The offshore waters of Miami, Key Biscayne as well as South and Miami Beach play host to a great variety of big game species, all of which you can have the opportunity to target with Captain Nel Martinez and his 41’ Top Gun. Offering private Half and Full day deep sea fishing trips, specialty Tuna and Swordfish charters, as well as trips to the beautiful Bahamas and back, Top Gun is departing daily from the charter docks in Key Biscayne’s Crandon Marina.

Top Gun is a fast, sturdy and spacious luxury Hatteras, outfitted with roomy air-conditioned salon and a luxurious head, and powered by modern engines. The boat also features a toilet on board, and comes equipped with the standard marine and navigational electronics a charter might need, such as top of the line GPS, radio, Fishfinder as well as a multimedia system. 41 foot long, the boat can comfortably accommodate fishing groups of up to 6 people per charter.

From their dock in Key Biscayne all the way south to Key Largo’s Ocean Reef, Top Gun and Captain Martinez go where the fish are, and are committed to providing you with an unforgettable fishing trip. The Miami area is teeming with trophy pelagics, such as Sailfish, Marlin and Swordfish, Dolphin fish (Dorado), Tuna, Cobia, King Mackerel, Amberjack, Snapper, Grouper and many others. Nel is happy to provide you with all the fishing gear your group will need, along with both live and artificial bait. Nel is a member of the Daiwa Captain’s Program so you’ll be using Daiwa reels exclusively, wheres all the rods are custom made to the crew’s specifications.

Great day of fishing on Top Gun with Captain Nel.  Had food and drink ready for us upon arrival, Captain and First Mate were top notch on the fishing and we came home with a nice catch of Mahi Mahi.  Finished the day with filleting our catch and directing us to a restaurant just down the street that cooked up about the freshest fish dinner possible.  Our clients enjoyed the day and all agreed the fishing was better than golf the following day at Doral (for about a third the cost for six of us).  We’ll be back next year for another trip!

The captain was very nice and his first mate was great. Unfortunately, the captain said his fish finder was broken. The exhaust fumes added to my sea sickness. The first mate worked hard the old fashion way to find where the fish might be. Good guys overall.

Thanks for you review Ken.  It was not a fish finder that was broken. Both work great. Turns out that our fly bridge chart plotter was broken but I installed the latest and greatest in its place the next day. We have another in the tower though. Electronics can’t help us find the Mahi (Dolphin) under those conditions in Miami. When it comes to Mahi (dolphin) fishing, nothing beats binoculars in the cockpit to find the birds against the horizon.  Old school but it works. We caught a few Mahi and Tuna even though it was a challenging half day offshore.  I usually like to leave the Mahi fishing for full days since it sometimes takes a while to find the fish.
Sorry you felt sick but it was choppy. The only cure is to fish more!  Hope to see you guys again soon..
