One of the top first-class charters in Miami and Key Biscayne is Top Gun! Top Gun is the best of the best. Captain Nel makes every day full of fun and excitement and plenty of fish. With the Gulf Stream so close, the fishing possibilities are endless.

Born and raised in Miami, Captain Nel has been fishing since he was young. He has a true passion for fishing and loves taking out charters and hooking them up. He knows with his knowledge and expertise and the fish available here that you will be back time and again.

Top Gun Charters has two beautiful Hatteras Sportfishing Yachts, the 41′ Top Gun and her big sister, the 45′ Top Gun II. Both vessels are state of the art with the latest in fish finding and sonar equipment. They were built for speed and made for serious fishing. But they are also built for comfort, with air-conditioned salons for resting while not fishing. But who wants to do that when there are trophy fish in the water?

Miami is famous for its Sailfishing, and Top Gun is one of the top charters for catching these fun, fast fish. Along with Sailfish, the waters have all the other trophies you dream of; Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, Sharks, Marlin and Swordfish. There are also plenty of reef fish in the many reef systems and wrecks that dot the coast; Snapper, Grouper, Amberjacks, Cobia, Mackerel and Sharks.

Kite fishing is the technique of choice for Sailfish, but Captain Nel has a lot of techniques for different fish. Trolling, Run and Gun, Deep Drop, and Day/Nighttime Swordfishing are just a few.

Top Gun offers so many different charters on both boats. Half-day charters will get you out on the water and give you an excellent time to fish the reefs and wrecks. Full-day charters will get you deeper off the coast, where you can concentrate on the monsters out there. There are also charters specifically designed to target one or two fish, like overnight Tuna trips and day and night Swordfish charters. Captain Nel can also customize the perfect excursion for you to meet all of your angling needs. Trips to the Bahamas are also possible.

Captain Nel is a Daiwa Captain, so custom rods with state-of-the-art Daiwa reels, terminal tackle, dead bait, and ice and licenses are provided. Live bait is fished for on the way out. All you need to bring is sunscreen, polarized sunglasses, a hat or visor, white-soled shoes, a long t-shirt, rain gear, food and drinks, a camera, and seasickness pills if needed.

Let Top Gun and Captain Nel take you on a magical time on the Miami waters. You will leave with lasting memories and a cooler full of tasty fish.

    Came down from Charleston SC for a day of fishing. We fished September 12, 2023. Neal and Chris put us on the fish. We caught our limit and all left with sore arms from catching. It was an absolute blast. Boat was nice, great gear and a knowledgeable team. Very highly recommended

    We had a great 1/2 day on the water with Captain Nel and Chris this past Friday aboard Top Gun 2. Our group caught 10 nice size Mahi-mahi’s and 3 kingfish. It was a wonderful day with highly experienced fishermen under Nel. They were very attentive and patient with us at all times. I would highly recommend them.

    These guys know how to fish! Challenging weather/light conditions, plus having the fish move on from where they had been the past few weeks didn’t matter. They kept at it and once we got a strike we got the whole school of dolphin! Plus we got a barracuda for fun! Captain Robert found them and Chris and Marcos worked the gear like pros to set us up. Fantastic trip and crew!

    Capt Robert and mate Chris showed our bachelor party one heck of a good time. They put us on the fish no doubt and made the day very enjoyable for us. Can’t wait to come back down and go back out with these guys!

    My wife, son and I fished with Top Gun while visiting Key Biscayne. We had a wonderful time and my 11 year son and I tag teamed our first sailfish on 20 lb. line. The boat was awesome. The captain and mates were fantastic and we can't wait for a return trip with Top Gun.
