About our Miami Fishing Charters
The Top Gun specializes in kite fishing, trolling, live baiting, and wreck fishing the waters of Miami, Miami Beach, and Key Biscayne. Fishing in Miami, FL is very seasonal as most of our pelagic species are “highly migratory”. Be sure to get in touch with Capt. Nel to find out what’s biting now and what to expect on your trip. Full day fishing trips allow the Top Gun to travel farther to less pressured areas, while half-day trips keep us in proximity to the edge of the gulf stream. If you’re planning to fish in Miami, FL for the first time, be sure to give us a call to learn more about the types of fish we can target based on the season.
Our 5 hour half-day charters allow us to fish for varied species, and allow us to fish from North Miami Beach to the Gateway of the Keys: Fowey Rocks, Brewster and Star Reef. Typical half-day charters run from 7am-12pm or 1pm-6pm*
Our 8 to 10 hour full-day charters allow us to travel farther and fish longer. On this full-day charter we can venture out up to 20 miles into the Florida Straits or we can visit some great fishing spots known to produce plentiful and large fish; such as Triumph, Ajax and Pacific Reefs.
