My party and I (4 of us) had an excellent day of fishing out of Fort Lauderdale yesterday aboard Top Shot Fishing's formidable fishing yacht "Happy Day Today". Captain Tom and First Mate Brandon worked extra hard to get us hooked up with several amazing fish. The vessel is comfortable and very "passenger friendly" with all the equipment you need... More

Had an excellent time aboard Hooked Up II with Capt. Lou and first mate Zac! Zac VERY knowledgeable about all aspects of boating, fishing and Florida waters! Caught many fish, Capt. Lou constantly roaming the waters for the best fishing spots! Would definitely do this again.

We (my 16 year old son and 14 year old daughter) chartered the Happy Day for a four (4) hour morning trip. My son was really hoping for a sail fish but was surprised and thrilled when he reeled in a 6 foot Bull Shark! They were also able to pull in a 50 plus pound Amber Jack! Quite the... More

We (2 couples) had planned to head out on Monday (March 6) but it was really windy (20-30mph with gusts to 40mph) was really blowing. Capt Tom advised that he would fish, but it would likely be uncomfortable due the rough seas. He suggested we re-book for Wednesday afternoon (March 8) which we did. Action was great on Wednesday .... More

Tom and Dave worked very hard on a slow morning! We caught 2 Bonita then the "Big one"....a 92inch Sailfish while kite fishing. You have to understand that it's fishing, not catching. It was extremely slow but that is not the fault of Tom and Dave. These guys know what they are doing and they want more than anything for... More

Had a nice trip. I wasn't able to hook my dream sail fish but Captain managed to make sure I got to reel in some fish. I caught quite a few small tuna.

Thank you, Kurstin, for your review on Tripadvisor. Sorry your dream Sailfish did not appear - hopefully, it will be there on your next charter - but I'm glad you caught quite a few Tunas. You may not have noticed but there is a sign posted on the boat in the salon about the gratuity for the mate. Thanks again,... More

The Captain and First Mate did an excellent job managing our fishing trip. We caught two Blackfin Tuna. Fished hard for some other fish, unfortunately the fish weren't cooperating. We tried a variety of different methods and presentations. Dave did an excellent job switching up the lines and bait. It was also the first time I have tried kite fishing.... More

Thanks, Dwayne, for your great review on Tripadvisor. I agree - too bad the fish gods were not cooperating that day. I'm glad you had the opportunity to see what kite fishing is all about - it's a great technique used in South Florida when all conditions prevail. We take pride in our Topshotfishing team being very organized with their... More
