5-Star Ratings

Our sportfishing charter boat and team has earned the reputation as being one of the top charter boats in the State of Florida due to our many years of experience. Our numerous satisfied customers can be seen on TripAdvisor and Google. Our goal is always to provide you with a fishing charter experience that is fun and exciting.

Major Fish Migrations

There are three major fish migrations each year in South Florida. The first migration starts with sailfish in the months of December through April. The second migration is in the months of May through July where we have a great shark run and the third migration is in the summer months with mahi-mahi and wahoo.
 
Keep in mind there are plenty of other fish that transit the waters off Fort Lauderdale throughout the year such as: cobia, blackfin tuna, king mackerel (kingfish), bonito, barracuda and swordfish.

Fishing Grounds

We are fortunate to have very deep waters within 2 miles of Fort Lauderdale. Our offshore waters are also home to over 100 shipwrecks and 23 miles of reefs found in 30 to 300 feet of water. This makes our unique marine environment an angler’s paradise.

INCREDIBLE experience both times Ive fished with these guys! First trip out with Captain Dave we caught a delicious tuna for dinner that night. And the second trip with Captain Ian, we caught a sailfish within 5mins of dropping a line in the water and then a massive hammerhead shark! Both times within a 4hour charter!

Captain Dave and Dave the mate hooked us up with a great time. We caught 7 tuna and despite the rain and weather had a great time. Had a buddy come in from Montana and he had never been offshore fishing. It was a lot of fun and these guys come highly recommended. I definitely recommend going out with Happy Day Today. Cheers.

Our party of 6 had one of best days on the water fishing with Captain Dave and First Mate Ian. Dave knew exactly where to go to catch the Black Fin. Ian literally gave 100% plus in rigging the rods. Ian has a great personality and taught us so much about fishing. Dave runs a very professional charter fishing service and the boat is solid with access to a refrigerator for sandwiches and beverages. They even provided another cooler full of ice. We caught Black Fin and Bonita, we didn't land a big one, but Ian's recipes for Black Fin were spot on. We will definitely return next year and recommend them to others. Thanks again, Jim, Darla, Amanda, Chris, Jason and Alicia

This is the third time going fishing with Dave at Top Shot Sportfishing. Each time has been fabulous. We had a great time and caught fish every time. Dave knew where to go and what to do. We caught black fin tuna and mahi mahi and swordfish. Dave and his mates are very hard workers and never give up. We highly recommend their services. Great boat very professional. Thanks!!
