Best Fishing Trip I’ve Ever Had!

My family and I fished with Captain Trae for the Great American Grant Hunt fishing tournament this past weekend. Captain Trae not only made sure that we placed in the tournament, but also that we caught a huge variety of of fish. We caught mangrove snapper, kingfish, hogfish, grouper, and a shark! It was a trip we won’t forget and we will definitely fish with Captain Trae again!

3/4 of the day with Cptn Trae and first mate Denise

Best fishing day ever. In short, it was like fishing with really skilled friends. With a kickass boat. Outstanding!

Top Knotch was great!

Had a great time with Capt Trae. Great day of fishing with a large catch. Trae knows his fishing.

Best day offshore

We showed up to the dock about 10 minutes early and captain Trae was fueled up and ready to leave. We hit the the out. The water was glass so it was pretty much full throttle the whole way there.

First couple spots the bite was slow. But we found a little school of mahi and landed a few of those. Knocked one of the bucket list. Trae worked hard for the fish we caught that day. Every spot we would only hit one or 2 keepers so we kept moving. It paid off though. Monster red grouper all day. Almost got our limit of red snapper as well and many other varieties of snapper. One of the spots we even found a big school of amberjacks and all of the guys took turns landing one just for the experience of fighting a tank.

Denise was a wonderful mate. Hooks were baited before every stop. She was back and forth all day making sure every one of us were baited and accommodated. I’ve never seen a deck hand better than Denise .

I’ve fished quite a bit offshore and I’ve never had such a good day, even with the slow start. It’s one to remember for sure, and I will keep booking with captain Trae like I always do.

Best fishing experience!

Captain Trae is a phenomenal fishing guide. He is very knowledgeable, professional and friendly. Me and my boys limited out on both red snapper and grouper easily. I highly recommend Trae to anyone looking for quality fish along with a great experience!

Great Time with Top Knotch!!

As an enthusiastic fisherman on Long Island, it was great to see a captain and crew experienced in getting to the fishing grounds, anchoring up, and putting fish, “lots of fish” in the cooler. Trae and Trevor worked well together and we had a blast. The boat was a fish machine!! Huge center console that was more than enough room for the 5 of us to fish, even when we had 2-3 fish on at the same time. The best fish of the day was a 35 pound amberjack caught on light tackle. It took 45 glorious minutes to reel in. The best fight I’ve had in years!!
