We love what we do and fish at a tournament style pace during every single trip. We run the boat hard, fish hard, and work hard. Our reputation means everything and we are dedicated to showing every group how exciting sport fishing can really be. There are less expensive charters out there but these business models place an emphasis on saving fuel, bait, and getting back to the dock.
Our approach is just the opposite. We punch it to where we need to go and use whatever techniques necessary to put you on the fish. Depending on the conditions and time of year, we kite fish, wreck fish, troll, sight fish, deep drop, and more. We have fine tuned every technique and mixed top of the line equipment with an experienced crew. This allows us to to catch fish by doing what's necessary, not convenient. We push our crew and boats to the limit, all while maintaining a positive atmosphere and teaching you along the way.
Sportfishing is always met with different variables. Winds, currents, and weather patterns are constantly changing. Our charters take these variables into account while simultaneously considering customer preference. We target every species in Miami including tarpon, sailfish, snapper, sharks, mahi-mahi, swordfish, snook, kingfish, tuna, and marlin to name a few.

Interested in Deep Sea Fishing for up to 6 People?
With a custom rigged 43' Hatteras for Deep Sea Fishing and a 21' Bay Boat to conquer the flats, we are ready for anything. Don't let our tournament style approach intimidate you, we predominantly fish light tackle and make the most elusive gamefish a reasonable target for even the most inexperienced anglers. Your safety, comfort, and enjoyment are our only priorities from the moment you contact us. Unlike most multiple boat operations, we are owner operated and take our reputation very seriously. There are less expensive charters online but you won't find a more experienced crew, well kept boats, or positive atmosphere.
Just went out w/ the crew at DTFC for two days (inshore 1 and offshore the other). I understand August isn't the best time of the year for deep sea fishing but our inshore day was great. Day #1 we did 4 hours inshore and we got 2 Jacks and 20 or so Barracuda's. Anywhere from 3+ feet to smallies. Captain Jack was great, started out super slow then we smoked them for a good 2 hours. Day #2 - went off shore and managed to get a number of Mahi (probably 10-12ish), couple Bonito's and a few small tuna's. Overall the crew worked super hard to catch us fish. Been on a number of charters and this was up there with the best around. A/C on the boat was super helpful for the hungover boys. Hopefully going back to do some Marlin or sailfish in April!!
Awesome crew and experience. Highly recommend.
I STRONGLY RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY!!
My son and I scheduled a trip on May 12th. When we arrived we were told by the Captain that the boat had a mechanical issue but rather than canceling the trip he wanted to try to put us on some fish. Because of the issue we were only able to fish for an hour and fifteen minutes so it was very unproductive to say the least. Captain Ryan and his first mate were extremely kind, apologetic and considerate! The next day the owner, Nick, called me personally to apologize and refunded nearly the entire trip fee. This company TRULY cares about their clients and that’s very rare these days!!
I will recommend ANYONE going to Miami for a fishing trip to call Double Threat FIRST!!! I can guarantee you that I certainly will!!!
Thank you Nick and Captain Ryan!!!
An excellent experience in all ways. Ryan made the sign up easy and is a great Captain. Christian is a great first mate. Boat is excellent, clean and safe and very efficient. We went today with three experienced fisherman who like to go "catching' not just fishing. We caught: Sailfish, Bonito, Amberjack. The kite fishing made for a new experience and we had great teachers. We will be back
Our trip was amazing. Chris worked his butt off to keep the lines out and fish on the hooks. This was a bucket list trip we will cherish for the rest of our lives. Thank you Nick and Chris!
It’s that time of the year! As the cooler months move in, the fishing is red hot out of Miami. These are the months that make the best times for a fantastic experience on the water. This is a perfect time to book your trip for the upcoming winter season!
What does winter fishing in Miami offer?
To be honest, no, we don't spend all year looking forward to August fishing. We can't count on every day being epic but we NEVER KNOW what to expect on a given day. As slow as some days can be, the reality that the next bite could be a fish of a lifetime is what keeps us coming ...
The summer doldrums are here bringing calmer wind and warmer weather. June-September is typically the calmest time of year off Miami with slicked-out days being the norm rather than the exception. We may sneak in a few days of kite fishing but they are pretty much stowed until the coming fall. Our best bet for most of the summer involves ...
What sets us apart from other Miami fishing charters is our tournament style approach and encouraging atmosphere.
We will put you on the fish.
Captain Nick Gonzalez
As the son of a pilot, Captain Nick Gonzalez grew up traveling and fished in various locations from the Outer Banks to Hawaii. Nick has caught nearly every species in the Atlantic and has a wealth of knowledge about the sportfishing industry. He has a young face but has spent over 15 years fishing in Miami's waters as a recreational angler, professional mate, and captain. Nick captained the Blue Yonder (his first boat) during many tournaments and managed plenty of first place finishes. He takes a tournament style approach to every charter with intentions of out-fishing the fleet every day. His passion is contagious and he enjoys sharing his knowledge with others. Over the years, Double Threat Charters has been featured in Marlin Magazine, InTheBite Magazine, Florida Sportfishing Magazine, Coastal Angler Magazine, and more. During 2018, Captain Nick received the distinguished honor of Top Release Captain for Atlantic Sailfish as well as Top Release Captain out of all the Charter Boats in South Florida. At just 25, he was the youngest captain to ever receive these awards. During 2019 he repeated this honor by tagging the most sailfish out of anyone in the Atlantic. When Nick isn't fishing, he is usually writing for different magazines or doing freelance marketing.
Captain Kristjan Must
Kristjan grew up in New Jersey spending his weekends chasing striped bass, blue fish, flounder, and just about any cold water fish he could get his hands on. He always knew that there was more in the world than cold weather and crappy fishing so after graduating from college with a degree in nuclear engineering (he's way over qualified for this job), Kris joined the navy. He spent 6 years on tour while traveling through Asia and the Middle East in a nuclear submarine. After serving his country Kris made a big move to sunny South Florida where he could pursue his lifelong passion of fishing in a tropical climate. He settled down in Miami Beach where he began chasing tarpon, snook, and sharks from his kayak (yes, a kayak). He built a very strong local presence while targeting these exotic species on a small boat with light tackle. Before long he dove head first into the charter fishing scene where he began working with some of the best captains in the industry. Kristjan is a well rounded individual and capable of tackling just about any obstacle when it comes to boat work, photography, graphic design, and more. He's great with people, witty, and it's always nice to have a mechanic onboard.
Captain John Prahl
Captain John Prahl is a fourth generation Miami native. He has over 20
years of experience fishing in the backcountry of Miami, Florida. He grew
up fishing the waters of Miami’s Biscayne Bay, the Florida Keys, Dry
Tortugas, Flamingo in Everglades National Park, the Gulf of Mexico, Florida
Bay and Whitewater Bay, as well as in the canals and urban waterways. South Florida provides one of the most diverse and challenging, but also one of
the most prolific recreational inshore fisheries in the world. John has the experience to put his anglers on fish during any time of year regardless of the conditions.
Captain Ryan Peters
Captain Ryan is a Miami native with over 20 years of experience fishing off of South Florida. To say he lives and breathes fishing would be an understatement. To this day, he is still one of the only members of our crew you will catch fishing on his days off. Ryan loves the challenge of sportfishing because it always provides new opportunities to learn and challenge himself. He has caught just about every species that swims and prides himself in always having a trick up his sleeve on slower days. Some of his notable catches include mako sharks to 500 lbs, swordfish to 450 lbs, goliath grouper to 600 lbs, as well as sharks, marlin, and more. Ryan has phenomenal eye sight and is definitely a threat in the tower while sight fishing. Don’t let his mellow temperament fool you. Ryan has a competitive attitude and the grit to out fish any captain off South Florida on a given day.
With such a wide variety of species off the east and west coasts of South Florida, you never know what you're going to catch. Below is a detailed species list of the many game fish you may encounter during an outing with Double Threat Fishing Charters.
