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.

Captain John was beyond wonderful! He reached out a day prior to confirm our booking and go over any details and answer questions. This was our first time fishing and I’m 6 months pregnant. Captain John truly made our first time fishing memorable and safe! My 7 year old son told me this was his favorite vacation EVER! Looking forward to do it again! Thank you!
Incredible time out with my wife and two boys (11,14) - got a monster sailfish (7.5 ft), a giant shark and a bunch of bonito and snapper - awesome day - Capt Ryan and Chris were the best - highlight of our vacation and will def do it again
AMAZING TIME !! We Did the charter today with Chris and Ryan and what an amazing experience. These guys are on a different level, you can tell this is what they do all day everyday, they know where to go and how to get done and have fun doing it. Expert kite rigging what a cool experience. Thanks “Double Threat” !!!!!!!!!!!!!
My 3 sons and I fished with Double Threat two days this past week.
Ryan and Chris were on our first charter and we released 4 sailfish on
that 3/4 day. Lots of great pictures and videos of the action.
The next day out we had no time for pictures or videos as we were hooked
up almost constantly on the 3/4 day. We caught 13 sailfish, 3 to 4 of us hooked
up at a time. And also 4 decent size Bonitas. Captain Nick and another mate
Matt joined our crew and were great.
We have fished with Double Threat at least 6 times over the last 8 years and
this crew always fish like they are in a tournament. Very professional and efficient
and we ALWAYS catch fish!! They have also refurbished the boat recently and
bathroom and it looks great and is very comfortable. I highly recommend
Sailfish have been hot this winter. We’ve been averaging a few sails per day with 15 on our best day so far this season. Recently the big kingfish have been around as well. During the last week we landed a 48 pound kingfish as well as 50 pound kingfish during the early morning kite bite on the local wrecks. The best thing ...
Diving in The Sailfish
After the fiery start to the sailfish season, the sails have started to heat up even more in South Florida off of Miami. This past weekend we have had 3+ sailfish on each trip with a 14 sailfish day 2 weeks ago.
Besides the Sailfish on the kites, there has not been as many bites from other species such ...
One of the most common questions we get on and off charters is “what are we going to be fishing for?” or “what do we catch”. Here in Miami, winter brings fishing that everyone gets excited for. With the winter months comes kite fishing, and with that brings lots of sailfish. This time of year is ...
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.
