Miami Fishing Charters- "No Fish is Safe"

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.

  • 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

    going with Double Threat. You won't be sorry!

  • 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.


    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 Captains

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.

Target Species

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.
