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, etc. 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.
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.
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.

I really wonder how the Miami baseball franchise previously known as the Florida Marlins ever came to be. It's clear the founders had little to no fishing experience off Miami because quite honestly, our marlin fishing sucks. Don't get me wrong, we catch HUNDREDS of billfish each year. We have a thriving sailfish fishery during fall, winter, and ...
Summer Fishing on the Way!
The global circumstances definitely put a dent in spring fishing but that doesn't mean we won't be getting out on the water soon. Summer fishing is right around the corner! With calmer than average weather and great fishing, summer is definitely a great time of year to get out on the water. I'...
Yes, We're Still Open!
There is no better time to get outdoors for a private fishing charter. Our boat is thoroughly cleaned between every trip and our crew is healthy. The fishing is stellar this time of year with sailfish, blackfin tuna, kingfish, and more. A private fishing charter to catch dinner is an example of social distancing at ...
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. When Nick isn't fishing, he is usually writing for different magazines or doing freelance marketing with his firm Full Spread Consulting.
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.
