Guests will receive a world class fishing experience with Double Threat Charters. Anglers relax the second they leave port from Coconut Grove. The "Double Threat" is tournament rigged and ready to fish, while simultaneously spoiling our customers. This boat underwent an extensive refit during 2017. This fishing machine has 150 gallons of livewell space, a tuna tower for an improved vantage point, triple spreader outriggers, state of the art electronics, an immense fish box to ice your catch, and more. With an air conditioned cabin, a head (toilet), shower, and full list of appliances (freezer, refrigerator, and microwave), leisure was not compromised for fishing ability. In addition to spotting fish, the fly bridge is great for enjoying the view. Feel free to read more about our boat here: The Boat.
Kite fishing for sailfish, trolling for dolphin, bottom fishing for snapper, drifting for sword fish, and live baiting for tuna are just a few of the many techniques we employ with ease. The Double Threat is armed with meticulously maintained equipment from the leading manufacturers in the industry. With top of the line Avet, Penn, and Shimano reels, we won't be caught under-gunned. Our line is always freshly spooled, our hooks are sharpened, and our knots are tested. With a healthy mix of tournament-style fishing without sacrificing comfort, our guests are in store for a world class experience. We offer a variety of different charters to accommodate your schedule, experience level, and the time of year which you can read more about below.
Half-Day Fishing Charters
Half-day charters are a great option year round unless you want to catch dolphin during the summer. Otherwise, there are plenty of fish 3-5 miles out. If you have young anglers in your group, a tight schedule, or you are unsure about motion sickness, half day trips may be your best bet.
3/4 Day Fishing Charters
¾ Day Fishing Charters are another option. This popular trip is a great option year round. It gives us more flexibility than a half day without the price tag or the exhaustion of a full day trip.
Full Day Charters
Full day charters are recommended during the summer months (May- September) or for hardcore anglers during fall-spring. They offer great value in terms of cost per hour.
In addition to full day charters, we offer extended full day trips, swordfish trips, cubera snapper trips, and more. These charters are weather dependent and typically reserved for hardcore anglers looking to knock a particular species off their bucket list.

The only time half days are a bit tough is during the dead of summer for guests who are specifically looking to target dolphini. Target species during half days include but aren't limited to sailfish, kingfish, tuna, cobia, amberjack, sharks, and more. Half days are typically reserved for 6:30 am-10:30 am or 1:30-5:30 pm.

During the summer, we usually go for our limit of dolphin and take a few drops for broadbill swordfish. This trip is a great option year round for hardcore anglers to get their fix. Expect a tournament style atmosphere as we work toward filling the box and putting flags on the outrigger.
* Feel free to inquire about tournament rates!
Swordfishing Charters- $2,300 (10 hours)
Hands down the most challenging species of fish to catch offshore Miami is the broadbill swordfish. Oppressive runs, impressive jumps, and extended fight times are all expected from a healthy swordfish. Often reaching weights of over 300 pounds, a Miami swordfish serves as the pinnacle of all angling accomplishments. Methods for catching swordfish vary based on the time of day. By day swordfish lurk in deeper water, and a bait must be sent nearly 1800' below to the waiting predators. The rules change when the sun goes down though. At night the swordfish rise from the depths to feed near the surface. our crew takes advantage of this opportunity by setting six lines at varying depths in hopes of intercepting a hungry broadbill. Sword fishing trips aboard the Double Threat guarantee a safe and exciting experience whether you choose to fish during the day or night (or both). And when that broadbill does eat a bait, you're in for a battle you'll never forget. Swordfishing charters are about 10 hours long to accommodate the extra distance to the fishing grounds. Book today and experience big game fishing at its finest. Check out some of our swordfishing success here: Miami Swordfish Charter You should also Read more about Swordfish
