Kids under 10 are free. With parent paid. Whether it’s a fun family outing or a day of hard fishing, Tripl3 Threat Fishing Charters will organize a trip to remember! With Captain John Hurst at the helm, you’ll get the chance to try out different fishing techniques, and have a great time while snorkeling and scalloping.

Hop aboard a 23’ Sea Chaser bay boat, rigged with a 200 HP Evinrude E-tec engine and everything you need for a productive day on the water. There’s room on board for up to 4 people to fish and relax, and all the angling equipment will be ready for you.

You can do some trolling, bottom fishing, or scalloping, depending on your preferences and how much time you’d like to spend on the water. There’s a variety of catch to choose from – Redfish, Black Drum, Cobia, Amberjack, even King Mackerel, and Mahi Mahi are all in the cards. Scalloping trips are available from July to September, if you’d like to get your hands on these tasty morsels.

Capt. John has abundant fishing experience with all levels and ages of anglers, so he’ll be able to adjust the trip to your needs and desires. He’ll provide drinks and snacks on the boat as well as fishing licenses, so you don’t have to worry about a thing – except maybe catching something for dinner.

If you’re coming with your little ones, they’re going to have an amazing time, and if they’re 5 and younger, they’ll fish for free. Tripl3 Threat Fishing Charters and Capt. John will go out of their way for you to have a memorable fishing adventure!

I grew up chasing fish from Sebastian Inlet all the way to Mosquito Lagoon. I've had the fortune to fish all over the States, and right now I'm running charters out of Panacea, which is a sport fisherman's paradise. Our family of anglers always has a bigger fish to catch and a better story to tell. From giant Tarpon to simple Trout, we're constantly proving that if it swims we can and will catch it.
