Tripl3 Threat Fishing Charters–18'

Tripl3 Threat Fishing Charters offers memorable fishing trips for families, pro anglers, and novices alike! Captain John Hurst will always strive to make your fishing trip with him an enjoyable and unique experience.

Your guide has spent most of his life fishing in different waters and trying out various techniques, and now he gets to share that knowledge with his customers. Whether it’s exciting fishing action you’re after or just a relaxing excursion with your family, Capt. John will make it happen.

There’s a wide range of trips you can choose from, including chasing Tripletail, nailing that Inshore Slam, and going after Tarpon. Other favorites you can hook on your expedition are Redfish, Black Drum, Spanish Mackerel, Black Seabass, and the list just goes on. Suffice to say, if you’re a passionate inshore fisherman, you’re going to have a blast.

You’ll be fishing out of an 18’ flats boat with a 115 HP Yamaha engine, ready and capable to take up to 3 people to the red-hot bite. There are navigational electronics to lead the way, as well as a live bait well to keep your live bait at hand at all times. The captain will prepare all the fishing equipment you need, including rods, reels, tackle, and lures.

Capt. John loves having kids on board, so you’re welcome to bring them along and bond over fishing. Snacks, drinks, and licenses are included in the price, as is catch cleaning and filleting.

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.
