The most productive charters can be customized with the captain’s input and suggestions, depending on the time of year and what is biting. I will make suggestions depending what the angler wants to catch.
All experience levels and all ages (young and old) are welcome. I am very good with children and would love to teach and share my knowledge of fishing - especially on our Kid Friendly Fishing charters. Let me know your interests and preferences and I will customize a charter for you! Find an appealing package and give me a call. All Three Sides Charters will satisfy even the most seasoned anglers and provide them with an excellent opportunity to expand their knowledge. Locals are welcome aboard to learn specific techniques for species they've had trouble targeting in the past. Experienced guests are welcome to bring their own gear if they desire.
South Florida is the subtropical part of the Florida peninsula. It is surrounded on three sides by water. Each side constitutes a unique fishing environment.
I am Captain John Prahl, a fourth generation Miami native. I have been fishing All Three Sides my entire life. I 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. From the urbanized Gold Coast to the east through the shallows and reefs of Florida Bay and the Florida Keys to the south and the wilderness of Everglades National Park on the west.
South Florida provides one of the most diverse and challenging, but also one of the most prolific recreational fisheries in the world. Each area is accessible and fishable year round in a wide variety of weather conditions for day trips from your home or hotel.
All Three Sides Charters and Captain John Prahl is licensed and insured to fish all of South Florida waters, including Everglades National Park. In addition, one of the boats holds federal moratorium licenses, allowing charter fishing in federal waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Fishing on wrecks and reefs in the Gulf of Mexico targets a wide variety of species ranging from smaller Snapper to giant Sharks and Goliath Groupers which can exceed six hundred pounds. Productive fishing in the Gulf of Mexico requires knowledge, preparation and the proper licenses to access this exciting fishery. More than a few of the fish here will try to rip the rod right out of your hands.
