It allowed me to enjoy the entire trip without running constantly for the camera (besides... More

I highly recommend Captain Troy, Texas Steve and Distraction. A family oriented operation that keeps you safe and puts you on fish. This was a bucket list trip for me and they made it very enjoyable. Awesome!!

We all caught King or Spanish Mackerel and had it for dinner with Captain Troy's seasoning. Stephen never tired of his endless job of replacing hooks, lines, fish. It was an... More
