We went out on a 6 hour trip with good conditions forecasted but as we got farther out the conditions got rougher and went from 2 ft waves to 5 ft waves so the bottom fishing was not going to be enjoyable. Captain Troy asked if we wanted to change the trip to 4 hour trolling trip and we all... More

There are so many charters to choose from in this area, as a parent you want your entire... More

I wanted my sons to experience the thrill of fishing in the Gulf that my own father had given me 50 years ago. Captain Troy and first mate Corey did not disappoint. The experience and family bonding they provided was priceless.

Two adults and four first time deep sea fishing teenagers. Troy and Cory just took them under their wing. All I can say is the kids... More
