Our Captains & Boats

Captain Troy

Captain Troy loves what he does, does what he loves! He has loved fishing and hunting since he was a small child. For years, Captain Troy aspired to play professional football. In high school, he attended and played football for the power-house John Curtis Christian School. In the mornings before school, he would go crabbing, and in his free time he would fish, run gill nets, and shrimp. After many colleges scouted him for football, Captain Troy chose to attend and play football for Tulane University so that he could stay close to his family and friends. After graduating from Tulane, he got injured at try-outs with a national football league team.

Immediately, Captain Troy bought a boat and began fishing. He was chartered by a group of spear-fishermen from the Hell-Divers Spear-fishing Club to go out to the rigs in the Gulf of Mexico to spear fish. Captain Troy was intrigued by the sport of spear-fishing. He tried it, and got hooked! As a superior athlete, he worked diligently to become an experienced scuba diver and master spear-fisherman. While taking out dive charters, he obtained his 100 Ton Masters Captain's License from the United States Coast Guard. Then he built a new custom 42' by 18' fishing and dive boat, tough enough to handle the roughest Gulf seas and perfect for his offshore charters and dive trips.

Captain Troy has spent more than 20 years perfecting his skills as an offshore fisherman, fishing guide, and top-notch spear-fisherman. He holds state and world records for fish he caught personally, and professionally from his boat. He has never been late for a charter or missed a day a work. Again, Captain Troy loves what he does, and does what he loves!

Captain Hunter

Captain Hunter grew up in Lakeview in New Orleans. He loved baseball, and after high school, he went to Delgado Community College to play. While at Delgado, he started working as a deckhand in Venice on the weekends and in his free time. He had never fished blue water and offshore, but he grew to love it. Realizing his baseball career was coming to an end, he started working more.

Then Hurricane Katrina hit Venice. Captain Hunter moved to Destin, Florida, where he immediately began working as a deckhand. Though he enjoyed the beaches and sunshine, offshore fishing was not the same. He missed fishing out of southeast Louisiana.

Captain Hunter returned to Louisiana for the 2006 Winter season. He aggressively worked with the best captains in the industry and has mastered offshore and blue water fishing. Captain Hunter obtained his 6 Pack Captain’s License from the United States Coast Guard as he kept perfecting his skills and learning new tricks of the trade. He seized the opportunity, and the rest is history, so to speak.

Captain Hunter is an exceptional captain with the skills of long-time seasoned professional. He holds the State Record for Big Eye Tuna at 198 lbs and was the mate for the State Record Yellowfin Tuna.

Captain Hunter specializes in bottom (rig/wreck) fishing, big game trolling, and day/overnight tuna and sword-fishing charters. He just built and now runs a custom 40’ aluminum catamaran hull boat with (2) 350hp Yamaha 4-Stroke engines. It is fitted with the finest equipment.


Captain Eddie

Captain Eddie grew up in Slidell, Louisiana, and began working as a fishing guide at age 20, while he was attending the University of New Orleans. After graduating from college, he realized that he was passionate about fishing and wanted to pursue a career in fishing. So he obtained his 6-pack captain's license from the United States Coast Guard and became a full-time offshore/Blue Water fishing guide in Venice, Louisiana. Captain Eddie purchased a 36 foot Palmetto with twin 250 Yamaha engines, which handles well when he travels miles out into the Gulf of Mexico.

He loves what he does, and it shows! His favorite fish to catch are fighting freight-train 200 pound Yellowfin Tuna, whopper-sized 100 pound Wahoo, and super-sized 300 pound Swordfish.


Captain Josh H.

Captain Josh grew up outside of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Loving the outdoors, he spent most afternoons hunting, riding horses, and fishing fresh water and bays with his father and uncle. Then, at age 16, he went on his first offshore fishing excursion, and after that trip, he couldn’t get enough of it! That was more than ten years ago.

Since obtaining his 6 Pack License from the United States Coast Guard several years ago, Captain Josh has been fishing out of Venice. He absolutely loves what does, and it shows during his charters. His favorite fish to catch is the Yellowfin Tuna because, in his opinion, pound for pound, Yellowfin fight harder than any other fish in the Gulf.

Captain Josh runs a 2013 38 ft Sea Hunter, which is powered by triple Yamaha 300s.. She cruises to get you on the fish in no time!







Captain Trey

Captain Trey grew up in New Orleans and has spent his entire life fishing the coastal waters of Louisiana. Knowing he loved to fish and realizing just how good he was at it, he decided to get his 50 ton USCG certified captain's license and became a charter boat captain.

Captain Trey fishes both offshore and inshore charters. He now runs this fine 40' yellowfin with triple engines. He also runs a 24' Yellowfin with a 350 Yamaha 4 stroke engine outfitted with all top of the line gear and Raymarine electronics.


Captain Brittin

Since his early childhood, Captain Brittin has loved fishing and hunting. Growing up in South Louisiana, he fished year round on the weekends, and during the spring and summer months, he stayed on and fished from his family's houseboat kept at the Chandeleur Islands. As he got older, he pursued big game saltwater fishing in Mexico, Costa Rica, and the United States.

Captain Brittin's respect for the fabled Redfish and Speckled Trout of the Louisiana marshes led him back to Venice, Louisiana. When he was 18 years old, Captain Brittin managed a large corporate fishing lodge on a movable barge in Breton Sound. There, he developed expertise in wade fishing and finding the big speckled trout, cobia, and redfish around the numerous oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico.

Captain Brittin earned his United States Coast Guard Captain's license soon thereafter and began running inshore charters from Venice on his 24 foot Pathfinder Tournament Edition, powered by a 250 Yamaha Four-Stroke engine. He uses only the finest Shimano rods and reels, has a full tackle box of varied lures, and always has live bait when available.

Whether catching an 18 pound Redfish on a fly rod or pitching live croakers to monster speckled trout, the richness of fishing out of Venice, Louisiana, is apparent on early morning trips with Captain Brittin. You can catch many different species of fish in every month of the year in South Louisiana's marshlands and the nearby Gulf waters, including but not limited to Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Drum, and Sheephead. Captain Brittin's enthusiasm and love for fishing coupled with his knowledge and skills make him an excellent inshore fishing guide.


Captain Chris

Captain Chris is a Plaquemines Parish native, and he has been fishing Venice waters his whole life. As a captain, he has been part of the Venice fishing scene for years, and he is well known for his extremely likeable personality and ability to catch fish. He fishes year round and fishes both offshore & inshore.



Captain Rodney

Captain Rodney was born and raised in lower Plaquemines Parish of Louisiana in a town named Port Sulphur. He has always had a love for nature and outdoor activities, particularly fishing. He owned his own flat boat by the age of 12, and he and his friends would cruise the bayous after school and on the weekends looking for some action.
After graduating from high school, Captain Rodney attended Marine Mechanics Institute in Orlando, Florida, where he trained to become an outboard technician on marine waterrafts.

After graduating, he returned to southeast Louisiana, working for various marine companies. He realized that he loved being on the water so much that he studied to obtain his 100 Ton Masters License from the United States Coast Guard. After obtaining his captain's license, Captain Rodney purchased a 20' by 8' Alumitech airboat and began running charters on the weekends and in his free time.

As his business developed, he obtained a second airboat for others to run. After nine years working as an outboard technician, he decided to become a full-time captain and bow-fisherman. Captain Rodney has worked as a bow fishing captain for the past 8 years, accepting charters seven days a week, year round. He promises that he will make sure that you have the most memorable experience when bow fishing with him!
