Get up close and personal to some inshore denizens as you stealth around in a Kayak, rod in hand, with Captain Troy leading the way!...Read More
Boats can't get to these fish at the lowest tides so these fish have very little pressure and are often very happy and hungry. Most the time you'll be site fishing to them: looking for the fish, seeing them, and then casting. While other times Captain Troy will take you to a secret honey hole where he knows the fish will be laid up.
Captain Troy has two kayaks with access to more if need be. For the most part though he prefers to cap his adventurers out at 2 in the kayaks so he can provide the same great guide service without being stretched to thin.
Per Captain Troy, Kayak fishing is nice exercise and a great way to fish and observe the beautiful nature and wildlife surrounding St. Augustine.
Captain Troy usually likes to fly fish but you can do spin and bait as well. No matter the technique Captain Troy simply thinks like a fish and will show you how to hook into them. Troy has won half the fly fishing tournaments he's been in.
Meet-up locations depend on the time of year, tides, weather, and of course where you staying, so make sure you're in contact with Troy in the days leading up to the trip to confirm.
Captain Troy was born and raised in the great state of Oklahoma, and started fishing when he was 3 and "bending the long rod" when he was 7. He has won First Place in 70% of the fly fishing tournaments he has entered, and placed 2nd place out of 430 kayakers using fly fishing gear only. His fly fishing prowess is hard to match, but it's not simply the skill of wielding a fly pole that has led to his success, it is his innate ability to think like a fish! His tremendous understanding of fish habits makes him not only an outstanding inshore guide but a terrific offshore guide as well. Captain Troy can truly do it all!

Best fishing day ever! We told Captain Troy we were serious about getting "keeper" fish to eat, and he did not disappoint. A full 12-hour trip into the Atlantic got us 46 delicious keepers (variety of snapper species, Jacks, Cobia, trigger fish, and more) with plenty of non-stop action, thanks ...Read More to Troy's laser-focus on the fish. He provided good coaching on the best methods to drop our lines and haul up the bounty. He kept the boat on top of fish continuously, and had us haul up our lines as the boat drifted off so he could reposition the boat back over the fish. We literally spent no time at all just hanging out waiting for bites in an empty ocean. He knows some good spots; for the most part we were the only boat on the water as far as the eye could see; we only noticed a couple of other boats wander over toward us in one location. Action also included fighting with one or two giant groupers (line snapped off before we could get them to the boat) and a couple of small sharks. It got exciting when we had to quickly haul in a snapper to save it from the jaws of an impressive 6-foot hammerhead. Overall an exciting, successful, exhausting day on the water from sunup to sundown. Enjoyed grilled Cobia and Jack kabobs for dinner that evening.

Yesterday, we spent nearly 10 hours with Captain Troy on his fishing boat. There were nine of us, all family, and we had a great time. Even though the weather wasn’t perfect, Captain Troy did all he could in his power to see that we all caught some ...Read More fish. Many of our family had never taken a fishing excursion this far out in the Atlantic, Captain Troy made the trip worth while. A bonus for us came when we saw a huge giant sea turtle, dolphins came with a few feet of the boat, and a couple barracudas wanted to share our bait. If you are looking for a family experience on a fishing boat in the St. Augustine area, I do not thing you could find a Captain with better fishing equipment or personality.

Captain Troy has been one of the more enjoyable guides I’ve had the pleasure to spend hours on the water with. He met us at the ramp on time, took us to catch bait where we caught tons of live cigar minnows and a few pin fish. Fish ...Read More were a little tough on the bite but Captain Troy no novice to uncharted waters taking is to spots that many other anglers probably weren’t familiar with as their were no boats. We were a good ways offshore targeting big fish and good quality eating fish as I did day we wanted something good to eat. We caught a couple sea bass that were delicious. Tons of Red snapper although not in season I would recommend booking a trip if you got the chance as Captain Troy knows where to find the big ones. The seas were right and Captain Troy made it all the more comfortable with his navigation skills. All of his gear is top notch and well maintained to avoid any loss hookups. Book was nice and clean and plenty of ice for our catch. Obviously the 55 inch Mahi we got was the kicker to our day. But having a good guide makes a trip the best and we will plan our trips in advance with Captain Troy to assure another great day on the water!!!
