Managed by Troy Butler
Captain Troy comes from a family of fishermen. At the young age of 5, Captain Troy learned quickly about techniques for fishing large Redfish and Speckled Trout from his father who was a guide out of Aransas Pass for many years.
Captain Troy truly enjoys showing clients new techniques that he's learned over the years and that have been passed down from three different generations of fishermen.
Get out on the water with Aransas Pass native, Captain Troy for an unforgettable day on the water chasing Redfish and Speckled Trout!
Ready for the trip of a lifetime? Let Captain Troy show you where the monsters lurk around Aransas Pass. As a 3rd generation Aransas fishing guide it's safe to say that Captain Troy knows how to get his clients on fish, and big fish at that! His passion is chasing tailing reds, and his 23' Majek was custom-built in 2017 to that effect. With an incredibly small draft of 6'' while still and 4'' while on the move, he can follow those tailing reds almost anywhere to get you on 'em. The vessel can handle some mild chop as well, and, with a Mercury 300hp Pro XS on the stern, can rip a clip of 50 knots to get you to the fish quick! Captain Troy will fish anyway that suits your fancy. He is a master with artificial lures and loves repping local brands like Nacho Daddy's Spoons and 3JD Soft Plastics, both of which are out of Aransas Pass. He'll throw live bait to attract those peskier fish, and he loves to see his clients hook into a big fish on the fly! Moreover, he provides all the equipment, lures, bait, and flies you need to guarantee your fishing success. Your day will start before the sun comes up and will be spent exploring the renowned flats and inshore bays around Aransas. So whatever flavor you choose, go out for a full day with Captain Troy to chase big reds, speckled trout, and if you're there August-October even the Silver King. Read More
Troy was very knowledgeable and absolutely the best guide we’ve ever used! He knew the bays and put us right on the fish. Very personable and accommodating. Another trip was booked while we were still on the water!
My 9 year old sons first red fish experience was awesome! Capt Troy was a delight. Knowledgeable and very helpful.
Sometimes the fish are biting sometimes they are not. Either way if you go out with High Tide you will be treated to best that can be offered. Captain Troy is a hard working man with your enjoyment as his goal. Experience in his job and making sure his clients have a great time are Capt Troys hallmark. …
We had two somewhat experienced adults and two neophyte teenagers in our party. Capt Troy worked hard to locate and put us on fish. In spite of the full moon overnight and a hard wind, all four of us put fish into the box. (Trout and redfish prepared at a local restaurant were delicious!) Capt. Troy is an excellent companion and a very good teacher. We all learned a lot from being with and listening to him. I will emphatically book with him again. His... More …
