About Captain Troy

Captain Troy Wetzel loves what he does, and does what he loves!


Captain Troy was born and raised in Southeast Louisiana, which is known for being a sportsman’s paradise. As a small child, he used to play on the shores of the waterways near his home, catching turtles, fishing, and crabbing. He grew up playing football in the position of middle linebacker for the nationally acclaimed John Curtis Christian School. Despite the recruiting efforts of many top universities, Captain Troy decided to attend Tulane University, a local college, to remain close to his family and friends, and play football for Tulane. After graduation, he tried out for the National Football League, but injuries prevented him for playing for the league.

Shortly after graduation, Captain Troy bought his first boat. A group of spear-fishermen from the Hell-Divers chartered his boat to go spear fish out at the rigs in the Gulf of Mexico. Fascinated by this sport, Captain Troy became an exceptional diver and master spear-fisherman. While he continued to charter his boat to divers and anglers, he obtained his 100 ton Masters Captain’s license from the United States Coast Guard.

Captain Troy has spent more than 20 years perfecting his skills as an offshore fisherman, fishing guide, and superior spear-fisherman. Specializing in Venice LA fishing and Louisiana offshore fishing, he holds both state and world records, both personally and professionally from his boat. Captain Troy’s goal for every charter is to catch the most fish and the largest fish! He loves what he does, and it shows!
