Captain Troy Wetzel
Captain Troy loves what he does, and does what he loves! He 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. 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!
Captain John Duplass
John has grown up in South Louisiana. Since he was a small boy, he has been an avid fisherman. His first memory of fishing Venice was when he was 4 and went fishing with his dad. He attended and graduated from Holy Cross High School.
Because of his deep passion for fishing, John decided that after graduation he would begin working in the charter fishing industry, making a living doing what he loves.
He spent more than 5 years working with other captains, deckhanding, and learning everything he could about charter fishing, the Gulf of Mexico and its fisheries. During that time, he married his high school sweetheart, Katie, and they had a son, who shares John’s love and passion for fishing.
In 2014, John became a licensed charter fishing captain. He has worked with Louisiana Offshore since that time. John fishes both offshore and inshore, and absolutely enjoys sharing his passion for fishing with his clients!
Captain Andre Boudreau
Captain Andre has been fishing and hunting in South Louisiana his entire
life. He attended Baylor University, but he realized that he was too far away
from his passion and love of fishing. So he returned to Louisiana where he
attended and graduated from University of Louisiana, Lafayette, in 2008.
After graduation, Captain Andre returned back home to pursue his true
dream profession, Offshore Fishing.
Captain Andre has fished all over both South and Central America waters.
He learned outside skills and combined that knowledge with his own
techniques, making him an exceptional angler.
He often travels to fish Offshore Tournaments, recently winning in both
Billfish and Tuna classifications. When he is not offshore fishing, Captain
Andre can be found fishing inshore, deer hunting, and duck hunting. He
truly is a Southern Sportsman with a passion that shows in all of his outdoor
