About the Captain

Travis Paxton
Port Richey, Florida, United States
Member since April 2016
I have been involved in the fishing community since my father introduced me at 3 years old. He fished multiple freshwater tournaments while I was growing up and from then on, I've been hooked! I've fished the Greater Tampa Bay Area since 1997 with my family and learned from the top guides in this area. I acquired my USCG Captain's License at the age of 18 and I haven't looked back since. I have many years of experience when it comes to tournament style fishing. I have fished in the Professional Tarpon Tournament Series held in Boca Grande Pass, Florida and I've also fished multiple inshore tournaments in the Tampa Bay area.
