About the Captain

Troy Warren
Islamorada, Florida, United States
ID & License verified
96 Customer Reviews
Response time 1 hour
Member since January 2017
Captain Troy has been fishing since a very young age. Nearly 50 years ago his parents introduced him to fishing the small trout streams of southwestern Pennsylvania. That’s how it all started. After high school he moved to Florida and began fishing the New Smyrna area, that’s where the salt water addiction began. The Capt. Has fished the east coast from Florida to Maine including some inland waters such as Lake Ontario, Erie and Michigan. Fished the Chesapeake Bay for trophy rockfish and out of ocean city, Md. Into the canyons for the big blue fin tuna. Outer banks of North Carolina into the Gulf Stream for all the game fish that strive there. As good as the fishing is in all these places, nowhere compares to Islamorada, Fl. Where the captain now calls home. Truly the fishing Capital of the world.
