Captain
Troy Smith

Member since July 2019 Ocean City, United States
Background
I have been fishing offshore for at least 35 years in the ocean waters from North Jersey to South of Ocean City, MD. A few years back, I had decided to get my captains/masters license since we were always going offshore fishing. I enjoy watching others catch fish and the new excitement each new group brings. Just in the past 3 years, we started competing in tournaments. Our boat is a double Captain/Masters boat with my wife Debbie being the second Captain. We both enjoy doing the women’s tournaments hosted in the OC area (Heels and Reels & Poor Girls Open).
Techniques
We mainly troll for Marlin, Tuna, Wahoo, and Mahi. We also deep drop for Tilefish and Black Sea Bass.
