Captain
Troy Butler

Member since August 2016

Aransas Pass, United States

Background
My fishing experience runs deep in our family. As a five year old boy, I learned quickly about techniques for fishing large reds and specs. My father was a guide out of Aransas Pass for many years. I am a pro-staff member with Backlash Custom Rods. I truly enjoy showing clients the techniques, that I've learned over the years, and have been passed down to me from three different generations of fishermen. I am a USCG & TPWD certified captain.
Techniques
Absolutely love getting a client on artificial lures, and pointing out tailing reds. Have some areas of southern latitudes that pull 30'+ trout every year. All bait, tackle, and the means to get the catches are provided. Fish are filleted, and bagged for the clients after trip.

Mass of floating bamboo home to hundreds

Started out a little slow chasing shrimp boats in the Gulf. Then on the horizon, a floating mass of bamboo appears. As with any trip in the Gulf, anything floating always peaks interest. As we inch closer to the… Read Full Report →


Offshore slam

Trout and redfish bite are on fire.

Strictly an artificial trip, the reds and specs couldn't be stopped. Down South soft plastics for the trout. And Nacho Daddy's Spoons for the reds. Read Full Report →

We went fishing near shore looking to target Cobia, Tripletail, and Dolphin. We found them all and spent most of the day sight casting to these beautiful fish. I caught my first of each species with a few bonus species as well. Definitely one of my best fishing experiences ever.

Spent the first half of the day offshore trolling and had a blast battling several kingfish. After trolling offshore we headed back inshore to target redfish and trout in the flats which was both fun and fruitful. Captain Troy is an extremely professional and knowledgeable guide who was willing to share his knowledge to help me become a better angler. Captain Troy’s boat and fishing equipment were also very well maintained. Would highly recommend Captain Troy to anglers of all levels. Can’t wait to book again myself!

Had a great time guys. Super low tide, and abnormal weather patterns didn’t help with the fishing. Definitely got to see a monster black drum.  Till next time.

Thanks again for booking with High Tide Adventures Guide Service. Truly enjoyed meeting all you, and look forward to our next. Fishing was a little tough, but pulled through with some really nice fish. Till next time Kay.

Overall experience was enjoyable. Riding around to different fishing holes was fun. The only downer was we only caught 2 fish. We keep getting catfish which he said is not good so we have to let it go. He tried bring us to many spots but no luck.

Capt. Troy was completely professional and committed to helping us find fish. The weather was terrible- cold wind and fluctuating conditions- and the fishing was hard. But Capt. Troy stayed with it, working hard to help us find fish. Finally, around 4 PM we got into a monster Black Drum. That turned a miserable day into a gem! Through it all Troy stayed positive and committed and encouraging. He is a really nice guy and a gifted fisherman. We will definitely be back!

This was my second time out with Troy, and both times I have had a blast. He has worked his tail off trying to put me on fish. I HIGHLY recommend going out with him. I will definitely be booking more trips with him!

Great captain. Not only puts you on fish but teaches you how and where to find them.  Bait or artificial fishing. Boat and equipment very well maintained. Great experience. Highly recommend Captian Troy Butler and High Tide Adventures.
