Venice, La
Trey Pique - Boat
I can’t think of any job I’d rather be doing than chartering a boat in the Gulf of Mexico!

Every day brings something new on the open ocean, as I try to figure out where the fish will be and how to get them into the boat. I love it when customers tell me that I took them on the best, most memorable fishing trip ever…and I love coming back to the dock with the best catch.

I began running my own boat in early 2007, and it didn’t take me long to realize that people come on fishing trips to have a good time and to get away from work and other stressors. Ultimately, my goal is to ensure that everyone on board has the best time possible…and I love giving people an experience they’ll never forget.

Born and raised in Metairie, Louisiana, I’ve been hunting and fishing all over southeast Louisiana with my father and friends for as long as I can recall. In high school, I became interested in studying law, but deep down, I wanted to be a guide. After graduating from Jesuit High School in New Orleans, I went to work for my father doing construction and home remodeling. That lasted for about three and a half years, during which I also spent part of my time studying law. Finally, though, I realized that I wanted to pursue my ultimate dream of being a charter captain.

My professional philosophy is to do whatever it takes to produce a great fishing
trip – don’t be afraid to run or stay late. Personally, I live by Ricky Bobby's credo,
“If you’re not first, you’re last.”

In January 2008, I boated my largest wahoo, which weighed in at 94 pounds, and in 2009 my largest yellowfin, which weighed in at 231 pounds.

When I’m not chartering, I love to spend time with my wife Melissa, who’s a registered nurse at Ochsner Medical Center. I also love to fish (go figure!) and hunt. The marshes of Venice and Buras are my favorite places to duck hunt, and I also go there to bow hunt for deer. Three years ago, I was introduced to the best of both worlds – hunting underwater. Now, I try to go spearfishing every chance I get.

Even though I’m the youngest captain among my colleagues, my tenacity, passion, and competitiveness push me to be a better fisherman every day. Day in and day out, I’m in competition with myself, with my goal to do better and be better than I was on previous trips.
