What is a Boat Captain?

As a boat captain you will be sharing you years of fishing knowledge with the next generation of anglers. You will be able to instruct these young men and women in skills such as: locating fish, lure selection, color, and technique. There's nothing like hands on, on the water instruction.

The operation of the boat while the main engine is running is the responsibility of the boat captain, however once at your spot, it is up to the boat captain if the students will be allowed to operate the trolling motor.

​Your team will have to select their baits, make their cast, and retrieve their catch. You are allowed to assist with the netting of those hogs that I am sure you will have your team on. Remember, safety first, have fun and thank you for your support.


Welcome to our Boat Captain Page.

Here you will find all the information you will need to become a

Boat Captain.

Boat Captains are a very important part of the Central Texas High School Tournament Trail. Without anglers like you, giving of your time to support these young anglers, none of this would be possible.

The staff at CTHSTT would like to thank you for your support by drawing three lucky boat captains at each event to receive a gift card.

Another way we show our appreciation is by holding a Boat Captain Shoot-Out at the end of each season. Everyone that has boat captained at one of our events over the season will be invited to fish a one day tournament FREE OF CHARGE for cash prizes.
