Torwick's Guiding Service

Tyler, a local fishing guide in Austin, Texas, likes to consider himself a very well-rounded angler who doesn’t stick to just one style of fishing. A former president of the Baylor University collegiate fishing team and veteran tournament angler, Tyler is an experienced guide. He owns and operates Torwick’s Guide Service and offers his clients exciting fishing trips for Largemouth Bass.

With numerous podium finishes with the FLW college tour, Texas Tournament Zone, Media Bass, and several other trails, Tyler has the skills to teach you to fish like the pros. As well as putting you on fish, he will also instruct you how to effectively read sonars, download GPS waypoints from Google Earth on your computer, convert the file type, and import them onto your unit.

You will also be able to hone your fishing skills and learn a technique or two. Tyler will show some tried-and-true methods for breaking down a new lake, locating structure and fish, and figuring out how to catch them.

You will be exploring the deep and rocky Lake Travis and its clear waters with artificial lures or live bait. Your vessel for the day will be a 21’ Skeeter Bass boat, built back in 2006 and overhauled in 2017. The boat can cruise at a hair-raising 65 knots thanks to her 250 HP Yamaha SHO engine. There is plenty of space for up to 2 anglers.

The boat is rigged with an Ultrex 112 trolling motor, as well as with other navigational and fishfinding electronics to build up a clear picture of where the fish are hiding.

All trips come with the use of gear and tackle by Shimano and Dobyns, as well as lures. The only things you need to bring are a valid Texas fishing license and snack/drinks if you like.

My name is Tyler Torwick, I have been fishing all my life and it is a true passion of mine. I grew up begging my parents for rides to the local lake back home in San Diego, CA, and it's been an addiction ever since. I moved to Texas to attend Baylor University where I really got into competitive Bass fishing. I was the president of the Baylor University Bass fishing team and competed in numerous collegiate tournament including qualifying for the FLW college series national championship. After graduating, I moved to Austin and have spent my time learning the local lakes and gaining the skill needed to guide on them. In addition to guiding I also fish several large tournament trails throughout central Texas. I have numerous wins and podium finishes on the lakes that I guide on! If you are looking to refine your skills as an angler, or just flat out catch fish, I can help!
