Just booked!

Texas Hawgs Bass Fishing Guide Service takes you to some of the best Bass spots in Texas and even the country. Operating just outside of Austin, they are perfectly placed to get you on the Lone Star State’s incredible mix of Bass species.

Captain Bryan Cotter has been guiding for 20 years and enjoys taking out all levels of anglers, from the beginner to the most advanced. He also takes a lot of kids out and loves getting them into the sport. For him, Bass fishing is one of the best things you could ever get your kids started on.

Ride in style on one of the best bass boats on the market. Capt. Bryan’s 21’ Phoenix has room for 5 guests to spend the day in comfort. She comes powered by a 250 HP Mercury motor to get you to the fishing grounds at speed and is loaded with equipment for once you get there.

The boat features cutting-edge electronics, including the latest Humminbird Solix graphs. She has a livewell to keep your bait fresh if you’re using it and quality rods and reels from Shimano, Pflueger, and Pelican to let you fish with confidence against even the biggest lunker Largemouth. In short, she has everything you need to reel in a monster.

There are plenty of monsters out there, that’s for sure. The sheer variety of species you can catch is incredible: Largemouth, Smallmouth, Spotted, Striped, White, Hybrid – they’re all here and they’re all biting hard.

Capt. Bryan is passionate about maintaining this awesome fishery so he always released healthy Largemouth to let them fight another day. You can keep some tasty White Bass if you want to, though.

This is your chance to explore one of the best freshwater fisheries in the country. Take on an amazing mix of gamefish with an expert guide who works hard to make your day special. If it sounds like the perfect Bass fishing trip, it probably is!

    Evening trips are designed to get into those late day feeding fish. Sometimes these trips are into the dark or completely in dark depending on your start time. You can request to start later than listed or I might suggest it later for a better experience. My evening trips are usually on Lake Travis, Decker or LBJ normally.

I have been fishing and hunting my whole life. I love getting people on their first or biggest fish. I also love getting kids into the sport and watching those big smiles when they catch a good one. I love a good topwater bite whether it's using a frog or a hard bait such as a spook. I also like throwing crankbaits and jigs. They seem to catch a lot of the bigger fish.
