Native Bass Fishing Charters – Lake

Are you looking for a first-class Floridian freshwater adventure? Come aboard Native Bass Fishing Charters! You’ll head to the Butler and Conway Chain of Lakes to fish for hundreds of Largemouth Bass during the day, or trophy Bass around the dock lights at night. USCG-licensed Captain Austin Keaton has 11 years of angling experience under his belt, so he’ll teach you all the tricks of the trade to have you reeling in the catch of your dreams!

The excitement of putting his guests on fish is what drives Capt. Austin, and he loves introducing fellow anglers to his favorite freshwater fishing grounds, located just a stone’s throw from Orlando. Whether you’re a seasoned fisherman looking to reel in your trophy Bass, or want to take your family on the adventure of a lifetime, Capt. Austin warmly welcomes you onboard his charter.

You’ll be traveling on an 18’ East Cape flats boat. She’s custom built with a V design that’ll keep you and your gear safe, comfortable, and dry. She can accommodate up to 3 guests, and her oversized front deck means that you’ll all be able to fish at the same time. She’s luxurious, too – onboard, you’ll find cushions, a built-in cooler, bluetooth speakers, a custom SeaDek, and plenty of dry storage.

Your vessel is powered by a 115 HP Mercury Pro XS engine, making long runs shorter, which means you’ll have plenty of fishing time! Dual power-poles and her remote control i-Pilot trolling motor system contribute to the ultimate fishing platform, so you’ll be in for a treat when it comes to sight fishing for your dream Bass.

Capt. Austin provides only the very best fishing equipment for his guests. You’ll be decked out with light tackle Star Rods paired with Penn reels. Want to fly fish instead? Your captain will equip you with TFO fly rods paired with Sage reels. Live bait, drinks, and your fishing license are also included. Join Native Bass Fishing Charters and get ready for the freshwater adventure of a lifetime!

Captain Austin Keaton grew up in Orlando, making him a Florida fishing native. He is a US Coast Guard Licensed Captain who has 11 years of knowledge and experience fishing the Butler and Conway Chain of Lakes. His life-long pursuit for Bass, Redfish, Tarpon, Snook, and Sea Trout makes for an exciting, educational, and safe time on the water for everyone! Capt. Austin always knew he wanted to become a fishing guide. He loved introducing friends and family to his favorite fishing spots when he was growing up, in order to share his passion and knowledge with them. The excitement of putting someone else on fish drives Capt. Austin to become a better fishing guide every day. Capt. Austin's passion for fishing is rooted in the heart of Orlando, located a stone's throw away from Disney, Universal Studios, and the Convention Center. He is only an hour from world-class saltwater fishing, as well. Catching these fish on light tackle, spinning, or fly makes for an incredible time on the water!
