Member since December 2014

Clearwater, United States

Background
Living in Florida, I grew a passion towards fishing. It was something I thoroughly enjoyed doing from a young age and always dreamed of doing it for a full time job. Having the local knowledge and over two decades of experience in the area has given me the chance to turn my passion into my career and that is something I am thankful for everyday. Being able to give people the experience of catching trophy fish is what it is all about for me.
Techniques
Light tackle inshore fishing for Snook, Redfish, Trout, Tarpon, Hogfish, Grouper etc.

We had a great day out on the boat with Captain Austin! We didn’t catch much due to storms that had passed through a few days prior, but had a great time regardless! We would definitely spend the day out again.

Austin knew where to go and how to get us the fish!  He is obviously well experienced in the area and a pro at fishing. We left on a big high and we are eating our redfish as I type this.

Austin did a great job putting us on the fish, at one point we had a double hook up. Will definitely be booking again to get those redfish. Clean boat and top notch equipment.

Austin is a very knowledgeable guide and a nice guy. I appreciate the fact that he timed our charter with the tides to maximize our fishing,which worked out perfectly. Check out the pics
I would highly recommend giving Austin an opportunity to take you fishing

Captain Austin was great. we tried many different areas for different types of fish. Early in the trip we weren’t having any luck but he had lots of different spots and good communication with other captains. We hit a patch of jacks good fights but not keepers. We also caught some catfish. He kept us out an extra hour trying to get us some redfish but it was just to hot of a day they weren’t hitting. Will definitely use his services again.

The fishing charter with Capt. Austin went very well. It was a very enjoyable morning. We caught some Red Fish and Snook. We also caught a Jack and a Trout. Austin was a very good guide. He took us to a few different spots and we caught fish at every one. He brought bottled waters for us since it was very hot. The boat was really nice. The conditions were good and the area very scenic. We saw some Dolphins and a couple of Eagles. Overall it was a great experience. Booking the charter through FishingBooker was very easy and everything went very smooth.
