Tyler Torwick

Member since April 2018 Austin, United States
Background
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!
Techniques
I like to consider myself a very well rounded angler and not stick to just one style of fishing. With that said, some of my strengths are finesse fishing, offshore fishing, and locating fish with my electronics. I am very good at breaking down a lake, locating high percentage areas that hold fish, and figuring out how to catch them. Lake Travis is my home lake which fishes more like a river system than a lake. It is very deep, rocky and had very clear water, lending itself well to my style of fishing. I am also particularly good on Lake LBJ, which is full of grass and docks... another way I love to fish! I typically only fish with artificial lures, however at your request or when clients bring their children I will bring along some live bait. I especially love to educate people about fishing. So if you are looking to learn something while on the water so you can be more successful on your own, I am the guide for you!
