Member since October 2018 Windermere, United States
Background
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!
