What you'll do

After boarding our Tritoon charter vessel, we will spend the first part of our tour getting acquainted (or reacquainted) with the basics of angling (safety, gear, tackle and supplies, bait and lures, and casting). Then, we will explore as many fishing areas as possible for the duration of our time together. Lake Travis has a maximum depth of 190 feet and a total surface area of 18,622 acres! I practice catch and release. I want people to learn about the beauty of our Austin lakes and to learn (or re-learn) the basics of fishing. We will experience the tranquility of seeking out fish and (hopefully) the exhilaration of reeling in a fish (we will take pictures!). I am an educator and intend for this tour to provide a fun and informative tour for all ages with fishing skills and enjoyment that will last a lifetime. I am not able to guarantee you that we will catch fish but we will catch a great time on a gorgeous lake in an incredible city! I also host an Airbnb rental and use Airbnb when I travel. We also run a small family owned firm providing customized leisure experiences. Our family has met countless new friends from around the world. I look forward to meeting you.

Robert

I love being out on the water. It is my sanctuary. It brings me peace. When I take a vacation I seek out fishing charters. I can tell you that there are no fish in the Atlantic or the Pacific Oceans (at least they all were hiding from me). I want everyone to experience the beauty that Austin lakes have to offer. I have lived in Austin since 1990. I am a Certified Angler Education Instructor and volunteer teaching fishing to youth and adults. This tour is an opportunity for me to share my love for fishing (and for Austin) with you. I speak Spanish (conversational) and Vietnamese (limited).

What's included

Equipment
Rod, tackle, bait, PFD.

Where you'll be

The meeting location, Mansfield Dam Park is the deepest, most accessible boat ramp on Lake Travis. Make sure to marvel at the adjacent tallest dam in Texas, Mansfield Dam. It was completed in 1942 and provides hydroelectric power and is designed to hold back flood waters.
