Love catching big Bass but never had the chance to fish in an official tournament? Get some buddies together for this unique, competitive tournament-style Bassfishing trip on the lakes around Austin, Texas! On this trip, your group will split up according to how many people you bring, typically going 2-3 per boat, and competing to see who can catch the better fish! The terms of this tournament will be up to you, and you can compete based on size, number of fish, top five catches, or more! Feel free to bring drinks and snacks, and make sure you've got some good trash-talk ready to go. Derek can take up to 2 guests on this tournament adventure. You will be fishing aboard his 18' bass boat, which is suited to all your needs on Lake Travis. The vessel is powered by a 115 Yamaha engine that will power you across the smooth surface of the lake with speed. Derek can provide all the fishing gear for you: rods, reels, artificial lures, and light tackle for you, but encourages you to bring your own if you'd like as well. Otherwise feel free to bring your favorite snacks, drinks, and don't forget your Texas fishing license. Get ready to whack some bass! Read More

    My son and I recently went on a guided trip with Derek and we could not be happier! Originally we were scheduled for Lake Austin, but Derek had gotten some news that we should hit Lake Travis instead, and it definitely paid off! His knowledge of the lake and guidance with us novice fishermen (and just a good guy all around) led to some fun results!

    Derek did a great job. Even though the weather was a little cold and the fish weren’t too hungry, we hit multiple different spots and everyone on the trip landed something! We also nearly landed a 25 pound mega catfish that would’ve been a personal best! All in all, awesome day, awesome guide.
