We picked a great day to be on the ocean today with Capt Austin. We were able to catch several fish and the kids enjoyed their time on the water. Austin was very professional and knew some great spots to keep them busy. His equipment was great and we enjoyed ...Read More his knowledge of the area.

Excellent display of knowledge and professionalism from Captain Austin that far surpassed my expectations. We went from catching them on a fly rod, to catching them on a spinning rod, to hanging out and just talking as we trolled. Couldn’t keep the fish off the line no matter what we ...Read More did. I would highly recommend Capt. Austin to anyone who is looking to learn new techniques and catch fish with a deeply passionate and experienced angler. 10/10!

Captain Austin had scouted out a location in advance, and right off the bat we had sharks coming in. We ended up hooking into some 12 foot sharks, which was amazing! They were swimming right up to the boat, and the water was clear enough ...Read More we could see them easily. We did land some 5 foot ones, and at one point we had 3 of the 4 lines all fighting good size sharks. We also caught a huge stingray which seemed to take forever to get to the boat, but it was so much fun. I would highly recommend him anytime!
