About Your Guide

Carson's unique when it comes to Central Texas fishing guides. His bass fishing trips are geared towards exploring rarely-visited stretches of the Lower Colorado in his jet boat. Cruising with Carson, gliding over shallow water sections of the Colorado, is truly something you'll have to experience to believe.

You'll also have to fish with Carson to believe how many massive Central Texas Bass he pulls in. A native of Austin, TX, Carson's been fishing these waters for as long as he can remember. He loves sharing his experience with expert and beginner anglers alike, and you'll be the better for it!

Carson provides all top of the line rods, tackle, food, drinks, and of course the fishing spots. Get out there with Carson to explore new waters and catch big-time Texas Bass along the way!

We had a great day on the beautiful river with Carson. He provide great service and was both helpful and patient with my daughter, who had limited fishing experience. I plan to book another trip.
