Join Captain Carson Conklin on an unforgettable adventure through the waters of Austin’s Hill Country!
Captain Carson knows how to get you those adrenaline-pumping tugs, so listen closely to his trips and tricks. His 18’ Bass Boat has the perfect combination of speed and stealth and is especially great when fishing for these easily spooked creatures.
On this 4-hour (half-day) or 8-hour (full day) adventure, you’ll be targeting Largemouth Bass and Smallmouth Bass. This trip can accommodate 3 people.
Make sure you bring a Texas Freshwater Fishing License. Captain Carson will provide all rods, reels, and tackle on this all-inclusive adventure! He will also provide bottled waters, but feel free to bring your own food and drinks.

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!
Just booked our 2nd trip with Carson! Looking forward to another great outing. He's a true professional - - providing guidance to beginners, seasoned anglers and everyone in between. You will have fun, catch fish and meet a wonderful gentleman who knows Texas fishing.
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.
Took my grandson fishing and had a great time. Carson took a lot care to work with him and teach him.
