texas bass fishing guides

Adventurer: Logan Crable Guide: Ander Meine of Bassquatch Fishing Location: Austin, TX Target Species: Largemouth Bass Trip Link: https://captainexperiences.com/trip/120 Review Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

"Ander was awesome! He sent us a super detailed itinerary before the trip and tailored the trip to our needs. The bite was not "on fire" first thing in the morning but Ander earned his guiding stripes by putting us on them later in the morning. Always a fun feeling when you're the only boat on the lake catching something ;) . He's a true professional that knows the Austin waterways like the back of his hand. Rest assured - Ander WILL put you on some fish. Great conversation, eager to help, educational, comfortable - all around a great trip!" -Logan
