Torwick's Guiding Service

(16)
In demand!

Tyler is one of the top guides on Lake Travis in Austin, Texas. Logging over 250 days a year on the water he has the skills and knowledge to put you on fish! A former president of the Baylor University collegiate fishing team and veteran tournament angler, Tyler is an experienced guide. He owns and operates Torwick’s Guide Service and offers his clients exciting fishing trips for Largemouth Bass on Lake Travis, Lake Decker, and Lake LBJ.

With numerous tournament podium finishes with the FLW college tour, Texas Tournament Zone, Media Bass, and several other trails, Tyler has the skills to teach you to fish like the pros. He also offers “coaching trips” customized to more veteran anglers looking to focus on education more so than just catching a bunch of fish.

Tyler’s specialty is teaching anglers how to understand patterns rather than fishing “spots”, how to utilize your electronics to their full potential, and how to get better at offshore fishing. 

You will be exploring the deep and rocky Lake Travis and its clear waters with artificial lures. Your vessel for the day will be a 21’ Skeeter Bass boat. The boat can cruise at a hair-raising 65 knots thanks to her 250 HP Yamaha SHO engine. There is plenty of space for up to 3 anglers.

The boat is rigged with an Ultrex 112 trolling motor, as well as with other navigational and fishfinding electronics to build up a clear picture of where the fish are hiding.

All trips come with the use of gear and tackle by Shimano and Dobyns, as well as lures. The only things you need to bring are a valid Texas fishing license and snack/drinks if you like, bottled water is provided.

My name is Tyler Torwick, I have been fishing all my life and it is a true passion of mine. I grew up begging my parents for rides to the local lake back home in San Diego, CA, and it's been an addiction ever since. I moved to Texas to attend Baylor University where I really got into competitive Bass fishing. I was the president of the Baylor University Bass fishing team and competed in numerous collegiate tournament including qualifying for the FLW college series national championship. After graduating, I moved to Austin and have spent my time learning the local lakes and gaining the skill needed to guide on them. In addition to guiding I also fish several large tournament trails throughout central Texas. I have numerous wins and podium finishes on the lakes that I guide on! If you are looking to refine your skills as an angler, or just flat out catch fish, I can help!
