About Captain Austin
Capt Austin Schroeder has made a living as a professional fishing guide and seasoned tournament angler his entire adult life. Growing up in central Florida bass fishing with his father was a natural past time and as he grew up he competed in and won many tournaments from the Harris Chain to Lake Okeechobee which is how he got started in guiding bass trips 10 years ago. His passion for fishing was not just limited to Freshwater, he took every opportunity to get out on the saltwater and has proven to be a very talented inshore and offshore guide over the past 6 years. His skill set ranges from inshore fishing for trout and redfish to offshore fishing for grouper and snapper but Austin definitely prefers the nearshore and offshore fishing whether that means targeting Mangrove Snapper and Sheephead in the winter or Gag grouper, Red grouper and Red Snapper further offshore. He will always do his best to accomplish the mission at hand whether that means filling the box for a fish fry or catching and releasing gags on artificial he’s got you covered.
Austin runs a 27’ Orion center console powered by twin 200hp Suzuki outboards and this boat allows him to fish for shallow water grouper in as little as 8ft of water or run 55 miles offshore targeting red snapper in the summer time. It is comfortable for up to 5 people and provides a smooth ride when heading offshore.
