I reached out to Native Bass Fishing Charters relatively last minute for some Spring Break fishing. They connected me with Captain Dave, who gave me a quote and provided instructions for licensing and where to meet.

The day came and my son and I met Captain Dave on the ramp at the Butler chain of lakes a few minutes early. The boat was in the water and everything was ready to go and we were on the water a few minutes before our scheduled noon push time.

We motored through some canals and across Butler Lake. We got a few bites but there was some chop on the lake and the wind was strong enough that we were drifting fast and Captain Dave was having a hard time keeping the boat in the position he wanted. So we moved to a second spot on a smaller lake, and that’s where we stayed.

Captain Dave put us on the fish. We caught close to 30 bass that afternoon including some 5+ LB slabs. My 14 yo son had a great time. Bait and equipment all worked perfectly. Captain Dave is a local who knows the water and fish very well. He was friendly and helped keep my son interested in fishing, which was great. His rates seemed to be pretty much the going rate for the area. All in all it was a great afternoon, I learned some things about bass fishing I’ll take home with me, and I would come revisit Native charters again in the future.

A lot of people probably don’t know that great bass fishing is available only a few minutes from Disney and Sea World but that’s the fact!

Captain Dave was EXCELLENT!! My son and husband went on his fishing charter and had the best time. Branden is my 16 year old son who absolutely loves to fish. Captain Dave quickly figured out this trip was all about Branden, and he was so attentive to him the entire time. He caught so many fish!! It was the highlight of his Orlando vacation! Thanks Captain Dave for your hospitality and making this trip so awesome!! We recommend taking this charter with Captain Dave as he was so enjoyable, knowledgeable, friendly and we appreciated his safety on the water!

While on a family vacation in Orlando FL, I wanted to take my oldest son fishing, something he really enjoys. After a quick Google search, I came across Captain Austin from Native Bass Fishing Charters. From this point on it was the best fishing experience my son or I have had. I’ll get the logistics out of the way first because this took all but 5 min to schedule. Captain Austin provided everything and his boat was clean, comfortable and rigged for fishing. In short Captain Austin was extremely polite, friendly, informative and an all-around great guy. In my opinion this was a teaching session on how to fish for freshwater bass; from tactics, lures, live bait, etc…. In the end my son had a great experience and this was his “Disney” adventure and yes he reeled in 12 fish while Captain Austin and I reeled in 4 a piece. We highly recommend scheduling your next fresh or saltwater fishing adventure (we will), whether your just a beginner or an expert looking for a challenge, with Captain Austin from Native Bass Fishing Charters.

I randomly picked Native Bass Fishing Charters from the internet. I wanted to expose my kids to some of Orlando’s natural beauty beyond the theme parks. I could not have made a better choice for a guide. The bass fishing on the Butler Chain of Lakes was amazing. Captain Austin Keaton put me and my kids (ages 10 and 7) on the fish. Captain Austin was incredible with the kids and they got the joy of an excellent wildlife experience hauling in aggressive largemouth. He set me up with a fly rod for the front of the boat while the kids fished from the back. We made so many great memories thanks to Captain Austin. If you are looking for a guide for bass in the Orlando area or inshore saltwater action near Orlando, he is your man. You will not be disappointed.

Took a morning trip on 5/31/2022 with Captain Rick. We had a great time and put a lot of fish in the boat. My dad (75) had always dreamed of bass fishing in Florida. After researching guides in the area Native stood out as the best, so I booked them. I can not say a single negative thing about the trip We caught 30+ bass in our 4 hour trip and several in the 4 pound+ range. I will definitely book with Native in the future. Captian Rick was great and had very nice tackle and equipment. When he told me we would be throwing jerkbaits I was a little nervous because I had never had much luck with them, but that sure changed on this trip. I am now a jerkbait fan and will be using them more while fishing at home. Thanks captain Rick for a VERY MEMORABLE morning on the water with my dad. The picture attached is just a few of the fish we caught that day.

Our trip with Captain Rick Barry and Native Bass Fishing Orlando was a highlight of our vacation and a memory my boys and I will cherish for years to come. We caught a ton of fish! Things started a little slow but Rick worked hard to find them and get the bites. The challenge of the search and the hunt is part of the fun and it makes the catching so much more rewarding. We learned so much from Rick. He has a teaching spirit and also allowed us to participate beyond just reeling them in. We learned new techniques, how to read the electronics, etc. I highly recommend!

PS: The booking communication was fantastic! We first reached out to Austin but he was booked so he quickly checked with the other guides on his team and we were all set with Rick in short order.

If you're looking for a charter guide who is knowledgeable, courteous, polite and can find fish, Captain Austin Keaton is your guy. We went out with him on New Years Eve day and honestly, my only complaint is that I didn't book more than 4 hours because once we finally got the hang of the presentations, we were reeling them in like crazy! Definitely worth the money and time! I took my parents along, who were a bit leery about the whole idea at first, yet Captain Austin made everyone feel extremely comfortable on the trip. All tackle was in pristine condition, the boat in immaculate condition; he provided plenty of bait and lures and with the exception of me trying and failing to hook my bait properly, he did all the work. He was extremely patient with everyone and provided us with a TON of knowledge on the lakes themselves, boats, fish finders, and bass fishing in general. We caught probably about 3-4 bass each, along with an unexpected crappie, an unexpected catfish and an unexpected pickerel (bonus!). I seriously can't recommend Captain Austin enough if you are looking for a memorable experience. As I mentioned earlier, my parents were a little unsure they'd have a good time, and yet after we finished fishing with Captain Austin, we all agreed it was absolutely the highlight of our Orlando vacation!

Sepp, it was my absolute pleasure to take you and your parents Bass fishing in Orlando. I had so much fun with all of you and I can't wait to get you all out on the water again, and the "Blue Hornet" is waiting for your return. I'll be sending you links to all the gear we used soon. Tight lines Captain Austin Keaton

By far the best guided fishing trip my wife and I have taken. Captain Austin was on time, wasn't eager to finish (we've fished with guides before that were burnt out and ready to head in early), exhibited tons of positive energy and knew his stuff! Throughout the trip, he provided great coaching that enabled us to catch some great fish. The best testimony I can provide is that we live <5 minutes from these lakes and have lots of access to fish on our own, or with another guide....we're not going to bother doing that and have already booked with Captain Austin for next month! If you live in the Orlando area - or are planning a trip this year - a day on the water with this young man is a must!

My 11yr old son and I had this trip booked by my wife while we were on vacation in Orlando and it was an amazing experience. We caught a ton of bass! My son also caught an alligator gar which was his dream fish. I also was able to land a gar and pickerel. Austin knows the lakes like the back of his hand. He assisted both of us to ensure we caught a ton of bass with various techniques and bait. We highly recommend using Austin when your looking to “catch” not just fish... Definitely will use him on our next trip back to Orlando. You won’t be disappointed if your looking for a great day on the hidden gem of lakes in Orlando.

I called Capt Austin to see if he did afternoon trips knowing this is not a good time to fish as it was very sunny and hot. He agreed to take us, ( my adult daughter and her 11 year old son and myself ) the first five minutes of fishing we hooked our first Bass and from then on,... it was on! We caught lots of fish. I was very impressed how knowledgeable Captain Austin was on bass and their habits. Truly, a very nice guy and exceptional at getting knots out of fishing braid!
Captain Austin also pointed out famous people’s homes that surround the lakes we fished and Kept us nonstop entertained.
My grandson had Lots of questions and every time got an honest educated answer. He’s Very good with kids!
I did invite him to my turf for a few days of steelhead and salmon fishing because he is just one of those kinds of guys you enjoy being around! Great guy ! Hope he takes me up on it! Until then! See you next year Austin!
