Fun day with Austin Parr

Post By: bron      Posted: 7/16/2018 5:49:06 PM     Points: 22056    
After years of trying to win a trip with Austin in the Winter Giveaway and several tips to his tackle shop where we had a great time talking to him we booked a trip and went to Cherry Creek with him today. The trip exceeded all my expectations because I've never done well at CC but Austin dialed us in and we caught 12 walleye (3 keeper sized, 3 white crappie (new species for my son, a rainbow, and an old fishing rod as a bonus. Austin is very knowledgeable , detail oriented, and works very hard to get you on the fish. Thanks for a great day sir!

Austin is a great boat captain and guide. I had the pleasure of fishing with him last May. He was more than willing to show me all sorts of things out there. And he is a very personable host at that. We had a great time chatting between fish and lessons.

Looks like a great trip. It's nice to see that Austin could get you on some fish during the warmer weather. I've heard only good things about Austin, and this confirms that. Glad to see you and the Captain had a good time.

We went with him back in June and it was a blast! I highly recommend him, this guy knows his stuff!

Ditto the above...while I have not fished with him (yet) Austin is always friendly and more than willing to provide advice when I stop by the store. I've fished with many guides over the years and can tell he would provide a great experience.

We have agreed to make this an annual summer trip with Austin. Discussing an icefishing trip with Goosehunter at Lake John with Austin too.

I have known Austin since he started guiding at Discount and have fished with him a number of times.
He is knowledgeable and detail oriented.
He always has put us on fish.
And he won't take you somewhere if the bite is bad. Last fall we were supposed to do a trip and last minute he offered to cancel or change things up because our scheduled destination was not fishing well. Being easy going we chose the later and had a great day on some private water catching walleye, bass, and several types of trout.

Austin gets a five star review from me and my family. One of my wife's favorite guides to go out with.

Cool stuff man. The best part is that you can apply what youíve learned at other lakes.

Looking forward to a trip to lake John.
