You would probably want something with as little boat traffic as possible on the weekend. I would count out Travis/Austin.
Some options you might consider would be Georgetown or some of the Lakes higher up the river (Inks, LBJ, Buchanan). Granger is out there too. These lakes would be a longer drive for people though, but I bet you could get a pretty solid turn out. I can only fish on weekends with a day here and there during the week.
I was actually thinking about Granger. Haven't fished there since last Aug or Sept. There are some good fish in there. Hearing of people catching some up to 9 lbs. Not sure what time the gates close there. Was looking at maybe a 7pm - 11pm or 12am timeframe. $30 person $5-10 BB??
Travis is fine,and mansfield isnt that bad in the night time.every other saturday night,would be great!40 bucks per person and a 20.00 big fish option.I really cant beleive no one is doing these tourneys yet.lets get this party started quickly...6-midnight....Im in!
Wouldn't it be great to get some nighttime tournys started here in Austin. Check in at 10:00pm and weigh in at 4am. You can then have these tournys on Friday/Saturday nights. I think it's an awesome idea.
As low as Travis has been, I believe Lake Austin would be a better location. Even though I have never fished Austin and have only fished Travis once. Reading about the fishing and seeing the pictures I like Austin better. Which ramp is the best for Austin to hold the weighin?
City Park is right in the middle of 360 and Quinlan (those are the other 2 places to put in). The problem is, City Park closes at 10 pm. Quinlan is north and free and they have a small picnic table setup there. I'm not sure about 360.
Let me know if this happens, I could fish in a couple of them for sure.
A saturday night tourney would ROCK.
The reason I've never attended any of the week night tourneysis because
I work until 6 M-F. I don't like leaving early because things just don't get done.
If someone put it on I'll attend for sure.
