Yeah we had another good day on the lake and should have been fishing the T. We talked about it on wed but but then we thought we would just fish for fun. There was a lot of boats on the water but the only person that we talked to was Lerry (Swimbaits Dad) and we talked to him at the ramp before we put in.

Hear is the pics of our best 5.




Tahnks again Matt it was fun as always.

Nice sack of fish guys. But always remember everything changes when your in a tourney. I dont know if im the only one but it seems if theres no money on the line i catch fish. Its kinda like deer you always see that big one when the rifles at home. ;D Regardless yall need to start trying if your on fish. Youll never win if you not entered :p There was a lot of boats out that day and hard to find a fresh spot, a call would of been nice chris, Just kidding ;D

Hey guys, not to try to take anything away from your day, 5 keeps on Travis is always an accomplishment.  However, to echo BassCats sentiments, might want to double check your weight....

Notice this bag of fish....



That was one of the first place bags Andy and I caught in our weekly jackpots out there.  Notice that sack only went 10.8lbs, and that is weighing the bag with it, so in reality, it was probably a 9.5 - 9.75lb sack of fish

It's easy to catch a keeper on travis and say "call it 2lbs", but most keepers (lake travis specials as Andy and I call them) usually weight in at 1.6 - 1.7 pounds, or about a 9lb bag if you have 5 of them.

No offense, it's easy to start catching keeps and calling them 2lbs or better (we have done it a bunch of times)...Xtools makes a sweet scale that records the weight of each fish you catch and adds the total of best 5...

No offense taken at all Terry (As far as I go), We were just guessing on the lbs. Seeing how we were not fishing a T it really does not matter how big they were anyways. We did not check every fish but there was one right at 3lbs and another right at 2lbs so we were just guessing on the total lbs for our best 5. IMO we were just lucky to get out there and catch any fish at all.

Hey TDub how do I get in on those weekly jackpots?
Andy, myself or EA will run them on Travis, probably starting back when the time changes until fall. Last year they were on a Thursday night, probably stick with that unless there are a lot of guy wanting another night because of other T's (decker)....

Watch the tournament section for details in another 3 months or so.
