Fished the River City tournament today. Started out tough with getting a late start and the having battery problem at the ramp. Starting about 30 min late we got to our cove and started throwin top waters and missed a couple good fish. Switched to plastics and caugt 10-12 fish but only two keepers at about 3lbs each. Then it got slow and ended running up to a creek. Fished some rocks on the way in and caught some dinks so we moved to the back of the creek and the bite picked up. 3-5ft of water with alot of stick ups. Fishing plastics slow and picked up another 3lb and two keeps about 1.5 ea. Lost another 3/3.5 right at the end that would have put us in the money. Finished with a little over 12lbs and got 14-15 place. Pretty good for 100+boats. Travis is fishin pretty good right now, took 16+ to win.

I wanted to fish the tournament but couldn't do it this weekend. Next weekend I will be out fishin. Travis is getting better every year on the size and health of the fish. I lived on Travis since 2003 and I've seen the stringers getting heavier over the years.

I work with a couple of fisheries biologists and one suggests the influx of more runoff from gold courses and lawns from all the development has enriched the water with nutrients; therefore adding to the health and population of plankton and then baitfish..subsequently gamefish. Makes sense but it's just one opinion.

I'm ready for next spring and fishing some tournaments. No more deployments as I'm getting out of the reserves and getting serious about fishing. Two tours is enough...

Thanks for the update on the T and congrats on you catch. 12lbs is a good catch for Travis. The last T I fished on Travis back in 2004, we won with 14 lbs in Jan... now it takes 20 lbs. that's good... I've caught a 7.1 and 6.4 this fall already. Travis is getting better every year.
