Couldn't resist, was such a nice day I had to go fish. Took a couple friends out to LT to Pace Bend. Had a great day, Got a little red from the sun. And was actually kinda hot at times. I boated a dozen, and lost a few at the boat, and as well as my friends. Caught one on a Crank. And the rest where on Shakyhead. Cow Creek was dead compared to main lake.

Fished another cove and it was on all day. Sat in about 20 to 30 FOW, and beat the bank. at my spots, and they where right on the bank or about 10 ft off the bank.

The water temp was 60.8 degrees and I found water that was 62.1degrees, and seemed to be able to catch more fish in those areas. But the fish where pretty active.

Even though it was windy at times, it was a lot of fun. A lot of White activity going on out that way also. I was tempted to fish for em.


And what temp should these fish start spawning on Travis? I know it's super close. Anyone know for sure?

David-

Where did you see the white bass activity?  Was it near the mouth of Cow Creek?  I saw some fish by balls of bait there 2 weeks ago in ~40 fow but could not coax a nibble on the 1 oz realimage for some reason (?operator error? :-?).

Thanks for your info/post.

All you gotta do is look around for the whites, they are all over the place. I GPS'd a spot with a ton of em, and it was across from Pace Bend towards Cow Creek in about 40ft.

Went in Cow Creek, and was disappointed to see the whites weren't there, or across from Cow Creek on the Sandy Bottom.

Best recommendation I can offer is to just cruise around till you find em, since they are always moving. I fished the upper and lower parts of Travis last week, and they where everywhere at times.

Jim, I used a Spit'n Image jig'n spoon myself, and didn't connect with em, but I didn't really give it a shot. I was looking for some fat pre spawn largemouth.

Travis will turn on next week...Ive been keeping records of it for the past 10+ years...2nd week in March like clockwork, unless there's a high pressure system moving thru...south facing water is warmer and will turn on first, sharpen yer hooks and get ready for the bite.
