Been seeing some tough reports lately so I figured I'd go see if I could use my angling edge to see what's up.  We had no problem landing this one:




fished from 5:45 till dark and we tried cb on points, cb on rip rap, cr rig around docks and points, tx rig around docks in 15-40 fow and some topwater between the dam and lakeway marina.  the fish pictured above was the only lmb caught.  We did catch a ton of perch.  I used to see people at fork who would load up on perch and sit down to clean dozens of perch as if they were having some kind of perch cleaning party.  If your one of those people, get to Travis asap!  Took it to Shades for some dinner.  Dock owners were camped out on their lighted docks at 11pm on monday night so we refrained from trying to do some fish-in a barrell fishing.

I fished travis a week ago Monday and only boated one bass reeling up my c rig, off the mainlake point on the right side, leaving sandy creek. Right by the island, that was my only fish...its been rough out there for awhile now.

Lake austin has been fishing better than travis lately.... quinlan area.

You need to hold the fish WAY out towards the camera to make that guy look good!   :D

Actually would have loved to see a picture taken that way.

Here is an exerpt from Kevin Van Dam's Bass Strategies book. In this exerpt Kevin is talking about when he helps his brother clean the aquarium in his brother's takle store.

"The three and one-half food deep aquarium contains big bass and panfish caught from area lakes. Prior to cleaning, the bass are swimming around at all different levels. The moment we remove a half-inch of water, the bass go straight to the bottom and lay flat on their bellies. As the water level drops a foot, you can touch the bass with a stick and they won't move. That is an indication as to how inactive they become. It also explains why they're so difficult to catch when the water is falling."

I wonder if this is why Travis has become so difficult. There is a lot of water running out of the lake and has been for some time.
