Heading out to Travis to take my brother fishing for his birthday, a friend might also tag along. We are dropping at Tatum Cove, Any tips, I fished for LMB last time 2 weeks ago and got 3 but alot of bites(some which I would have loved to land). I am going to try to fish for LMB, Cats, and Whites. ANy tips will be taken. I will let you how the outcome is tomorrow.(Bait? , I know I will be using plastic worms for sure)

Sorry I am not familiar with the locations, but had real good luck with worms on a shaky head jig near docks.

Caught 7 LM & 2 hybrids on a white spinner throwing towards the shore and retrieving back to the boat.
(Best in the coves around rocks).
Good luck,
David

We finally left the house headed for LT dropped in at Tatum Cove around 10:45 or 11am fished up passed the flats on the right about a mile or 2 down on the right there are some nice coves. We fished until about 3. I caught 5 LMB all from Shaky Head off, 2 keepers over 14", 2 around 11-12" and one about 9 1/2". Found out that I need to get a new weigher it was left out in the boat when it rained and messed it up. My brother caught 3 LMB 1 White, and 1 Perch. His LMB were 12" and under, white was about 9". We had a great time, still trying to learn the lake. I want to try to hit up some docks next time, we mainly fished off the rocks(clifs/ledges).

To make it a little more fun before we started we had a little mini tourney just between us, bug bass/ and quantity of bass. Winner of big bass gets a free Freebird ( Best burrito in the world) and most bass gets an easy $20, I won both.

Had a great time on the water, not as crazy as last time I went, almost saw a couple of big boats tear the bottom of there boat out while they were flying thru a shallow area...

Hope everyone else had a good time. Just curious? We have only been to Tatum Cove, is there another spot we can launch that is not as Steep or at least has a courtesy dock so after parking the trailer they can get right on?

Thanks, (water was alot more murky than last time also,
