Re: Who from ABF is fishing CLUB-100/KLBJ Bass Tournament?

Me and my partner will be there. I'am still not understanding if we have to check in before launch. 200 boats leaving the park is going to be a mess. I went back to the park this weekend and there's a narrow channel that run's next to the marina and outside that channel its only 1.5-2ft deep. Also the bank at the park does not look to boat friendly.

That was my big concern also, I was out there last week and 200 trucks/trailers will be a mess. Im not sure there is enough room for that many. Im sure some will put in at other ramps, but even getting to the weigh in is going to be crazy.

There have been some BIG five bass stringers coming out of Lake Travis! I have not fished it for LMB in over a month! Crappie last Friday...Should be interesting to say the least!

PAST LAKE TRAVIS TOURNAMENTS:
on October 5th, 2008, ATX bass tournament had about 42 teams. On Travis it took over 23 pounds to win! Over 15 pounds to get a check (we went ahead and paid 5 places)! Big bass was about 7.5 pounds (All released at Tournament Point-Pace Bend Park)

and

on October 19th, 2008, RCBC Open Tournament had 95 teams and paid out 10 places.   First was a 18.77lb sack. Paid to 10th place at 12.98lbs and big bass was 6.47lbs. (All released at Tournament Point-Pace Bend Park)


Sunrise on Saturday, October 25th is 7:41am...So it will be dark at 6:30am when you start fishing. Make sure all your lights work!

NOAA WEATHER FORECAST (DO YOU BELIEVE THESE GUYS- :D)
Friday: Sunny, with a high near 79. Calm wind becoming southwest around 5 mph.

Friday Night: Mostly clear, with a low around 48. South southeast wind around 5 mph becoming calm.

Saturday: Sunny, with a high near 84. West wind around 5 mph becoming south southeast.

I would think with Lake Travis being so low, it would be like fishing a draw-down, upstream... Might take a run up there on Wednesday to see what kind of conditions. I will be taking some gas with me too. ;D

I know the water conditions mid-lake are off color up to past Gloster Bend Park, when I made the run this last Friday...I guess that is caused by low water?? or ??

Myself and Victor of Sun Signs will be fishing, should be fun. Not on any fish to speak of, but you never know on Travis.

All I can say is I was out there this weekend with my son and father in law, and everyone on Travis should be careful and really hug the channel! :-/

Yea, I am not happy at all about the late season event due to the lowness of the lake. I have no idea how the hell 200 boats PLUS the normal traffic and the other boats for the event are going to fit on that lake OR at the launches.

I mean.. we are debating just the 200 that WE will be taking.. what about regular Travis people that either have no idea we are going to be out there OR don't care?

It is one huge mess.

Another ABFer asked me offline about registration..Since I do not work for Club 100 or KLBJ, this is my understanding....


The t-shirts will be part of the registration package that you can pick up when you register at our office either this Thursday (8A-5P) or Friday (8A-4P). Our physical address is 3409 Executive Center Drive, Suite 128, Austin. Please call for directions, if necessary. There is no need to register at the tournament if you pick up your package on Thursday or Friday."

Based on the statement above, from tournament officials, as long as you pick up you registration package at the above location, on Thursday or Friday, then you can launch anywhere you want and then go to your spot and wait till 6:30am to start fishing....I pre-register by e-mail, so I still need to go by one of the two days to register. This way, I can launch at any ramp and then wait till 6:30am to start fishing in the mid-40 degree, dark morning!

That is hilarious. Lake Travis can handle a lot more than 200 boats. Don't sweat it. The recreational traffic this time of year is negligible. Bass champs has had tournaments with close to 250, as has River City. Sometimes I think the lake fishes better at the current levels than it does when it is full. The biggest key is to not let the mental game get to you. Enjoy the tournament and have fun. Wish I was fishing :)

Relax Russ, we launched at Mansfield last saturday for the RCBC open (100 boats) and there might have been 6 trucks in the parking lot when we left and maybe 1/3 of the parking lot full when we pulled out.

So double that number of boats and you are still fine. The recreational traffic has been medium light, but I bet with the cooler temps of this weekend it will be down to almost nothing.

Go have fun and enjoy sticking fish!
