Lake Travis


FLW Tour stop number 2 recently wrapped up on my home lake. Travis. There is always a little extra pressure that goes along with fishing your home lake, so I was anxious to get it started and get the jitters out. Travis is definitely on the upswing. There are bushes and cover everywhere, and the fish look fat and healthy. After the first day I was in 26th place with 12-7 - just could not get a big bite. But just getting that first day out of the way went a long way to relieve the home lake pressure. On day two I got that big bite I needed to catapult me closer to the top of the leaderboard. It was an 8-6 giant. I weighed in nearly 18 pounds that day and finished the day in 4th place. On day 3, I started out well catching 2 nice ones and ended up weighing in 12-4 – good enough for 3rd place. I needed a good bag the last day to win but only managed 11 pounds. I finished 5th, but it was still a great tournament and I really had a great week. Travis is definitely a fishing destination in Texas right now.
