Long time since I have seen you on the Bluegill Forum Ash. Glad you are back. Awesome video. Never knew Travis was a good bluegill lake. Also wondered about the boat since you used to fish from a kayak?

It's good to be back! I sold my yak a few years ago and started going back to college. I'm chasing after my Master's. As bad as I tried, I just couldn't do both at the time. But now, life has calmed down a bit, and I've always wanted a boat. So I'm back at it and having the time of my life!

You would think there would be lots of trophy size fish of every species in Travis because except for the occasional bass tourney, Travis doesn't appear to be fished very much.

Thanks for the reply Ash, am happy to see you doing well. Those look like giant bluegills. Congratulations on the catch. What kind of boat is that? I like the looks of that deck.

TY for sharing the video. Bent fishing rods and beautiful fish! Are the fish with the long, dark stripes extending from the ear region actually 'long ear'?

Hi there smile
Those fish are redbreasts. It can be confusing since their ears are long.

Side Note: I heard that Travis is now full? That lake a year ago was in pretty bad shape!

Outstanding video, Ash! Sounds like you have it figured out... further your education, but never lose sight of what's truly important... Tight lines and screaming drag!
