I got a good laugh out of the article. It said Travis has become a top destination for Texas bass anglers. Have I missed the memo on this or what?

Sure hope it kicks out some better bags than FLW. The 10th place finisher in that tournament averaged less than 10 pounds a day for 4 days.

That made me laugh as well. I didn't realize everyone was flocking to Travis from across the state.

I don’t know how you can pick Travis when LBJ is right there next to it.

I am personally excited about this tournament due to its proximity to San Antonio/Austin. Sure there might be "better" bodies of water to fish but maybe this one gives the event more space to layout its expo. It's all about promoting the sport in my eyes and this is a great area to do that in. As for the fisherman, they are going to bring there A game no matter what lake it's going to be. It's about finding the best 5 fish per day on THAT lake. Who cares if someone thinks there is a better lake for quantity or quality down the road. I want to see these anglers do work!

Seeing as this tournament evolved from the Toyota Texas Bass Classic, having it near Austin and TPWD's headquarters makes sense to me.

Haha yeah, really. In their list of 100 Best Bass Lakes several months ago, when they were talking about Falcon, they also said that it was full; not real sure they do a whole lot of proofreading at Bassmaster.

Actually, Travis has been fishing well this past year for the most part. Me, I'm excited to see a new lake other than an East Texas lake.

Years ago I worked at a marina on Travis all summer. In the morning we would pull boats out of a dry stack and put them in the water and in the evenings the reverse. But during the day it was pretty quiet with a lot of work on the docks maintaining, cleaning slips, etc. There are some sizable largemouth in Travis that are never pressured feeding on bluegill and crappie. Water is sometimes really clear and you could crawl up to the edge of a slip and watch them swimming around.
