Fished in the area around mile buoy 31, 9:30 am to 12:30 pm in cool, cloudy and misty conditions. Caught 7 LMB, 4 of which were over the legal length of 14 inches. Collectively, the 4 weighed just under 10 pounds. Not huge for the East and North Texas folks, but pretty sporty for me. I caught 2 on T-rigged Senko flipping behind deep water docks. I caught 1 on top water on shallow shoreline and the other keeper on shaky head jig rigged with 4 inch Fat Albert grub on same shoreline.

I am a refugee from our local bass forum which is pretty much defunct. I don't see much about Lake Travis on TFF, but encourage other members who fish this area to chime in.

I did not see any shad. My electronics are pretty basic--I get a general view of the bottom profile, but interference from my trolling motor obliterates any other detail. As far as visually spotting shad, there may have been some, but I wasn't consciously trying to spot them.

Good deal. I haven't been able to get out much for the fall bite. I went out about a month ago, excited to get the jerkbait bite going but it was a bit early, I guess. Caught fish at almost every spot (Sandy/Cypress Creek) but they were all wolf pack dinks busting bait balls in open water. Need to get my arse back out there.


Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading

Crowbar, I'm new to the Austin area (from Dallas) and have fished most of the lakes within an hour of here. Looking for other guys to go out and whack a few of them. I live in Jonestown and usually put in at Jonestown ramp. PM me if ya wanna go get em. I'm semi retired so I can go during the week. Sandy Creek is always a dinkfest for me. I have still yet to catch one over 5 pounds at Travis in about 15 trips. Catch tons of fish...just 12" - 15" most of the time.
