Lake Travis Pre-fishing Day 2

15 November 2009

I got in my second day of pre-fishing yesterday.  I went with a friend, DJ Morrison.  I have to say, it was a little bit of a frustrating day, but it was productive enough.  Yesterday the goal was to try and find a back up plan if my pattern I found my first day of pre-fishing didn’t hold up next week.  I was actually really hoping to find an area with some murkier water to be able to fall back on if I needed to in the tournament, but I had no such luck.  There were a few areas of the lake that I had recalled seeing murkier water earlier in the year, but that just wasn’t the case yesterday.  I ended up catching a lot of fish, but none of them were keepers…so I really didn’t find anything that would help me out as a back-up plan.  However, that does make me feel somewhat good knowing that I found one of the few successful patterns going on out there right now.  I suspect that a lot of guys will struggle in this tournament.  We’ll see what happens though I guess.  The best part of the day though was that I brought home some Guadalupe Bass and one big bonus Striped Bass that I caught (about a 24 incher).  On the way home I got the bright idea to put them in the bath tub and let May-May jump in and chase them around.  It was pretty hilarious.  I took a video that I will try to post later, but my computer seems to be having problems recognizing my phone when I plug it in.

The other thing was that it was a frustrating day because of my trolling motor.  It’s been having problems for several months now, but it’s just getting worse and worse and I just can’t deal with it anymore.  It has now decided to only start running at like half its normal speed and power.  The wind barely picked up yesterday and I got blown all over.  If I don’t get it fixed before the tournament, and that wind picks up at all, I could be screwed.  Hopefully I can figure something out before this weekend.
