Today was a great trip on Lake Travis! A client of mine recently purchased a brand new Legend V20... talk about a sweet boat! He had it rigged with dual Humminbird Helix 12's and wanted to learn how to use them more effectively. Too change things up we took his boat and I ran it for him. The focus of the trip was to learn some new spots on Travis, understand how to approach them, and to learn to fish offshore.
One of my specialities is fishing deep offshore and I love being able to teach others how to be better at it. We caught quite a few fish, but the highlight of the trip was when I pulled up to a deep secondary point near a creek channel... textbook pattern! His MEGA imaging showed the school sitting on the edge of the point clear as day. I showed my client how I like to position the boat, what baits I typically chose, and how to work them. I started off with a Carolina Rig, and on the first cast before I could finish showing him how I work the bait... BAM fish on!
We proceeded to catch several off this spot on c rigs, 6XD's and a dropshot.
It was a very productive and educational trip. If you have a new fish finder and want to dial it in and learn how to locate and catch fish, give me a call! I am booked up until Sunday, but next week I have some availability.
