Bassmaster Elite Update: The Lucky Bite

Jonestown, TX (May 25, 2018)  The Q Crew Water Team finished up on Lake Travis at the annual Texas Fest which benefits the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department this past weekend.  The Q Crew had two anglers, Jacob Powroznik and Mark Daniels Jr. make the Top 50 cut to fish Saturday, but did neither angler cracked into the Top 12 to fish Championship Sunday.  The tournament started out with high hopes as Jacob Powroznik sat in the 5th spot after Day 1 and was still in contention for the Top 12 after Day 2 sitting in 10th position.  The bite changed considerably on Saturday and both anglers had small bags to not move them into the Top 12 cut.  The anglers gave summarized their experiences on Lake Travis:

“The tournament of the lucky Bite.  Lake Travis is the lake that you want to take your kids to everyday during summer vacation.  You can easily catch 50-100, 12 inch bass a day.  The issue is getting the keepers to bite as well as a kicker or two.  The Elite guys definitely proved that the bigger fish were there to be had but for me I just couldn’t get that bite.  After practice I wasn’t even sure I could get 5 – 14 inch bass to the boat but that turned into not being a problem.  All in all, I executed well and was just never presented an opportunity at a big one.  Never know what could have happened if I would have gotten the big bites but that’s fishing!”

“Lake Travis was a very fun event in Austin, TX for Texas Fest.  This lake reminded me a lot of lakes I grew up on in Northern California.  Water clarity up to 12 feet deep and tons of fish.  The event started off kind of rocky as I completed the first day of competition in 64th place where I had several opportunities to catch a big one but missed.  Second day I was able to catch two quality fish that allowed me to sneak into the 50 cut in 41st place.  On the last day I caught them on top water which is always fun.  Three of those fish happened to be quality and I ended the event in 23rd place.”

~Mark Daniels Jr.

“Lake Travis was a fun tournament.  I caught a ton of fish everyday.  I ended up catching them from 2′ to 50′ of water on a variety of different set ups.  Finished the tournament in 54th place and missed the Day 3 ounces.  Got some valuable AOY points towards making the Classic in 2019.  We have the Sabine River next and I’m looking forward to the grind there!”

“Lake Travis was a wonderful lake.  I caught a ton of fish on; V&M chopstick, pork pen drop shop and a  Livingston walkin boss 2 first thing in the morning.  Love to go back when the fish are spawning b/c the water is really clear.  First day I caught two quality fish, but never had that opportunity the second or third day.  I can tell you one thing, there was a lot of Quicksilver oil being used, it was a mad house as a lot of people were out using their boats.  I am happy with the 25th place finish and thought I could have made the Top 12 cut if I had one or two good bites on Day 2 and 3.  Looking forward to Memorial Day Weekend with the family and then returning to the Sabine River for our next event.”
