Travis Fishing Guide Ander Meine
It’s hard to pin Lake Pro Guide Ander Meine down long enough to ask him about his guide credentials. See, in addition to reporting for Lake Pro Guides, Ander is also the owner of “Bassquatch Fishing,” a guide service providing guided trips to 11 different lakes in the Austin area. He has 30+ years of fishing experience and 18+ years of competitive tournament fishing experience.
Ander has lived in several different states throughout the west which has given him the opportunity to fish and understand a wide array of bodies of water; from the tidal waters of the California Delta to the ultra deep, clear waters of Lake Mead in Nevada. With such a diverse background, we think that Ander’s versatility in his angling styles is likely his greatest asset and why we’re proud to call him a Lake Pro Guide.
He also has years of experience with fishing for all three of the primary black bass species: Largemouth, Smallmouth, and Spotted Bass. Ander has been fishing Texas waters for over 10 years now and feels right at home finding and catching monster Texas bass.
Fishing Lake Travis
Like LBJ, Lake Travis is another reservoir on the Colorado River and was formed by the construction of Mansfield Dam on the western edge of Austin, Texas in 1942. Travis, which is part of the Highland Lakes, was primarily built as a flood-control reservoir which explains why the water fluctuation of Lake Travis is quite high; it once fluctuated 20 feet in a single 24 hour period. The clarity runs from clear to slightly off-color in upper sections and there isn’t much in the way of vegetation.
