Travis Manson

I was born and raised in Northeastern Wisconsin. I have been actively involved in fishing all of my life; from walleye tournament fishing in Wisconsin and trout and salmon fishing on the Great Lakes, to bass tournament fishing throughout the country. During 1996-2006 I primarily fished walleye tournaments. In 2006 I was introduced to the Bassmaster Elite Series as a Co-Angler, through Mercury Marine, at which time I ultimately decided to switch from walleye to bass fishing. My future tournament plans for 2010 are to continue fishing local bass tournaments in Wisconsin, along with competing in the Bassmaster Opens Northern Tour and a few FLW American Fishing Series events. When I have a tournament and the specific technique calls for either a tube or a grub I am going to be using the Get Bit Baits tube baits or the Get Bit Baits Hypertail Grubs. The tube baits have the best colors and sizes that are just right for any condition I come across. The Hypertail Grub used as a trailer or fished solo is the best grub I have ever used before. If you want to put more fish in the boat you need to get your hands on some of these grubs! If you have any questions or want to learn more about different techniques to apply these lures feel free to contact me at or email me at

I am currently working towards my degree in Fisheries and Wildlife Management at Vermilion Community College in Ely, Minnesota. I am originally from Eau Claire, Wisconsin, where I consider my home waters to be the Chippewa River system consisting of the Old Abe Lake, Chippewa Flowage, and Lake Wissota. I have been fishing competitively in bass tournaments since I was 15 years old. It was when I was 16 that I joined the Wisconsin Bass Federation Nation (WBFN). Since 2004 I have been qualifying for WBFN State tournament every year and fishing multiple Midwest circuits including Bassmaster Weekend Series, Gander Mountain Series, Wisconsin Team Circuit along with numerous of local open tournaments. In recent years I have set a goal to qualify into the Bassmasters Elite series of the WBFN State tournament, in these I have had several chances of making the top 11, but have come up just short. Besides being on the open water and fishing leisurely or competitively in tournaments, I do also host a fishing guide service. In the winter you will almost certainly find me ice fishing. In general I love being outdoors with hunting being another passion of mine. When I am not fishing you will find me building custom fishing rods in my spare time. My ultimate goal is to one day become a professional bass fisherman. If you or someone you know is looking for a custom rod or a trustworthy adventurous fishing guide contact me at:
