Holy Guacamole!! This week there were three gigantic fish caught, starting with Ken Borello’s 20 lb. 4 oz. CATFISH!! He caught it on anchovies at night and brought it in for his photo when our store opened up. His netter was his good buddy Vern Harms, both of them are from Grass Valley. Our lake record on Catfish is 24 pounds!
On the 6th of May Mike Hage from Sonoma hooked his 9 lb. 8 oz. trout on a worm while he was trolling only 10′ down over the channel. Then came Thomas Brown who was also trolling down 10′ in Elmer’s Cove and he caught a trout as well that weighed 7 lb. 12 oz.
Patrick Farley from Discovery Bay was in a boat but drifting PowerBait and he and his fishing partner caught 9 trout total. Seth & Ryan from Concord found two nice Bass on the eastside, they used a smoky shad river worm. Steve Dalton caught three trout, his big one was 3 lb. 12 oz. and he fished from shore in the Open Area on PowerBait.
Congrats to Aislinn Gamble who caught her 1st fish ever (actually 2 trout) on a crawdad lure from the beach. 1st fish honors also go out to Victoria Lacalle who landed a beautifull Bluegill.
Victoria Fong caught her two rainbow trout in front of her campsite using PowerBait. Linda Larue said she threw everything at them, and didn’t stop until she caught her limit of trout. Her two biggest were 3 lbs. and 2 lbs.
