We will have another 1,500 pounds of catfish delivered this Friday, August 3! The waters should be reinvigorated and an awesome Friday and Saturday of nightfishing should be in store! The last two weekends have been awesome for some anglers and not so awesome for others--but that's fishing I guess. The key is finding the right spot and using the right bait and for tips on that read the Catfish Report below.
Some trout are still being caught on mackerel, so just throw in a line and hold on tight! Between Big Bass, Monster Cats, and Tailwalking Trout you never know what will bite in the night!
Trends: The panfish are biting on the Fishing Float on meal worms and there are some monsters swimming around down there! It seems that from the North Shore to Half Moon Bay are the productive shoreline spots for catfish this week. Although mackerel is the most consistent, shrimp is really producing a lot of limits. Try dipping some shrimp in stinkbait and see what bites!
North Shore: Catfish and Bass have been caught here this week. The best place for the cats is by the concrete pillar.
Half Moon Bay: Starting to become a catfish and bass favorite. Reports of limits of catfish caught all throughout Half Moon during night fishing.
Fish Float: Great for catfish especially in early morning, late afternoon, and night fishing. The bluegill and sunfish are also biting on meal worms for young anglers.
Jump Off Point: Productive for catfish but the best time is after sunset on Friday and Saturday night.
Boulder Bay: Catfish are biting quite well in the afternoon and evening.
Hidden Bay: Catfish are biting really well here, especially at the opening of the Bay. Bass and pan fish are also stacked up and ready to bite!
Bucktail Bay: Some Catfish and Bass caught this week. The bass were close to shore and soft plastics were the bait of choice.
Tip 1: Panfish really love meal worms and the best places are in Hidden Bay and on the Fishing Float.
Tip 2: For catfish use frozen mackerel, chicken liver or shrimp on the bottom in deep water. From the shore target places like the end of the Fishing Float, Boulder Bay, the middle of Hidden Bay, Pine Point, Bucktail Bay, and by the concrete pillar on the North Shore.
