I went out with my dad this afternoon from about 4:30-8 pm to fish for catfish in Stockton. I got one catfish about 5 pounds (pics coming when I get them from my dad's cell phone) and my dad caught one tiny bluegill. It was a good day considering we only had to drive about 3 miles to get to the fishing spot.Posted ImageNotice how fat it is, I think it's pregnant, I let it go to make more baby catfish.

That's a good one! They're fun to catch especially on crankbaits. But a clam or some chicken liver is always a good bet. Have fun reeling them in. :)

I caught this one on the cooked shrimp from the grocery store. I was going to drive around town and find a store that had beef liver in stock (beef liver stays on the hook better than chicken liver) but I got distracted so I decided to just pick up a package of shrimp. It is a lot less messy to handle than any kind of liver or anchovies / shad that are the normal baits. I will probably be using shrimp again. at $3.00 a pound its really not much more expensive than liver.

Nightcrawlers work well too.
