  1. Excellent- I want to give that a try along with some of the shark and ray fishing we have in California
  2. Good luck on the home mades - it's a great feeling catching on your own. Seems like you don't need to use as many to get bites as well. You can also freeze the dough if you get fed up rolling- I make a load of dry mix and keep it in a bucket so you can just pull out a six egg mix and make them up as you need. I keep the measurements of the liquids stuck to the side of the bucket.
  3. Bet those things fought like hell
  4. On the massive waterways in the north west it's hit and miss and with so few anglers fishing consistently on these venues it's hard to get a perspective, I'm going to try and subscribe to a site fishing philosophy this year on the bigger venues and have set a goal of a 30+ California clear lake fish (see below) this year after hearing of bow hunters hitting fish of this size on a particular spot on this lake in the sloughs - also hearing of just scooping up 33-35lb fish in nets during spawning albeit personally only catching a 25.8 lb on a rod on this lake. I think it will need a little luck:) Max. length 19 mi (31 km) Max. width 8 mi (13 km) Surface area 68 sq mi (180 km2) Average depth 27 ft (8.2 m) Max. depth 60 ft (18 m) Water volume 1,155,000 acre·ft (1,425,000 dam3) Shore length1 100 mi (160 km) Surface elevation 1,329 ft (405 m) On the smaller venues I think a high ph, low stock density, rich food source with a little altitude thrown in is a good- other than that I think all small venues have the potential to throw up some surprises. I have seen a 33 lb catfish get caught out of 2.5 acre lake after several years of fishing and a I truley believe that any lost fish could of been the big one.
  5. I know we have fish that big in northern California in the delta and probably some of the massive lakes - it's just a case of being fortunate enough to latch onto one. New strategy this year is to get out on a boat and go looking.
  6. Possibly- I think Baitbucket is heading up there. pm the location you are thinking of.
  7. If targeting numbers on a big venue with known numbers of fish or river fishing, the method- if a more intimate venue small PVA bags- typically with a tiger nut and rubber corn critically balanced. I always prefer fishing PVA over method.
  8. I will pull the trigger on that James Lancaster Carpskunker Nor Cal
  9. I think for the most part its better to stick to natural baits- all round fav has got to be tiger nut with a bit of fake corn to make it critically balanced.
