Calaveras Lake: Fishing For Blue Catfish!


Author: Christopher Meza

Haven’t been fishing much and we already know redfish have slowed down from the bank, so decide to fish for some blues at Calaveras lake. 

I typically fished from 6-12 and sometimes didn’t say past 9 due to no bites in a couple hours. On the days that produced fish, I caught the first one between 8:30 and 9.

I eventually had one good day at least for me since I ended up with my PB blue at 35inches. Caught three catfish and the smallest at 30in so overall it was a pretty decent night of fishing. For people who don’t know our lakes this is rather big for this area. 


Cut bait is the way to go but I was either throwing shad and Tilapia together or just the head of tilapia. That was landing fish through the week and had I stayed past 12,then I’m sure I would have caught more. 

Within the second week of fishing a buddy of mine had arrived early to get the spot at the horseshoe. I stopped to grab some tacos and after giving him his food and literally taking a bite his rod goes off and I grab and set the fish and as soon as I lifted I knew this was a big blue. Combo used was a 13ft breakaway rod and that rod doesn’t bend to easy but on this fish it was bent good and had some weight when I went to set hook. Passed the rod to him and as soon as we got a glimpse I knows this was one of the biggest blues I seen caught off the bank. His PB blue catfish at 40in. 


Haven’t been fishing much and we already know redfish have slowed down from the bank, so decide to fish for some blues at Calaveras lake. Ruler only went to 38in but easily passed that but we estimated to be 40in at minimum. This bait of Choice was carp which is also another good bait to use.
