    Default Laguna Lake Catfish

    Catfish are still biting after the kids derby. Caught and released about 7 in about an hour and a half of fishing. Pike Mackeral and Shrimp. Flylined.

    I was just there a couple hours ago, Tuesday night. Right around 7:00 pm is when the bite turned on and it was still on when I left around 8:15. There was some kids that were saying the bite was really good on Monday night after the sun went down.

    That's ok on directions. FYI the Dam is the West end. The Reeds are on the North Shore, across the lake from the Reeds is the South shore. The opposite end of the lake, where the Dam is "not" there is the East end. If anyone was curious!!! lol

    Standing on the north bank I see a rise out of the corner of my eye and a decent sized head of a fish. I was dragging a worm through that section of water a few seconds later. I get bit. I give it a second and reel up the slack to take a swing at her. i feel the weight of the fish and then about 3/4 of the way into my swing, POP! I lost the fish.

    I look at my line setup to see what gave way. Everything was gone. It was my 10 lb. power pro braid that popped. A clean break. I guess I'll have to check my braid for wear and tear. It's only been one season, in freshwater only. I have to admit, the braid was faded and lost a lot of that deep green color, but I didn't think it was going to break off.

    Live and learn.

    Do catfish eat off the surface? It looked like a 5-6 inch wide head. Is this possible from Laguna?

    You guys don't know what Laguna Lake catfish are, catching little stocked fish. Back when I was a teenager we would catch 10 pounders all the time. Some went close to 20 pounds! We just spent the night there fishing with a big ball of Velvetta cheese or chicken livers. Had lots of adventures there at that place!

    So did I see a huge catfish head? or, did I just wish I did?
