Default Any experienced anglers around here?

I just started fishing and wanted to see if anyone wants to learn a newbie. Usually I go to the sacramento river near cal expo, but also have been to folsom lake a couple times.

Thanks for the suggestions I'll checkout fishsniffer.

I have been going for catfish and striped bass, but all I have caught are small ones.

Have you guys tried Discovery Park? I'm thinking of trying that out next weekend.

Some of the biggest catfish I've ever caught have come out of the sloughs, not so much out of the Sac river (we would use big stinky chicken livers for bait) and fish at night.
The deep water channel can produce some nice Stripers, but you will get plenty of shakers tho.

My usual go to spots are along the American, between Watt Ave. and Paradise beach, plenty of honey holes, you just gotta get out and explore.

FWIW, a co-worker used to spear fish for stripers and would usually come back with a 40-50# fish, this was just up river from Watt Ave.

If you feel like driving for a bit, Rancho Seco has some good size Black Bass, another co-worker nails some 10-15# Black Bass at night using big swim baits.

Not to deviate from the topic, but how did that 300blk shoot?

If your looking for a fun trip

Your local waters may hold a surprise.

This blog has inspired me to investigate local streams and rivers in my area.

Whatever you do just don't ever pickup a Suntech Kurenai 39.
Simply the best of the best made fishing rod there is.

Nice, yeah the only luck I have had with were chicken liver and anchovie. Want to try out nightcrawlers, clams, and shrimp next time.

Been busy lately and haven't had a chance to try out that BLC2, next week if I get some time I'll load some up.

Did you use up all the CFE 223?

I'll read into this, never really thought about catching smaller fish. Can you use them as bait?
