Cool report. Did you notice if any of the resorts were closed?

Nice job, Minnow! That must have been one killer trip. Can't wait for the pics!!! [smiley=angling.gif]

Having recently moved to the area, I just started fishing berryessa last week. So far I have caught only one catfish in three outings. It wasn't very big but it was darn tasty, I must say.

PP, I noticed the Spanish Flat resort is now closed.

Any tips on where to shorefish? I started at the very north end and have been working my way down the west side of the lake, although I have still been fishing north of the "party bridge".

I have been concentrating on flat areas near stream inlets, although most of them have dried up. Also been fishing in the evening, generally from 8-10:30. Should I stay later, should I go south?

Catfish on the surface? How deep was was the spot you were fishing in? Also, were you in a boat or bank? Nice job.

Nice catch! Its true if you want to catch big cats, you have to fish at night. I heard this from many fisherman, and it look like you were doing the same thing. It looks like almost all your fish that you catch are at night. Cool Pic's.
