View Full Version : Kitty Fest Anyone??

04-28-2006, 10:02 PM
Years back we met at Oroville which was awsome. 8-) I was wondering if anyone wanted to get together again? I had a lot of fun and met some really great people. The weather is nice and the fishing will be getting hot. Any suggestions for where we should meet? Camping trip?

lets do it!

As snoop dog would say, "fo shizzle my nizzle" ;D ;D ;D I'm pretty sure that means Oh hell yes!
What do think about New Melones? I've never fished there but I've heard there are some monsters in there??

New Malones, Don Pedro, Folsom, Oroville, Port of Sacramento, Camp Far West. Maybe in June?

I'm game... the port might be the perfect place to have it. what do you guys think?

05-01-2006, 08:26 AM
In the mean time until we can get something worked out, I was going to hit the port on 5/12 and fish the fullmoon, PM me if you are interested in getting together then.

Oh please, ANYTIME but June :). We went to the Oroville fest, it was really fun. My daughter is getting married in June, and ouch...I like New Melones!

wherever is clever. i'm not stuck on any spot. whatever ya'll think. i'm famaliar with the port and if we fish there we can get a lot of cats but probably not too many with any size. seems to be the way things go there

Unfortunately not available on the 12th, but if we're taking a vote for the "kitty fest", put me down for New Melones. Till then,

I think July would probably be better fishing due to the great heat. When is the full moon in July that may be the best time. Plus I am trying to get off the second week of July.

I was at the Oroville CatFest and it was a great time. I'd be up for doing it again. July or August would be better for us. Oroville, Melones, Hogan, Collins all good by me as long it is a lake where we can fish as late into the night as we want.

05-06-2006, 12:03 AM
Melones Sounds Good To me! I would be down!

05-06-2006, 08:19 PM
Clear Lake or Berryessa are good catfish lakes.

05-07-2006, 12:11 PM
I've never fished for the cats at NM but I've seen some monsters others have caught. Berrysessa has great cat fishing too. And Clear Lake without question.

05-15-2006, 04:04 PM
hmm it seems Melones has the Vote right now, any of you guys thinken about some dates for the fest

05-15-2006, 05:19 PM
A weekend is a must for me, I think Holly asked for July and I would have to agree and as far away from the 4th as possible do to the holiday.

05-15-2006, 05:53 PM
July 29 (or whatever date is a Saturday that week) would work for me. I'm going to New Melones this weekend, I'm gonna try to get in a little night cattin. I'll post up if I have any luck.

07-04-2006, 09:01 PM
Has any one set a date yet? have you all gone allready? Did you all cancel? Did you all forget? Any how count me in if you all still decide to go. Ive been told there are some monsters in new melones.

07-05-2006, 01:06 PM
The weekend of the 29th would be out for me now because that is Hellstock.

07-05-2006, 01:17 PM
I'll be at New Melones from the 21-24th. Wouldn't mind getting away from the wife and meeting up with some sniffers. ;)

07-05-2006, 01:17 PM
How about first weekend of august?

07-05-2006, 02:39 PM
I'd like to "fest", but I'm on the clock that weekend :(

07-05-2006, 10:34 PM
Sometime in August would be good. I'm not going to be around in July. Is this going to be a bankie fest?

07-05-2006, 11:21 PM
How about 8 mile in Stockton? August would probably be best.

07-08-2006, 03:04 PM
Any other ideas on when or where we can do this? Or is this whole idea slowly fading into a pipe dream?

08-08-2006, 10:43 PM
Hey Guys and Gals the state fair starts friday and everyone knows thats the first sign that summer is coming to an end. :'( Are we ever going to do this or what? I am looking at a nice fullmoon and wishin I was fishin right now.

08-09-2006, 07:34 PM
Guess it was just a pipe dream. Too bad i was looking forward to a kitty fest. ;)

08-09-2006, 10:53 PM
We have been been fishing lake oroville every weekend for the last few weeks. We bring in one or two a weekend 23 to 25 inches but we know the big one is out there. We will be there this weekend if anyone is interested in bank fishing all night....

08-10-2006, 06:54 PM
Why don't we make this a simple trip. We could all go to 8 mile or Whiskey Slough and do some night fishin', and if you have a boat, you could launch it and roam the sloughs. Make it a night trip and everyone can stay cool.

08-10-2006, 07:48 PM
I think the best thing to do it to announce a date and location and potential cost etc. Put the info on a new thread for all to read. Nailing down that will get people commited. I would like to go too.
