View Full Version : 8 mile still producing!

I fished the 8 mile area again last night. I caught a 7 pound channel cat on cheese bait! I caught just one and stopped fishing, I am sure I would have caught more if I had fished later. As I was leaving about 8:30 pm, the river bank were packed with people night fishing.

Where is 8 mile area?

8 mile is in north stockton just off of I-5. I come from Tracy so I make a left. There are 3 bridges. The first one is very popular for bank anglers, actually they all are. If you go down to the end of the road you can make a left and there is a couple of miles of bank fishing access. There is also, 3 marinas with lunch ramps and stores. I fish on a private island generaly, but there are many good spots open to the public!

nice cat and thanks for sharing the pictures 8)one hit one fish or was the bite steady?

It was one hit one fish, I left just as the bite started. Other days last week the bite was steady for a couple of hours!

id like to get an overnight temp ;D anyone have an idea? i may just hit my favorite island for the night and see how things are ;D last trip produced a 7,4 and a 3. not too bad. but i know those 20+ are still in there ;D maybe try a big bluegill on a slip rig or a big fat jumbo monnow to land one b

Looks good, I would have figured that the bite had slowed down there. If i go night fishing I'd have to be sure to really pack on the jackets, its starting to get cold out there.

I will be at those islands tonight! I know it will be cold. As soon as the sun goes down it gets cold and everything not covered gets wet! A nice fire helps!
