After some other fishing plans fell through I decided to call up my dad and my buddy Rigo. We gathered our striper stuff and headed to the Sac. We had sardines, anchovies, nightcrawlers and I also had some lures and we didn’t get a bite! I take that back, My dad had a couple of bites but didn’t get into any fish.
A couple of hours went by and we decided to take the show on the road. We got to 2047 at around 4:30pm. 2047 is a drainage canal that runs through Colusa county. It is notoriously dirty but also has tons of catfish in it. Any time we want to be guaranteed catfish, we go to 2047. We had our striper poles so we were going for some monster cats but unfortunately all we were getting were mini bites. And we noticed that the bites were a bit slower than they have been in the past. This may be due to heavy pressure as 2047 is one of the most fished areas in all of Colusa County.
About 30 minutes into our fishing trip, I drew first blood. It was a tiny little baby cat that I hooked very deep so I cut off the hook and released the cat into the water with the hook still in mouth. I wasn’t quite sure with this fish. It was too small to eat and he was so small I felt like tearing out the hook would have killed him. He seemed to swim away with no problem but who knows if it survived. After that I threw on a smaller hook and a bit later I got into another small cat. I was able to release this one with no problems. My buddy Rigo also caught two small cats and my dad ended up getting skunked. Nonetheless I can’t complain. I had a great day with My dad and my good friend and that is always a blessing.
