   Me and my Buddy hiked down to Serrano Beach in Miller Cyn on Saturday evening. We landed two cats off the floating dock, using hi low rigs. I had live crawfish that I caught the night before, and mackeral cut bait. Right as the sun was going down, I got my first bite. The Rangers pulled up twice on boats to check my fishing license and to see what was in my bucket. It was just live crawfish. Very nice evening, relaxing. I had my t-pod fish finder out, saw alot of fishing about 10-15 ft out from the end of the dock, 20 ft down hanging out. Thinking they were large mouth, would see them swim by every so often.

 

   Not the biggest cats ever caught in Silverwood, but still fun. Here is a video of my trip.....  https://youtu.be/gTCN3HbFgSE

 

  This is also a video of how I caught my crawfish, I had the GoPro inside the trap underwater....   https://youtu.be/0lw-suEuUaA

 

Good Luck out there everyone!

    SILVERWOOD: Good action for both catfish and stripers this past week. The stripers have been best on fly-lined cut baits with some of the fish in the four to six-pound class, but most smaller. Sardines, and blood worms (or lug worms) have been the best baits, and morning hours are the best. The catfish are showing on the same baits in the marina area and at the dam, with the better action during the day, oddly enough. Johnny Hwang, West Covina, had a mixed stringer of seven stripers and catfish, topped off by a seven-pound striper, all on sardines off the marina dock. Paul Monroe, Rancho Cucamonga, landed eight stripers on lug worms off the marina docks and his best fish was a three-pounder. The largemouth bass bite is fair on plastics and nightcrawlers in 10 to 30 feet of water. David Stewart, Hesperia, had bass and four and 2.2 pounds fishing drop-shot plastics near the dam. The bluegill bite is also fair, mostly on small baits fished under a bobber or fly-lined around structure. Trout slow. Anglers should be aware of health warnings for the consumption of fish from this lake because of high PCB and mercury levels in the fish flesh and skin. Here’s the direct link to a PDF brochure explaining consumption recommendations: http://www.oehha.ca.gov/fish/so_cal/pdf_zip/081013KioskadvySilverwood.pdf. Dock fishing is allowed for $3 for adults, $2 for kids and seniors. Private boats must be inspected for zebra and quagga mussels. Boats with wet lower units will be turned away. Boats inspected and tagged at Diamond Valley and Perris will be allowed at Silverwood. The park is open seven days a week.

Good action for both catfish and stripers this past week. The stripers have been best on fly-lined cut baits with a lot of the fish in the four to six-pound class. Sardines, and blood worms (or lug worms) have been the best baits. The catfish are showing on the same baits in the marina area and at the dam. The best action for both has been early and late in the day or for night anglers. Cody Sprankle and Randall Taylor, both Apple Valley, had four stripers and a catfish and the top striper was an 8-11, all on anchovies. Michael Guzman, Long Beach, had four stripers and catfish on sardines, topped off with an 8-3 striper at the dam. Tyler Abott, Crestline, had a pair of catfish off the docks that weighed 8-8 and 5-8. John Wang and David Fu, both San Diego, caught 15 stripers to three pounds off the dock on anchovies. Dawn, Marty, and Karina Davis, all Garden Grove, landed 30 stripers to two pounds at the dam on sardines, while Tyler and Mark Abbott, Crestline, had 20 stripers to 1-8 on sardines and blood worms off the dock. The largemouth bass bite is fair on plastics and nightcrawlers in 10 to 30 feet of water. The bluegill bite is also fair to good, mostly on small baits fished under a bobber or fly-lined around structure. Trout slow. Anglers should be aware of health warnings for the consumption of fish from this lake because of high PCB and mercury levels in the fish flesh and skin.
