Me and my lady Savanna Burkhart decided to fish Lake Cuyamaca the morning of Monday Sept. 18, 2017. We bought some worms and mackeral at the bait store just before 9 a.m. and headed to the west shore 100 yards or so from the buoy line. We both had our trout poles setup with Carolina rigs and 4-pound fluorocarbon. We tossed some worms on #14 hooks and about 30 minutes later, I had caught a good 4- to 5-pound catfish. After catching a couple bluegill in the mix, we decided to cut some mackerel and use a heavier Carolina rig. 2-ounce egg with 8-pound fluorocarbon and #6 treble hook. We were able to cast out a bit farther and after about an hour, we brought in 2 more cats weighing in around 3- to 4 pounds including a white channel cat that blew my mind because I have never seen or heard of one before. After about 11 a.m., we decided we had enough for a few dinners and decided to head out. Thanks for keeping us up to date in the Western Outdoor world!
