Anyone know what is the biggest KAT taken (record) from the California Delta?
Can only offer this recognized record for the Delta area:
catfish, white 22 lbs 0 oz William Land Park northeastern pond (Sacramento)March 21, 1994 James Robinson (Sacramento)
That white cat was taken from a pond Plumbertom1. It was a freak of nature as it absolutely smashed the old record.
Black Mac, I saw pictures of a cat that was in the 60 pound range (my memory is a little fuzzy). It was a blue cat caught in the delta on the San Joquin side. Lots of controversy surrounds the catch as blues don't inhabit the delta (supposedly). However, there are now reports of a biologist who says he released a bunch of baby blues many years ago into the delta so anything is possible I guess. I'm not sure what to believe anymore, but that's the biggest cat I've heard of coming from the Delta.
I'm skeptical. . .
Yeah, Randy I read it said it came from a pond, thats why I said the delta area instead of the delta.
Unfortunatly finding records for just the Delta waters is beyond anything I can do.
I have no doubt that channel cats have been caught larger than that White.
And if there are blues in the Delta, well, all bets are off.
I personally would like to see flat heads introduced to the Delta. It would add to the great game fishing thats already there.
I don't see what the advantage to white cats are, all I've ever seen caught are smallish fish. I have no idea what their normal mature size is.
I live about 5 miles away from that pond. I used to catch big trout in the winter when they would stock it. It's also loaded with gills and carp.
Thanks for all the info... this site ROCKS!!!

So back in 2005 I miss the California Delta record by "1 Pound!" ?(21 Pounds :embarassed
I thought I had it for a munite - but oh well :0a14:
(A Photo of that fish is in the B.O.C. Hall Of Fame - in the Ca. section
(& for the all of the -Non-belivers out there - LoL :wink :0a23:
I wanna catch one :dribble:
Do you think punch bait will work well in the delta? I was going to try a little the next time out...
Hey Mac - I know that it will. :wink:
"Go For It"! :0a23:
Hey Bert, do you know where they keep roll for delta records?
I couldn't find any thing for the delta of the individual rivers.
I will let you know how I do... all I need now is a little time, lol
Tom, here is a link to calif. inland records.... haven't checked for delta yet.
Great link thank you...
Yeah Ray, I've got that one but I was looking for local records.
I emailed Department of Fish & Game regarding records for the delta... let's see what they say.
That was a nice fish you caught Shania. It was a Channel Cat however that you caught, not a white cat. They are two different fish. White cats don't normally get very big. May you be blessed with many more big channel cats. .
I'll check on that for you right now Buddy. (stand by):wink:
I could only come up with these sites - I hope that you could find something useful here.
(oh :embarassed - "It was a shot" - But It was a nice dream while it lasted. :0a14:
Hey Bert: your are the BOC viewer pic in my Catfishin America T.V. Show, Vidio was shot in Madison,In. :wink:
