    Frank, both braunig and calaveras are good catfishin' lakes.
    Some basic but always good areas are the 181 cove, the bridge and the powerlines, as well as the dishcarge cable. (calaveras)
    I use danny kings punchbait and do well. I like to use it under a float but lots of times will use it on bottom (carolina rigged w/ a small float on the leader) do a search on here for Danny kings and there should be plenty of inof on how to rig it.
    I use a small float, #6 treble and a split shot...simple as can be.
    The coves are generally good and the bridge always has some fish under it. Just tie up to one of the pylons and fish vertical.
    Hope this helps and good luck

    Welcome to the B.O.C Frank,
    I've been here for a few months and have learned quite a bit. Cliff (Hillcountryfishin) always offers some good advice. I like to fish both lakes although I've caught more fish at Braunig but when all the park is open at Calaveras it offers more places to fish(bank fishing). I've caught 1 1/2 to 2 pounders from the bank at Cally and recently started fishing from a boat (can't wait to get a motor!!!) There's lots of info here so take your time and have some fun searching.
