HESPERIA LAKE: Good catfish action with 1,000-pound plants last Thursday and this Thursday. The best action has been on the marshmallow-meal worm combo, shrimp, and mackerel. Most of the fish are in the two to five-pound range, but bigger fish are in each plant. Top catches this past week include a 10-pounder landed by Luis Cota, Victorville, on mackerel off the south shoreline. Brandon Reiter, Redlands, landed a nine-pound cat , while Art Hoplains, Hesperia, landed five cats totaling 38 pounds. Peyton Hazelett, Hesperia, landed her first fish — a three-pound catfish.
