My 4 yr old decided she is ready to start fishing, so I took her to Dixon Sat night. We fished for about an hour and she caught her first and second fish, all by herself. She had a blast.
I love the species variety at Dixon. Out of the handful of sunfish we caught, there were 3 types... pumpkinseed, bluegill, and what appeared to be a green. I took my son there recently and he caught a small grass carp.
Speaking of grass carp, we saw a big dead one on the shore. Some one else reported that maybe it had been caught.
It stank but I measured it anyway... nearly 40" and it maxed out my scale... over 30 lbs. It had weird orange spots on its head... not sure if that's a disease.
The habitat seems to be good for grass carp, as there's a ton of weeds and I've seen the fins and tails of big ones every time I've been there in the last year. Maybe a new state record in the making?
