Thinking about trying some early morning Catfish action at Mesquite Old City Park lake. Anyone got tips or pointers for this location?

Or should I be trying somewhere else?

There was a pic of 60lb yellow that was caught out of Old City Park. That lake gets stocked with catfish all the time.

Yeah, I saw that Yella Cat on another post. And I keep hearing about the stockings. Think I'm gonna have to give it a try soon.

the one with the 60 pounder was drained a few years ago i believe. Palos Verdes pond i think? I went last summer and its full of 6 inch mud cats and some carp. I believe Kalub caught some nice bass out of it from some pics he had last year.


My fish is bigger than yours!

Isn't Palos Verdes the pond off of Northwest in Mesquite? Are we talking about the same place?

I remember a post about a guy catching a huge catfish out of the city park lake in Mesquite. It may have weighed 60 lb. He had pics and it was definitely City Park Lake in Mesquite. Was it a hoax?

That pic looked real to me. It looked a lot like Palos Verdes off Northwest in the background. I am almost positive it was Palos Verdes and not the city park one off Galloway. The guy who caught the 60 pounder released it.

they completely drained palos verdes probably 6 or so years ago. and had to restock everything. that 60 pounder if came from there was probably taken and dropped from ray hubbard? . there have been huge cats and carp in city lake caught. kidfish stocks ther and evry 2 week stocking. anyway i have had good luck in the heat of the summer on ray hubbard at zion rd. piers on chicken liver. caught a big blue cat 2 years ago and alot of good eaters out there. heard a big bass out at palos verdes was caught. a neighbor said. palos verdes had bream and small cats the time or 2 i went lately

I don't always catch fish, but when I do, I prefer Dos Hybrids
