We'd have to be there before 9pm on Friday, but even earlier would be better, to set up camp. The cost of camping is $25 for the site, and good for 4 people. Fishing fees paid then, as well... $24 ea. We could put out the word to others, if they wanted to do the same. That could drop the price to 6 buck each. Under Winter Camping rates it states: " If you check in for camping after 3:00pm, you will not be charged fishing fees or lake entrance fees for that day, you will only be charged fishing or entrance fees for the following day.
Norm has a 6 person tent. You don't have to camp you can join us in the morning.
$25.00 per campsite per night (up to 4 people per site) plus your fishing fees per person per day. (no exceptions) 25 divided by 4 is $6.25 each for the campsite

There are huge channel and blue catfish in Irvine Lake so anglers should fish with heavy spin combos and line in the 15 to 20 pound class. Catfish feed heavily in the shallow portions of the lake and a good bite could take place at any time of the day or night.
The top choice for catfish bait is chunks of mackerel. Anglers also report catching heavy limits of whiskerfish on night crawlers, chicken liver and shrimp. Adding catfish scent to any kind of cut bait will increase your odds of catching fish. Fish with a big hook in the number 2/0 to 5/0 size and let the catfish run off a little with the bait in its mouth before you strike hard on the fish. Fly lining, sliding egg sinker rigs and a double hook setup are all effective when catfish put on the feed bag.
Hot spots for catching catfish include: the west shore, boat dock cove, Sierra Cove and in Santiago Flats.
