    Kern County, southern San Joaquin Valley CATFISH DERBY: Bob's Bait Bucket's annual month-long July catfish derby started July 1. The entry fee is $1 per angler and you must register before you weigh in a fish. Only fresh fish can be weighed in and no weighing in of fish the same day as entering derby. The biggest catfish weighed in during July will take the $100 prize, plus all the entry fee money from everyone entered. There are currently 188 anglers signed up so the pot is at $288. The current leader is Donnie Wilson, Bakersfield, with a 14-pounder caught from the aqueduct this past week. Call Bob's Bait (661) 833-8657.
