Gates were open all the way in the morning. Fishing was great!

Fish gods blessed me today. I caught a total of 7 fish today. But only 5 were keepers. Nice big stripers. I had to leave twice to drop my fish off at home and go back to be able to fish more. lol


These were my first 2 of the day. One big fat 22 incher. The other 18 1/2


Picture of the same two fish. You can see the size difference.


These were my next two of the day. a 20 and 19 1/2 inch catch.


Last one of the day. 18 1/2 incher

The two i threw back were id say about 15 inches.

On my last minnow i had today i had a big one hooked, but that bad boy snapped my line. I think the fish gods were telling me thats enough for the day.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't the 2013 CA striped bass fishing regulations state that there is "a daily bag and possession limit of two fish and a minimum size limit of 18 inches in length"?

Filling your daily bag limit, taking it home, and going back for more the same day is called poaching.

I dont think thats poaching. You people float that word too much. I fish up and down this canal. different spots different times of the day. Basically a 50 mile area for me. Floated this very question to a a warden yesterday. He said no its not illegal. He said if you take more than 2 fish at a time thats illegal. But they cant stop you from fishing throughout the day. But thanks. Guess ill just let you go on with this forum. Thought i would liven it up with some fishing talk because its dead. Continue with your poaching discussions that riddle this forum. That could be why its dead.

Nailed the big ones last night right before sunset . Fished off on of the bridges that let the creeks flow over the canal . Not even a bit off the cement creek. Then went to a spot with my brother that were referring to as the farm .Landed a 24 inch striper on a soft swim shad 3/4 ounce , it hit hard and ran with the current which made landing it hard with the gates 1/2 open on the delta mendota canal. Another 20 minutes later and the same soft bait nailed a huge catfish as soon as it hit the water. My brother tried to net it after ten minutes but missed. Fought it another 10 minutes with 10 lb line on the trout pole until it shook the hook. Great fight and i will try to get it again on monday before the weather turns again tuesday. I never saw the size but my brother said 4 foot when he compared it to the size of the net. Jaws is out there !!!

I'm starting to think the outside edge of a corner is where the fish are . both fish last night bit within 10 feet of the bank on the outside edge.The catfish are loaded with eggs right now , my brother landed 4 that were just loaded with eggs.

Lots of good hits but couldn't set the hook on the swim baits. The water in both canals was at a dead stop , Worked the lure slowly before they would bite but lost them all .
