Went up to the Aqueduct about 9am, looked over the water, had to cast out with the high winds teasing the fish with the first cast retrieving fast, casted a second time, retrieving slow, fish hit gentle but set the hook hard, started ripping my drag out and fighting him through the fast current, gates were open 1/2 way. The Striper just kept ripping my line back out, after 2 or3 times of the fish ripping my drag readjusted my drag and wore him out and got him in, about 9:30 am. Striper is 10 lbs 28.5 inches long! What a fight!!!
