went out today, started early around 5am. Started with the fluke caught 2 16 inchers. Had one that felt big went under the line with floating balls by the gates and snapped my line.

Then tried a shad hard jointed swim lure and caught 3 one which was 19.

All that before 630.

Decided to head to the eastern side of the duct and seems the fish are in the cooler shaded side in the morning. caught and released 13 stripers on anchovie. Ranged between 15-18.

Nothing but catch and release today basically because im not in the mood for fish.

Had fun, havent had this much action in a couple months. Especially in the huron/avenal area

I don't fish bait so can't help you there but advise I give you is fish around the gates not open water more fish holding in those areas. I saw this guy doing really well with bait he would use a really small pinch on or flyline his bait only 12-15 feet out and walk along as his bait went down current he never got further that 50 yards befor he got a fish. Striper and catfish. I use flukes and LC128

the bite has really picked up in the last week ,catching in areas that usally only hold a couple of fish and pulling them out in numbers now ,3 inch swim shad twitched near the shoreline and 5 to 10 feet down. now that I moved into the 21st century and have a cell phone as soon as I figure it out I,ll post more pics of the days action.

went out yesterday after work in the huron area. Gates are down all the way. tried the side rails before the gates hooked on one but it was a feisty one and unhooked itself.

Went to the gates and as i said gates all the way down, used a 120LC blue and white with orange under the front. first cast hooked a 22 inch striper. 5 mins later got a 19 inch. Released both.

Water is still no boils. Casting up twards the gates and retrieving slow with a a jerk. 7ft abu spining reel combo with a 10 lb red color line.

Fought a carp for 30 plus minutes on thursday , only to pull the hook out of its lip.used the same old swim shad . Fish surfaced 3 times and looked to be about 3 foot and 20 to 25 pounds , using 8 lb line with a 3 inch soft swim shad.gates are alllll the way up and the fish have moved away from the gates and are hanging out on the inside edge after the bends .caught 8 shakers today tossing upstream and twitching it back down all fish were close to the bank.
