Been almost 4 months since I last fished the aqueduct and I had a bad itch that needed to be scratch. I made a vampire run last night to a gate on the aqueduct in Fresno County. First thing I noticed was that the water was not running. Rats! I knew fishing was going to be tough. So I threw out the jerk bait for nothing. Flukes were next and nothing as well. After 30 minutes of not getting a bite, I was scratching my head as to what I could use next. Went through the tackle box and found a swim bait. Threw that out, let it hit the bottom, then started my slow retrieve. Score! I had a bite and it was fish on. First fish was 21 inches and into my backpack it went. Next cast and boom, had another fish on. Same sized fish so into the backpack it went as well. Grab my other rod and made my way home. Started fishing at 5:30 and stopped at 6:15. Home by 7:30 and got the fish all fillet and ready to cook.
