Felt like giving the AV duct yet another try so yesterday I sent texts to 3 friends that live down that way. 1 of them already had other plans but the other 2 said sure, lets do it.
Left town at 0400, stopped in Rosamond to pickup Mike then onto Palmdale to pickup Zoli. We started at Ave S and worked our way east. At the first stop we notice that the water level is a little low and the flow is pretty fast. I see one, about 15 inches chasing my Lucky Craft Pointer 128 but he wouldn’t commit, he followed it in twice but no love. I then switched to a BassTrix Paddle Tail Swimbait with a Blade Runner Swimbait Insert thinking he might want something different but after about 20 minutes of nothing we decide that its time to make a move so we headed east, nothing at the next few spots.
As we pass Barrel Springs we noticed that the gates were wide open, you could have taken a kayak under the gate, they were that high. We didn’t stop because there were already 2 or 3 cars sitting there. Next few spots, no love. At the final spot Mike catches one on a Zoom Fluke rigged on a 1 ounce lead head that went about 14-15……… Inches, HA! The group skunk is gone, Woo Hoo! As he is unhooking it I hookup with his fishes brother. I then caught 2 more under the bridge, both were carbon copies of the other 2.
All 3 of mine were also caught in the Fluke. Because of their size I didn’t bother taking any pictures and I also opted to let them go to grow up instead of putting them in the ice chest.
Its 0930 now and Zoli had stuff to take care of at home so we dropped him off and headed west. We worked every spot but didn’t get bit at all. We did notice that the further west we went the more dirty the water was as well as an increase in floating weeds. Guess we should have gone back east but oh well, I still had a great time. Spent the day fishing with good friends and caught 3 stripers, which ties my all time duct record for amount caught in one day.
Thanks for visiting my site. Be sure to tell all of your fishing buddies and come back soon
Until Next Time, Good Luck and Tight Lines To Ya!
