Aqueduct Snow Fishing

Hello everyone,
Went up to the duct and landed a 6.6 and 25.5 inch long Torpedo Striper on a Rattle Trap lure. This one had the weird head, I called it a torpedo head. Here is my pic. MERRY CHRISTMAS To All.

Wow, that is the weirdest looking striper I've ever seen! Did you keep or release them?

Thanks for the report and pic! I have to get back out there to fish with you again soon. I hope all is well.

Nice to see you working the duct again. What I can't swallow is how a Sheep Head made it to the duct, survived and bred with the locals.

Thanks Guys. In the belly of this Striper had 6 smelt in it. This was the second one I have landed in a year and half. I kept it Wahoo. Real pretty up here when it snows up at the duct or in the Antelope Valley.

Bill, that is great that you braved the elements and have a fish to show for it. That is the oddest looking striper I have ever seen. 6 smelt, must have been hungry. I actually went up there and was going to fish Thursday around noon but when I got there, I chickened out. I didn't want to slip in, lol. I did take a couple of pics though.





This one was on the way back that shows highway 14 empty because it was still closed.

That striper looks like it's got a serious overbite. Doesn't that striper's head remind anyone of Bubba from Forest Gump.
Anyways, great job in the snow, die hard angler.

you guys have just met your first striper which we call "Pugs" (because they look like that breed of dogs) on the East Coast. Very uncommon, but I did see one caught at Montauk by a friend. If you do a search on East Coast striper boards you will find pictures of similar striped bass. I have been told that "pugs" do not get very big as nobody I have spoken to has ever seen one over 25 lbs, but they live normal lives... I do not know what causes it...nice pictures
