After reading all the great post and seeing people pulling in the stripes from the Duct and even some WITH 2 IN 1 DAY not mentioning any names..StriperBill..Congrats by the way. I figured I would give my first chance of 09 a try....Well a try I did, I started off at Munz Ranch for nothing, then moved to another unnamed spot for about an hour with no luck, not even followers..Tried a couple more spots with no love..I did meet another member from the board at my last spot.Dont want to name him in case he doesnt want to be know, but at least I can say I met a new friend from fishing. Thanks for the advice and cant wait to fish again man. Can't wait to post with pics of the stripes I earned, until then Happy fishing!

Takes paitence hang in there and your day will come soon, don't give up cause you will get one. Learning the aqueduct is the important thing when putting your time in. It was hard for me and all others that have not fished it before. When you least expect it, then:EyePop:whammmmmmmmmo!

S,EYE ,,,Youre day is comming for that striper.
And WELCOME to the world of STRIPER FEVER,,lol.

It,s a powerfully strong SICKNESS :Big Grin: that has gotten ahold of some of us and it has no cure.

One can only hope to TEMPORAIRLY releive the symptoms by catching as many stripers as possible<With the best medicine of all being GODZILLA size fish>:LOL:

I am not sure if its a sickness or a fever(Stripes of Course). How about we all claim disability from Stripers Disease? Maybe the State will have some mercy on our souls and pay us to fish for a while? Seems like the Striper Disease has taken this board over.

But seriously, I have found that I can catch 36+ schoolie's in a day and that will hold me over temporarily. A big DD non schoolie will cure you!!! Atleast until next trip.

LoL Where do I sign up for the Striper disability!:LOL:

I think if we file here in Ca. we would all just get IOU checks on a Bi-weekly basis. State is broke and it's no joke.
