The aqueduct has been kicking out good numbers of striper with a few of the larger models mixed in. Striper readily ate cut baits, jumbo live minnows, and lugworms last week. They also fell for the usual lures line-up of Flukes, jerkbaits, and topwater. Most of the action was reported near the control gates, but a few anglers reported limits while soaking baits on the inside bends of the aqueduct. Catfishing is usually a good bet in the aqueduct, and last week was no different. Anglers reported decent numbers and a few big cats eating dip bait, chicken liver, and sardines soaked on the bottom. Bass have been biting drop shot, Senkos, and weightless flukes fished in the eddies and slower moving water. Topwater also worked for anglers throwing Whopper Ploppers parallel to the banks.
