Fish Profile - Striper - Hybrid

 

Hybrid Striped Bass-  Seven or eight black stripes, broken and above lateral.  Dark back, almost black with silvery sides and white belly.  Produced in hatcheries. 

Tips:  Jigs and crank baits, live shad, and cut bait. Trolling, cast to schooling fish.

Techniques
Fishing for wipers is typically best during the twilight hours (sunrise and sunset). On calm summer evenings they can be seen breaking the water surface in pursuit of schools of shad. In the Ohio River they tend to concentrate in the tail water outflows below the dams. In reservoirs, watch for fish breaking the surface near points and creek mouths, and try to make long casts into schools of feeding fish. They spend most of their life in offshore areas, so most wipers are caught by anglers fishing from a boat, but shore anglers occasionally get the thrill of a lifetime when a wiper wanders close to shore and takes their bait.

Hybrid striped bass are active predators and can be caught on a variety of artificial, live, or cut baits. They consume primarily gizzard shad, so just about any artificial bait that simulates a shad will work. The most popular artificial baits are soft plastic jerk baits, crank baits, casting spoons, and spinner baits. Large shiners or shad, live or cut, are also popular baits; however, if no fish are available, chicken liver can be an effective bait as well. Live and cut baits can be suspended under a bobber or over the side of a boat. In tailwaters, use a large weight to keep live or cut bait in the current below the dam outflows.

Hybrid bass are a cross between striped bass and white bass. They were originally developed to provide large sportfish that have the fighting quality of striped bass and feed on open water prey fish. Hybrid bass are stocked in waters with large populations of forage fishes and do not appear to compete with sunfishes or black bass.

Hybrid bass are similar in appearance to both parents. They have two patches of teeth on their tongues like striped bass, but are deep-bodied like white bass. The dark stripes found on hybrid bass are usually broken into short dashes.

Hybrid bass are most often produced from a female striped bass and a male white bass. The young grow well in the hatchery and are usually stocked in the fall as fingerlings.

Hybrid bass are popular sportfish. They are hard fighting and good eating. Anglers use the same fishing methods as those for white bass.
