Cooper is covered in baby hybrids they were on top all evening Friday. what is the growth rate on hybrids?
Growth to 11 to 18 inches in length and 8 oz to 1 pound in the first year.
and 18 to 24 in length and 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 pounds in the second year is common. Growth rate declines rapidly with increasing age and is similar in males and females. Record weight for a hybrid hybrid striped bass is 27 pounds 5 ounces.
From what I've experienced at lake Somerville it takes almost three years to get a 20+ inch fish and there are very few over 8 pounds. lots of them in the 18+ / 4 to 5# class...
