Hybrids From Fry to Fried

Hybrids From Fry to Fried - 03/03/20 01:57 AM

Hybrid striped bass are known for aggressive feeding habits which makes them highly sought-after by anglers. Often schooling by the thousands, these stocked fish surface feed on baitfish such as shad. Often called "breaking", this surface feeding makes the fish visible and easy to catch on a wide array of lures and baits. Popular lures include casting spoons, buck-tail jigs, soft-body plastic fish replicas, and inline spinners.
They became part of aquaculture in the United States in the late 1980s. Most producers purchase the fish young (as fry or fingerlings) and raise them in freshwater ponds. Currently, about 10 million lb (4.5 million kg) are produced annually in the United States. Hybrid striped bass are used both as a gamefish and a food fish.

FAIR. Water lightly stained; 61 degrees. Striper fishing is slow on main lake humps. White bass are good in shallow areas near creeks and inlets. Largemouth bass are fair in creeks and grassy shorelines with square billed crankbaits, jerk baits, plastic creatures, and spinners. Catfish are good with live and cut bait throughout the lake.

Blue cats are good up shallow on punch bait and on cut shad drifted over deep water near the dam and the water intake. Also some channel cat reported over baited holes in 12-14 feet.

Crappie fishing still good up Chambers Creek at the I-45 service road. Lots of bank fishing going on.

PALESTINE — Water level is about 1.5 feet low and stained up north, clear down south. Water temp in the low 50s.

Richland-Chambers Reservoir is the third largest inland reservoir by surface area and the 8th largest reservoir by water volume in Texas formed by the impoundment of Richland Creek and Chambers Creek east-southeast of the town of Corsicana and south of Kerens, in Navarro County and Freestone County, Texas, USA.

One of our nation's hardest fighting fish is the hybrid striped bass, which congregate in the free-flowing tailrace waters below major reservoir dams while answering nature's false call for the spring spawn.

Many folks who Striper fish regularly feel that the Hybrid / Striper is the better "fight" on rod n' reel. Maybe it's because of the wide & tall back these fish have.

Hyrbid striped bass are a cross between striped bass and white bass. This cross was first produced in South Carolina in the mid 1960’s mixing eggs from a female striped bass and sperm from a white bass. These “original cross” fish are often referred to as Palmetto bass. In recent years eggs from a white bass female and a striped bass male have been mixed to create a Sunshine bass. Hybrid striped bass are a very popular sportfish throughout the Southeast, particularly in large reservoirs.
