Hybrid Striped Bass and Landlocked Striper Fishing and Tackle:

Hybrid striped bass, known by many names including wiper or whiterock bass, is a hybrid between the striped bass (Morone saxatilis) and the white bass (M. chrysops). Landlocked Striped bass are an anadromous fish that have become landlocked or have been stocked in landlocked water. Some stripers could go back to the sea, but for various reasons stay in fresh water.

Hybrid Striper fishing [A1, A2, A3] picks up beginning in early spring and into summer as hybrids become extremely active. As surface temperatures increase in the summer, hybrids move deeper into cooler water.

Here are some decent tackle tips for catching Hybrid Stripers:
  • Hybrids are not generally picky and will take flashy, moving lures. Productive baits include all types of imitation minnow baits, crank baits, jigs, spoons, both diving and top water lures
  • Although Hybrids are tough fighters heavy tackle is not necessary. Light to medium rods/reels are usually sufficient and will allow for better feel and hook sets; long rods of 5-1/2 to 8 ft are better. Line strength of 8 to 10 pounds, on a standard bait-casting or spinning reel, yields long casts and enough power to bring in running fish.
  • Hybrids are hard hitting fish and often throws the lure before you can set; use the sharpedst hooks and keep them sharp.
  • Hybrid striped bass hooking mortality increases greatly when water temperatures exceed 70oF. Increase survival on released fish by landing fish quickly, reducing handling time, keeping fish in the water as hook is removed, and cutting the line on deeply hooked fish. Try using a circle hook if using live bait.
