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.

Great Fishing TackleHybrids and Lake Stripers: Hybrids and Lake StripersHybrids are a cross between a white bass and a striped bass. Hybrids and stripers can be caught with simlar methods.

Lures and Terminal: Heavy spoons and jigs are productive in fast water. Minnow and shad imitations are effective in slacker water. Crankbaits can be very productive. Soft plastics like Berkley Gulp will be useful. Some of the best selling hybrid lures include the Smithwick "Devils Horse" and the Luhr-Jensen Pet Spoon.

Rods/Reels/Line: Hybrids/stripers are strong, hard-hitting fish. A long, medium flex rod will absorb shock then keep the fish hooked. A good strong reel is required such as Penn Sargus reels. Stripers are rough on line so keep it changed regularly.

winter. Winter can be the simplest time of the Hybrid fishing year; it often boils down to purely finding where baitfish school - Hybrid will be near trying to build up their energy supplies. Structure, while always important, is less important in Wintertime Hybrid fishing.

The majority of hybrid fishermen use bait, but a growing number use artificials. Match the local baitfish in size and color with trolling lures or plugs that imitate. Recently, two of the most popular lures have included Smithwick Devils Horse and Luhr-Jensen Pet Spoon.

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.
