Default hybrid bass 15 JAN

Took the afternoon off to enjoy the last of the warm spell and headed up Bayou Grande in the Outback. Launched out of Bill Dickson boat ramp. Just a little rain around 1500 hrs. then it quit. Beautiful back there, ospreys working the mullet, Blue Herons screaching at me for invading their turf, and I am wearing shorts and a tee shirt in January! Right at sunset hooked about a 27 inch hybrid striped bass on a Super Spook. Do we have white bass here? I dont remember seeing any stripes. He hit it about seven times before he found a hook...must have been hungry! Great fight on my ultralight Shimano but alas, I forgot a net and lost him trying to get him in the boat with me, so no picture! Fun getting the Yak wet!

Sir,
Thanks for the report & sharing!
Can just imagine/picture/hear those 'spreys letting you know they know you're there.
27" is a decent sized Striper. We loved to catch them back in Chesapeake Bay that size, but had to release 'em that size when they were ocean fish.

Catch 'em up.

That was a striper.
A 27 inch White Bass might be a world record.
Bet it was a blast watching him blow up on your lure.
I once had one blow up 11 times before I hooked up.
There probably was more stripers in the area, when they are that size, they like to run in big schools.
Water is probably a little cold for a good top water bite, but I don't know because I Have never fish there for them, anything below 60 degrees here and the top water is over.
A 1/4 or 3/8 ounce white bucktail jig might catch a few more if they are not wanting the top water
Have fun fishing and catch a biggun

Default striper feedback

Capt Collins, Thank you for the feed back. I'm gonna get back over there and work some jigs for them. Are stripers good to eat?

They're very good to eat. If the lines were broken (even just a little), it was a hybrid. Escambia river gets stocked with them every other year. They seem to have found their way out of the river though. I've seen two caught out if Bayou Texar.
