Congrats! Biggest I ever got was 12 lbs. from below Truman Dam. Just curious if you were targeting hybrids or did he just happen to hit. What were you using if you dont mind me asking.

Nice! Thanks for sharing.

The stripes on your fish aren't broken like a hybrid should be. Funny, we've been catching some whites on Bull Shoals that have broken stripes.

Best I've done of hybrids is using crawdad tails on Grand Lake, Elk River Arm.

That is a stallion. Nice fish.

Please do fill us in on your technique if you can. Were you fishing for whites? or Hybrids specifically?

There are times of the year I can catch those birds' at will and there are times when I have no idea where to start looking for them. Always curious about techniques when I see someone catch them. They are definitely my favorite fish to catch.

Yes we were fishing for hybrids like we allways are!!! I caught it on a swim bait.

lilley Nothing in nature is exact. If you look close you can see the broken lines.

Yes I did release this fish alive!!!!

What type of swimbait? Did you catch others? Were they agressive? or did you have to slow it down? I know that I should be able to target them where I like to fish right now, but I don't catch them when I am catching whites, so I know they must be on a slightly different pattern. Probably in the same body of water right now, but not where I am fishing. How far up the tributaries do you find them this time of year? 1/3? 1/2? all the way up? Sorry, I have a lot of questions. Don't feel obligated to answer anything that would jeopordize your spot.

Nice fish and props to you for keeping the generations alive.

Chris - I'm guessing it was a softbody swimbait slow-rolled through the strike zone. The tailwaters dont seem warm enough yet for them to be hitting aggressively. Just my opinion though.
