Lures for hybrid striped bass

Recommended Posts

I'm heading to a lake this weekend I have never fished before. There is a decent population of hybrid striped bass in this lake. I have done some research and it looks like a walking/popping top water and clipless cranks are a good start. 

 

Any other recommendations for that species. I'm going to try and target largemouth and hybrids both on the same trip. 

 

I will be fishing from my kayak so I can target fish in the deeper parts of the lake if I spot something on my fish finder.

 

Any suggestions are appreciated.

In my lakes with hybrid strippers, aka “wipers”, the fish cruise around in open water chasing shad. One of my favorite baits is a blade bait in silver.

   Same here.   3/4 ounce Worden Roostertail is productive, also. Black or grey.

   I see you will be in a kayak. Be careful. Wear a PFD. Don't ask me why I say that.   😮    jj

I second all the recommendations above.  They are all about shad around here so pretty much anything white or chrome seems to a solid bet. 

 

Good luck, they are an absolute blast. They just pull and pull. They can be a handful when trying to remove treble hooks because they are so strong and feisty. Would recommend having a fish grip and pliers handy.

Hybrid strippers prefer dolla dolla bills.

Hybrid stripers like topwater walking baits, jerkbaits, paddle tail swimbaits, lipless baits, jigging spoons, flutter spoons, and jigging raps.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I have most of that covered going to check on my lure stash for some spoons. I have some just need to find them.

We had a lake around here with wipers, we would absolutely wear then out on big hammer swim baits that was a blast!

A good lure for hybrid stripers is the Bill Lewis Rat-L-Trap.

A-rig, chrome lipless, swimbait, chrome spoons, any top water if you see them busting shad in the morning or evening. In the morning you can look for the birds first to see if the are on bait fish, the hybirds/stripers will be near by.

Roadrunners or Spooks were all I've ever used much for them. But seriously, wear your PFD. Theyre like a bluegill crossed with a marlin, bulldog and then ruuuuuun.
