Are Hybrid Striped Bass Right for Your Pond?
by http://www.pondking.com

Posted ImageThe hybrid striped bass is a cross between the white bass and the striped bass. This is a fast growing, hard fighting fish that can be a nice addition to your pond. Hybrid stripers are well suited for ponds because they are more resilient to extreme temperatures and low dissolved oxygen. They can be distinguished from a striped bass by noticing the broken, rather than solid, lines running down the side of the body. These bass have an aggressive appetite and will slam top water lures as well as jigs, spinners, and soft plastics, which gives anglers a variety of choices for lures.

Known for their fighting ability these fast growers have the ability to reach 12 inches in the first year of life, can easily achieve weights up to 6-pounds in three years, and will live about 5– 7 years. Stripers are considered a lesser predator than the largemouth bass due to its smaller mouth size, so don’t believe the myth that they will eat every other fish in your pond.
