Very nice, indeed!
Most think the "Wiper" moniker is a combination of White bass and strIPER. However, some folks will also point to old Jerry Clower, on one of the fishing shows way-back-when (was it Bill Dance, Jimmy Houston, or someone else), and ol' Jerry would always comment that those things would "Wipe your Tackle Box out!"
Mike - It's a white bass x striped bass cross. They have the thermal tolerance of a white bass, but some of the size and strength of a striper. Our state record is just over 22 lbs. I believe, so I need to let this one grow and 5 or 6 pounds before I catch him again :)
Beautiful fish! Bucket list for me. Striper/White Bass hybrid .Called wipers here in NJ.
Wipers are super fish! Love it!
6'10" light action spinning rod with 8# braid and an 8# fluorocarbon leader. Caught on an 1/8-oz. jighead with a 4" shad body. We were fishing for walleye at the time, but this guy intervened. Caught a second one the same day that went 27."
nice ! ... what grade of tackle were you using to stop this train
There's a bicep-buster!
