Good ol' father/son fishing trip
« on: May 06, 2019, 10:27:34 AM »
Hey folks, Jack and I got out to the lake over the weekend.  Had a darn good day.  Probably caught around 25 hybrid bass and 7 walleye.  Kept about half the bass and 5 of the walleye.  Here's a few pics

Jack with a hybrid



Jack with his big walleye of the day, just shy of 20 inches



We got into a double but the small one was just under the slot limit and had to go back.  Still fun though have two in the net at the same time!



Myself with a walleye, yes Jack had the big one of the day and was darn proud of it!



One full livewell, best problem a fisherman can have



Jack with the days catch before cleaning them



Parting pic of us headed in.  A good day for the books!



thanks for looking!

Yumm.  I can taste those all the way down here.  Great fishing trip.

Great photos and those bass are pretty interesting.  What kind of hybrid are they?  I mean a cross or what?

Thank you gents! 

Stan - The hybrids are a cross between a white bass(sand bass) and a Striper.  We call them Wipers as a slang term.  But they are called a hybrid bass by the game name.  they are fun to catch and when you find one you find a lot of them as they school and travel around.  Reminds me of ocean fishing for mackerel.  They aren't as good as walleye or crappie but they are good enough to eat they're worth the trouble if you like to eat fish.  There's no slot size or limit to how many you can keep, here in OK anyway.  They'll hit anything moving when they are in feeding frenzy mode.  Funnest way to catch them is chasing them around like stripers and waiting for the commotion of the surface feeding and just cast spoons or top water baits in there and hold on.

Where was Bel and when's the B&B Complimentary Invitational Fish Fry?  As I recall, she's a pretty serious angler, also.....nice haul, but you guys could have experienced a real 'gunwale-buster' if you'd had her along. :lol:

Thanks OE.  I thought there might be some Striper but the other I could not tell.

Thanks wolfy.  Bel and mom had a girls day out and Jack and I did the boys day out thing.  She's itching to go out so we'll make it happen pretty quick.  The fish fry is commencing shortly.  I will think of you all as I eat your shares ;)
