Yea I fish for them over the summer at night there, but always with bait. They love chicken livers and sometimes we troll with alewives (sp) that we catch before hand.

I wonder if he was fishing from shore or was also in a boat? My friend who fishes the Raystown for stripers , he's caught 20 and 30 pounders , fishes from shore most of the time. He does have a boat but we go to an area and then get out and fish from shore. I think he has better luck landing them from shore. He uses the boat to find a thermocline area and then beaches and fishes mostly at night.

FYI -- I believe those are hybrid striped bass. Notice the broken lateral lines behind the pec fin, a sure sign. Since hybrids don't reproduce, they were stocked.

I'd respectfully beg to differ. Broken "stripes" are common in purebred striped bass. These guys definitely look like stripers rather than hybrids to me - hybrids tend to be much thicker bodied. Juvenile striped bass are very common in the Delaware River. It's possible they're hybrids if hybrids are stocked in this river - but I'd bet money they're pure stripers.

I think we determined in the original thread that they were actual striped bass, but I could be wrong on that. I have read that a real striped bass can have broken stripes, as long as they are mostly continuous. The body is not as stocky as a hybrid, IMO. I am unaware of a hybrid program on the D, but I would guess that would answer our question.

I never knew that, but here's where I got my info... it mentions that in true stripers, the lines are not broken.

www.anglersfishinginfo.com/articles/fishident/bass.htm

Here's an ID from the IGFA. No mention of possible broken lines.

http://www.igfa.org/species/91-bass-striped.aspx


Still looking to see if I can find some reference to pure stripers having broken lines...
