Hybrid stripers in a pond


G-man

Recommended Posts

Has anyone stocked  hybrid striped bass in their  pond?   Giving serious consideration to this.  I know they can reproduce but have low success rate  ..but people raise them to sell  so  they must reproduce.   

I've seen stocking rates from 100 to as high as  200 to an acre .  Recommendations?

Genetically sterile, so they cannot reproduce. That is one argument for stocking them, they can’t spread in numbers. Wipers are they are frequently called are a schooling fish. They prefer open water. And they require a lot of forage such as golden shiners. My question for you is pond size, depth and the amount of vegetation in it?

I should amend my statement that they are completely sterile. They can theoretically reproduce in small numbers, but it is highly unusual for successful spawning. 99.99% will come from man-manipulated spawning in a hatchery environment.

If you have a pond with little structure, hybrid stripers will do great in it. Hybrid stripers, unlike many hybrids, do remain fertile and have the capacity to reproduce. With that being said, however, any reproduction would be very limited and often will not reproduce successfully in your pond. This is what I got from hatchery I would buy from

That’s a fairly large pond as ponds go. If it has ample open water, they should do well. They fight at least twice as hard as a largemouth bass of comparable size. Just make sure they have ample forage.  They do best with larger forage like Shad, but fatheads and/or golden shiners are both good for that. They will also devour any young fish like bass, sunfish, crappy, etc. Not sure what else you have in there.

I saw the title quick and thought I read Hybrid Strippers 😂.  

Crap, can they come up with one "title" and stick with it already!  Tranny, now hybrid...

But I'm a little confused on why you would even click on a thread with that title. :rofl:
