Fishing solo before sunrise on the Ohio river casting Creek Chub Striper Stike 1900 lures to achieve distance w/ my casts, I was fortunate to catch two "In-fisherman award" hybrid striped bass. Water & weather conditions had given me very few mornings like this last Summer. I was very blessed to be able to catch & release two monster hybrids.
