My first Big Hybrid

My first Big Hybrid
25.20 inch Hybrid Striped Bass

Natthavipa Huttemeyer

Budd Lake New Jersey



I was trolling flies with my husband Arthur with his newly installed Deck Arm jigging machine. We hit a school of Hybrids and the action was non stop for hours. This was my biggest fish of the day and just went over by .20 for a $100.00 first prize win in a 25 inch slot tourney we had entered. What a blast catching these fish they are so strong and just go ballistic when they see the boat.
