 Drifting live bait catches big hybrids

Since they were introduced to Oklahoma reservoirs beginning in 1977, hybrid striped bass have become a favorite sport fish of a growing number of anglers, particularly those who know how to drift fish from boats. In many hybrid lakes, drifting live bait such as shad, minnows, gold fish or small sunfish has become the preferred method for catching the hard fighting brutes. Hybrid striped bass are cultured in state fish hatcheries by crossbreeding male white bass with female striped bass. The resulting offspring are best known for their rapid growth and hard-fighting ability. They can attain weights of six to seven pounds by three years of age and 18 to 20 pounds by eight to nine years of age. "Hybrids are a valuable put, grow and take sport fish in lakes with large shad populations but with marginal habitat for striped bass and white bass," said Kim Erickson, chief of fisheries for the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation. "Lakes like Konawa, Altus-Lugert, Canton and Waurika are quietly gaining a reputation for outstanding hybrid angling at certain times of year." Paul Hollister caught the current state record hybrid in 1997 from Altus-Lugert Lake. The big fish weighed 23 pounds, 4 ounces. Other lakes stocked with hybrids include Optima, Ft. Supply, Tom Steed, Overholser, Grand, Heyburn, Atoka, Ft. Cobb, Salt Plains, and Ellsworth. Drift fishing with live bait is going to be covered in an upcoming episode of "Outdoor Oklahoma" on OETA-The Oklahoma Network Sunday, February 10 at 8:00 a.m. Husband and wife team Terry and Sheila Crissman fished late last spring on Waurika Lake and caught several bragging sized hybrids. Anglers with Internet access can get a sneak preview of the Crissmans' biggest hybrid photos by logging onto: http://www.simplynet.net/tcrissman

May 18th...May fishing is always good, however, this year is proving to be superlative.  Limits are coming very early.  This morning my clients caught fish from 2 to 9 lbs.  The fish are being found on ledges ranging from 25 to 40 feet of water.  Threadfin shad is the bait of choice, however, live shiners should work well also.  Personally, I am rigging with #4 kahle hooks, 2 ounce sinkers and relatively light leader lines, 12-14 lb test.  Submitted by Doc Walker, 877-664-2208.

May 5. Elevation normal, water 64 and clear. Black bass good on spinnerbaits at 5-10 ft. around structure. Striped bass good on live shad at 15-20 ft. in platter Flats. Channel catfish good on cut bait at 5-10 ft. on Washita River. Crappie good on minnows at 5-10 ft. in Widow Moore Creek. Report submitted by Danny Clubb, Marshall County Game Warden

April 7. Black bass good on plastic baits at 5-10 ft. around structure. White and striped bass good on sassy shad at 5-10 ft. around points. Hybrid striped bass good on sassy shad at 10-15 ft. around points. Catfish good on curt bait at 5-10 ft. in Washita River. Crappie good on minnows at 15 ft. around brush piles. Report submitted by Danny Clubb, Marshall County Game Warden.

April 2.  Elevation 3 ft. below normal, water 52 and clear. Stripers good on live shad, sassy shad, storm's wild eye swim baits, coho minnows and ghost minnow slabs in the back of marinas and on the flats just off the river channels.  Find a school of shad and fish your lure under the shad as close to the bottom as possible without hanging up. When using the Ghost Minnow Slab, drop it to the bottom and barely twitch the end of your rod tip. Largemouth bass are fair to good on crankbaits, rouges, flukes, soft plastics and spinnerbait in shallow water. Report submitted by Tinker's Striper Guide Service.

 Water: Elevation 1 ft. below normal, water 44 and clear

Stripers: The prospect for a bumper harvest is in store for fall and winter fishing on Lake Texoma. It is about 8:00 AM Friday and the guides have already called in with reports of limits caught this morning. The rest of the trip will just be catch and release Fishing is good on topwaters and slab fishing. Surfacing stripers are feeding from the dam to the islands early. Most of the surfacing silversides are small. Finding a school of larger top feeding stripers is very exciting. Sometimes the larger fish will knock your topwater lure eight to ten feet out of the water and strike it again when it hits the water. Several twenty inch+ stripers are being caught with slabs on flats just off the river channels under the smaller fish feeding above them. The best topwater lures are Zara Spooks, Pencil Poppers and Striper Swipers. After the fish are run down by the boats, tie on an ounce and a half or two ounce Sooner slab. The better colors have been green and white or chartreuse and white with a red dot. Fair on liver and shad, surface to 10 ft. at Platter Flats.

Black Bass: fair on spinnerbaits, surface to 5 ft. around structures

Sand Bass: fair on sassy shad, surface to 10 ft. around creeks.

Crappie: fair on minnows, 10-15 ft. in Widow Moore creek

Catfish: and blue catfish good on cut bait, 5-10 ft. on Washita River..
