St. John’s River Hybrid Striper on Fly Rod

I caught this 24″/ @10 lbs Hybrid Striper/Sunshine Bass in St. John’s River.

We started our day on the St. John’s River looking for shad, but they were scarce, so tried a spot where I’d found hybrid striper’s in years past. We ended up landing several nice hybrids, including my girlfriend Kelly catching her first 2 stripers ever! I caught this one on a yellow and red clouser pattern, and it made several long runs before we landed it.
