    I went out today on the Ohio river and caught an 8 lb hybrid striper on my 6 lb sauger setup, its the biggest hybrid I have caught and it was a flippin' blast!! man can they fight, I never thought I was gonna get it to the boat. I will definately be targeting these guys in the future. Just to give you an idea of size, the hatch the fish is on is almost 30" long.

    Thanks for the photo and report, Bill, great job on 6 lb. test line. I have trouble enough getting them in on 17 lb. test.

    I went below ky lake yesterday to do some Sauger fishin well the Sauger didn't bite but the stripers did !I ended up catchin 8 stripers avg around 5-6 pnds and a white bass about a pnd and the biggest suprise was a blue cat caught on a 11/2 oz hair jig.
    I caught most of em in the last 2 hrs fishin and had a blast.
