I would like to thank everyone for looking at my fish and your comments. To answer a few questions, no I didnt catch anything else that was the one and only bite. Yes he fought pretty good but didnt take much time to land him with the cat gear I was using, just pulled him up and hand lined him in the boat, no net necessary. I was using circles though, thank god, because my back was turned when he hit. I thought it was a cat until I saw the shape of the head then I didnt know, my first hybrid or striper. However I was not skunked.lol Fixing to fry him up now. Thanks again.
