    Default Hybrids depth


    I'm just trying to learn this fish. I assume that during the day(summer), the fish are near the bottom in deep water. Correct?

    Correct. Due to remodeling the house I haven't been able to go much since spring. Hopefully, that'll get better soon and my first trip will be in deep water with herring about 2 cranks off the bottom. Typically that works well from mid July- mid September. Always be on the lookout for some schooling activity as an overcast day can wake up the topwater action. Also, early mornings and late afternoons you should find some hybrids feeding on midlake humps. If you find that, it's gonna be fast and furious.

    Let us know how you're doing, since I can't go now, the reports keep the excitement level up.
    Look up boone boys on youtube. He does a good job of explaining how and why he fishes the way he does.

    Another consideration for the Summer is the thermocline. The Stripers can't be below it or they'll die from lack of oxygen. In the deep south, some lakes have oxygen lines installed to prevent the "fish kills" associated with this issue. I had some pictures of what that looks like on a graph. If I can find em, I'll share. There's a spot on Clarks Hill (where I normally fish) that's very good in late summer until the thermocline makes it uninhabitable for the stripers. When that happens, they go to the upper and lower ends of the lake to find more dissolved oxygen in the water.
