Match the Hatch for Hybrid Striped Bass

Matching the hatch is always good practice while chasing gamefish. Professional bass fisherman Mark Daniels Jr. and Z-Man’s Ryan Harder have a blast while smashing Hybrid Stripers on the shad imitating Z-Man TRD MinnowZ. This versatile bait had them landing fish on every cast without having to re-rig their plastic, keeping the school firing for quite a while. As anglers, we know that being efficient boats more fish. So keeping your baits in the water and not fooling with re-rigging on every missed bite helps, especially when dealing with schooling fish.
