A science experiment gone right, the Wiper is well on its way to being the most popular game fish in the Central US! Let the celebrations start early with this one piece. A small member of the Percichthyida family (white bass) was crossed with a giant one (saltwater striped bass). The result: the Hybrid or Sunshine Bass more commonly known as the Wiper! They grow fast, but the average catch is 20 inches in length and 5 pounds. They strike hard and fight like no other fish in their habitat! Their populations are maintained by restocking. Anglers, rejoice!
Experiments don’t always end well. Frankenstein’s monster, anyone? But in the fishing world, we here at Gill McFinn’s celebrate when science can get it right. This fishing Romper is our tribute to the hybrid known as the Wiper! You may call it a Sunshine Bass or Hybrid Bass… we just call it a fish worth fighting for! Baiting, fly, trolling, drifting – it doesn’t matter. You can hit in a school of Wipers with many techniques, but be ready for battle! This fish won’t find its way to your wall or dinner plate without a fight!
