John Tibbs is the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s Inland Fisheries District 2B Supervisor and, lucky for we anglers here in Central Texas, he is also an avid fisherman and a longtime proponent of the implementation and improvement of the hybrid striped bass stocking program.

As the name implies, hybrid striped bass are a cross between two distinct, but closely related species, the white bass and the striped bass. As with many hybridized animals, hybrid striped bass are considered sterile so an ongoing hybrid fishery counts on an ongoing hybrid stocking program.
