A new lake record was set at Lake Hefner for Striped Bass when Clidell Woody caught this 16.1 pounder on March 18th. The old record was 14.8 pounds set by Glen Burling in 2010.
Clidell caught it on the west side of Hefner near the spillway. He was fishing for catfish using cut shad.
Hybrids arrive in Lake Hefner via the North Canadian River from Canton Lake.
Striped bass hybrids are a hatchery-raised cross between stripers and white bass and are favorites with fishermen because they are fierce fighters.
