Rabun Hybrid Bass Breaks Lake Record

GON Staff | May 29, 2009

A new lake-record hybrid mark was set on April 20, 2009 when Steve Jones, of Lakemount, reeled in a 9-lb., 8-oz. hybrid bass from Lake Rabun.

Hybrid bass are a hatchery-made cross between white bass and striped bass. Hybrids are more warm-water tolerant and do much better than stripers in reservoirs that don’t have cold-water sanctuaries.

Lake Rabun is a small, 835-acre reservoir on the Tallulah River in the mountains of Rabun County.
