    I'll second that! I once saw a guy standing in the river with waders on. I asked him if he was trying to drown. If you do decide to go make sure you only wear tennis shoes while wading the river. Huge holes in the New that have taken down lots of people.

    I've waded in Parrot. It's a great place with all kinds of ledges. Wear water shoes, swimming trunks, and a life jacket. Wading is fun so long as you know that each step should be a cautious one. You can easily hurt an ankle or get your foot caught if not careful.

    Hybrids are a cross between a White Bass and a Striper...

    Stripers and smallmouth bass cannot cross. Largemouth and smallmouth are actually in the sunfish family. We call them bass because they resemble stripers and white bass.

    Watching stripers or large hybrids smash shad on the surface is a very cool sight and sound though.
