    They are two different kinds of fish. The hybrids are a cross between striped bass and white bass. White bass are smaller than stripe and the stripes on white bass aren't as distinct.

        We call the hybrids "wipers" in Ohio.

          Striper's are also an ocean fish that comes to fresh water to spawn(coast's only). They have been stocked in fresh water.
          We had the world record here in Ark.(now it #2 in the world) 64lb/8oz.
          Whites don't get much bigger than 3 lbs.
          "White bass- Horizontal stripes less distinct on bottom half of fish,Teeth in a single patch on back of tongue,Deep body.
          Striped Bass- Teeth in two parallell patches on back of tongue.Slender body, 20lb common.First horizontal stripe below lateral line is distinct and complete to tail.(Ark. Game and fish reg book)
