Genetics testing confirms ‘Ivie hybrid, record still pending | outdoors

Genetic testing has confirmed that the 11.07-pound black bass caught on February 22 in Ohio’s Lake Ivie by Brady Stanford, of Midland, is an F1 hybrid of a smallmouth crossed bass with a largemouth bass. The DNA testing was performed at the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s Analytical Services Laboratory in San Marcos by Degar Lutz-Carrillo, TPWD geneticist and chief scientist.

The Stanford fish is the largest of its kind in the world. The fisherman has submitted an application to the International Game Fish Association for consideration as a new world record for the smallmouth/largemouth hybrid.
