Striped Bass is usually caught in the salt water in the Northeast. They do spawn in brackish estuaries and are often caught there but I am unaware that they are caught in fresh water ponds. They can grow to about 60 pounds.

******************************************
I believe they are just called ‘stripers’ down here. Lots of them in fresh water, as they were introduced to Lake Texhoma years ago. The lake is between Oklahoma and Texas and is very large. .........The striper is a hybrid fish and grows to about the size you mentioned, but if I’m wrong I welcome any correction.
