Former Duke basketball star Seth Curry of Charlotte caught a 7 1/2-pound hybrid on May 8 at Lake Norman.

Unofficially, it's the largest of the fish, a striper/white bass cross, caught at Lake Norman. The fish were first secretly stocked against regulations a few years ago by a group of Iredell County fishermen. Now, the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission is releasing 160,000 hybrid fingerlings into Lake Norman annually.

Seth was fishing in the lake's Reed Creek section with his father Dell Curry, an original member of the Charlotte Hornets, and guide Craig Price of Denver, N.C.

They also caught largemouth bass, catfish and white perch.
