Depending on the length of the long antenna, it may not need a ground plane. If it's a 1/2λ (or other ground plane independent design) and your stubby is 1/4λ, then with an imperfect ground plane that would explain why your SWR readings are like they are.

I'm with Marco on it though, I always run my 5/8λ whip on the interstate, and I run my 1/4λ dual band around town.
