2010 seabass season

Rate this topic

22 posts in this topic

Well, the MA rec. seabass season kicked off yesterday.A fishing buddy keeps his boat at the wareham river and we left his slip at 0600 and we were fishing around cleveland's by 0630. Fishing was slow with mostly small, just legal sized fish being caught.There was about 25 boats out there fishing plus a couple of head boats. It did not seem that anyone was slamming them. In 3 hours we put about 20 fish in the box.They made for a great dinner last night and the neighbors are happy as well. I think they are one of the nicest eating fish there is. Sorry, no pics.......I left the bloody camera in the truck......

The best eating fish on the planet by far!clapping.gif IMO better than Chilean sea bass. I wish I could buy them in the markets, b/c I would just for a treat.

The frames also make excellent lobster bait too.wink.gif

Was using small metal jigs, bass is full of sand eels.

Went out of OCMD to the Jackspot. Lots of unders all day with only a half dozen barely legal ones to show for our efforts. Fishing right next to the best OCMD headboat and couldn't produce.

Glad some members posted sea bass pics.....checked my canal lobster gear today....the camera was in the wader pocket and I took a fall head first....I was O.K. but the camera.....oh boy...... Having a two day difference between a scup and a seabass opening shows how crazy fisheries management is getting in this state..........kooky.gif

i haven't been able to find any location to really successfully target them from shore. i think its more of a boat game. i've caught them before bottom fishing using squid, clam, seaworm, even crabs for bait. they'll also take a metal jig.
