Seabass Specifications

Size: Most common at under a pound, but can reach up to about 4 pounds if a the rare lunker is landed.

Baits: Shrimp / Baitfish / Crab / Lure Tackle: Spinning / Baitcasting

The Black Seabass is characterized by a deep grey to pewter with occasionally browning body with lighter spots, which reverse pattern along his large fan tail. S piked first dorsal blends into a finer fanned second seemlessly. A large mouth and red oval eye make up his front end.

These fish are found in depper areas on the flats all the way to offshore in hard bottomed, or strucured and rocky bottoms.

Live shrimp with dead baifish and cut baits are the best naturla baits, while jigs and plugs make for the best artificial bait.
