Sea Bass Fishing
Location: Ocean City
Sea Bass season open up on Sunday and I went fishing out of Ocean City on a head boat for opening day. We ran for about two hours out to the reef and fished in 90 to 100 feet of water using squid for bait. The sea bass were cooperative and we also caught a few nice codfish. The male sea bass are all colored up in blue now and are quite pretty. We ended up the day with about ten large bass apiece. The head boats are running specials for sea bass fishing the next few weeks, and are a great way to fish for sea bass. Because of the current and wind it is sometimes necessary to double anchor to get right on the wrecks and our local captains are the best at it.
