These sea bass have some weight to them and we were very succesful on the water today.

We succesfully used a chartruese bucktail jig while rip-jigging on the bottom to produce a couple decent size seabass of atleast 6 pounds

A Green Mackerel Viper Spoon baited with squid using a 3-way swivel about 2 feet off the bottom produced a small saltwater black sea bass

A Gold Viper Spoon baited with squid strip using a 3-way swivel 2 feet off the bottom produced another small black sea bass

2 hooks baited with cut squid fishing on the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean produced a double header.

At the same time, a silver Viper Spoon baited with a whole squid using a 3 way swivel 2 feet off the bottom caught a solid 5.5 pound black sea bass with a slight blue tinge

Although straight cut bait does great at catching fish, Viper Spoons seem to catch bigger fish than straight cut bait when used against eachother.

A chartreuse Viper Spoon baited with squid was used while fishing suspended and produced another seabass

A Jigging Spoon with crippled herring doing some vertical jigging 1 foot off the bottom of the ocean produced a saltwater black sea bass pushing 7 pounds.

“hopping” a Gray Shad along the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean also caught a seabass.

  1. never seen so many big sea bass…if i catch them in the Long Island, NY area they're never more than 2 pounds….rarely catch any of good size, but then again im never targeting them

  2. Great tasting fish, caught some this past weekend. I like to flour them, dip in milk and coat both sides of the fillet in crushed potato chips then cooked on a cast iron skillet. That was my lunch today. Nice vid.

  3. I dont think i could go for seabass this year because my dad is not putting our boat in the water. NJ was hit hard by "Sandy" and alot of stuff is floating in the water. But in August my dad, me, my cousin, and my best friend are renting a charter boat to go for massive bluefish.I'll keep you posted.

  4. Hi, its Dan again. Sorry i could not get to you in a while i was mostly fishing in my back yard and finishing school for the summer. Very nice seabass. You seem to be a spectaular fisherman and so are your friends. Good luck fishing.

  5. black sea bass ! what a great fish. Of course a great mystery reveals itself. What is this tootog fish? I've never heard of that one ! How about a tautog? Is the tootog related? maybe a bergall?

  6. When fishing for sea bass, it is best to fish near the bottom, so weights would be better than floaters. You can jig off the bottom with a regular jig head or bucktail jig – or – you can jig using a boa jig'r with bait which works fantastic for sea bass. Another great option is to use the T-Turn and go down about 1 – 2 feet to a sinker and then 2 to 2 1/2 feet to a viper spoon rigged with squid or cut bait or artificial bait…either way, you can't go wrong ๐Ÿ™‚
