Cape Cod Sea Bass rival walleye

Recommended Posts

Took a break from the walleyes to visit my brother for the Black Sea bass opener and wasn't disappointed. We had are 3 person limit in 1 1/2 hours plus a nice tatog. Conditions were rough with the tide and the wind but we did great. They rival any fish as table fair!IMG_3880.thumb.JPG.51c4fceb509cd8ec018330933e4690e9.JPG

I'm jealous, nice catch of sea bass and tautog, both are great eating and fun to catch on lighter tackle if you aren't fishing around a wreck or other snags.  I'm heading out there in the fall for stripers and false albacore, hopefully the timing is right for both and the seals don't chase them out like previous years.  Did you go out alone or on a charter?  I haven't been able to find a charter to take the kids out yet that doesn't cost hundreds of dollars for a 3 or 4 hour trip.

Fishing off my brothers 17' Whaler. Only have to run about a half mile from his mooring to a rock pile off the old canal. Catching them on medium spinning rods using jigs and plastic and yes they can pull.

Fished again today and the bite had slowed but we still caught 8 sea bass, 1 tautog, and some scup. Will try again in the morning.

Kevin, myself and a couple buddies traveled 2 hrs to Buzzards Bay in my boat and put a good whack in the Black SeaBass, our original intent was to fish offshore on Jeffries ledge but the marine forecast told us to pick a plan B. We had our BSB limit in a few hours and spent the remaining time targeting scup till it got sporty out there. Cant wait get out there again

They often hit best on an outgoing tide. My father and his friends have had a great season so far. Great fun and great eating!

Looks like a blast, Kevin. Well done. The north east Atlantic offers so many great sport and eating fish. Headed to mid-coast Maine in July for a family vacation.....plan on fishing as much as the wife will allow. Cant wait!!
