Head Offshore for Black Sea Bass
Location: Ocean City
Itís time to head offshore and catch Black Sea Bass. They are deep, around a hundred foot or more so a run of about 25 to 35 miles is in order to catch them. Fishing has been outstanding with nice sized fish. My preference is to go on a head boat but you could go on a smaller boat if: you donít mind getting beat up, like to set and pull anchors, or want to see if that survival suit really works. I am hoping it stays warm and we get sea bass through Thanksgiving and well towards Christmas.
There are also some tog inshore, plenty actually. There are a lot of smalls, but you have to have acorns to get oaks. There are also lots of lobsters in the area where we are sea bass fishing. One head boat actually landed two big lobsters on hook and line this weekend.
