Winter Offshore Sea Bass
Well, that's what it seemed like. It was 27 degrees when we left the house and all the puddles were frozen solid. At the boat it was warmer but the stiff NW wind continued and gave it a winter feel. We headed offshore and fished in 100 to 140 foot depths looking for the big stuff. Lots of porgies and sea bass on the wrecks from tiny pins to true offshore jumbos of the biggest kind. There are so many sea bass around that you have to fish thru the shorts that would not normally be offshore to get to the keepers. Tim and I filleted all the way to the dock. The only down side was the arrival of the dogfish. Summer's over.
