Seabass Opener

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Went out on a friends boat for the Seabass opener. It was a a little snotty in the morning but it settled down around 11. We were only keeping 13.5 inch fish and got our 3 man limit before 12. We threw back 2 more limits before we switched over to jigging some Stripers. Great Day !

Love it, congrats.

I am tempted to go out on my boat on Friday. How far off did you have to go for the sea bass if you don't mind me asking?

We were about 5-6 miles out 55 ft of water. Water out there was in great shape clean and clear.

One more question, drift?

Thanks in advance.

We started drifting but ended up anchoring which was the key for us.

Awesome Mike! Did you use the new reel?

I ended up ordering the new HD 300 after I received the 400 which had the old brass style gears. It was great very light setup and handled 8- 10 oz while we were drifting. 

The newer Lexa’s have stainless gears and non corrosive bearings . HD is the newer model.
