FI 15feb18 smallFishing News | Tide Chart ... "Sea Bass” Fishing Report -- On Saturday, February 10th, we ran back out for sea bass again yesterday. No ice this time.

We have caught bluefin tuna in those conditions. We got to our wreck and it was loaded with sea bass. Conger eels were also prevalent. We did not catch a single dogfish. We caught our limit of sea bass with fish to over 5 pounds. (Read the Article) (Get the Tide Chart) (Have a Comment?)
