Default Sea Bass

Would someone be willing to share information on what bait to use for catching sea bass and rock fisk from the bank or jetty? Planning to go out this spring for surf perch at Canon Beach and Tillamook area, and would like to try these new fishs as well.

thanks..

sandshrimp, clams, octopus, squid, all work well...

if you have a pump, pumping your own sandshrimp is the easiest.

or if you like artif baits, a white jig will work for sea bass.

drifting sandshrimp on the outgoing tide will work for seabass and most species. kelp worms will work for surf perch and will stay on the hook longer than than sandshrimp...

You might get a better idea if you jumped over to the Salty Dogs.

If, by Sea Bass, you mean black rockfish, lures work much better than bait...jig and plastic grub is kind of the standard, but lots of things will work, including wobbling spoons fished very slowly.

We use the Berkely weighted plastic shad baits about 4 inches long. Mainly in silver shad, blue shad or white.

We fish them with no weight sometimes when the fish are not right on the bottom. If you want them on the bottom use a sliding weight hooked to you mainline and you will not hang up as much on the rocky stuff.

We kill em on these things.
