What’s the best way to catch sea bass?

Catching sea bass is similar to fishing for largemouth bass in many ways in that the size of the average fish is pretty similar and the techniques used are roughly the same. However, there are also great differences because the sea bass, like every species of bass, has its own little quirks and mannerisms that affect just how you can catch them. Although some bass fishing enthusiasts enjoy success no matter what species of bass they go after, the chances are that you will not because those numbers are few and far between. For starters, sea bass cannot be found in the same areas as largemouth because their habits are completely different. They are found in saltwater and generally congregate around sheltered areas such as piers and bridges. However, they can also be found in areas featuring vegetation and ledges or pools. In terms of the lures you need to use, you are best to choose a weedless lure such as a plastic worm. Many people that go out to catch sea bass rave about the worm because of its high success rate. Some techniques are also better than others if you are trying to catch sea bass. The three recommended ones are tolling, anchoring and drifting. However, you should take the time to find something that works for you above everything else. If you are not comfortable then the bass will not bite. It will only take half a day when the action is good to try those three out so it is well worth it.
