Maybe you love fishing, but patience isn’t exactly your biggest virtue. Or your kids’.

That’s okay, though, because the Lord created  black sea bass.

When it’s good, you can catch them with Slim Jims, tin foil, or bare hooks. You can fill the box with 12- to 18-inchers in half a day, hooking fish again and again within seconds of your bait hitting bottom. For much of the sea bass season, this is business as usual.

But it isn’t always stupid easy. Different wrecks produce differently throughout the season, and the same spot that was a honey hole in May might only have throw backs by July. You may have felt this first hand if you ever took a trip on a slow boat that could only reach the nearshore wrecks.  It can be a painfully slow bite on a very crowded boat full of disappointed anglers.

On the Fin Chaser, we know that day might call for a different kind of bait, or drift, or rig. It can become just as tactical as fishing for marlin or tuna, and we take our sea bass fishing every bit as seriously as our more expensive offshore trips.

So if you’re looking to try for your limit of keep sea bass, don’t bank on perfect conditions and a red-hot bite. Go with a captain who can leverage more than 35 years of Ocean City, Maryland sea bass fishing experience to put you on the fish—no matter what conditions call for.

Keep in mind that anglers on our private sea bass trips often catch a lot more than just sea bass: flounder and tautog (tog or blackfish) are also commonly caught while fishing for sea bass—and they all taste better than anything you’ve eaten in a restaurant. We’re always ready with a variety of rigs and bait onboard incase you decide you’d rather target flounder or wrestle with some springtime or fall tautog.

We offer sea bass trips that fit almost any budget, and there’s not much better than filling a cooler with dozens of tasty sea bass. Book now, prime season fills very early.
