I use golden seabass snelled hooks size 2 with some clams they love frah clams out of the shell and never forget it all about having fun i appreciate all the fishermans and fisherwomans out there and if you dont catch any thing then keep trying because they will bite. oo and the season for seabass is spring and summer talk later bye.

FISH BITES!!!!!! use the inshore chunks!! even if u go offshore on wrecks. either squid, or shrimp! but squid works best. they are GREAT!!!!!!!!! my godness, we filled a VERY large (ann marie fahey) cooler, just the 4 of us and a few bags of fishbites inshore chunks squid flavored, of black sea bass..and a snook, and a great many sharks, also we caught a flounder that spit the hook at the surface. but all we did was set it in freespool, and didnt even worry about the bait. it will last for many fish!
