Gear & Tackle | Buzzards Bay Black Sea Bass | S18 E2

In Buzzards Bay, black bass spawn from late May to June. The big bass attracted on Sunday are the best for spawning. They feed on fish and shellfish and any jigs that cross their path.

That’s exactly what Chris Megan and I found when we were filming an episode of Adventures on the Water in early June. The bass were abundant and everywhere we tried, we found fish willing to cooperate.

If you’re fishing for bass in shallow water like Buzzards Bay, I recommend downsizing your gear to have double the fun. The ferocious strike of a 4-pound bass eating a jig and the pretzel of a medium-action rod are a treat for anglers of all ages and experience levels.

Even with light tackle, I like to use big, bulky jigs to attract the bigger bass and avoid the smaller, smaller fish. Sea bass, however, regardless of their size, have a voracious appetite and eyes larger than their stomachs.
