Other Names : Sea Bass, Black Bass, Rockfish, Black Sea Bass

Range & Habitat : Nearshore and offshore waters in the northeastern Gulf of Mexico, along the Florida coast to the waters off of Mobile Bay. The black sea bass is a bottomfish that prefers hard bottoms and structure.

Identification & Biology : This fish is black to dark grey in color with lighter shades on the scales, giving it a spotted appearance. The spots on the dorsal fin often fuse into stripes. The upper lobe of the tail fin is often extended into a streamer. They are eager biters and eat a wide variety of bottom creatures such as crabs, shrimp, worms, clams, and small fish. They are slow-growing fish, reaching only 15 inches in 8 years. Because of this, larger specimens are becoming uncommon. The black sea bass in the Gulf is considered to be separate subspecies from those on the Atlantic coast.

Size : To about 18 inches long, occasionally larger.

Food Value : Excellent.

Vlado, I went with another friend and the bluewater sucked. We ended up getting a few deepwater fish on the way in to get the stink off. I am ready to go hit up some bugs when we get a flat day. Nice aj yall got there.

Ronnie, I have to disagree; it's not a black sea bass. Still unidentified.

Buckwild...



We have been catching those fish pretty regularly at the rigs near the steps. Around 400' deep. That is exactly the fish we have been catching. Does the area sound familiar? We don't catch a lot of them but one or two per trip. We asked around and that was the answer we got. That picture does not look exactly like the fish but that is what the fish scientist told us it was...

John,

Ventured in the blue water last Sunday off Destin and it was pretty lame. One dolphin and a couple of chicken dolphins on the way in. Vlado

Give me a sec.



OK, so what we seem to have is a blackbar drum, Equestus iwanotoi. Yes, it's in the croaker family, Sciaenidae, and is a relative of other drums and seatrout. This is a fish of the outer shelf (aka where you caught it) and is found from North Carolina to Brazil.

Found this on the net. It looks very similar. Called a Spot. It says found in at least 200 ft of water and is a member of the drum family. Here is the link. Sorry the hyper link won't work.

What makes you think they were cleaning the fish at sea? Been out with BuckWild a few times and he goes strictly by the book. In answer to your question - No, unless "on the water" is on a dock.
