    'Sea Bass' is a *******isation by supermarkets, probs led by our 'mercan cousins who have fresh water bass. We don't, ours live in the sea, simples, lol.

    Like Colin I get wound up by the 'sea bass' title.

    Cracking Bass there Colin, looks blooming tasty!

    Used to occasionally fish for them at Peterhead Power Station off the warm water outlet. Biggest I ever got was 3 1'2lb.
    ..........so many flies, so little time!

    Great stuff, b.

    Fished a bit for bass at the old Longannet outflow - mainly lug or rapala-type tho on one memorable occasion an early morninger on floater and a #12 Curry's Red double in amongst the bladderwrack - wee fish about a pound+. Well done on the fiver.

    Lovely fish. Takes me back to my childhood and youth spent south and west of you, when pursuing bass was my consuming passion.

    They are in fabulous condition. I haven't fished much for them in recent years.

    Always just Bass, Sea Bass is merely a way of telling the world you are an amateur.
