Fishing Quote: Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. Chinese proverb. 

Description: The body of the barred sand bass is rather elongate and compressed. The mouth is large and the lower jaw protrudes slightly. The color is gray white on the back, white on the belly and there are dark vertical bars on the sides. Barred sand bass can be easily distinguished from kelp bass by the height of the third dorsal spine. In barred sand bass, this spine is the longest of the dorsal spines, while in the kelp bass, the third, fourth and fifth dorsal spines are of about equal length. Barred sand bass can be distinguished from spotted sand bass by the lack of spots on the body.

Range: Barred sand bass occur from Magdalena Bay, Baja California, to Santa Cruz, California. This species occurs from shallow water to depths of 600 feet; however, most fish are taken in 60 to 90 feet of water. 

Natural History: The barred sand bass diet includes crabs, octopus, squid, and small fishes. The adults aggregate and spawn during warmer months. The eggs are free floating. The striped young appear in southern California near shore areas and eelgrass beds during fall and winter. 

Fishing Information: Most barred sand bass landed in California are taken between May and October. They are fished in three main areas: Horseshoe Kelp to Newport Beach, Dana Point to Oceanside and the Silver Strand off San Diego. The best method for catching barred sand bass is to search a sandy area with an echo sounder until a school is located. The boat then can be anchored and fishing commenced with live anchovies. Barred sand bass will usually "build" or gather under the boat when chummed so it pays to wait for awhile before moving. 

Other Common Names: sand bass, sandy, ground bass, sugar bass, kelp bass, California sand bass, rock bass. 

Largest Recorded: 26 inches; 11.1 pounds. 

Habitat: Shallow Sandy Environment 

Fishing Quote: You never saw a fish on the wall with its mouth shut. -- Sally Berger, Women's Quotation Stack
