Sea bass can be used to describe a huge number of fish. Black sea bass white sea bass etc. Be a little more specific as to what kind of seabass and where you're fishing.

Assuming your talking about Black Sea bass a long strip of squid is your best choice. Black sea bass love squid. Black sea bass are shallow and deep so rod length does not matter IMO.

Rod length: anything longer then a 6'5foot rod MH

Line: 15-20lb

Fish during high-tide and to prevent your rig from washing up to shore use a pyramid weight so your rig wont move. Once its dead low-tide take a break. Not saying you wont catch Black Sea bass during low-tide but you will catch more Sand Sharks and Skates and there not the funnest things to remove a hook from/ (Sand sharks slap and skates can stab you)

Zeppy,

  I live (fish) in Port St.Lucie/Jensen Beach during the Winter.  If I want Black Sea Bass, I go out over the deeper (100ft, or so) reefs/ledges.  If you want to fish from the beach, you have 2 choices...short or long.  Short is RIGHT off the breaker line...I mean RIGHT off.  When the waves wash back in and collide with the incoming waves, the turbulance creates a trench.  This trench is usually loaded with Whitting, Pompano, Snook, depending on the weather/time of year.  I use medium spinning tackle for this.  The other area is as for out as you can cast, using a 12-14 foot pole.  This is where everything else lives...Macs, Blues, Sharks, Kings, etc....depending on the weather/time of year.   Try to get to the beach for the incoming/high tide...
