    Keepers were 17-20inches.

    beautiful fish. Do the blueish ones have blue flesh?

    White flesh. Big males get blueish and knots on their heads. Females stay brown. From what I've read they start as females and then at some point get darker colored and eventually blueish coloration.

    Ok, I wasn't sure if they were like the blue lingcod. I've only caught small ones on the kayak and went on one deep drop trip a few years ago where we loaded up on seabass up to 4 lbs, but dont remember them looking blue.

    I'm not sure if maybe they get more blue during the spawn or if it is something different about the northern versions. I used to fish some wrecks short of B buoy off Indian River Inlet and every once in a while one would be blueish, but not nearly as dramatic.

    Massachusetts. Just south of the Bourne Bridge and canal. seabass come in to spawn. Otherwise it's a long paddle to get anything other than small fish. Most people just keep the males, so that the females can drop their eggs with the assumption that you don't need as many males to do the job. The males are that cool blue color. Females are brown.

    Was out there a few times myself recently. Caught a bunch of sea bass and a couple fluke. Mostly just above keeper size and females, but I managed to land some real nice low to mid 20s fish.
