Looks like a flounder from pics but smooth skin and greenish tinge and going by the size it sounds very much like a dab. Great bass well done!!

Hi mike when you gutted it to eat was its guts a small section or run pretty much down the length of its body? If the length was a flounder if small a dab and dab are exceptionally good tasting fish!!
my wife did it and she eats flounders but sied this was a driffant taste and i had a mouth full of it and it did taste completly driffant to a flounder , so the verdict is ,, ITS A DAB

Thats a flounder Mike, if it was pinkish its a Brighton male flounder probably making its way along the coast looking for another male flounder, you know the score, they are called poofy flounders.:yucky:
Nice Bass though:thumbs:

Congratulation on the bass. I was out at Southwick same night and had a simlar experience with the weed except my bass never made it to the beach after throwing the hook about 5 yards out.

Well done on the lovely bass, sometimes its worth fishing through the weed- so good on you for perservering. The flattie looks like a flounder, the tail gives it away for me.
