    What eye should be used for a sand bass! (caught off coast of California) I can't find one listed or any reference worth a flip! Thanks

    Something Orange. To get the right pupil shape I would use a Lumsden Lens.

    There are 2 species of sand bass, the barred sand bass and the spotted sand bass.
