Thanks guys. Weather report should be pretty warm this week.
So if it's too early for JRB where should I go for rocks this weekend? Keep in mind I only have hip waders, so I can only get out in a foot and a half of water with the occasional big wave.
3/4 oz. jigheads should be plenty of weight for the strongest tide at the JRB. I use some as light as 3/8 oz. most of the time. If you know how to rig it you can use two jigs at the same time. That would definately ensure enough weight at the height of the outgoing tide.
The tide starts moving first closest to shore. Sometimes that makes it the most active at the second light post, but sometimes the action is near the end.
Fished the JRB from 5-9 tonight, outgoing tide. I must be doing something wrong b/c I couldn't catch anything. There were lots of small, 8-12 inch fish on the surface. I fished all over the place but got hit by nothing big enough to swallow a lure. Only thing I can think of that I didn't try was a lot of bottom-dragging with a heavy lure. I also live-lined a perch for a couple hours.
There must have been 100 people come and go on the pier, did not see or hear of anyone catching a keeper.
