Thanks for replying. I’m familiar with Jettie fishing. I’m looking for blues and false albacore for bait to throw heavier at sharks. I figure I’m only going to have from about 6 to 8am if I’m lucky. If I get entertained with other fish I’m fine with it.I just realized some folks might not know what a "jetty" is.
So basically get onto the beach, you might have to pay a fee, or they might tell you fishing is only before 8 AM and after 5 PM or something like that. Look out onto the surf and you will find piles of rocks that jut out into the surf. The rock piles are jetties.
Don't go on them if they are so broken up that they are cut off from the beach. You want to find one that you can just walk onto with your fishing gear.
Also wear good gripping athletic shoes as some of the rocks may be slippery. BE CAREFUL!!
You may see lobsters in the rocks. Pay no attention to them, they'll just get you into trouble. Be constantly aware of the crashing waves.
Or just cast onto the surf.
You can get flounder, bluefish, false albacore, tuatog, blackfish, and the occasional mackerel from jetty fishing.
If you live up that way invest in some waders, plugs, and lost of lost sleep and starting as early as march (weather/water dependent) you can bang some big bass up the RB.I was over at the Inlet there this past weekend. Incoming tide the Army Corps of Engineers were dredging the mouth of the inlet - NOT GOOD FOR FISHING!
I was casting a sabiki rig, hoping to hook some herring, but instead lost my rig on the a snag in the rocks after an hour of casting.
