We left Eagle Point at 4:30am and made the long trek to the jetties and we had the place to ourselves:eek: water temp at 6:00 was about 56deg.We started fishing on the north jetties and first bite was a tourist trout:(.We anchor up and head to the end of the south jetties and anchor up on the beach side of the jetties and wait!About 15 to 20 minutes the boat due south to use hooks up with a nice bull red.:cool:I start catch ing bait(croaker)lol.On the channelside of the south jetties some boat pulls up and started hammering what looked like tripletails:(:cool:I'm still catching croaker fora future trip:cool:!Then all hell breaks loose a armada of potlicker's show up in everykind of watercraft imaginable! There was even some dude in a bass boat:eek:.Btw most of these people weren't even nice enough to slowww DOWN...not all.While all this was still happening the guys the guys that caught a bull red baged another one and the tripletail rodeo was still going on and the potlicker were even getting thicker!TheN the USSTEXSUN2 came at full speed into the mix:mad::mad::mad: Throwing a massive wake:mad::mad:in to set the anchor!This guy needs to be reported very bad manners for a Captian!We i mean I am still catching croaker the Dave hooks up with his favorite trout:DHe's like lets ease out of this parking lot.

The Doofi Flotilla is to be expected out there on weekends. :ack2:

They were there in full force.......i guess i was expecting some but not so close to each other.some A-hole cut between us and the jettie at least doing 25mph.....when he could have eased in there.....He did ease out of there when he left.it must have been all the finger's our long stares from boaters on both sides of the south jetty.

The Jetties are a zoo. You can see it all out there. I would never go out there on a weekend or holiday.

That place is a mad-house on the weekend. Sometimes it's fun to just sit and watch the stupidity.. ( if you can keep from getting washed overboard).

Was at S. Jetty Saturday at noon-3 boats on inside, about 10 on outside-no aholes I saw. We had to leave after 2 hits (missed em-circle hooks-don't set them) and 15 minutes out there. Other brother called, dad had apparent heart attack again, and was being ambulanced to UTMB, so we hauled back to Jam Beach and then to UTMB-he's OK, still there, but doing alright for 87 and heart problems. Noticed the boat cut was packed (as usual), but rarely fish it due to idjits/crowds. North Jetty looked crowded also all the way to end.

Wasn't bad for 15 minutes of fishing.
