    Default how do you fish the jetties??

    Im mainly a artificial 1ft-5ft water depth.inshore.surf fisherman. Just got my boat up and running and don't really know what to do?

    Do you anchor, drop a mullet on a weighted line and wait?

    free shrimp against the rocks, or all the way down on the bottom the when you anchor make sure you leave your motor running the whole time until your anchor is caught in case it doesn't catch or you will go right into the rocks, good luck !

    That will work too. Shrimp will get more numbers of fish, and I think it's better in late spring when the sheepies are thick, and the trout are just starting to show.

    Another technique I like is a slip cork with the bait just above the rocks. Cast up-current, and let the bait drift along the rocks.

    I like to fish wash-overs if I can.

    Yeah, splitshot for freelining or drifting a bait under a cork.

    If you fish a bottom rig, use enough weight to keep it from drifting. Don't move it unless you bring it in all the way. If you move it around it will get snagged.

    Honestly, I think we were using an acceptable technique, we were just being impatient I guess, and I did mention we should move closer to the rocks...
