I fished the north Jetty at Port A for years and although I haven't gone back for a while...
I trimmed down my load until in the end I carried a rod, fishing belt, a long stringer and a couple of silver spoons. I would take the first boat (06:00 back then)in the morning and cast the spoon on the surf (north side) until 9:00 AM or so. Lot's of trout in the first hundred yards of water on the surf side in the morning.
Later in the summer I would carry a big shallow diving black Rapala with a short wire leader and catch King Mackerel, much farther out and often in the hottest part of day. That's a hoot on inshore tackle.
I also fished for Sheepshead between the boulders. Lots of fun and tons of fish. Of course, you can catch just about anything out there.
Wishin' I was fishin', and dreaming of beer
