I was just wondering what people thought about the south jetty. Does is make a difference to walk your gear down towards the end? Or is it just about the same anywhere? I would like to park and fish right behind the truck but if the fish are further, I'll make the walk. Thanks, y'all!

Depends on what you're fishing for and the type fishing you do. You'll find reds further out, along with smacks and other fish.

Closer to the beach and further to the west you'll find other species this time of year, sheepies, etc, even though you'll find some species all along the jetty.
Not gonna give away all the info but look for reds or other fish feeding on crabs & other bait being swept out with the tide. Channel side.Fish close to the rocks if not in clean/clear water.
Good Luck

Exactly what Too said.. And well said! I'm really not a live bait guy but my kiddos killed em on freelined live shrimp, they stayed busy, rat reds, sand trout, specs, smacks and lady fish. Lots of bait robbers so be ready! Me... I went to port a outfitters and bought big cast masters to. Cast out far and caught big lady fish, trout and smacks! We fished surf side 100% of the time. Walked About half way with the kiddos and worked our way back. Look for spooked bait and you will get bit!? Jetties are my least favorite spot to fish but you never know what will hit?! Take lots of water to drink and where good shoes! Good luck to ya and let us know how you do. Headed back to north Texas! cry

Before I bought my boat 8 years ago, I fished only the south jetty. Miss Ruth (the jetty lady) used to catch tons of fish within 50yds from the end on the gulf side. The first time I met her 20 years ago, she sat 10 yds from me pulling in one bull red after another while I watched in awe. I learned so much from her every year on fishing the Jetties. She'd catch a piggy perch and put it on her big pole and threw it out under a popping cork. You can also do the same with live shrimp or mullet. At the right times of the year, hang on tight!
