What lures might make for some successful catch-release jetty fishing?

It'll be pretty near like having never fished saltwater before - haven't fished salt water in +4 decades, off the MA-NH-ME coastline when I was a kid, with shrimp, squid or cut fish. Half the time with a hand line. Never used lures of any kind.

Edit: Should have said fishing FROM or ON a jetty. I've got a boat but the trailer's only painted so it stays well away from saltwater. The lakes around here are salty enough...

That question covers a LOT of territory. Me, I use live bait or cut bait 98% of the time. One never knows for sure just what will hit a lure. Sometimes what your trying to catch weighs heavy on what type of lure and what color/s to use. Water clarity and other Earthly factors have a bearing too. I'll leave your question to others that throw a lot of plastics near the jetties. May want to look at for oodles of saltwater fishing info. Tobin has 4 DVD's out....take a look.

Gold or silver spoons get plenty in different sizes. I like the weedless kind with the single hook

what he said. also i like large rattle traps(not huge) with the front hook removed. takes a little practice, but you'll learn the right speed to crank em right down the rocks.
just dawned on me you may be on the rocks and not in a boat. might nix the rattle trap idea if you are.
