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.

Darryl is that you? I know another DMAC on another board.

topwaters work great after it hits april. soft plastic rigged under a small cork or click cork are also good. the cork keeps the bait suspended and keeps the hook out of the rocks. The Grass Walker is a weedless walk the dog soft plastic that I designed to fish around shallow oyster, grass, rocks, docks, etc etc. etc.

What are you wanting to catch? Right know shrimper is working best. Top water early then salt assassins is what I would start out with. Then go to spoon.

The noise from the TEXAS RATTLER™ jigs will make those SW Bass Assassins and soft plastics much more effective when jetty fishing.
