With bass tackle you can work a good many lures in the surf or from the jetties with success.
I recommend soft plastics on 1/8-1/4 oz jig heads. Trout/Red Killers, Saltwater Assassins, Gulp Alive Shrimp (new penny color), Cocahoe Minnows, Paddle-tails, etc.
Hard baits would be Mirro-lures, Rapalla Skitterwalk, Badonkadonks, and other topwaters.
Also try Redfish Magic spinner baits, gold and silver Johnson Sprite 1/2oz-1oz spoons.
