Going to Port Aransas in a month and I'm planning on spending my days fishing at the south jetty and I'd appreciate it if someone can give me some tips for rigging up to catch redfish/and sheepshead and really anything that bites
it will be my first time fishing at the jetty's

Short wire leader is your friend on spoons and gotcha lures for the toothy ones.

Go about 1/3 of the way out on the jetty and fish on the ocean side. Use a piece of shrimp, squid, or cut-bait on the bottom for a variety of species. A 3/4 gold spoon will be good for mackerel, ladyfish, and jacks. Be careful on the jetty rocks if they are wet. They can be as slick as ice. You can catch bigger fish at the end of the jetty but it is a long way down to the end.

The Port A south jetty is currently closed due to dredging operations, not sure when it will be opened again.

Take jetty boat to north jetty. Locals can tell you where to go to do that . Fish the surf side of jetty.

Thanks, guys.


Give a man a fish, feed him for a day.

Teach a man to fish, he will sit in a boat all day and drink beer.
