Fish like inlets. Fish them with Bucktails and swim shads around the beginning and the end of tides.

Good 15lb fish. Congrats. up

Agreed on the use of bucktails and swim shad depending on limited scenarios. They also like much more than inlets. Consider that a good surfcaster will implement a much wider range of scenarios over inlets n 2 types of lures. But, its a start.

Also, please be safe and invest in cleats when rock hopping. Korker brand boots are more of the standard with interchangeable soles.

Nice fish. Looks like you're going mining with that headlamp. Moon was the second definitely no need for a light.

True!! - Lighting must be kept to a minimum when targeting large fish. Appearing in certain locations with a headlamp like that one on your forehead will get you snarls upon arrival.

Thanks guys. The boots are cleated. Cabelas 50 bucks. Find them on sale for 35. They are extremely sturdy. As for the light I only use it to land fish. Need it to go down the rocks. Don't care how bright the moon is. Anything else back to the water. Tight lines. Been doing this a while.

Gotcha. The points on inlets and lures kinda suggested differently, so was giving my 2 cents... Keep it up in that case. up

As pretty much a novice, trying to navigate and conquer an inlet is quite the formidable task. I learned that the hard way a few nights ago but I'm determined to put the work in and get better results next time. Night fishing on a jetty is definitely intimidating for a newbie but I would assume that your best chance to catch a nice size bass is somewhere that has good structure and a nice moving current.

Nice catch on the inlet.

My understanding of what lures to use on an inlet during both slack water periods are eels at night.
When the current changes (almost never the posted times) bucktails are on duty or a heavy weighted shad. But I fish the shad against current. I only buy the bunker colors. I also understand that bunker swim against current flow so that's why I fish them in that manner.

I'm open to corrections If I'm wrong

Agree to disagree. Absolutely no place for a light like that fishing an inlet at night, not even on the darkest of nights. Been landing bass from Jettys for 35 years and never needed a light to land them. Only thing a light does (besides spook the fish) is draw attention to you and let everyone know you're into fish. As far as going up and down the rocks, if you need a light like that do it, you shouldn't be in that spot.

The reason for the bucktail shad comments were that is what has been working for me lately. I got reamed last time for not"helping". So I figured I'd give a little more detail. Fishing is fishing. I fish many other places with many other methods. Just trying to point people in the right direction... Again, someone remind me why I bother... Anyway I'll stick to my light. Thanks no reason to be killed over landing a fish. I like to see what I'm stepping on it is what works for me.

I don't think these guys are trying to kill you over landing the fish.

Some of us take this pretty seriously, so we might just want to get/set the record straight if we read or see something that might prompt and warrant further discussion. Reports can use some discourse, constructive critique and all that too, don't you think?

Now, Bright light, bells, and other distractions on the surf, are irritating to me and I definitely identify with bentrod's argument. They are counterproductive to what we all are trying to achieve in many ways. At least many of us...

In addition to his reasoning behind it, consider this - When trying to land that one fish with bright light blasting into the water, you will spook the rest, and will likely kill the bite for everyone else. I dont think you want to be responsible for killing the bite for others, right? I'm sure not.

The statement about btail n shad very much read as if you were suggesting those were the only things that worked in that scenario.

So, alarms were set and diehards chimed in. I think that's all that's happening here.

Thanks for the up to date and informative report Nice fish up.I wonder what spooks the fish more at the end or middle of a jetty a huge fish splashing around by the rocks cause its taking longer than needed to land cause of not using a light or a light? Either way if I have a fish at the end or middle of a jetty and couldn't see well because its to dark out moon or no moon i'd use a light so I wouldn't A. Kill myself and B.Lose the fish. Just curious saw the tape on the rock how long was the fish? 37-40 inches?

No way to respond to this nicely. The sport is not for you. Party boats and piers have plenty of light if that is such a big concern.

To answer the question you think is a clever one, it will take longer to land the fish, if at all, after it sees your light, starts going nuts, hence DECREASING the chance of landing. Obvious that you haven't actually faced the scenario much to know that.

The jetties are dangerous light or no light. You lose more than gain with unnecessary light as long as you prepare for what you are getting into. Otherwise you are better suited fishing beach side or taking on another hobby which will not disrupt those aiming to be productive.

Leave it to the professionals. Real, Shaka, and CowMurk. The 3 musketeers. They bash my posts all the time. First I was accused of keeping shorts. Funny thing is I almost never keep bass even the legal sized ones. Now they moved on to JAYBASS what a surprise. I am not impressed with the snag and drop method because a noob can catch a 20 lber on that method. They are good at fishing but they gang up on noreast posts minus Shaka cause he is new. I'm perfectly fine catching over 100 schoolies and getting skunked 1 trip out of 20.

To be clear

My comments where for the purpose of "discussion" of lures on the inlets. Things get out of hand hear when anglers go on the defensive, and can't see the main idea of a response/comment. We should be able to discuss without "bashing"

Now there are a few that are "bad apples" that choose to "take shots" because they lack comprehension...19 continues to expose himself as one of them by his constant need to add fuel to a flame...that's what makes Noreast a not so encouraging place to post for thin skinned fishermen in my opinion of course.

Jay it was a good catch...congrats and keep them coming.

Hey Now

Kinda reminds me of the good ol days Shades

A-team is no stranger to the "Tet Offensive" we been doing this for years...

Lights, cameras, action, whatever's clever just take the enemy down by all means necessary

And then eat that mofo and make him become a part of you Wink

Jaybass strap a gopro under the headlight next time and do it right bb
