Best Bait & Rig For Redfish At The Jetty [VIDEO]
This is my favorite setup to use when I’m going after redfish of all sizes at the jetties.
Smaller Baits For Redfish In Numbers
Finger mullet are great baits for smaller and slot redfish.
And I use a smaller circle hook (like a 3/0 or 4/0) for this size of baitfish.
Larger Baits For Bull Redfish
When I want to catch larger reds, my go-to bait is a pogie (AKA menhaden or bunker).
You can also use a threadfin or a large mullet.
A 5/0 circle hook is perfect for this sized bait.
Always remember to match your hook size to your bait size!
Rigging For Redfish At The Jetty
Larger baits are going to get picked at by smaller fish.
To keep your bait around for the longest amount of time and intact as best as possible, hook it through the bottom of the mouth and bring it through the top of their skull.
For smaller baits, you can hook the same way but since it’s not as oily, rip the tail off for extra scent.
If you hook through the body, it will helicopter in the water.
The rig itself is simple.
Your circle hook is secured to a 10 inch, 50# mono leader that ties to a snap swivel.
Use a pyramid weight on the snap swivel. (You want to be able to change out your weights quickly based on current.)
More current = 4/5/6 oz pyramid weight
Lighter current = 2 oz pyramid weight
Your 30# main line braid should be secured to your swivel with a modified uni knot.
Whether you want to catch redfish in numbers or big bulls, the jetties are a great place to get tight lines!
Bring the right rigs and best baits, and your drag will be screaming in no time!
