These lures catch the widest variety at the jetty and are really easy to use.

Spoons are great for targeting bull redfish, mackerel, and speckled trout.

In order to catch different species, just adjust the size and swimming depth of the lure depending on the species you are targeting.

A larger spoon will swim in the deeper parts of the jetty close to the rocks where there are larger redfish.

If mackerel are going after larger bait, a larger spoon will work best for this as well!

Speckled trout (and flounder) will go after a 1/4 or 1/2 ounce spoon.

Spoons only need a simple, straight retrieve with the occasional pause or twitch.

Bucktail Jig

This should be an essential part of your tackle box for the next few months.

Flounder will be moving out into the ocean to spawn and will travel through the jetties.

Bucktails are one of the best lures to use for flounder this time of year.

Just bounce it along the bottom with slight twitches.

Flounder will be patrolling the edges of the rocks on the smooth, sandy bottom looking for bait to pick off.

When the bucktail is on its way back down after twitching it up, flounder will often strike at this point because they are at the bottom looking up.

Adding a paddletail (or a trailer) to your bucktail can increase the action on the lure as it swims.

Power Prawn

The lure itself has a lot of action and only requires a basic retrieve.

As you pop and drop the lure along the bottom, the tail of the Power Prawn will wiggle and create action on its way back down to the bottom.

You need to work this lure at different depths depending on the species you are targeting.

If there is heavy current at a deeper jetty, you should use a 1 ounce jig head on the Power Prawn to make sure it gets down low enough for redfish that are in the rocks.

When the current is a bit slower, a 1/2 ounce jig head will work best.

Trout will be within the rocks and crevices along the bottom.

By popping the Power Prawn up and above the rocks the fish will ambush the lure!

Shrimp lures are easy prey for predators down near the bottom.

Make sure you are using the larger size Power Prawn at the jetties.

Fish are going to be hunting for larger meals and the bigger Power Prawn lure will attract more fish to strike.

BONUS LURE: Topwater Lures

Topwater is extremely effective when you are seeing a lot of bait pods coming through an area.

This is one of the best lures to use when trout are busting on bait near the jetty.

Trout will pin bait up along the rocks and this lure can pluck them out!

Save this lure for when you see bait pods getting blown up on and visibly see fish hammering on bait.

It is best to use this lure at dawn or dusk when the fish are clearly feeding on the surface.


trout at the jetty

Fishing off the jetties with lures can be extremely effective for finding different fish in various depths and targeting fish laying in the rocks below.

Certain situations and conditions require different applications and all the lures mentioned above are suitable for jetty fishing for big redfish, trout, or mackerel that are blowing up on bait.

Have you caught any flounder on the Texas jetties? Seems to be more of an Atlantic flounder habitat.

Ditto the question re avoiding getting hung on rocks. Seems like this is bigger issue than dealing with weeds/weedlessness since can’t really fish in grass flats/marshes
