Interested in some Gulf fishing from shore? Try jetty fishing. Jetties are rock piles extending into the water. They have structure, current and bait fish – the essentials for attracting fish like black drum and redfish (red drum). Now is your best chance to catch a big redfish, since the bull run begins anew each fall.
Find out what’s biting where by signing up for weekly Gulf Coast fishing reports.
Pro tip: If you’re not having much luck, try the other side of the jetty – there’s usually a difference in wave action and current. For more tips on where to go, when to go and what gear to take, see the magazine story Jetty Jackpot.
