Default Jetties

What can be caught at the jetties at Orange Beach this time of year? I thought about going out this weekend and tossing a live shrimp on the bottom.

What bait would you recommend? I was thinking shrimp and pin fish on the bottom.

My wife only likes live shrimp. If you take a sabiki with, you can probably catch some live stuff to throw out. Ladyfish and bluefish usually hit spoons and bubble rigs pretty good (as well as live and dead stuff). Bottom fishing will produce more drum, pompano, snapper, and shark. Free line or float baits might produce more Ladyfish, bluefish, maybe redfish or sheepshead.
The species you are likely to catch may be dictated by the bait and presentation you are using as well as the depth, location on the jetties, and tidal flow. If you are planning on walking out on the rocks to fish, be careful- we saw a girl pretty busted up a couple weeks ago out there.
Best advice I can give is to stop by SAMs Stop and Shop on canal rd and talk to Chris ^^^^^
He'll set you up with some good bait, and advice that'll put you on the fish!

Thanks guys, planning to head out early and anchor up on the end of the jetties and see what happens. How deep would you fish for sheepshead?

I just like free lining, maybe a split shot... Might need something a little heavier- Kinda depends on the current. Outgoing tide I'll set up on the outside of the pass, incoming tide, I'll set up near the mouth maybe just inside.
You can find bluefish and Spanish along the inside of the pass from near the bridge, and along the beaches outside the pass (especially earlier in the morning) and can be caught on a variety of lures or bait (i.e. Clarke trolling spoons, 1-3 oz casting spoons, bubble rigs, jigs, gotcha plugs, etc). Sheepshead might not be as easily found as the are in the spring. Use a small hook, piece of crab, small shrimp, or fiddler will work. Drum will hit almost anything, small croaker or pinfish, shrimp, chunk of blue crab, and cut bait. Chris has been catching flounder and speckle trout off the beach too lately. A little further out you might find a king mackerel to fight. If the weather agrees and you don't mind going a couple miles out, you can check out the Minton Reefs, 3 Mile Barge, or Cullverts. You might be surprised what you'll find there- cobia, king mackerel, Spanish mackerel, bonito, snapper, some grouper, jacks, etc....
Good luck and tight lines!
tips offered are just from my personal experiences fishing local waters- we don't profess to be pros or overly experienced, we just like catching fish!
