Half Hitch tackle on Thomas Drive 2 or 3 dollars a dozen for fiddlers and 4 a dozen for shrimp, we fished the jetties sunday and caught 5 sheephead 2 mangrove snapper and 1 keeper black rock bass all on live shrimp. They were spewing eggs as we were pulling them up so with the full moon that may be biting or have lock jaw.

I've been to the jetties in PC three times this year and got on them every time.

To catch more fish, I would take a live shrimp and cut it in half. We caught 30 one trip, 25 another trip and 15 the last time doing that.

Of course, with fewer fish in the area, you may need a live shrimp or fiddler crab to entice them. Good luck.
