Going to throw some lightweight lures (metal, a couple swimmers, a couple plugs) around a couple jetties and the bay (LBI) a little later. Anybody catching doing the same? What're you using?

thin minnow type swimmers:

5" redfin

sp minnows

bombers

mag darters

 

at night a smaller 3/4 or 1oz needle fished super slow

 

smaller 4-5" danny plugs

 

don't be afraid to try some bigger plugs though!!

Bucktails used to be my go to lure when nothing else would work. Funny, I haven't used them in such a long time. Don't really know why. I think the last time I did, I used a green or chartruese bucktail with white gulp and caught flounder from the surf --nobody else caught a thing.

I used bucktails more in the past as well. I think the tech advances with plugs and swimmers (especially swimmers) has hooked me and lured (pun heaven!) me away from them. By the way I got nothin' the other night. If this wind lays down a little I'll try again.

ive been using some freshwater lures with beefier hardware on them.  sexy swimmers and other swimbait type lures in the 4-5" range.  livetarget makes a nice saltwater grade swimbait.  larger  spinnerbaits 1/2oz+.  even soft swimbaits like yumm money minnow with the weighted offset worm hook rigged weedless.  a weightless 6" sluggo or bass kandy is pretty good when condition permit.  small smack-it poppters work well when fish are on topwater stuff.  yo-zuri minnows of any type work well.  suspending jerkbaits like x raps or husky jerks work.  small metals like the #0 deadly dick or small swedish pimples or hopkins all have their time.  if you wanna fish small there is so much that you can do.
