One day November 10 years ago fishing c town jetty had a 12 lb blue on. I watch my friend start running of the the rocks saying nothing to me I turned toward the Ocean and a 12 ft wave drove me into rocks I handed my rod to another fisherman he said why you handing your rod to me I said I can't move my hand well the collision with the rock moved my pinky top knuckle back about an inch . That was the last time to fish those rocks. Now I work the beach down from there and do just as good just got to walk and cast a little.

If you learn the ropes from others, set up a buddy system and have the right equipment you can get home every night. But age catches up and for most there is a time to cut back on your risks. That’s where I’m at but have done both rock hopping and yakking at night where the fish are. To each their own.

Jeeze , we’ll never get to Mars if this guy’s the captain. 

Okay Buzz Aldrin. You won’t mind us strapping you to a million pound rocket full of explosives. 
 

By the way, a few years back - a navy seal / special forces guy died kayak fishing the CBBT in MD. (Late December maybe?) You don’t get more intelligent, brave, prepared & capable humans than those guys.

Definitely December

There's a thread somewhere on SOL where the guy took a spill on a jetty and he busted up the second knuckle of his middle finger and the bone was sticking out. He posted a picture. Talked to more then a few people that busted up their knees and won't step on them anymore. Seen a guy or 2 leave a blood trail back to their car due to gashing their face on a rock. A guy died a few yrs back at MI. The op is not wrong.

If I fished from the rocks and I didn’t like crowded jetties I wouldn’t be stupid and encourage more people to fish from the rocks

That fella had no business being out there.  A tourist who pushed his chips into the middle of the table on a game he had no clue how to play.  At least the OP of this thread knows his limits.

You tease.  I only have eyes for you.  Let’s schedule your proctology exam for this spring.  Mendhaden oil for lube provided.
