For general jetty fishing i use 3/0 Gami octopus. Sometimes I'll use a light wire circle with a float.
It's probably a good idea to bring some small metals too.

I personaly like the EagleClaw L198 get a mix size 2 to 5 and the 90ss bait runners. I find it best to fish the incomming tide when on the jetty and bring heavy gear. Good Luck :)

Thanks for the report Anthony... never saw a banded rutterfish before... cool looking fish... how many did you catch and what were they feeding on?

I threw the book at the shore, I used clam and live killies to no avail, off the bottom and jigging it wasn't until a guy fishing for snappers (juvenile blues) hooked me up with some dead spearing ( i think thats what they were) that I started getting hook ups. I expected that to happen, I'm still very much a noob when it comes to ANYTHING saltwater I caught 5-6 before the t-storms came flooding in.

I thought this little guy was a snapper so I paid no mind to him, regret that HIGHLY since I too have never heard of a banded rudderfish, and the internet has very little on them.

Spearing are a great bait... I know the snapper blues love them. It's good to see such a diverse species of fish off the Jersey shore.

Cool catch!
I've only seen it once in fish tank at No Bones Bait and tackle.
I guess it's in Amberjack family? Well, at least look like it.
Always thinking of fishing around Philly....
