As stated, you will lose some to smacks and to sharks. BUT they are great tools to work the entire water column with. I often tie off at the jetties and get out so that I can throw to both sides. There is nothing better than feeling that spoon get "heavy"! And in my experience it tends to draw better (larger) fish.

spoons are one of my most productive bait to throw.

You can pick up various sized Kastmaster knock-offs on Ebay for cheap and they work just the same. Some come without hooks, but regardless, I add my own high quality split rings and hooks. My favorite spoon when I don't need a weedless.

spoons work well anywhere. i'd recommend throwing tails, or my favorite a skitterwalk. work the top water right against the rocks.

We used to throw the Sprites (treble hook) at the jetties (hooked/jumped a small tarpon once) and they worked great, but we lost too many to the rocks & changed to weedless. Lost fewer, but would still hang up on occasion. If you are worried about Smacks, put a foot of wire leader on it.

Killer for deep water jigging too.

Lately? I've been using those since I was in diapers lol Kastmaster has always been great for surf/jetty. Good tip, definitely pick up some of those.
