The tides and weather look pretty nice tomorrow, so I'm thinking I'll wet a line in the Gulf on my lunch break. On weekends it gets too crowded for fly fishing, but hopfully tomorrow won't be too bad.

My question is, do you guys use wire leaders or shock tippets for jetty fishing? Spanish mackerel and ribbon fish have some pretty sharp teeth. Also, for some of you who've done more jetty fishing, do you think I should bring a sinking line as well? I usually just stick with the floating line. But then I haven't caught snapper or flounder on a fly off of the jetties either.
