I enjoy to fish but have little experience with salt-water fishing. I'm sure I could catch fish by simply dropping in a weighted hook with chicken liver on it. However, I am wanting to have to actually cast and reel like one would do with Bass fishing in fresh-water. What type of lures would be recommended to do so if I am fishing off a dock in the sound at Atlantic beach?

Nearly everyone we see pier fishing uses cut-up shrimp on a big hook.

Thank you but to clarify I will be fishing on a dock in the sound, not on a pier in the ocean. I'm also wanting to cast and reel.

Same thing, shrimp on a hook.

Okay, so I can simply put shrimp on a hook, cast it out, reel it back in like a fresh-water spinner or crank bait, and catch fish?

Maybe this will help? There ARE seasonal variations.

If you are going to use fresh shrimp, try to get them live rather than frozen.
