As you are after MJs and you are fishing dark, murky waters I will suggest you stick with bait fishing.
In case you are trying lure fishing, I will suggest you use a hybrid local version, that is a #5 spinner attached to the tail end of a shallow diving lure. When you will attache the the spinner after removing the tail end hooks, and attache a spinner there, you will find your shallow diving lure acting as a count down one. Let it sink as per the conditions and then retrieve it so as the spinner blade start rotating. use pause in between and I am sure, you will land your MJ.
If you are using soft lures, chuck them where the wave is breaking on the rocks and retrieve slowly.
I hope that your next report will be in image gallery section, you holding your prized MJ in your hand.
