Bait

Ragworm,Sandeel, Crab, Mussel, Lug and Squid – More Info

Rigs

Heavy beach gear with 5-6 oz grips can be used on clean ground, but most of the mark requires single hook rotten bottom paternoster at least 30lbs all through.
Floatfishing and spinning very productive – Pollack, Wrasse and Mackerel, crab on float gear takes larger than average wrasse with 5lb fish possible – More Info

(The water is deep enough to use a string of “hokkai” type feathers for the mackerel and pollack, but expect expensive tackle losses!!)
