    Mate surely the guys in the club can help you out?

    If you mean Inverbervie it is primarily a Cod beach.
    Steep shelving with fairly deep water in close.
    A forty or fifty yard cast puts you in a kelpy channel if I remember correctly.
    For fishing a match there I personally would make 2 or 3 hook flappers (depending on how many hooks you are allowed) with a six foot rig body and the hook snoods spread top, middle and bottom.
    Rig body sixty pound mono and hook snoods 30lb and about 24 inches in length with a 1/0 hook which is strong enough to land a decent codling even with a bit of a swell and still small enough to take any flatties or smaller fish that might be around.
    Alternatively you could go bigger and fish a 3/0 pulley pennel rig if you want and think that a decent stamp of codling are around. Try sixty pound rig body with a 40lb hook snood around 3 foot in length.
    I always take a selection of rigs and at least 4 of each, in fact for match fishing I might carry around sixty plus rigs of various permutations.
    Bait wise lugworm tipped with squid or mussel should catch and if you can get hold of any peeler crab then even better.
    Might be worth taking some bluey or mackerel as well.
    Seriously though speak to the guys in the club either before or after the match to get tips etc they should help you out but don't disturb them whilst the match is in progress!!
    Good luck and enjoy.
