If the sea is to coloured use a specialist bass rod and a running pennel rig or pulley rig to lob out a large lug bait, macky head and guts or a big peeler bait into the surf where the bass are likely to be feeding. When the sea is coloured the bass will be feeding by scent and not sight and i have found that large baits with a good scent trail can score highly in these conditions.

As Bass-ic Instinct said if the water is coloured like it always is in the bristol channel you could try using juicy baits, we use loads of peeler crab around the clevedon area and last year it produced quite a few bass with the biggest I seen was around 4.5lb ( not mine though )

A mate of mine also had one around the 6lb mark but dropped it climbing back up the rocks, rod under one arm, frisky bass under the other, a recipe for disaster lol.

An option that Im thinking of trying out is a surface popper or something that will cause alot of splashing, Ive been thinking about baiting it aswell with crab or mackeral to add a bit of scent.

Most of the bass around here are within 50 yards of the shore but if we use mackeral, squid or crab baits theres also a big chance of catching a conger which would be interesting on my little bas rod.. lol
