Try 2up, one down if you have the bait. Put some beads on the hook lengths. Small Carp size hooks. Try cuttle instead of squid. It stays on the hook better as its tougher. Cut into small strips about 3/4 inch long. When you get bites that you miss. Leave it there. They often hit-n-run. Then come back.

I would recommend barbed carp hooks (don't buy barbless by mistake) or trout fly hooks size 6, 8 or even 10. 15lb hook length, not too long. Have the bottom hook about a foot off the bottom, top hook adjustable and move it up as the tide slackens. A killer bait is half or quarter of a squid head with all the gungy bits dripping. Use a rotton bottom to avoid losing the lot. Good luck!

Those mini muppets are lethal for bream and tipping them with squid works well.
I know one of the England boat team uses a rig like this.
