st.donats is worth a go when the tide is coming in as there is a nice surf that starts running.........

ye jsut use a running ledger, 2/0 hook, 20lb snoods. 3oz lead, bass rod, 15lb mainline. no need for the extra bead and swivels just more to loose. fish tight to the bottom, if uoi dont loose gear, you aint fishing it right!

Another option is using the same rig that steffy has put up but use a golf ball with a hole drilled through the middle of it...allows your gear to drop slower to the bottom, allowing you to count how deep it is and then on subsequent casts start your retrieve at the depth you want....i've also found that the golf ball will not snag easily and acts as an attractant!!

you got it.
a golf ball is probably in the region of about 2ozs so you can get some good distance....
i try and use about 5 foot hooklength to either a redgill or frozen sandeel.

good luck

with the golf ball i would definately go for 'Titleist' or 'Top Flite' but stay away from the lesser known makes, they tend to slice on the cast on don't quite get the distance needed, LOL!!!

I will try that, got about 100 balls left cos I haven't played for years coz of the fishing.

i use the same idea.

but.....

i have the small traces ready made. i use a clip at the top instead of the swivel.

i use 20lb braid mainline with a small swivel on it. just clip the rig to it and your away. i use a 15lb hooklength. if you do get snagged you only loose the hook. i have my own mould that makes a pencil lead in 4 different sizes, also snags less.

try a bubble float in place of the lead fill the float to near the top with water that`ll keep you clear of the snags and if you get snagged release a bit of line and it should float free threequarters full equals two ozs
