Hi Big Ron

I run my boat out of Soveriegn, and yes there are some Plaice , taking lug and rag, but favoring rag, last time we were out, Ron i find rag tends to take more species than lug, but yes lug does have its day, at times. Ron if you drift for the plaice a good rig is the stainless double boom, you know the one you just clip your weight on the center, stick to short snoods 6/8 inches, few yellow beads
size 1 fine wire hook, rag or lug, tipped with thin strip of squid if you like, do try and incorporate a silver spoon in your snoods.
If you anchor, then for doggys-etc- squid or fish baits, have had some nice smoothhounds, had them on whole squid, rag, but they do love crabs, again the worm produces results, mixed speices.

Ron hope you have a good day, and hope this helps a little
cheers Graham
