Dont know the area bud but rag, sandeel and mackerel are dynamite on the float normally wherever you go, the float is a great way to fish for pollock, coley and wrasse on rocky marks

You'll certainly be fine fishing those baits and will have plenty chance of a fish. You could be in for cod, wrasse, coalies, pollack off of the rock marks. Fish the rag on a float close in for wrasse and pollack, although the pollack are more likely to come in the deeper water. Fish the other baits hard to the bottom on a pulley rig and rottom bottom. My preference would be to fish 4hrs down to low and 2 hours back up again. A nice bit of peeler crab fished into the many gullies out there should produce some cod and wrasse.

Mind its not the winter yet so keep the baits a little smaller as the fish are a bit picky at this time of the year and the likes of the wrasse have small mouths.

Best bet for the pollock is a mark with a lot of kelp that shelves away very quickly into deeper water. I always try to fish min 2 hours before high tide and 2 after. Floated rag or sandeel should provide wrasse and pollock in th eweedy marks. Spinning dexter wedges or jelly eels (red & black) should also help produce pollock a bit further out. The fish are often just at your feet. Good idea to go and have a look where you are fishing at low tide to find out where all the gullies are, sand for bass and flat fish. Tight lines.
