hi there aush, thornbackflounder is spot on with his sole advice, the only thing i would add is when you cast out reel back pretty slowly until you feel a ledge ( about 30-40yrds out) and let it settle just on top of it. also keep you rod very low and to the side not striaght at the water, this helps pin the baits to the floor as sole wont swim up to take bait. you can also put split shot on the snood. hope this helps. let me know how you get on.
ps the tide is 11.43am on sat with a 5.6m tide,
