I've not actually caught them there but the habitat looks right. Years ago I recall on two occasions large bass following behind small pout I had caught, so maybe float fished live bait is the way to go. Good luck.
Semptember seems to be the best time for Bass in the Torbay area.Tibetts mentioned Pout being followed.I've fished in the area with live Pollack on float gear and caught Bass.Just use a handline with a small hook and bit of anything as bait and you can catch said Pollack right under your feet as you need them.
Using this method there is also the chance of a big Mac.
