<font color='#000000'>Try 15 - 20lb mainline coupled with a length of 60lb shock leader roughy 1.5 times the length of the rod ( In your case 15ft).

Hooks, size depends on the species. A good overall size is 2/0 but a good selection should include size 1, 2, 1/0, 2/0 and 4/0 and should be suitable for nearly every specie your likely to catch.

To begin with keep your traces simple, have a look on the site and you will find a rig for every situation.

I dont know the area but try squid, ragworm ,lugworm, mackerel and any other sea bait. Just experiment to see what bait works the best.

Make sure you have a sharp knife, cutting board and a baiting needle for putting on worm baits is a great bit of time saving kit and helps with bait presentation.

Make sure you bring a box of spares incase any thing gets lost or broken. A rig wallet is a good idea, fill it with a good selection cos it saves time. Also tie a rig clip to the end of your shockleader as it saves time and allows you to use multiple rigs.

Hope this helps.</font>
