Welcome!
Best bet is to head to Pulpit rock and fish 1 1/2 hours either side of low, or when the tide slows down basically.
It's where the UK shore record wrasse was caught some years back.
Hardback will tempt the bigger ones but do take a few spare leads as it's really rough.
It's not too bad at range and this is where you'll find the big bream at this time of year.
Float squid strips will tempt them. Float tactics will catch gar, bream and pollack.
When the tide picks up you can head to the east side and fish the kelp beds next to the first boat hoist. You'll get plenty of rattles on worm baits
