I am no expert but it seems to vary from mark to mark.

If you be specific about a place you want to fish, there are plenty of people on here willing to gave good advice

down here in south wales sandeel squid and mackie seem to be the best for rays, but it does really depend on the mark and probably what is available to the rays naturally

A hand grenade cocktail works well Billy222! But mackerel strip or sandeel works almost as well!

Sandeel up here definately has the edge but I've also had them on mackerel, squid & even blow lug! I think sandeels are their main food on shallow sandy beaches but as most fish are they are opportunists when it comes to food.

A tennis ball size of rag,squid and mackerel. This was the chosen bait for my big one. A liitle tip ignore the little bites there should be enough bait on the hook for a nice ray
