What's worked well for me - Go to trace is a locked in lead/barrel weight to a bead then swivel, off the swivel tie 5-8ft of lighter bs line (I use clear amnesia) to a pearl redgill. Once you feel the weight hit the bottom by feeling with the braid, wind up 6-8 turns, then as slow as you dare. Idea being the redgill will always stay just above the kelp/pinnacle/reef. Would also like to use metals more, especially in the deeper water, the 60g razorclaws seem popular but finding them hard to get hold of atm.

Surf seeker in black 40g and storm biscay minnow in coastal candy 46g. Most successful lures Ive used, better than the classic firetail worms or redgills, but more expensive at around £5 a pop for both

As said above, texas rigged fire tail or similar cast over rock and weed and retrieved very slowly. This can be from boat/kayak or shore.

Or if afloat in deeper water, large soft plastic minnow on the bottom of a 6-8' trace with two short (3-6") droppers above and suitable sized hooks for 4" sandeel slug type lures. Lower to the bottom and don't move it, just let the swell give it action. If you can see the sounder screen watch for a fish arch near the bottom and slowly wind in 4-6' and then free spool it back to the bottom.

Just remember to hang on tight...

Jellyworms normally get most bites and can be fished slower than redgills etc., but when you're wrecking they have the disadvantage that pout also love them. So, I'd use sidewinders or something similar.
