Fishing the hollows scoured out by the rough seas at low tide produces superb bags of quality cod to lugworm and peeler crab baits.
Other species will include coalfish, eels and pouting with peeler crab, mussel and lugworm the top baits.
The most successful baits are black lugworm in a cocktail with frozen crab or razorfish.
Key to success is a good supply of fresh peeler in the summer or an equally good supply of black lugworm in the winter.
The best bait for me was fresh lugworm, whipped onto 1/0 Aberdeen patterns with shirring elastic.
