Best rigs for whiting would be 2 0r 3 hook flapper and for the cod try a pulley rig. As for bait mate whiting will take pretty much anything if there on the feed but id go for lug worm, on its own or tipped with macky or squid. On the 3 hook flapper try 3 diffrent baits and see what there taking the most and go from there. Rag worm in some areas are good bait as well.
As for the cod id use a pulley rig and big bait. 2 or 3 big lug tipped with squid or a whole squid with a couple of lug tied round the outside with bait elastic will do the job. As for jigging it about id leave it on the bottom with a grip lead so you can hold bottom.

Best of luck :)
