hi welson,dont know what area you fish.amongst the baits previously adviced,try a live baited pout/pin whiting.cast out a grip weight then attach a clip on rig and let the live bait swim around.if theres cod/bass about they will show a interest.

daz ,flowers or chocs? :D ,
think of the bait you are using and where is it feeding.nail a pout or whiting on12-15 inch trace,let it swim down to the weight you r in target zone.
as to how far.bass this time of year 30yrd cast then attach rig.cod .little bit harder. cast as normal then attach rig.chance of a bass on the way out or ,hopefully a cod. these tactics are not guarnted,but will produce at some point.
this time of year bass are feeding up and will feed on most things.cod are coming into our area .spratts and squid and squatt lobesters are on the menu good angling to all

Cheers Mick hope to have a my first decent cod off the beach this year,who knows might fall to this set up ,what I like it does not effect the normal static bait you would fish anyway.

DAZ ;) ;)

yep you are right daz ,but using this method you cant strike.good indiacation is the slack liner.

I know you should not over complicate your fishing (wait for it lol) but run a 4/5 lb line to the snap link on your trace running down the line(washing line) and fish it down like a hand line call me mad but must be a way for better bite indication?

there is no bite indecaation with this method,sorry with spellingt hats why u cant strike .this method is usually used by match fisherman.two hooks on a rig and 3rd hook drifting for midwater fish.
