welcome to the forum chaz123, rigs for rays ,sandeel size 2- 2/0 hooks single or pennal , i personaly use a pulley rig as it lifts the weight from the sea bed out of the way ,mackeral ,depending on the size of the chunk of mack you can use size 30/- 4/0 hooks either singles or two/three hook flappers ,im sure others will give you rigs hook set ups so keep looking and dont be afraid to ask ,tight lines :D

All ive been using is a pully pennel, about 3-4ft in length, size 4/0 hooks. Main bait i use is bluey, but also sandeels and herring. Depending on the size of the sandeels i mainly stick 2 on then wrap them in bait elastic. A running ledger is another which i sometimes use, and some people use the up and over but ive never tried.
