Fresh mackerel is the most commonly used bait and will cover you for most situations when fishing around this area. Squid  is a good supplement and frozen mackerel as a backup. Tope are partial to a whole head of mackerel. Wrasse can be tempted with ragworm. Lugworm is good for targeting smoothhound and bass.
