Have a look in the Range or cash converters they both sell tackle. I too use the ones like petethe hatch.

It's not for all but at low tide you can walk on the pipe underneath and there are some nice fish there. Not many people no about that but I will say at your own risk I done it when I was younger with strips of mackerel for some nice bass and pollock

One of the best float fishing I have done are with power balls , not only do they act as a float but also weight. Cheers keith :D :D

The wind speed and direction is important when float fishing. I have done it occasionally with mixed results but you need conditions where the wind is no more than a light breeze and such that your float is not pushed back into shore. So, at the location mentioned you would need a westerly or north-westerly.
