Hey mate heres a map of the area you seem to like to fish, you can generally use hard bodies anywhere, if you feel it may be too weedy or snaggy just use a shallow diver, but working the edge of sand flats at low tide use a deep diver and work it up the drop off, or deep divers around the bridge structure.

You would be best to talk to Nipper or Scrote as to what styles and colours to use, send them a PM I'm sure they'll be only too happy to help.
Also scrote sells very affordable range of lures and leaders , have a look here https://www.facebook.com/pages/Scizz-Ta ... 47?fref=ts

Hope to catch up one day mate, maybe when it warms up a bit, I'll bring my young fella down the serpentine for a fish. Cheers

If you are looking at hardbodies also include blades in your arsenal
and learn how to hop them over the sandflats.

Scrotes blades are not a bad place to start if budget is a concern
and you want something that works. Blades are a good land based
option especially on windy days but they are prone to snagging.

Have a look at the hardbodies in Ballina Bait and Tackle also Brett will
be able to show you the lures that the boys are currently using.
