You don't have to move
Just don't stay still
You don't have to go low
Just don't go too high
You don't need to live
Just don't die

Go to the "Old Site" below and scroll down the page to "Style and Technique."
Other than that, use squid and anchovy on hi/lo's (surf-leaders) and sliding weight rigs (bottom rig). About a 2/0 sharp octopus hook could take all...maybe 3 or 4 ought if you want to bump it up a bit. You can just use tied snelled hooks on the hi/lo leader if that makes things easier. Use weight (sinker) according to the gear you have. 3 or 4 ounces perhaps... Fresher the bait the better. Anchovy will take halibut, ray, whatever... squid will take ray/shark usually....
