Ive fished there but not really jigged. Most of the ground is quite shallow so nothing much iver 120gms will be needed. But Lock upo and hang on.

Keep it tight, reeeeeeel tight!

Jigged around Wreck Point

Deep water out there and nailed a pinky or two but you need to have good weather.
The Okja and Raba Raba jigs are supposed to work well inshore, but I didn't do too well with them myself.

He's thrown a few jigs around there I believe!!!

Would you be drifting or anchored?

Gillies Oktas

Worked well for me up there out of the yak on a lot of unseens, my demise was not being able to put the brakes on at close quaters too the reef, but at least the Gillies jigs come standard with heavy duty assists & in weights upto 300 grams.

Keep posted for the new Shimano "Lucanus" Jigs coming out soon, they really look the business and come in weights upto 200 grams, also with heavy duty hardware and replacement skirts.
