Fishing Conto's help

Hi Everyone

I am heading down to Conto's in october.  i have surfed the area but never fished it. 

From what i have seen the rocks near the surf break can be fished off and the beach also i suppose.

most of the coastline south from there appears deep and rocky/weedy ie not sinker material do people just suspend a bait under a float in these parts? or chuck lures?

Is the beach at the southern point worth a fish?

Any help/tips would be appreciated also what would i expect to catch down there that time of year.  I would ideally like to be fishing for the bigger species in the area ie mulloway, tailor sambo's not so much bread an butter species
