Mulloway rig

 Hi All, Ive been out to eshed a few times for mulloway before because my friend was trying to get one and i just tagged along, Personally i think im using the wrong rig maybe and dont know what I should use. im using a paternoster with one line coming off to a circle hook snelled to a livebait hook and using live scallies as bait.

what rig should i use and is there any other good baits?

thanks Alex

At eshed you don't need to cast real far specially if there's lots of boat trafficking
I just use one of my overhead combos tyrinos 30 40lb mono 80 lb wind on leader with large running ball sinker lumo bead to protect knot swivel another length of leader to your hooks of your choice single, snell, circle or jay
