Default dumb questions about fishing in gardiners bay

Hello- Im not used to ocean and bay fishing. Grew up fishing for trout in PA. Anyway, I will be in the hamptons area for memorial weekend and have access to the gardiners bay. I would like to park myself next to the water all weekend and hopefully catch some fish for dinner. Anyone have any suggestions on rigs, bait, line weight that I should use? What species should I expect to catch this time of year? Should I just put the bait on the bottom and wait? Also, what tide is best to fish? Thanks.

don't go there with bait... someone will wring your neck...
get some 1oz 11/2 oz bucktails and a few choice plugs and watch the guys catching fish there do it. you will be a hinderence and not welcome. but since i'm not gonna be there...... 15 or 20lb test line..use bunker chunks and clam.. on a "hi lo rig" bought at the bait shop. 2hrs before incoming and 4hrs after outgoing tide 3 or 4oz weight will hold bottom. bluefish/striped bass/weakfish/fluke/ make sure to tell anyone cursing you zim sent you and if a guy named blasko curses at you then punch him in the face.....
