Never been beach casting there but definitly its good for sea bass mate!
That being said i haven't been spinning there for a while now but i was talking to Simong when we all met up earlier this month @ zeta & he said it's still productive there  ;D
Im going to go give it try some time soon too after the festi :)

Ive done well with red head crystal minnows in the past & also those soft plastic/rubber lures that look like fish which have a small weight in them are pretty good too!
To work them you kind of bounce them on & off the sea bed on retrieval (they have a single hook in them which is tuned upwards so as not to hook the bottom)

Also i had a lure similar in shape to an x-rap which was jointed (2 peices) which was very good..in fact i lost it on a big sea bass last time i went for them.
So i guess those 'new' jointed x-raps Mr Fish has might work well too.

Mates I don't know if they work but I must say that in fresh water maybe fish are used to see frogs so they can find them to eat them but in our waters you never see any frogs exept at Chadwick Lakes!
