If you can catch live squids there, it would be the best bait to use. Otherwise, live or dead tambans are good baits to go with. I haven't seen many KBL landed from that jetty, but there are certainly big ones in that area. They lurk at at canal mouth of the power house beside the beach. Of course, it's illegal to fish there and inaccessible. You definitely try for them at the jetty, lsbf or apollo with live prawns or live tambans are excellent baits for them.

Live baits are always better, but you probably don't want to be using a same rig to target for both fishes. For a cuda, you want to be using wire trace as cudas have very sharp teeth. KBLs are more cautious fish so a wire trace would probably spook them away.
