67 cm Tailor from Metro Beach

Hi Guys,

Went fishing last night to my favourite beach (Burns Beach). Like I said last week. Top spot.

Anyway, fishing with a paternoster rig and a surf popper at the top.

It was about 5.30pm when bang, my 12 foot rod bent like no tomorrow. I caught this thumping 67cm Tailor. Biggest so far for me. Surprisingly, caught it on the surf popper.

Lately there has been a lot of Mullas, but this was a fluke. There has not been a Tailor in sigth at Burns Beach since March. Only Mulloway.

This is a sign to come for the winter months ahead.

 

Happy Fishing All.

 Nice one Tyrone. The big ones have been around for the last few weeks. I've already had 2 over 75cm & a fair few in the 65-75cm range.
