rigs and bait

Baitcast mulies for tailor use 8-10 kg line 40 pound knotable wire 4/0 5/0 gang depending on size of mulies use iqf bait, blocks get to mushy once thawed,if it is a bit windy use size 3-4 bean sinker between swivel and hooks.If u fish after dark use fillets of tailor or half mullet on a 15-24 kg 12FT rod minimum 15-24 kg line running sinker slide 4-5 ounce star sinker a swivel stop the sinker and about a metre of 80 pd leader, snelled 5/0 on top and 7/0 on the bottom good luck and good fishing.

Go to agree, S Bend is a good spot. Coronation Beach is pretty good for Mulloway too.
