Kalbarri rivermouth 18th July

 Fished the mouth of the Murchison out the end of Chinamans last night. Tried baitcasting some mulies for Tailor, but they were a bit mushy and the pickers were cleaning them off the hooks.

My daughter's boyfriend thought he would try a popper in the dark and he eventually hooked up big time. After a good tussle, he had a very big Tailor at the base of the rocks (est 6 kilos), but he tried to lift it up onto the rocks we were fishing from and the line snapped and that was the last we saw of the jumbo Tailor  .

Another one that got away...

 Heading back out through the Murchison to Meeka then up through the Pilbara possibly as far as Wyndham. Might come back down the coast  or at least spend some time at Exxy and Coral Bay (on leave until the new year).

 I thought it was a Mulla first, as it was pretty broad in the shoulders when we first saw it, but definitely confirmed as a Tailor at the base of the rocks.
