Kalbarri stickbaiting Tailor.

Hey guys,

Decided to do a quick Kalbarri trip over the weekend. With only 1 day and night fishing we decided we would spin for Tailor using stickbaits during the morning and arvo then head north of the river and soak some big baits for Mulloway during the night.

We fished a spot that has produced heaps of tailor for us in the past. With in 5 minutes of spinning Blake was on landing a nice Tailor around 70cm. Over the next hour or so we landed 5 and lost a few more with one straightening out my hooks on my treble.

With the weather making a turn for the worse it started raining so we decided to head south and focus our fishing there for the night. Fishing was kinda quiet with one soapy and plenty of rigs lost to sharks.  After an uncomforatble sleep in the car for the night we were back on our way back to Perth pretty satisfied with the days fishing.

Hope you like the photo's.

love Kalbarri and it looks like it was worth the trip.

How did you get across the river to fish Oysters? I've always toyed with the idea a taking a kayak.

Yeah, good one!

Would've been a blast to see the stickbaits getting smashed by those fish! And that's a cracker of a croaker...very close to being oversized for a "soapy"!
