Mulloway Cockburn Sound or inshore reefs

Does anyone target mulloway from a boat through cockburn/ warnbro sounds or inshore outta reefs. Im trying to do some research, anyone get consistant mulloway. They have to live somewhere through the rough cold winter months. Cheers

 Not an expert on mulloway fishing but my understanding is that fresh tailor fillets or whole whiting work well. Also try aim for the tidal changes and usually night time is best. In Perth at least I’m pretty sure they just roam the coastline. Fussy eaters, and intelligent, probably how they get so big.

Any wrecks best way is zig zag centre of sound ( slight drop of areas) find bait schools prior to sunset. A little burley regular. Double snell with small running lead . Lower to bottom . Then lift a meter of bottom. Stops you catching a heap of rays. Mulies, live yellow tail or fresh tailor of the bottom does the trick. Don't catch every night by your bycatch is worth while. Mainly gummies. And odd pinky. Good luck,
