Northmole this time of the year nothing but blowies and small sharks

 So a couple of us have tried to get tailor and speaking to others about north mole none of us are getting any tailor. I know one guy got a few herring but its basically a graveyard seems to have been over fished or over run by blowies and small tarwine. Not sure where else to try in the metro area where we will have more success.

Metro thoughts

My 2 cents , north mole , ammo jetty, hillarys  etc all good for a quick line wet , with mainly just a very low chance of hooking anything decent ,

except at definite excact times , like salmon or pinkie run at north mole , or run of sharks, or tuna at ammo etc.

If you are chasing a feed , I think you need to expand your horizons, for example, tims and white hills fish ok, at most times,

or say pipandiny on a strong seabreeze in summer, or say the lano jetty at night.

These really are outside metro , but thats the price for chasing a realiable feed.

A mate fishs places like swanbourne , or Floreat , in late afternoons and always seems to pick up a feed, but

he pays  close attention to tides and moon phases a fair bit , to help his success along.

There are some older guys around Perth , whom still reguarly fish 3 or 4 times a week , and rarely miss out , but I think success in hard fished areas

comes down to oberservation and smarts , rather than pure effort.

Target your fish , move around , be friendly and talk to others, improve your tecquniques, thats how to old boys stay successful in the metro.

north mole etc is great when there is a "run" of fish. Good luck getting a spot though once word is out. There is some great land based locations close to perth if you are willing to go the extra mile (walking mostly). Some of the reef ledges between Trigg and hillaries if you want to wade out a little with care. Then up around Yanchep and Two rocks if you spend the time getting to know the areas. And don't let anyone tell you you can't catch tailor in the middle of the day!
