Rockingham area fishing

Hey guys/girls

I've only just joined this site and only really just started getting into fishing :)

I enjoy it heaps! Only problem is I can't catch any fish... Iv caught a crab a shark and a massive stingray :/

I was wondering if anyone knows any good spots that I can try out??

I've tried long point, and up and down the local beach but I've had no luck, I am really after some decent tailor!

Any help from any locals would be great!!

Thanks all! Happy fishing!!

I'm going down probably 6pm so just before sunset and usually leave about 8.

I'm using the pre made tailor Rigs that I bought from bcf and putting mullies on them.

Haven't tried point peron yet , I did go down there yesterday but I couldn't really see were I could fish off cause of all the rock in the water.. Haha

Im also new to these forums and soon to start fishing down in rockingham and its surroundings myself. I havent fished around there in years since i was a little kid and we were always targeting herring. But i will now be targetting tailor and trying a few different methods i have come across. One thing i have seen alot of is the use of metals.
