Finding out soon.

 I used to be a die hard , but since getting a small tub , i have been out of the loop. 

 My preffered area is the midwest around this time of the year, and will hitting the sand next new moon, quad bike in tow.

 As a slightly older gent and been a avid reader of WA fishing reaching back to the 50,s  , I  dont think Im alone believing  the tailor in the metro area 

 have had there day. 

 Younger crew may not realize but it wasnt that long ago that tailor were found in most spots and were among the most numorous  fish caught.

 Its not to say metro tailor are not a target species , as even this year I have some catching some on social media , but due to human traffic, lights etc

  I think true tailor anglers need to look outside metro to really get into the best tailor can offer. 

 The more remote reefs in the midwest fish as good now as 10 or 15 years ago, but I do believe they really only visit the shoreline in these places when 

 the conditions suit. As in no shore bait , no tailor , or unsuitable water temps or clarity , no tailor.

 On those years the buggers are still around but just not feeding were we are fishing for them. A old report of mine, and yes georgia (19) still fishs with dad.

 Similar story with the herring. they've been scarce and consequently so have the salmon.
