Tailor or Whiting

 Hey guys,

was thinking of doing an early morning fish at yanchep and was wondering whether it is worth my time to try for a couple of tailor or just to go for some whiting? I would like to get a good catch as i have never caught anything besides juvie snapper, and wondering if i should risk not catching anything in a bid to bag a bigger fish such as a tailor, or to make my chances a bit bigger by going for the less sizable whiting. Whatever your answers are, could you please give me any tips and pointers on what is the best techniques and rigs which would give me better chances at catching something! I've got a 10 footer for surf fishing and a 6 footer for a lighter session, i've also got ganged hooks, star sinkers, ball sinkers, small hooks, mulies and ox heart. Even if you want to pm me if you dont want to make your secret widly known to the public!! 

Thanks in advance for your answers.

 Like trav said, do both I would set the mulie out on a paternoster setup plonk it into the gutter or just behind the surf and while that's out use ya smaller rod to catch some whiting, put the first whiting on the gang while u get more for a feed, hopefully there's some tailor around or maybe even small mulla,

good luck mate hope ya get a few


The art of fishing consists of casting, winding, trolling and jigging

while freezing, sweating, swatting and swearing.
