it depend on the swell.

if u can get away with light sinker then use light because mulloway dont lik to feel to much wieght and if they do there gone. as for tailor i dont think they realy care.

it all depend on the sweel and current and the rig ur using.

cheers danno

Yep. Danno is right and it also depends on the wind

The lighter the weight you can use the more natural your bait will look. But if it is a howling south wester and a big swell, you will need a fair bit of lead to get out the area where the fish will be. You would also need a sinker that will hold in the sand, like a star sinker or a grapnel sinker.

use the biggest star sinker u can find

ive caught tailor and mulloway on a running sinker and a fixed sinker the important thing is to use chemically sharpened hooks or very sharp file sharpened hooks ( a sinker fixed on a loop above the hooks is easier to cast - set the rod in a holder with fighting drag set - fish two rods so u have a bait in the water all the time - using a star picket hammered into the sand where thee waves wash in tie a hessian sack full of fish frames etc and maybe some tuna oil ( bottle off tuna oil with holes punched in it)

Thanks for the advice. if you're using a live bait should u use no weight or just a small weight?

i find live bait can be a pain in the ass of the beach and big oily fillet  baits or mulies are alot easier to fish with and produce more results
