Whens the best time to go fishing

Last few days been getting up before the sun at the northmole or keep jolly frog jetty and all I've caught was northwest blowie and trumpeters plus it was an out going tide so I'm not sure what's going and if you can help me I was using heaps of burly and prawns and mullet for bait as I was targetting tailor or bonito and bread and butter fish!

If you are trying to chase tailor. Location is very important, as are conditions.

Sunset or sunrise combined with a rising tide is the best for me

A rising tide, especially when it coincides with sun up/down is generally best

*Oh yeh, go buy urself an anglers almanac, its a little yellow book that you can usually find in fishing shops and some newsagents. Theres a couple pages at the front which explain the whole thing, and the book gives you predicted best fishing times based on tides etc for every day of the year. Also a tide guide (little orange book) which gives you tides for many major towns in WA is handy
