Windmills for tailor this time of the year?

I'm heading down to Yalls next weekend and am hoping to squeeze in a tailor session or two.  I've been looking through some old posts and Windmills has come up quite a few times.

Can anyone who knows better give me an idea on whether it's worth trying for tailor there this time of the year, and if so what the ground is like there - is it lures only, baits only etc?  It doesn't look like there's too much sand through there?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Go the little bit further and and fish straight out off the cape. If the wind comes round to the SW you can balloon out to the north.

Tailor should be round at both the Windmills and the cape along with herring but the cape has a chance of sambos,pinkies or a small dhue from the bottom out front. Just take plenty of lead if you are going to bottom fish.

Tailor beaches but this time of year the swell will be too big 90% of the time. It's more of a Summer/Autumn option.

Probably better known as a surf break than a fishing spot but there are Tailor, Salmon, Mulloway, Herring and Skippy coming from there.
