Tailor and Trevally (14-Sep-08)
Took time in lieu on Monday after a long week’s work and went to go fish with my brother and dad down at Clifton Gardens. The weather had a beautiful spring feel about it, but the wind was quite strong at about 20km/h winds. We started at about 10am but the action was dead. Not a single bait fish in sight. After waiting until about 2pm, the action finally picked up. The trevally were schooling, all about the 25cm – 30cm size. They all put up a great fight on the light gear we had, and after dumping many back, we were able to come away with two legals at 32 and 35cm. My brother was also able to hook up on a legal tailor with a soft plastic, a Berkley Gulp 6″ sandworm cut in half. Towards the end of the day, we managed to get 3 squid, and put them out fresh in hope for a kingfish, but no luck there.
