sorry that there is no photographic proof but way back in the late 70's early 80' a crew of us would camp on Dirk Hartog Island just across water from Steep Point.We would catch Tailor up to 20lbs for sport and also barter with the crayboat crews for bait , as it would save them the time/fuel going back to Denham for supplies . I think at the time ,Tom Wartle alias Tom the cheap grocery chain was using the island as a sheep station.Just wish I had photos. :shock: :?
Aaah, retirement.........the hours are good , but the pay is absolute cr.p.

Yeah Sir Thomas Wardle did own Dirk Hartog Station
There were some big tailor to be caught in those days and yes not many of us carried cameras it was mainly fill the freezer trips
I can remember catching a 26lb one at Craddies Bar and a bloke named Brian Smith getting a 31lb tailor there
They were the good old days before the big write ups in mags

Did you put a hook in his back and send him to the depths?

used to troll for little tailor in the swan, and use em for Kingy (Mulloway) bait, whole live or a nice fillet, used to work well in Mosmans.

Got a few good tailor around Stragglers, Carnac and Rottnest too

Got a nice little one last year with my bro at Carnac Island off Perth about 6lb, coupla nice Pinkies as well that night.


Used to catch heaps of Tailor at the Swanbourne drain, but never as big as mentioned in previous posts. Biggest was a 10 pounder i reckon! Still good fun to catch!!
If there is water and it holds fish, then it is fun trying to fool them into eating what you offer!!

Especially when you can see them!

Used to get some good ones off Trigg... AHHH tripod fishin'.. can't remember whe I last saw that..pretty common when i was a 'youngun', get a big roller come through as you're tryin to swing a big one up...Arseup and claret everywhere. Even the memory hurts.
" YOUTH is a GIFT "
"AGE is an ART "
"Doesn't mean you get any smarter..just wrinkled and cracked".

"No angler watches nature in a passive way...He enters into its very existence." (John Bailey...Reflections on a Waters Edge)

"Govern a Family as you would catch a small fish....Very Gently." (Chinese Proverb)

"Only those become weary of angling who bring nothing to it but the idea of catching fish." (Rafael Sabatini...1857-1950)

I pray that one day God sends me a fish so big that, when talking of it...I have no reason to lie.
