I finally got out for the first time in weeks. Have upgraded my 4.1 open to a 2006 stacer 4.8 nomad SC with 60 4st. Took it out today for first run and much much nicer. Was restricted to early afternoon so had a look at north wall wash without too much hope, first cast bang a mid 40s tailor and nice start to the boat. Next cast another, then another very nice start to the boat!!! Ended up a great session for the next hour, 40-50cm on XR10 and boat well and truly blooded. My first real north wall wash session this winter. Good to see some tailor about, there were some larger too I dropped several that were going harder. Gordo
Yes agree fellas great live bait but always happy with a tailor feed, family just devoured a heap of fillets, the kids love it, even the mrs has come to enjoy it (she used on only eat $30kg sea perch). Have a great tailor curry, if anyone interested will post it, i was a bit suss but it is sensational.
Sean there’s so many ink marks on every jetty, pontoon it seems theres a heap of squid around, i havent targeted this winter but think you could really do well.
Gday Mark, sure here it is, a mate got it off a WA fish forum. I also add diced potato at the start.
750g Tailor fillets, skinned and cut into bite sized pieces
2 Apples, peeled, cored and chopped
1 medium Onion, diced
3 tspns Curry powder
1 cup Dry white wine
1 tspn Salt
1/2 cup Whipping cream
2 tspns Cornflour
1/2 cup Sultanas
1. Heat half of the butter in fry pan or wok. Add apple and onion, sprinkle with half the curry powder and saute over medium heat until the onion is transparent
2. Add wine, cream and remainder of butter and stir. Then add cornflour and continue to stir to thicken slightly
3. Introduce the fish and the rest of the curry powder. Simmer over medium heat until the fish is cooked (approx 8-10 minutes)
4. In the last minute, stir in the sultanas Serve with rice
Even if your land based the tailor are going nuts off the beach between Phillip park and the SPJ, then also the SPJ itself….big numbers off the jetty last night, up to 50cm. almost everyone bagged out….
