Great Tailor Off Noosa

Tailor are About Right Now in the Noosa Estuary
We wanted to share this photo of reader Jemma L with her Queensland Tailor, caught in the outer Woods Bay near the mouth of the Noosa River, Qld on the week end. Tackle included whole frogmouth pilchards on ganged hooks which proved ideal to catch this lovely Tailor.

Woods Bay is an areay of settled water near the mouth of the Noosa River, Qld and a good place for fish to come in and find food. Anything can show up in Woods Bay at times, from Jacks to Mackerel but Trevally, Queenfish and Tarpon are the mainstays of flyrodders, usually around dusk. Wandering about the bay with flies and lures can produce some good sport.

Reports are that in the Noosa River estuary this week end, Bream, Flathead, Whiting, Tailor and Trevally were very active on the run-in (especially near the top of the tide) so if you're nearby, you migth want to get yourself out there!
