Finally my luck changed this arve. Soccer till lunch, plus jobs to get done, then finally hit the beach around 3pm, but had to be back by 5pm.
Snagged a small tailor then paddled a bit more and hooked the big one. I had just turned on the Gopro again and caught it all on film; will post once edited.
I had to do some serious surgery to extract my hooks from deep in his mouth and was probably lucky i had loose drag as the wire was precariously hanging (and coiled) out the side of its mouth
Fun times and feels gr8 to find the mojo in Magic May.

Just a thought... which species pleases you most to catch... hoo, tuna, cobe, macs, jewie? Tailor wouldn't be on the list, 'cos you use them for bait!
