Michael’s team did well at Middle Ground off Cronulla

We picked up a tailor, trolling on our way home. Tailor are greenish blue or blue on the back and the sides and belly are silvery. Their fins are pale green, tinged with yellow and the base of the pectoral fins are bluish. Both jaws have numerous strong, sharp teeth and the lower jaw protrudes. There are 2 dorsal fins, the first with 7 or 8 short spines and the second with soft rays and a higher profile than the first dorsal. The rayed anal fin is almost as long as the second dorsal fin. Tailor have forked tails with broad lobes.
Total catch was above average with a mixed box of reef fish.
