Last weekend we left the pots in over night and back on the water first light to check them. It’s was freezing but had a great couple hours on the water with the kids on breakfast duties.

Share farmers cutting 4 cable ties but we still managed 6 crabs .

Anyone else catching crabs..

Balou, we got 7 size bucks the other weekend during daytime on building tides in middle arm. Heading out there Friday night and doing all nighter as we too had sharefarmers last time during the day cutting the cable ties holding my jewie heads in pots. So I will be sitting with my pots all night this time round. Will post how we go

Nice crabs.

Where I live in (Near Rockhampton) it gets pretty cold in winter, so the crabs all disappear about May, and wont stick their noses out of their holes until about Christmas.
