I've had the pots out 1/2 doz times over the past 3 weeks - both harbour & Hope Inlet - muddies around in good numbers, but haven't seen a Rambo this year.

Wierd, cos last year I reckon I was getting close to 50/50 ??

Definitely way down. Agree with Slug. Nearly 50/50 last year.
More so in Shoal Bay and the creeks towards the harbour.
Buffalo creek, Sandy creek behind the hospital and rapid creek.
Into the harbour they seemed to thin out, with creeks on the other side holding even less.
I’d get 10 crabs fom Woods with only 1 or 2 Rambos but 50/50 in Shoal Bay.
This year I’ve hardly seen any, but I think evidence of inter breeding is evident

Been more greens lately but that is in the harbour Matt not the bay. West arm has been producing green one between 17-19cm 😁

Gotta love the harbour! Seafood on tap.

Catching crays down here is a bit of mission, need a boat licence, a cray licence, and the pots aren't cheap either, and the bag limits are tight. Nor are the crays usually as abundant as mud crabs. Muddies must be running around like cockroaches in the harbour and Shoal Bay because heaps of people catch them but these spots keep producing.
