Fri, 2021-07-23 16:05

 Cockburn Sound crabbing has been closed for over 10 years now!  Every year I contact the Dept of Fisheries( Jodie O'Malley) to get the latest updates, as I love my crabbing.

Last year the reason given according to there "re-search":  "Not enough males big blues."

No idea when they will decide to open Cockburn Sound?

Bloody long closure!

When fishing for gummies, caught three in three drops last time out and they were all BIG blues .....hence there doesn't appear to be a shortage but I bet LJ can throw more light on how many he has been seeing when occy hunting

What you watched here looks amazing that we have such a healthy population of Crabs right?......Wrong....You are witnessing an environmental disaster taking place and every crab in this video will be dead in the next 48hrs, Crab season in my backyard lasts for 48hrs and if you are not aware you miss out till next winter crab season, I watch very closely what is going on cause I don't want to miss my small window of getting a crab for dinner.

Edit: Just editing video of the 2021 Crab season wich was......devistating as usual but entertaining?

Tue, 2021-08-24 07:40

2022 will be the year I give diving for them by hand a red hot crack. I gave it a shot when I was in Mandurah for a week over xmas but the lack of crabs, strong arvo winds and amount of boats in the water made the visibility near impossible to get a fix on one. Now that my brother is back in Perth we'll get the old man on deck s a spotter and tow each other across the flats with a rope.
