Sounds like the Swan is the go this season so far. Been to Manduarah a few times and a lot of crabs around but all undersize. They need to undergo another moulting phase, and the ones that are size down there are very lean. The pics of crabs I've seen caught in the Swan are pretty impressive.

And someone mentioned the smell of Mandurah crabs in a previous post. The few crabs I've got from Manduarah this season gave off a funny smell when cooking.


If we can hit that bullseye, the rest of the dominoes will fall like a house of cards. Checkmate.

Plenty of good size crabs in Mandurah at the moment. Went out in the boat drop netting 2 days ago and got 10 sized crab in 1 string that I pulled. I went on the Coodanup side of the estuary. Had enough crab for me and the family so went up the murray bream fishing and got 3 good sized bream. All released back to the water

So many fishing spots. Not enough sickies!!!!!!!
