Karratha Mud Crabs - Good Story

Thought Id give some feedback.......

So I posted on here a week or so ago asking Karratha locals for info on where to get mud crabs in Karratha as I was up there for 3 days for work and had an afternoon free. Thanks heaps to Dodgey (Jon) on here he responded that I could borrow his tinny and point me in the right direction on where to go. Blown away by the generosity I grabbed his number and gave him a buzz when I was up there. Lent me his boat, nets and gave me the direction / info on where to go. Headed around his house to pick up his boat as he wasnt in town and had a yarn to his young bloke who obviously loves fishing too. Hooked up the boat, did exactly what he said and scored ourselves 7 Mud crab in a few hours. 

Thought id post this story on here as this is exactly what this forum is about. I have been a member for almost 10 years and constantly come here for info, guidence and a good read rather than going on SookBook. This is what this forum is about, not bickering and having a go at people because your opinion doesnt coincide with theirs.... Help fisho's out, pay it forward. I know I will be doing exactly that!!

Once again thanks heaps Jon. Really appreciate it
