  4. What's the Best time for catching blue swimmers crabs in Botany Bay?
  5. With all this beautiful weather we have been blessed with recently, i couldn't help but go for a fish in the hacking, just after midday. Being my lazy self and having old frozen pilchards in the freezer, they were my bait of choice. Unfortunately with dozens of boats driving past i was unable to nab any squid (losing two yamashita jigs), whilst losing the only fish i hooked on the rocks which looked like a bream, forcing me to walk home with only two blue swimmer crabs. The crab were thrown in the freezer, as soon as i stepped foot in the front door, to numb their senses, while i looked up how to prep my crab. After killing the crab humanely, it was easy to prep the crab with some help from youtube. The crab was tossed in a wok with vegetable oil, garlic, chilli, oyster sauce, soy, sugar, butter and black pepper corns and if i were to say so myself, it was so flavoursome and possibly the best crab I've ever eaten (slight hint of bias). All in all an awesome feed from an unproductive but good day fishing.
  6. Good Morning All, I'm Currently looking at buying some crab traps for the Hawkesbury river so my brother and can drop them off before we go out fishing and pick them up on the way back in. This is the first time im doing this so i just have a few questions which i was hoping some of you guys might be able to help me out with? Firstly i have brought 2 rectangle pots that i will be using. I have heard theirs some modifications you can do to these pots so the craps cant get out as easily? just wondering what these modifications were if anyone knows? Secondly just wondering where would be the best place to drop them off? any tips or hints on where to dump them and also maybe what type of bait is best to use? I've also read up on People saying you should check your pots every 2-3 hours just wondering if this is correct? Any advice would be a great help and very much appreciated. As time goes on ill do my best to share results and little things i have learnt to hopefully help other people out. Thanks Guys!!
