  1. Hi fellow raiders Went to a shop the other day to buy 4 new crab traps to try out in Botany Bay. I've never caught a crab on a line or used a crab trap so I'm a complete newbie at this. Planning to take out 2 traps using old fish in an old onion bag as bait. (Only taking 2 as I've read people steal them if you don't keep an eye on them ) Would love to get some expert tips around best bait, best time to go crabbing and how long I should soak the trap! Any tips would be awesome! I know asking for location is a hard ask but if anyone can share a good place in Botany to try out the traps that would be awesome. PM me if you want to keep it quiet - i promise not to share. The only crabbing knowledge I have is from watching 'The deadliest catch' so i would think crabbing in Botany would be much easier! haha Thank you guys in advance!
  2. 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!!
  3. Hey guys The other day I had some blue swimmer and it was lovely! Since then I have been obssessed with catching my own crabs. Only problem is I'm land based and dont know a whole heap about how to catch them. If you guys could give me some tips about locations, traps or bait it would much appreciated Thanks guys!
