 i find it amazing that none of the folk pic up or stand on a blue ring octopus, cause it seems that very few have any idea of the dangers

Good times. Getting bowled across the reef and seeing how many ‘new Australians’ you can take out is worth getting out of bed for. 


Does anyone know where the love of god goes, when the waves turn the minutes to hours?

So what’s that, just 4x1 hour days? I thought the abalone season went for 6 or 7 months?

I would say ( guess) 50 percent can't swim. Anything you have to mince up and put back together to eat is crap. Many many years ago the where bait ( top bait at that). good to watch people collecting them. Let's hope no accidents this year.
