Cockburn Sound crab closure

The seasonal closure of the Peel-Harvey Estuary to crabbing ended on 31 October. However, remember that the crabs in Cockburn Sound are still protected from fishing until 14 December (inclusive).

They should be turning up in the river soon .

A few weeks back I was cruising through the sound in the 2m weed/sand areas

The wind was down and you could see multitudes of big blues who'd actually look up at the boat and put their claws up

 

It'll go off for crabs this year in the sound once the ban lifts

I'm thinking of having a look on the western side of the Garden island causeway there must be some come under the bridge.

Was out with the kids looking for whiting on the southern flats and pulled up 3 nice blues.

i think it is quite

I think crab wise it must be quiet around rockingham , I haven't seen the pro crab boat "Timezone" at bent street for ages (I go down there a couple of times a day) , but he may be launching at another ramp as it is a nightmare getting out from bent st at the moment

update

went on Saturday as the wind looked better than Sunday

Managed 2 strings but because it was boring changed tact and went fishing in the cut.

We had 2 size berried Jenny's, and about 20 very little ones to show for the effort.

Probably best to wait.
