Was out crabbing the other night, not having a great deal of luck, so wandered into the shallows trying to find them, but ended up finding heaps of cobbler rolling around in the mud instead. Took the crabbing gear back to the car and grabbed my gidgy. Within 10 minutes, I had 3 big cobbler in my bag. Easily could've got my bag limit of 8 within half an hour, but thought I'd better try out the few that I had for eating/freezing quality first. Ended up with 720 grams of fillets, but could've been more if I was better at filleting them. Had 3 fillets for dinner last night and froze the remaining 3 for a later date. Quite a tasty fish. And good fun catching them as well. Biggest was 560mm, smallest 500mm. Haven't put pictures up here in a long time, so hopefully it works...

 Yeah I double checked the bag limit before getting back in the water because I expected it to be 2 for some reason. Though this was near Mandurah so was never under the ban
