Hey peoples, hope all had a great weekend. I was hoping someone might be able to let me know if the crabbing has opened up in mandurah or is it closed? Also if it is closed when does it open up again???

Cheers guys

I was thinking about giving mandurah a bash on saturday seen the boat is already in the water down there. Might have to bring it up to Perth the following weekend and give it a run around Karakatta.

Typically slow...

Need a longer streak of hot days for the crabs to be any chop.
