Crabfest

From all reports it sounds like crabfest was a bit of a fizzer this year, apparently the crabs have done some sort of disappearing act from what I've heard!!!! Bit strange, wonder whats happened to them all.......

Bet there has been more than one fisho stop at the local fish shop on his way home to buy a few fish and claim them as his catch so the missus will let him out fishing again next weekend. Boys will be boys!
