Cray season

Went out for two dives this week and only managed a handfull of crays. Seems to be a few around and some absolute monsters among them. Seems to be a lot of reports that a lot of them still have soft shells, Has anyone encounterd this yet, And hows everyone else going with the cray catches.

Had to work on Wednesday, but lucky enough to have had a dive buddy waiting for me for a mad dash off Preston Beach at 5:25 pm

Between the two of us picked up 10 crays and shot a dhuie in 10 metres, in 20 minutes

Out of the 10 crays, 7 whites, all good size.

Would have seen 20 crays all up, low light and being a bit silty made it hard to get more then one out of each hole.

By the time I got home, washed the dive gear and cooked a fillet of dhuie it was 10:30pm A long day but a good one.
