Exmouth Prawns

 Gday all,  Firstly wondering when the prawn season is up in exmouth then im Wondering if anyone has caught prawns in the exmouth gulf? 

Ive caugh prawns as a kid over east so not for years. Was thinking of taking a cast net and having a crack if the winds come up offshore but have no idea where to start looking so if someone can point me in the right direction thatd be great!

apparently when they're 'on' if you launch your boat from exmouth station you can drive along until you can see them jumping out of the water - then use a cast net. I've not heard of people having much success in the last two years but if its on then its pretty popular.
