 All shallow flats in the Swan/Canning can hold them at different times.

Cover ground, as much as possible but look for areas where tide/current is pushing into.

Having said that it's been a terrible year for them this year. Hardly any about and there should be everywhere about now.

It may not be you just a crap year.
