 Yeah I thought so too feral. I did hear they were being caught now but was surprised as its usually around April may. I suppose there's only 1 way to find out and that's to have a Crack this week end. Nothing better than a feed of blueies  and a cold beer. ☺

Yep, a mate got half a dozen recently on a very quick outing. Put in a solid effort and you should get a good feed.

 Well I went out yesterday and caught 20 in 1.5hrs. Some of the biggest blueies I've seen too with some being 30 mm over size. All full of meat too.
