Mandurah Crabbing

 Looking at going crabbing in Mandurah tomorrow morning. Are they good for scooping this time of year or are they all undersize (like last time i went in mid december)? Has anyone been there lately, whats it like?

-Also, any good scooping spots?

Still Plenty

Bit late now since you would have already been but there are still plenty around if you can find the right spots. Been buried in the sand wherever you can find a patch in amongst the weed. Shagging the little jennies so not too difficult to scoop when you find them!

head towards the remote areas of the inlet and estuary and look for big sand bars, went out a month ago and have never seen the crabbing that good before, bagged out in half an hour scooping.
