Mandurah Crabs Landbased

 Hi all, booked a place down in Madora Bay and really keen to get into some crab with either the nets or scooping - can anyone help me with where they are at the moment?

Thanks

Any where in the estuary, best around the river mouth of the Murray and serpentine. At night with headlight they seem to be thicker

 Easiest location for you will be the end of Sticks Boulevard Erskine (walk out along the bank to get to the main estuary) or Dorothy Road Falcon plenty of parking, went last week at 5am and got 10 decent size ones within an hour. Best to go early as there are strong Southerly winds all week which will decrease visibility
