Mixed bag

 Bit shitty out pulling the pots this morning but bringing back 3 x southerns and 1 western cray makes it all worthwhile.

Consider the southerns by far the better eating  cray by for so not complaining with recent results

 The western is the one on the right with the two larger horns , the others have a set of 3 horns with one in the middle and lower down from the outer ones

 How do you measure the Southern Carnarvonite ?

Are they the same size limits as the Western 

Cheers

Sizing

Thu, 2022-03-03 13:06

 To measure southerns, there is a small gap in front of the centre horn, from there to the back of the carapace has to be over 98.5mm

Luckily haven't had one that small that I have had to measure
