Swan and Shark Bay blueys

 headed to Denham and the surrounds over the Xmas period. the wind was howling 24 hours a day for 9 days, then calm the day before we left. still managed to get out and about, including a great day 4x4 up to Cape Peron...what an awesome part of the world that place is.

due to wind, the fishing was basically non existent, however managed a good feed of crabs near Monkey Mia.

on sunday, we hit our honey hole in the Swan to bag out on some big boys. biggest went 175mm across carapace.

 Top catch, I find it interesting how the swan river blues have such long claws, the blue swimmers up here in Hedland look like the ones in the top pic
