Watch out for them blue-ringed occys crayfisho's!

 Went out of Hillaries yesterday arvo with my brother to pull his pot. On the way out I was telling him about the many sightings of blue-ringed occys in pots and I was a bit surprised he had not heard of any of the reports. He was bare foot driving the boat and i told him he should put his shoes on before we pull the pot onboard. Anyway we get to his pot and pull it, had a good look around and in the pot for blue-rings couldnt see any so baited it and we both lifted the pot and tossed it over. Guess what dropped off the bottom of the pot and landed right next to his BARE!! foot?  yep - a good sized blue-ring about 5cm across and squirming towards his foot! As he jumped back from it I squashed it with my shoe and he just looked at me in disbelief saying  FUUUCCKKK at the same time. So - good lesson learnt by him. After about 5 minutes into the trip back to the marina I came up behing him while he was concentrating driving in the rough conditions and pinched the side of his foot - wish i had filmed his reaction! would have loved to have posted it on here for all to see  - got him a beauty ha ha  anyway watch out for them blue-rings boys  cheers dave
