Sounds good jf, might give that a go, certainly not having much luck along the metro beaches. Are the big blues crabs?

I heard there were some prawns showing up in some places too.... Not that I would mention it here on a public forum.

I tend not to share these little secrets to all as well. Except for this yabbie spot i found the other day. It needs more fishing done there to make them a bit bigger :)

Eh, nothing that hasn't been mentioned on fishing forums and in the Sunday Times. Yeah good size and lots down Mandurah too. I was gonna get a torch and my speargun until I found out you can spearfish in the Swan. I've since found out you can't speargun cobbler in the ocean... whoops, better hide the photo of me emerging from Avalon waters victorious

Threw a line in from the jetty next to the freeway in como. Few blowies about and one small bream, sand worms were getting eaten pretty quick.

No it was probably a bit optimistic, tried again last night over at freshwater bay - had a bit more luck with bream but nothing big enough for dinner :cry:

It would have been lovely out fishing last night with the full moon but I don't think that makes it the best time for catching fish.
