RE: Crabbing Season
Hi The real crabbing season is January to end of March, you can catch crabs either side of this time span. Mandurah bridge is OK but the locals have"Reserved Spots" during peak times. Just tell them to shove off. Crabs are around now, I caught 20 on 29th December, all good sized blue, but I have a boat and caught them near Pinjarra.
There are 2 methods of crabbing, drop nets used from boats or in deeper water like the Mandurah Bridge. The second method, Scoop Netting is where you can get the most crabs, a scoop net is a wire basket on a broom stick and you walk through the shallow water looking for crabs, be quick and you can scoop them up.Wear shoes whilst doing this. Note there are strict size and catch limits and Fisherises Inspectors can fine you heavily for infringements. Have a look on my Mandurah page.
Good Luck, Mike

Top Restaurant On Port Bouvard Marina
This is a top class restaurant right on the marina, it also caters for "coffee and cake" which is something every tourist enjoys. We had our coffee and cake on the boardwalk section just a metre or two from the water and the perfect place to enjoy the delightful marina view. The service was good, the coffee was hot, and the staff friendly. The young lady who served us had a strong European accent and upon asking her where she was from we found we had visited her homeland, Croatia just 6 months earlier.
