Re: NSW Mud Crab

The crabs are still in PPB. I was snorkelling 2 weeks back off Sorrento and pulled the boat up over what looked like a reefy section in about 3m. Jumped over the side and there was no reef, just thousands and thousands of crabs writhing on the bottom. I caught one to show the folks on the boat that...

Welcome back Rixter! After eating mudcrabs, blue swimmers just don't cut it anymore! Do you eat it with any sauce or plain? Chilli mudcrab is really popular in Malaysia and Singapore!

Re: Hazelwood Pondage
