Sand crabs in PPB?

Post by laoganma » Wed Jun 15, 2022 10:25 pm

So I know that Lakes Entrance is famous for its crabbing, particularly its sand crabs, but surely there are other places around PPB with sand crabs, or really any other species of crab worth eating, so I don’t have to drive 4 hours out to the Lakes every time I want some freshly caught crabs for dinner?

sand crabs are pretty small, do you get much meat off them?

I have caught some pretty big ones before in the past with plenty of meat on them 👍🏻

Do you reckon I’d get any off the piers?
