I reckon the crabs and crayfish are the first course, and this is one envious b50 enthusiast!

good one Roadplough :thumb
i think the monarchists just lost the all the votes of the groups that have been the target of Sir Phil of Australia's "jokes" and jibes/gaffs over the last 60 odd years of contact.
even (the next) Sir Rupert The Ex Aussie is backing away.

my understanding of what Roadplough was on about is,something to do with the reintroduction of the Knight of the realm thing. we got rid of it then it was re-introduced. our extremely popular PM has made a "captains pick" to make Prince Phil the duke of E a knight of the order of Australia. and has embarrassed a lot of people some of which are very close to him. the good Prince has a habit (i would say "writer") of gaffs and jibes and poor jokes. his charitable foundations number in the many, many hundreds in our country, i'm sure he would know and care and follow every one of them.
<201 perhaps i'm too harsh.

Three cheers for Phil the Greek. He's harmless really and very funny, there is far too much PC in the world today.

no worries Steve (unpolitically correct) probably saved me from foot-in-mouth :thumb
That's another beer I owe you <219

Barry you seem overrun by octopuses there, anything to do with the lack of muddies?
Is it unusual?

Might be another case of illegal immigrants displacing the natives ;-)

Roadie the octopus population has always been there, they seen to like to eat the small fish that get in or the blue swimmer crabs and leave the shells and bones <902 <945 <067 the lack of muddys could be from the new guy next door barging in a large excavator and removing all the mud to low tide then breaking up the rock shelf as well until the council, waterways, fisheries and EPA put a stop to it and took hi to the land and environment court <974

First time I came to Australia I went fishing for these crabs near Bribie Island and after catching a few big ones I poked a stick at one and it snapped it easily in its claw. But after a struggle and into the pot it made some very fine eating. Highly recommended :ok .

John if you put them in the freezer for 10 minutes they go to sleep <220 and you can pick them up and they don't drop their nippers off when you put them in the boiling water shock: the last big one was very reluctant to get into the freezer :roll: the first time I try to it just pushed the door open so I had to very carefully get it out :shock: turn it upside down shut the door and tape it shut :uhu 10 minutes later I could hold it and take photos :razz:

Yes David they are great eating
Doug it's taken me a long time to work out that the trap should be closer to the shoreline :oops: I have been setting the trap at the end of the jetty and would catch 1 or 2 crabs each season but about 3 weeks ago I had friends visiting from Paris and there kids wanted to go boating and the tide was low so I moved the trap close to shore so the boat would not hit it and bingo within hours the big 1 nipper crab was caught :mrgreen: and they keep coming :lol:
