Went out today to haul the spider crab nets. Caught about 30kg from about one mile of nets so still not much moving after that turbulent easterly wind last week. All the other inshore boats are reporting the same thing i.e very poor returns be it from nets, hand lines or pots. One boat reported doing 70 pots today for only six crabs whilst another boat hauled three tiers of mackerel nets for only one mackerel!
