Townsville Trip


Recommended Posts

After many years of a good mate sending me photos of all the big fish he catches on the reef off Townsville,The wife and i headed off for a long weekend to catch up and hopefully go out for a fish. We were greeted by 20-30 knot winds which made it impossible to go out.So we headed for the mangrove creeks to do a spot of crabing. Its a worry when you put the boat in and the signs read beware of the crocs.


We kept 3 crabs put 8 back due to the size or being female, very strict rules and everybody obeys if you get caught with under size or females they confirscate all your gear including the boat car and trailer. Only managed a small mangrove Jack never caught one before so it was great. had a great weekend hope to get back up their soon and maybe go after a big one.

Nice sized crabs mate. If you can get out onto the outer reef up there it is a magnificent experience that is totally worth it, weather can be a problem though throughout the year.
