And im going to try for a few blue swimmers.

Now reading the rules on crabs=

Is it 2 traps per person or 2 per boat?

Cool thnx.

Yeah  makes sence stupid me. CT =crab Trap. 

So 2 traps per licenced fisher person.

Yeah i know there are lowlifes out there that steal/raid other peoples traps.

Not many fish during the week so Hopefully they will leave mine alone.

On a Weekend they prob wouldnt last an hr without being knocked off or raided. 

Thanx again. ☺

Note, if you are using the witches hat style of net, you are allowed to have 4 per person, and must use HN (for Hoop Net) instead of CN. I'm not sure if there's any local rules against using witches hats in Botany Bay though.
