In Australia we went crabbing on Grange jetty. We spent a total of 6 hours and caught 5 sand crabs but we had to throw 4 back because they were too small .
Everyone around us caught blue swimmers.Twice someone next to us caught 2 blue swimmers in one net. After you catch your first crab it gets addictive and you end up staying all night .On our 2 & 3rd time a person gave us two blue swimmers out of pity. I preferred the meat in the claw to the body meat. When everyone was done with there claws they gave them to me and I pulled the tendon which made the claw open and close.
