Why am I picking up females?
There is a different season for male and female crays, and the female season has closed... So today my total catch was female (I caught 3). However James kept the honor of the family alive with his first Flinders cray. He swam back to the boat with it clutched tightly in both hands. It weighed 3.3kg.
That's the old South African KZN measure against it.
The guy we dived with kindly gave us one of his.
Only problem is our biggest pot - 12.5 litre
And B had a hard day cutting up two wallaby hindquarters we'd been given... So now the freezer is truely groaning. This is good... but I think we're going to need a bigger freezer.
