    I know this reply isn’t much help! My eldest son, now living overseas, would swim out off the beach with his wet suit on and come back within a few minutes with a huge crayfish. He seemed to be able to catch one from from just about anywhere. When we camped at Goose Bay, near Kaikoura, some of the campers would drop a cray pot or two over night. Sometimes they would be successful other times not. I have also been out on crayfishing boats when they have been lifting their pots. Many pots would come up with nothing in them; while one or two pots would catch quite a few!

    These no guarantee that H&F has them.. Depending on the exact location it might be worthwhile, try and drop it near rocky terrain.

    we are going to peraki beach/station on the southern part of the pensulia, it is a private beach so hopefully hasnt had to much of a pilligaging- will prob borrow a wetsuit and go for a splash but thought a pot could be good if water is to cold ( i can be a pansy sometimes) also might be abit of fun for the kids

    some of the warehouses sell colapasable cray pots , not te folding square things or the opera house ones but they are a bit bigger and more heavy duty, think they are about 50 bucks each

    Had a look on google earth, Try and set it towards the outer points of the bay. I suspect there should be crayfish there.
