    Think I would take a trip down to the saltworks after work one day this week.

    I suspect the pier would be a good place to hang a crab pot from. Potential source of fresh bait.

    Cant say Ive encountered one after dark,not that ive tried but I cant see why you wouldnt get one.I mean most of the species we get off the east coast seem to be around at all hours.

    What were you using for bait? I haven’t fished off the pier before, spent a lot of time rock hopping round the peninsula, but figure it could be an option with petrol the way it is.
    What do you do if you catch something largeish? Walk it in to the beach or do you have a catch net or something?

    Next thing is, where do you get your crab? How do you rig the crab onto your hook. Like half a crab, shell and all? And, do you mean paddle crabs?
