    I was just wondering… . Does anyone go to the Lyttelton wharf to catch crabs? If not, where do you go to catch some bait for Rig?

    I know you can go to New Brighton and use one of those things commonly used by the Korean but is there anywhere else?

    Thanks a lot

    hi paulo,

    southshore spit has always been a good place to catch crabs,at the end of rockinghorse road,

    I use a crab pot and normally catch enough for a fishing session,

    low tide is best, also a good time to collect tuatua,

    50 is the limit for paddle crabs, 150 is the limit for tuatua

    good luck
