Unlucky on the fishing front!.. But to get over 20 crab in your pot is great going. I was always under the impression that you don't get many peelers/softies in pots as they don't feed when in the peeling stage. Obviously I'm wrong, well done :thumbs:

about half way up the pier on the left hand side, there are no upstands/ pier legs, swing it so the pot goes under the pier, couple of makkie cut in half inside the pot and you should be right on the money, pot was in the water for about 30 mins. hope this helps
