Today = crab day! We crawled out of our tents/swags and headed to the local cafe for a pretty good brekky before Trevor took us past Crazy Kevs house (an old local who Trev spent many days drinking and crabbing with) and onto a tour of Derby, where we saw where Trev used to live and work and a few other landmarks. We took the cars onto the jetty which is a big loop and is on massive pylons as they have king tides up here. Low tide today was only about 1.2m and high tide got to over 11m, the amount of water that comes rushing in is incredible. We next went for a drive on the salt marsh and into some sandy tracks for a bit of fun. We stopped to grab some fishing tackle before heading to Crazy Kevs to get the boat hitched. Kev had a 4m tinny which could hold four of us with 10 crab pots so Trev, Matt, Jamie and I got to take the boat out today. We launched the boat on fairly flat waters and headed over to the recommended area. It was pretty busy going baiting the pots then dropping them, then turning around and pulling them up, trying not to let any crabs jump out. Most pots had two to three crabs in them which we tipped into an ice bath in the esky. It was super thrilling to pull up the pots not knowing what was at the other end and we did lose a few crabs in the bottom of the boat, which meant we would have to lift our feet up so our toes didn't get pinched. Jamie and Trevor both got attacked at one stage as we had so many crabs the esky was overflowing and we couldn't get them to stay in the esky, it was hilarious! In total we would have caught about 40 crabs, we threw any undersized ones back and ended up with 26 that we brought back to crazy Kevs to cook up for dinner. I got to learn how to clean the crabs properly and we boiled a few and put the rest on the BBQ, they were delicious. We all sat around Kevs backyard listening to funny stories from Trev and Kev and feasting on crabs, I made it through two whole crabs, Jamie did three! We wallowed our way back to camp and crawled into bed for a fairly early night.
