Sometimes, it’s ok to cheat. Just a little bit. Especially when tears of disappointment are on the cards because you’ve been sitting with a line in the water all day with not so much as a tug.
That’s where places like Catch a Crab come in handy. You can pitch up, kids in tow, and be happy in the knowledge there’ll almost certainly be some sort of catch involved. The tour includes feeding the local pelicans, pumping for yabbies, fishing, the chance to help lift the crab pots out of the water before they’re cooked on the boat, and a visit to the oyster farm.
Catch a Crab is located at West Tweed Heads in NSW. Bookings are essential for the tours.07 5599 9972;
