How to catch blue swimmer crabs

Blue swimmer crabs are a delicious capture. They live in both open water and up rivers.

In and around Perth, they can be found in the swan river, Cockburn sound and mandurah.

The key to finding these crabs is working closely with the weather and water temperatures.

In the colder months, the crabs generally hang out in deeper water and are a lot slower to react to feeding. As the water warms up, they move into shallower water and a far more aggressive.

Bait is a key factor for success, so don’t go out without a good variety. You can use anything from fish frames to spleen.
