Crayfish Galore found in Carpenters Rocks South Australia

Although the sea is deamed dangerous by some, As getting out of the breakers into the calmer water isn't as easy as it appears from the passengers seat. Either way many of the local fisherman around this small seaside village along side Mount Gambier in south Australia, are in some way shape or form related or business relations. There are about 10 or more boats mainly owned by family business that makes an amazing amount of money out of this tiny little fishing cove. I have been diving off the side of a small vessel along the rocks and there are endless abolone attached to the rough surface as the conditions make them hard to get to, without a few scratches. The crayfish is much easier to catch and you can usually spot the orange weedlike feelers poking out from underneath the reef. They are very scary when you first greab them because they flap all about but aslong as you are careful for the spikes they are not dangerous. Carpenters Rocks is a favourite fishing spot of mine, and hope to be enjoying another family holiday there one day. Has anyone else visited Mount gambier?
