Here at Perth Lobster Pots, we are proud to provide both commercial and recreational lobster fishermen (and women) with all things lobster or cray fishing in the Land Down Under.
There are dozens of lobster species in and around the Australian coastal waters, but the ones you’ll most frequently trap using pots are the Southern rock lobster, the Western rock lobster, and the Eastern rock lobster.
The good news is, all lobster stocks are sustainable, thanks to excellent partnerships between the Australian government, scientists and all those who fish for this spiny delight around our coastal reefs.
If you’re interested in catching Snow crab (aka Crystal crab), our fishing traps can get the job done too. This unique species of crustaceans is endemic to Western Australia and is widely regarded as the best-tasting crabs you’ll eat in your life.
If you’re looking for some in-depth information on all things cray fishing, we’ve got you covered.
On our blog, we aim to let you in on every expert tip and trick you’ll need to land yourself a couple of good-size lobsters the next time you take your boat out.
Topics we write about range from choosing the right pot, rules and regulations for commercial vs recreational lobster fishing, understanding the law around cray fishing, how to rig a pot and float, and insider knowledge on what bait works best.
We’ll point out changes to lobster fishing seasons, handy data on quotas, and alert you to a sale or new product information. We’ll also show you the best method or technique – as used by the pros – for catching crays and bringing them to the family table to enjoy.
At the end of the day, catching lobsters is exciting but can also be a daunting adventure for newbies. Lobster Pots Perth is always here to help you make informed decisions, keeping it a fun and easy hobby for recreational fishers, and income-generating for those who catch lobsters for a living.
That said, lobster fishing can be quite an expensive hobby. There’s the boat, licences, fishing gear, fish finder or sounder, not to mention bait, floats, line, rope, gloves and containers for your catch. And of course, something cold to drink.
But we believe it’s worth it. To make your choice of cray pot easier, we are proud to offer our moulded plastic pots that cost about half what you’d pay for a heavy timber pot. They’re durable, clean super easy and there’s virtually nothing to maintain. Best of all, you can buy our green pots straight off our website or drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re excited to have you and your fisherman friends here on our site and hope to inspire you with every lobster-related story posted. Check out our new posts today to find out everything you need to know about cray fishing.
