New moon will have fish biting

TODAY is the start of the new moon, and anyone who follows the lunar patterns will know how active the fish and crabs are for the next three days.

It's a good opportunity to catch some before the crabs go into their holes in the winter months.

This means it is the perfect time to get your pots in the water while you're wetting a line.

It is important to remember your way around the waterways if you're crabbing at night because the moon will not offer much light.

It is also essential to know the bag limits and size restrictions of both crabs and fish.
