hi benji64, just moved to St Lawrence and haven't fished or crabbed the area as yet. I have seen some of the crabs caught around the area and are bigger than anything I've seen! i have also been told a fair bit of "share farming' happens, so keep an eye on your pots!!!!
There is also a big green zone that starts at Charron point and heads north and east.
Best of luck and hope you do well:)

fuglee cape palmerston is most definately my favourite place, excellent fishing, camping and crabbing and if you get a couple of Queenies around the rocky headlands you can use the frames to bring up the big gropers that live at the cape creek camp beach, if its blowing your protected from the winds if it's calm weather you've got plenty of islands in close that fish well got plenty of places to roam and around no matter what the weather and also one of the best fishing spots at hide tide is right there at the camp it is a little piece of paradise and i go there quite often and never left without a good feed touch wood.

Cheers Leon
