Now all you have to do is teach me how to catch the Crays Sean :D , and I'm a 'girl' (sorry Smooth Cruisers Gal) in croc waters. :roll:

Luckily for those who like their crays, there are no crocks where crays live, as a rule, although there has been some BIG salties seen out on the reef. However where the muddies live is a totally different story. Having said that we water ski in the Cairns inlet and very rarely see one. It is a good incentive for beginners not to fall off.

No offence taken my friend....



Crocs don't scare me at all.....as for sharks...well, don't even get me started!



I made a crayfish thermidore similar to the above, and it was divine!! THere are thousands of variations on the web to suit all types of tastes!!



HAPPY COOKING (and crayfishing!)



:P
