After some time at that spot went by without catching a winner, we decided to head further up the river to find somewhere to anchor for the evening.
The top deck of the boat was the perfect place to watch the river go by. It's amazing that we're just an hour or so drive away from Sydney itself and you've got such unspoiled nature right there. Much of the river is national park area and only a few houses dot the shoreline.
The next morning dawned a bit cloudy again, but some bacon on the bbq on the back of the boat got everyone ready for the day ahead.
We broke the silence of the morning with the dingy off to check the crab traps, and much to our amazement there were three crabs in the trap! One of them was a bit too small so we put it back in and then immediately started drooling looking a head to chili mud crabs for dinner.

|Just not your day, buddy|
|Chris got drabs, the good kind|
You might remember us gushing about mud crabs in our NT adventures, but since then we've discovered that these delicious crabs are $50/kg which makes them a special occasion type of meal. The large crab on the right was 1.3kgs itself, so these two crabs certainly paid for those crab traps!
