Those flower crabs aren't a bad catch, I do see people catching mud crabs from Sembawang jetty before but it's not often that they do. I wonder if we can still do crabbing at the big canal further down beside the bottle tree park. That canal was full of mud crabs before they cleared it many years back. :(

Hi Peace :)
Yeahhh, a regular crabber there told me tat once he caught a big mud crab there and it actually struggled alot and almost made a big hole in his bento net.. but sembawang jetty's crabs has decreased, also became smaller in size....probably due to the reclaiming of land.. To get a mud crab in sembawang, i think it really depends on luck.. As for bottle tree park, i haven't tried ther yet.. Might be going, see my luck :nod:

Those are very nice catches there. Wak Hassan and simpang canal used to be a very good spot for crabbing before it was cleared. It was also an extremely good spot for catched prawns as well. Long ago, along that canal were 3 prawn ponds. Inside Simpang (on the opposite side of the canal) are more prawn ponds that are still in shape unlike the one now at the canal which has become a jogging track.
