Blackwall Reach night dive for prawns

Blackwall Reach night dive for prawns

Wednesday 2 September 2020

Keen divers joined us at Blackwall Reach

On Wednesday the 2nd we took the night dive to Black Wall Reach, with a couple of keen divers ready to head out we didn’t waste any time getting into the water. The crab ban had just started so we decided to go for some prawns.

When we dropped down we had a little bit of current at 6m but when we got down to 10m it disappeared. Prawning started slow but then picked up pretty fast, it didn’t take long before we were catching 3 in a row. The viz was nice for the river but it was a bit chilly. 

After about 40mins in the middle of the river we made our way back to the entry point which took about 10mins, catching prawns on the way. Once back in the shallows we spotted a couple of cool nudibranchs in about a foot of water. After that we headed back to our cars to check out the nights catch.
