We also managed to put together a good number of evening trips for those in hot pursuit of some excellent smoothhound action. June, we do tend to concentrate on the hounds, after all they’re only here around 6 weeks in total whilst they follow the moult of the crabs. When moulting & growing into bigger shells the crabs ooze a pungent yellow liquid […]
