Manboor (Ghost Crab) by Eddie James

This design is adapted from my multi-crab design, Crayfish (joodarn), Ghost crab (manboor), and the moon, which is all about catching crabs and crays according to the moons and the tides.

The moon tells us what to go fishing for, and when we should go fishing. We don't look at tide charts.

In this design we’ve got Manboor - the ghost crab. Manboor dig holes up on the sandy beach - we use them as bait to catch fish. You have to dig up the manboor and scoop them out of the sand, or as they come up you just tap them, hook them, and throw them out on a hand line!

At full moon people go to the fish traps. They’ve been round way before my time - the old Bardi stone trap - people are still using it today! Mainly for fish or stingray. When the tide is low, the big rocks trap fish in.
