        northern nsw Stingrays & Crab Fishing

        Hey All, I hope you are all well! I am new to this site and thought I would join some sort of forum to learn more about fishing etc. Recently I got my first boat and started doing some off-shore fishing in Hexham NSW. I've been catching about six stingrays a day when I go fishing, I don't know much about them so just been throwing them back. So I have a few questions: 1. What is the legal size and limit for Stingrays in NSW? I checked DPI but it didn't have them listed: https://www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/fishing/recreational/fishing-rules-and-regs/saltwater-bag-and-size-limits 2. I know that the ray has four pads of meat (two top and two bottom), but there is a lot of waste... Do you have any recommendations on what to do with the rest of the ray? 3. Is ray a good bait for crabbing? If it is, would the scraps work (Bones, body and head)? 4. Since I have never caught one to keep before what methods do you recommend when it comes to killing? I was thinking: - Hook Ray - Net Ray - Use bolt cutters and cut the rays tail off (throw tail away) - Kill Ray (need to learn best method for this) Of course, if Ray isn't legal to keep I won't and it also seems worth keeping if its a big ray. I would rather not catch them if we have to waste the rest of the ray for the amount of meat. But since I go crabbing, if I can use the scraps for crabbing then I think that should be okay. Any tips, advise and the rest would be wonderful. Thanks, Mark.D
