Find a farmer

Sat, 2011-01-15 19:17

Danny,

I grew up on a farm in the wheatbelt an nearly all of our dams had yabbies in them, so my advice is find a farmer and give him some love. As for catching them, the quickiest way to to get a prawn net and flip a coin for the deep end. Another way is to make up a 500mm by 500mm square wire net using 1cm chicken wire and fold up the sides by 5cm and tie a guide rope from each corner. Or something for  bit of fun that the kids could get involved in, is tie a piece of meat to a piece of string and sit it about 2 feet off the bank and then slowly bring it in, when you see feelers slowly pull it in, once you have it within striking distance scoop a landing net behind the bait or flick the yabbie out by hand.

Happy Hunting.

Used to get a couple down at goollalel lake in kingsley, not an edible size tho. If you want them or Bream bait they would be a great size.
