Just glad this lake got a top up this year as it was getting pretty low. The others I checked , one looked ok and the reports have been good but the water level down and too much deep sand to get through with a commodore, the other is just a puddle. So this lake might be our only option this year :dontknow:

Heard a rumour so the mate and his brother and I headed out to a swamp/lake. Didnt take the boat and we just waded it in knee deep water. Yabbies were slow with never more than 4 in a net, but they are big
Gonna eat well tonight :D
And after wading aroung 30 nets 7 times will also sleep well tonight :wink:

Took the boat to this swamp today and got stuff all. 20 yabs from 3 pulls of 20 nets. So we went back to old faithful which was on the way home and ended with a great feed. Some big fellas came up from old faithful as well which was different

Garlic butter yabs, fresh asparagus and homebrew. Love summer :D

Went out to the usual lake this morning and got a feed but they are finally slowing up. Not surprising with the tonnes of them that must have been pulled there over the last two years :)

Charlie, I haven't seen much on your yabbie catches recently. Have you got your own thread for it?
