Anyone know if you can catch same in the far north?

The NT Rec Fishing brochure doesn't mention them.

In the Kimberleys we use chook pellets and throw nets.

Cheers. John.

Yes you can catch them in the N.Territory but as you move towards East they seem to give way to the red claw which are not as good eating.I caught a lot of cherabin in the Roper river .Image Could Not Be Found

Were caught in "operahouse" type nets using chook pellets in a stocking as bait.Best time is at night.Just through the nets off the bank and check about every 2 hours.Works for me.

cherabin are sooo problamatic


do you use them as prime barra bait
- or eat them?????

being from south i thought you just chucked an opera house net in and cleaned up
- seems they wont crowd in like yabbys so you have to continously pull the net and get one at a time or use a throw net

I caught a real chuncky one in the Endeavour River at Cooktown in 07 - used an opera house net - four that size would have been a meal for the two of us - the locals called it a Mitchell River prawn - only thing is, that area is prime croc territory - won't be fishing even off so called 'safe' banks there anymore (bloke taken there in 08).

Usually lots of Cherabin at the Roper. Off there next weekend, heard the Barra are on the go! Fingers crossed! We use opera house pots with sard soap. If you use fish/meat the croc's will eat your pot.

LOL, it's just an old time hard soap. Use a new soft type and it will dissolve in no time. A quarter to a half a block will last a couple of days.
Shall i post the pic's of next weeks fishing trip just to make you jealous?
LOL
Have fun!
