Tinned cat food, soap, road kill.

G'day Kirks

Lots of locals around this part of the world use a handful of dry dog food for Yabbys - seems to work for them so would think it would work for Murray crays as well. Watch for the closed season in NSW waters. Page 6843

kirks,

Carp are considered to be a noxious species and if caught are not to be returned to the water either live or dead. Just be careful using them for cray bait I think you could be breaking the law could pay you to check with your local fishery inspectors to make sure.

The night before you want to go out, go shooting and pop yourself a roo, cut the legs of him before the blood drains and tie them to your nets, alternativley go to your local butcher and get some lambs liverand kidneys, as fresh as you can, the more blood it has the better, they dont want to eat it as much as they dont want it in their area, the same with yabbies, they are herbivioirs and not carnivoirs. You cant even touch Murray Crays untill September so be carefull!!!! if the fisheries get you, you will be driving around in a hyaundai excel because they own your 4by
