I am going after some Murray Crayfish....

I have never gone after them before. So, of course I went to Youtube to get some tips. So looks like the same as crabs or yabbies.

Just have to get a couple of nets next time I go to Wagga...and a couple of cans of cat food

That's pretty cool mate, will we be seeing a video of your hunt?
I wonder if you could get them diving. The water is probably not clear enough to see anything, eh

Do you know how hard it is to do a "selfie video" of a Murray cray hunt ???

I will see what I can do....If I drown it's your fault !!!!

I have got my net...

A week and a half ago the river was not much more than a creek...No water...So I went to the river yesterday and it is now in flood !!...I am not kidding...It is right up over the grass !! Apparently the Tumut hills have had a lot of rain, so the river will come up even higher.

So I just have to wait for the river to go back down to "fishable" levels...

So, this morning I took the dog out for his morning run. I called into the shop on the way home...No one said anything to me. But it was pretty obvious that I was the only person in the supermarket not wearing a mask...Apparently at 6pm last night the entire state went into restrictions and lockdown (for pretty much all of Sydney and Wollongong)...Why was I not told about this ??...I was planning on going to Nowra next week. But with the Gong in lockdown it is pretty much a certainty that Nowra will be next !!

I haven't read through all the restrictions yet. But it looks like I can still go fishing....depending of course on what happens next !!

Well...There has been a lot of "next" happening !!!

Anyway...I have put the net in 3 times and nothing !! I tried 2 different brands of cat food !!...So I don't know, maybe I am holding my nose wrong or something ??? But then again this is the first time I have gone after Murray cray. So it might just be a case of trial and error...

More rain coming in later this week. But still about 6 weeks before the Cray season closes.

Hopefully you'll get one before the season closes.
Chicken is also a good bait I think

The rain has eased a little over the past couple of days. More heavy rain forecast for the weekend...

So, I thought I would go and see what the river is doing...Not even out of the yard, sitting in the car, and it comes on the news FLOOD WARNING issued !!! They are going to open the dam. They say the dam cannot handle the expected rain on the weekend.

I went to the river anyway...Absolutely chocka block full !! Whether they open the dam or not, if it rains on the weekend the river will flood.

I just can't win !!... I might change my user name to Itsa-TackleRat haha
