Default Catching yabbies

Hi all,
We're going to take a couple of yabby pots on our trip to the cape. Could anyone give me some info on we're or witch creeks would be good and what best to bait pots with.
I have heard soap is good but don't want to use this, polluting the creek system is not something we want to do.

Thanks shannon

Dog pellets bread crusts but not meat as the little crocks will destroy them.

Take about 3 operhouse nets and tie them off.

Walk the creak ore river with a torch and you will see them crawling around.

Yabbies in all water ways crocks and yabbies in Lake Field , Jardine and Wenlock.

You may have to walk a fair distance at any of the popular camp sites as the earlier campers give it a big go.

You will spot the yabbies walking around where there are tree limbs and stumps in the water.

The crocks you will spot by shining the light out across the water.

All ways be crock wise espesialy night time.

We have found potato peelings to work well. Remember to check the pots every half hour or so, sometimes file snakes will get into the pots and can drown. These snakes are harmless no need to worry about them.
Good luck.
