Cost of bait!
« on: April 19, 2014, 05:00:09 PM »
Expensive little outing today.$25 for fuel,to drive to Hamon cove,& seeing we are waiting on new lures to arrive,thought I would get some yabbies-$11.50 for these at B.P Esk. I'm in the wrong game. :OMG

Did you allow for a SIP too?

Haha.Yep,I bought that in January,before my first lure hit the water aussiebasser,although it doesn't seem to matter.I was talking to one of the rangers the first time we went fishing,& he didn't even ask me if I had one,& wasn't even interested when i pulled it out to show him.That was at Hamon too.Some bloke there yesterday was casting a baitnet.Is that allowed there?

A baitnet is not permitted in Fresh water in Queensland.  Good one on paying for your SIP.  now if it cost you $25 for fuel to get to Hamon Cove, how much would it have cost you to drive to the coast to pump some Yabbies?

Ok,so the bloke was breaking the law using the net.I hear what you're saying about the yabbies,& wouldnt mind so much,provided they were decent quality,but these things were falling apart in my fingers as I was trying to put the hook through them.If they're not usable,then they aren't worth anything,let alone $11.50!

Rustwater yabbies dont keep. They're only any good live and never hold together well even then.

Who ever is selling these "preserved" yabbies is selling sand to the arabs.

Yes.More like B.P Esk selling to a desperado! Their "live worms" are even worse.Thin as matchsticks. Same price.

People were catching heaps of  fish up here on the downs with them salt water yabbies in Tge lakes.  Were  out fishing everything else including live shrimp.  I really can't understand why.

I got some yabbies from Fish N Bits in Toowoomba that held together real well! not sure what they used but i googled it after and apparently soaking them in metho helps to preserve them

Yeah jordo,the first time I went fishing in January I used these and caught two fish off them when lures weren't attracting them.That time they stayed together a lot better.I'm thinking that because I bought them from a servo that maybe it was old stock or something.I'm learning all I can about lures and soft plastics from every TV show I can find and the guys on here.I will more than likely just use those.Thanks for your input fellas. :youbeauty
