Yeh jozz, but i live in QLD near cairns. The only trout we get up here aren't the tiny freshwater things from down south, REAL TROUT!!!! BIG RED SUCKERS FROM THE REEF. I reckon a couple of big barra would go down alright tho! ;D

Dr Dan,
I'm not sure of the legality of doing what you are proposing. I know that there are plenty of redclaw in the local creeks and lakes, but they are actually endemic to the West side of Queensland (creeks running into the Gulf) and not native to the East coast at all. Farmers on the East coast have to have a 60cm solid fence, not to escape predators, but to prevent escapees.

I have plenty of redclaw info if you want to give me an email (letter link to the left).
