    Re: How's the fishing/yabbying at Somerest ATM

    Heading back to the dam on the 17th, has anyone been there lately that can report on how The Red Claw catch rate is going?

    All reports I have read say that this has been the worst year ever for Red Claw at Somerset, it looks like the catchment area had around 25mm of rain last week hopefully this is enough to stir them up.
    Cheers Axl

    Second pull of our eight pots this morning and we have 52 Red Claw tails in the freezer, not great numbers but at least we are getting a feed.

    Hi 39NESP we ended up with 124 tails frozen from six overnight soaks, not huge numbers but a nice feed to take home none the less. The majority of the catch were all good size not manly small ones at all really except a few in the first pull (which is pictured below), I thought the rain may have stirred them up a bit more as the week went on but it didn't seem too. Talking to others in the park who were yabbying they weren't getting massive numbers either. We took a cryovac machine with us and used this to freeze the tails for the first time as we have lost a few to icing up in our freezer at home in the past, only time will tell how this goes but it went well at the time of sealing them up. Hopefully we will get back out there around Oct/Nov for another run.

    Once the skiers left on the Sunday afternoon we ended up with all the powered tent sites to ourselves for the next 4 nights20170321_093301.jpg

    There were a few nice big ones in amongst our catch20170318_085907.jpg20170318_090102.jpg
