    Cool A yarn about yabbies

    Hi there,
    Heading out West for a trip again (longreach, Windorah, Barcoo, Isisford) after being on the coast for quite a while.
    What yabby pots are recommended now? I used to always use a dilly pot, but I'm tempted to try an opera house pot. I've heard nasty stories about bycatch though..
    Thoughts??
    Also, I looked up QLD regs, and there are different rules for redclaws than yabbies. I never knew they were different!
