Gday Mick and Paul,
Paul the poddy's are in the tank waiting for my next trip to the lake, went in the harbour sat evening no result.

Mick just loosen the cap and the air comes out ok must get a siev, as for microwaving the bread all I ended up with was a hot wet glug must be doing it wrong

A tip with bread for burley

Stick it out on the lawn on a really hot day and allow it to dry out completely. Doing this allows you to store it in a dry place in an onion bag without mould and it breaks up real easy when you are using it, absorbs the water and turns mushy faster too

G`day Fellas ,
Hey Ponsey , sorry Mate , I should have told you to toast it slightly Ist if its fresh Bread .
Dings bread wouldn`t last 5 seconds on my lawn mate , theres 3 bloody blue tounges , 3000 indian Minas , 8 kooka`s , 25 magpies , and 5 very testy possums.
Fellas , I cant really explain why Microwaving the bread is the secret to poddy catching , I too thought It was a leg pull at first , untill I put it to the test.
Then , after consistently catching 5 times as many poddies as others , I became convinced , and now use it exclusively .
Don`t mind sharing the secret either , and also understand the quizical looks on the faces of those who ask , to microwave the bread after a light toasting if fresh .
Mick.






I`LL BE BAAAACK....!!!!

Ponsey, Mullet traps are 25% off at Kmart this week. Dont know how good they are though, clear cylinder with a funnel end. Would be worth a try if they are only a few dollars. (I know you are loaded anyway so money is no object)

Hi Ponsey,
I made a trap out of the clear vegetable crisper
found at the bottom of old fridges.Put flyscreen
over the top and drill two small holes, ie15mm in
either end and stuff some bread in it.Tie a length
of rope to it and stake it near the trap so you can
find it.You would be surprised how many poddy mullet
can fit inside one of these.

Another good method is to use the clear tubular plastic cover that you see over fluro's in worksites and safety lights. A good work safety supplier usually has them. I have seen them to suit both the 2 and 4 ft fluro's. No mess, no breaky breaky. They work on the same principal as the fluro tubes themselves. Just block off one end with a bit of cut up thong or a yabby pump washer. Cheers Rossco

G`day Fellas ,
Hey Roscie , a couple of questions mate , as I`ve not been in a factory for 40 odd years , i`m not quite sure of the tube you describe.
Are they Cylindrical ? , or gutter shaped .
If cylindrical , then how do you prevent it continuously rolling over all the time ? .
If its gutter shaped , what do you use to seal the open end ??.
Mick

feed em fish food, Ponsey. it'll be the best way to keep your tank clean. Either flakes or you could try the frozen blood worms from the Pet Shop.

Mick they are round. They should stay still in the water, but if not put a couple of small rocks either side.

G`day Fellas ,
Hey Rossy , it wasn`t for me mate , I was just wondering how you set yours up thats all .
Mine works extremely well for me , but I`m always interested in others ideas as well.
I can`t seem to find a Pic I took at a family day At the Local lagoon with the lil one`s having a ball catching poddies .
One bottle was so full of the buggers , I almost had to cut it open to let them go , they were jamed in so tight .
And as well as me taking a pic of the poddies jammed in the trap , a parent of one of the other kids who tagged along , took some video of the fun the kids were having , and I can tell you that the Squeals of delight they let out when they pulled the trap in , was deafening .
Its a good fun day catching poddies with the lil ones .
Mick

ponsey, I've never bothered using poddy's, there's heaps of Yellowtail in the lake to use as livies and i think there're a better bait. The Mullet will keep better in the tank.






Good Luck Slippery...

I think some companies make good bait traps for a reasonable price. Just ask your local tackle store to see whether they stock any.
