Yeah interesting - were you using the opera house nets with the open mesh mouth or 75mm ring or 50mm ring opening.

And when you say the nets were checked early - roughly how long had they been soaking for.

The operas are open mesh and i've checked both types at all different intervals .. 2 hours, 4 hours, 8 hours, overnight ... even been left for a couple of days for the same result

Thanks for all that - you've saved me a long night staring at a chop

Based on your findings - do you find the longer you soak - the bigger the margin between the traps.

ie after 2 hours the opera house net catches 25% more - but after a full day and night it catches 75% more.

No not really, although i did find that the open top net did perform a little better in deeper water than shallow water

Thanks for all that - pleasure to converse with a man who appreciates the finer points of Yabbying.

Kids love yabbying
And if you get them involved they even love to race each other to see who can shell them the quickest while you have a beer and time them

Yeah I never really grew out of it - Great Yabby shelling hack - we used to get kids at the camping ground fighting over which one could stack our beer eskies the neatest.

Extra points were given if all the labels were facing up and in perfect alignment
