WHAT SHOULD I LOOK FOR WHEN BUYING A TRAP?
There are dozens of different crab traps, lobster traps, prawn nets and fishing nets to choose from. In addition, you will require suitable tackle boxes, crab bait, waders and other fishing gear for optimum results. Fishing is a science best learnt from the experts, so take time to speak to your local Anaconda fishing specialist if possible.
We have everything required for safe angling and crabbing at Anaconda. You can pick up lifejackets that satisfy Australian standards, squid jigs, hard body fishing lines, rod holders, collapsible nets, aerators, swivels and more.
WHAT TYPE OF BAIT SHOULD I USE IN THE TRAP?
Again, this is dependent on your chosen catch. Crab bait is generally anything from food, such as chicken necks or intestines to tins of tuna with holes punched in them, to road kill and dead fish or eels. Different baits will work in different locations, so a lot of trial and error is involved. Prawn or shrimp bait is normally a combination of commercial pellets and oils, but can also be made from some fishy cat foods, canned oily fishes (mackerel, sardines, herring), fish carcasses, and herring or anchovies.
CAN I USE A TRAP ANYWHERE?
Australian fishing regulations vary from state to state. Some types of trap are not permitted in some areas, so make sure you check the regulations before you set out to go fishing with your trap. Other restrictions can be seasonal to avoid catching fish or shellfish in the breeding season. Fishing permits are also required in many areas.
