Best place around South East Brisbane to catch shrimp

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Nate here, I've finally got my license back, so keen as mustard to go out looking for some native shrimp for a nano I've got :)

I'm most after glass or riffles.

I live in the Logan area, but keen to go for a little drive, set up 2-3 traps, then come back in the morning to check on them :)

I'll be using just the normal rectangular bait traps with probably a can of cat food or tuna in each with a few hours poked in :)

Regards,

Nathan

Gday Nathan, I've had luck catching them in most of my local creeks. For me what works best is finding a patch of plants (elodea seems to be best) and just running a little scoop net through it. I can pick up a good 30 in 5 minds of scooping. Cheers,

Schmitee

You can get some glass shrimp in amongst the long arm shrimp at the Pine River in Petrie. Just be careful of snakes down there, came face to face with a keelback while wading through chest deep water, got the heart racing for a bit there.
