    South Island Koura

    I have been in Central Otago for the last month and tried out some Yabbie pots my son brought over from Aus.WOW do you S I chaps have some good fishing down there. Never had an empty pot. We put all the smaller ones and those with eggs back keeping just enough for a tasty entree each day.

    Well done John that is the biggest Koura I have ever seen. Man I used to eat a shit load of them in my younger days.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    The bait was what ever was on hand that day Goat,Pig,Duck,Bacon,Turkey,Venison, didnt seem to make any difference. No need to paint them theys all orange when cooked.They came out of a power station water canal.
