The marron look delish  Smiley Smiley Smiley

I’m guessing they have the same taste/texture of s yabbie?

Reddie looks a good eating size.

What was your tortoise/turtle soup like? Cheesy

I like the marron more than yabbies. Similar texture to a crayfish, taste closer to a yabby, but with a hint of cray maybe. Made really good sandwiches with a bit of salt and pepper! Got a couple of good fillets off the redfin which I still have sitting in the car fridge, will have them tomorrow for brekky or lunch.

My mum sent me that yesterday. It was on the The West Australian Facebook page as well. Hopefully it means every man and his dog will be heading to Busselton this weekend. I've got a trip planned to the Murray River again but a bit further down than where I went last week trying to avoid the Aussie Day crowds

Got back yesterday. Didn't really try very hard with the marroning, so didn't catch anything. Was a nice little spot about an hour and a half from home.

Went on a bit of a scouting mission very close to home last night. And found quite a few marron. All of a 5.6km drive from home. With only 4 days left of the season, I hope to do a good session down here over the weekend. I caught 3 all up in 2 hours, all were just a little undersize so didn't keep any, but it's a good sign for when I don't feel like driving an hour or 2 onto the SW forests, as I did see bigger specimens hovering back off the baits, just out of reach of my scoop. I also saw heaps of freshwater cobbler, so will get some worms and have a go at a few of those guys

Went back to my local waterhole last night, used drop nets this time with great success. Got my PB marron with a 95mm carapace. Thinking of trying to mount him in my shed if I can find a good ant nest to clean him out for me. Also picked up a couple cobbler. Wasn't sure how to clean them properly so filleted one and massacred it, so cooked the other whole minus the head. Was very tasty for breakfast.
