Kevin mentioned to Loyds son in law Ben that he'd brought his yabby traps with him, but didn't expect too much being as it was winter. Ben informed him that his chances might be good downstream from the artesian bore. The bore pumps out steaming hot mineral rich water providing useful irrigation. The yabbys seemed to have adapted to year round warm water and grow to a decent size. They provided a pleasant change from camp oven cooking (no offense Craig)

The bore is hot enough to cook in I would think

It was hot enough for a bath a little up from here

Traps baited an set. Now the wait.

Jake tests the waters depth

The next day we were pleased to find a good haul

Enough for one and a bit each

Sweet chili sauce on the plate improved flavours
