Used to catch plenty of them at Ringwood Lake when I was a kid. Just used some meat from home as bait

It's getting a bit cold they will be down in the mud by now. Try ringing around a few tackle shops as some get farmed yabbies or they bring them in from interstate

If the month doesn't have an R in the name then don't bother trying. Tackle shop would the go. Little guys only good for bait around 10 bucks for a dozen.
