Hi Skeggley Thanks mate. The catfish I had last time were doing well until the the disaster happened. I would catch a few wild fish if you can much cheaper. Tandanus Bostoki here in WA, they don't grow as big as the east coast ones.
The Bee's are getting very active now spring is here. Should get a harvest in a month or two. I may try to do a split on the hive later in the year as I now have a spare box. What about yourself ? the gum trees in the hills would be in full bloom now.

Hi mate, yeah all good here, it’s usually a bit slower up here and am still yet to get into the hives for a looksie, we’re getting rain, sun, rain, wind, sun if you know what I mean. I find that when I get more empty boxes the bees seem to find me so I need more! I didn’t split last season so I’m expecting to this season, I’ll make that call during inspections over the next month or so as it warms.
The Marri flow is our main flow, on a good year I’ve seen trees raining nectar. Not sure if the Marri is up your way, and it’s a while away yet.
So Bostoki is cobbler?

Hi Skeggley, I live in the Western part of Geraldton close to the coast, surrounded by the suburbs so no real native vegetation. Not many Marri tree's here but plenty of other blooms, Geraldton Wax etc. The last time looked in the hive the frames were starting to fill but weren't capped. Ill do a small harvest once they are capped then remove the queen excluder to let the brood build ready to do a spilt later in the year.
Yep the Bostocki is the WA native fresh water cobbler, found from Moore River in the north right trough the SW of WA. I think the Helena River would be the closest to you. Maybe spot lighting with a net ? Just be careful of those spines :whistle:

Ok so just getting my head around this, are the salt water cobblers bostocki also?
And would I need a licence to fish the Helena river?
Edit. I’ve just realised Mundaring Weir is the Helena river!

Salt water Cobbler are a different species. they only live in salty/brackish water. Where as Bostocki are fresh water only.
Not sure about the license, I think that's only in the South West region. Mundaring Weir is a good place to start looking.
