Depending on the prawning venue you visit, there could be freshwater and saltwater ponds for the various types of shellfish. The ponds are often replenished every two hours or so to ensure that you’ll catch something for the day! Go grab a plastic chair, cast your rod and wait for some deliciousness to come your way.

Also depending on the venue and season, the sizes of the prawns differ. Some venues include crayfish and crabs in their ponds as well so be sure to know what you’re fishing for before heading down to try this activity.
