DIY Yabby Sieve

Every fisherman has a yabby pumping story. Whether it was walking down the beach with family on a weekend afternoon, or maybe resorting to it when the fish weren’t cooperating! There’s a reason that so many people do it, and that’s because it’s dead easy to get into. At the most basic level, all you need is a bait pump and you’re good to go. Though this time, Olivia is changing it up by creating a floating sieve, handy for when there may be a little bit of water sitting on top of the sand flats you want to work!

What you will need:

  • Bait sieve
  • Pool noodle, cut to fit around sieve
  • Zip ties
  • Drill – small gauge drill bit (wide enough to fit a zip tie)
  • Rope
  • Scissors

How to do it:

  • Firstly, cut your pool noodle to fit around the rim of your bait sieve
  • Drill between six and eight holes around the lip of the bait sieve
  • Match the end of the noodle up with the first hole you have drilled, and secure with a zip tie
  • Wrap the pool noodle round the sieve and attach the other end with a zip tie first. Doing this allows you to get the perfect alignment of the noodle before going back and securing the rest of the noodle in place.
  • Secure rest of noodle with zip ties and trip the tails of them with scissors.
  • Tie a rope to the side of the sieve to prevent from floating away – and you’re good to go!

For all the parts you need, head to your local BCF.
