The croc probably moved into the creek within the last day or so. They’re on the move at this time of year. If it was a resident croc, it would have been spotted dozens of times already, with the amount of traffic at Buff Creek. Safety in numbers, eh?

Sure, it’s still a risk wading in with the castnet, and I’ve seen a few big crocs in the Bay over the years, but it’s a relatively safe place to throw the net. Always spend the time to check out your surroundings.
Wouldn’t do it elsewhere, where they don’t trap them, that’s for sure. That’s why they have the traps.

*Cue the masses telling me I’m a candidate for a Darwin Award*🤣🤣🤣

You only have to be in the water at the wrong time, I saw a 12 footer at the Cullen Bay sandbar years ago, I reported it and they never found it.

As for Buff Creek - stonefish, bull sharks, jellyfish, crocs, stingrays, poo - pass! :mrgreen:

Enjoyed many a landbased fish there and at Meckit and King Ck without ever having to go in the water.

Full marks to those braver than I.

I pushed my boat through the shallows of the mouth past a 2.5 croc once. 100m further in there he was again ahead of me :o
