Bow n Arrow – GIANT MUD CRAB – Bag and Cook dinner
Look at this oh oh oh we got a shark over here we got a crab here we're in Knee Deep Water this is living what is going on doggies welcome back to another video all right we're out in the mangra system right now we are up to no good we've got the bow and.
Arrow we've got a big dirty crab hook here and the aim of the game is pretty much to walk around this Mangrove system the whole entire day hunting the biggest most beautiful pieces of seafood we possibly can so what we're doing right now the tide is just about to pump up to its highest point so I'm going to use the bow and arrow fully old school we're.
Going to sniper around these Mangrove systems see if we can shoot a couple of fish and then as that tide drains out we're going to put this crab hook to work and hopefully fingers crossed we get a big juicy crab like I'm talking a monster crab start a fire up on the bank have a hell feed that's the plan but look we're out here in the in the middle.
Of nowhere Anything could happen right now this is going to be a bloody good day right there there's a stingray just shot off there he would have been beautiful couple of stingray flaps on the fire but this ecosystem out here is super alive many little fish it's only matter of time until we come.
Across that big dog snooping around here in the shallows and lay that Arrow straight through him many fish sandflies are super friendly out of here so what I'm doing is I'm shooting a little bit of a different meth method than I usually do I've got a finger Tab and I'm actually shooting three under I used to shoot one over two under like.
This I'm shooting three under I'm going to see how I can change my style and um see if it's a little bit more productive oh that was very very close a big Mallet oh this is a long shot but let's have a shot oh you Mong just took off as that Arrow pasted his head did you see that that was close look at this look at.
Them all look at that that's a big old Shell have a look at this there's five or six bony Herring right there have a look at that don't know if you can see that five or six bony Herring and then you look over here.
And look at the size of that school of fish right there their old Trumpeter or grunter call them whatever you want there are hundreds of them that's not really what I'm targeting they're pretty small there is no shortage of fish out here have a look at that Hees man it's not what we're looking.
For can't punching on up here all right it is safe to say that there is a smallest Board of fish out here so many different fish but what I'm going to do I'm going to be super selective with my shots I'm only going to take shots at fish that I want to keep so what I've got in my mind right now is shooting a big sea mullet if I.
Can get one of them that is my aim that's my goal but there's a lot of other fish a lot of other species around here I can literally see mullet right here they're not massive but there's mullet so there's a lot of fish in this area and um look really now what I want to do is get a um get a big crab and Chuck that on the fire tonight but while.
This Tide's High we're just going to keep shooting fish or trying to shoot fish and um I'm just going to be real selective only shooting the biggest fish I see there's a very strange stuff going out the back here I'll show you what this is what is that big school of fish let's go and have a shot if they're mullet that's what we're targeting let's.
Go they come around the back and stop them before they get to that Headland over there they're moving fast they're moving real fast I've reckon if we can get to this Headland up here they should hug the land they should hug the shore we might be able to cut them off maybe ah they come right up here then.
They pushed back out they're heading back to where they come from so they're obviously just doing laps oh my God look at the mullet right there check this out ooh you are very very lucky look at them all oh my god oh doggies we're on look at this look at this have a look at this.
Welcome to Australia right here we've got a big mud crab and just over my back here where did he go there's a black tip reef shark cruising around in the shallow water there so we got a shark over here we got a crab here we're in KNE deep water this is living this is living slowly just walking with this crab he's heading towards that shallow.
Water so I'm just going to let him Cruise the reason I'm not picking him up right now is when they're in the water like this they have the advantage over me the back the back two swimmers they can use them to propel themselves very quickly around in the water and if he nips me out here look that thing will take my finger off he's a big boy and um.
Little it's actually two sharks there have a there's two sharks at the back not too sure if you can see that shark but we just keep got to keep an eye on this crab this is epic come on mate you're walking the right way keep going St taking me dog for a walk that's a boy keep going doing the hard work for me how good is that's.
Going to be delicious what a way to start the bloody day we got a bow an arrow we're got a broken arrow and we have a monster crab so this is a big big crab that Claw is that's a gigant you can see he's a male that's a gigantic claw there he's only got the one claw so he's obviously been fighting for females or fighting for his.
Territory but it got pretty chaotic out there for a little while and um what I was doing was using the arrow to Usher him in like trying to push him against the shore and the strength of the crab the claws they have it just bit this carbon fiber carbon fiber arrow and snapped it clean in half so he's just cracked me arrow in half but we've got a.
Beautiful crab to Chuck on the fire and the day's only begun so what I've done you can see him is very limp he's already asleep I've put him to sleep pretty much straight away what you can do is that its brain if you come in on an angle you can sleep crab straight away because I'm out here in the bush I got no ice I've got nothing to put him.
On Ice he's just going to go straighten me backpack I don't want a crab to be suffering in my hot backpack so we put him to sleep straight through the head there he's sleeping no more pain for him and um look we got one crab on the board and we've just started this Mission so lucky I brought a second Arrow let's keep walking see what else we can get.
But I'm happy with that mate that's going to feed us look at the size of him that's going to be a good feed later around the fire oh yeah that's what I'm talking about beautiful wow shovelnose.
Shark have a look at this have a look at this so I'm just walking through these Flats I'm about Knee Deep Water seeing lots of fish trying to be selective and then I've just come across this incredibly beautiful crab look at the colors of his Nippers here he is beautiful he's a big boy he's a big big boy probably a little bit bigger than.
The one we just got that's a big crab have a look at him he's beautiful right let's see if we can get him up on the bank like we did the last one we can't break this Arrow this is our last Arrow right let's go you can see that if I tried to grab that thing with my hands he's got the advantage right now he's got two massive claws he's definitely.
Got the advantage on me in this water we're about Knee Deep right now I'm going to try to get him up on the bank beautiful crab he's a big boy all right what this crabb's actually doing is he's going out to deep water and I cannot deter him into the shallows so what I'm going to try to do wrap a little bit of fishing line which.
I had in my bag from the last episode and try to wrap it around him somehow if we can get it and that's how we're going to get him up come on there we go all right let's get him to the shore as quick as possible we're using fishing line on one end he's going to get he's going to Ping that off we'll.
Got to run got to go got to go all right we've got him Tangled Up in the fishing line it's now a matter of time before he bites that off very light line 15 lb come on big boy it's a big crab he's a big crab oh this is what it's all about right here right now soon soon as we get him on the dry land he's.
Ours whoa he's angry he is not a happy crab neither would I be mate it's all right he's a big boy he's coming around for the kill shot he his beautiful crab he is a proper proper Buck look at the size of this bloody crab now that is what I come out of here for that is a big big crab.
Man if you guys can see the Nippers on that thing he is monstrous look at that look at the colors in his claws that's epic oh he's heavy he'd go 2 and 1/2 kilo probably he's a big boy that is epic it's actually a lot easier just walk in the flats looking for fish and then these crabs are just cruising around in the shallow water looking for.
A feed themselves and you just what we did then we just Tangled him up in the fishing line we just dragged him up on the shore because he was going straight out to water but that is another beautiful crab this has got to be one of my favorite things you could ever do ever it's the most enjoyable well I'm not going to lie.
Today has turned out to be pretty bloody successful so far haven't even had an opportunity really to lay an arrows for a fish but we have found two incredibly beautiful crabs both very big beautiful eating size crabs so stoked with that got a lot of we got a lot lot of Coastline to cover still and then once that all this water here this is going.
To be absolutely bone dry so once this completely bone goes bone dry we'll come back with the hook and see if we can get a couple more but we're off to a flying start we're eating good tonight doggies we are eating very good around the fire little baby shark just cruising through the water look at him go there he go little.
Baby there's so much life out here it is incredible have a look at that two black Tiff reef sharks cruising along the bank looking for a feed and then just here there's a massive crab hole that is a big mud crab hole you can see it's a fresh hole all of those shells and bits of coral have been excavated very recently you can see.
The sand is all white and then that's black sand there so there's a crab living in that hole right now but we'll come back to that on low tide we'll see if we can get him out there's definitely something living in there what I'm noticing in is there's a lot of Flathead Burrows so what that means is that there's a flat there's a lot of Flathead.
They're about 400 m long they come in they bury themselves in the dirt and they wait for fish to swim over them and they go boom and eat them so I've seen a lot of Flathead Burrows in the mud and in the sand here I hav yet to see a flathead but if we can plug a flathead with the bow and arrow close range that will be incredible so I'm just still.
Keeping my eye out for these big crabs but now I'm also looking for these Flathead because they're around somewhere that was close big mullet what's happened here there's another crab a that's a beautiful one too he's obviously seen better days he's dead.
He's old he smells like a bin that's another be beautiful crab look at the colors on that thing unfortunately he's not edible poor little fella wonder what happened to him anyway the fish are going to have a Feeding Frenzy on.
That beautiful crab look at this a they're fast they're a lot faster than I am oh.
have a look at this there's not a breath of wind right now feels like I'm on another planet man it is absolutely incredible I've just gone back to the car I've put those two crabs in the fridge they're chilling the meat is going to be absolutely bloody beautiful also what I've done is I've went and.
Changed my arrows so now I've got some um aluminium arrows the reason I've got the aluminium arrows are this tide is very quickly draining out and I'm going to start shooting into reef and I'm going to start shooting into rocks so these arrows have a little bit less more potential of damage but there's something that I want to show you is.
Just over here very very bloody interesting check this out have a look at this see this fella right here that's a crab watch this oh good good morning beautiful he's in there look at him oh oh he's not happy at all oh look at him there it is there's a beautiful crab.
He's obviously I'm actually going to take a guess and say that's a female beautiful big shell little baby Nippers that would be a female mud crab we're going to let her live we've got two crabs it's plenty of feed let her go but that one was just taking cover in the mud there so there's a lot of crabs around see that of.
Beautiful be good all right we'll keep hunting I'm still on the hunt for that flat head and um see if we can find a few more crabs before that tide really sucks out have a go at this there is still not a breath of wind out here and that tide has literally just out just it's just started draining out in the last 10 to.
15 minutes this is where we were walking before and we were in KN deep water and now it is bone dry so what happens is when that tide drains out like it has all those crabs that were walking around in this water they go and take shelter in their little holes all these cracks in the reef so what I'm going to do is I'm going to go find our um crab hook.
Which is somewhere in this Mangrove system honestly I got no idea where I left it I just sort of stuck it in the mud I got way too carried away having the bow now having too much fun so we got to go find the crab hook and um what we'll do is because these crabs are taking shelter in their holes now we'll go get that crab hook we'll have a poke.
Around in all those holes that we've seen previously and fingers crossed we can pull another crab out of one of his holes unfortunately on that high tide we didn't really get the opportunity that I thought we would have to lay an arrow through our fish which kind of sucks but um as always tomorrow there's a lot of fish around that just weren't really.
Worth having a shot at to be honest so we'll put the B Arrow away we'll go find this crab hook we'll see if we can get one or two more crabs and have an absolutely juicy feed around the fire this Aro there should still be a couple of big crabs around who knows look at this there still is not a breath of wind and it's it's bloody incredible I live.
For this kind of thing right now look at it tell you what I have got no idea where I left that crab hook oh no it's like a maze in here everything just looks the same yeah the bloody how did I put it yes we would have been absolutely.
Stuffed without you my little crab hook there you are have a bloody look at this that is an incredible crab hole that is what we want to see first thing I do first thing I.
Always do is try to look from the side see if you can see a couple of legs you know what that's a crabs leg right there just come in real gentle poke around oh that's a crab hear that oh yeah that's a crab 100% crab in this hole You Hear The Ting Ting Ting.
That's not the Rocks that's the crab shell all right we got a crab in this hole here we go oh my oh look at this oh my goodness oh my God he's coming out don't even have to scoop him out look at this are you joking that's another monster of a crab he was easy to get out.
Of his hole you're not going back in mate look at the size of that that is an incredible crab so that's what I'm talking about when that tide sucks out and they got nowhere to go they'll come and hide in these hes and you can provide yourself with an incredible crab here's a big boy another incredibly purple beautiful purple color on these.
Crabs he's lovely wow that was as easy as picking your bloody nose wasn't it have a got him he is another beautiful crab he won't let go of the stick but check out the colors on him beautiful big male another Buck he's got that beautiful purpley blue color to him all over his whole entire body look at him here's another decent crab you wouldn't.
Want that claw to grab you by the finger tell you what you'd lose it mate it snapped that carbon fiber arrow in half straight away so that is another bloody beautiful crab we're going to keep him because I'm feeding myself I'm feeding Mac 10 and I promised I said we're going to have a big feed around the fire so that's three crabs he's a bloody.
Gorgeous crab too all right let's Chuck him in the bag and um we'll keep pushing on that was the first hole that we found big crab in it he is gorgeous look at him doesn't get much better than that doggies tell you what there's a big boy oh bloody good I tell you what we're going to be eating bloody good tonight have a look at that hole over there.
There's another hole just up here M very shallow very empty it's not a very big hole compared to the one we just checked here we go possible Big Mama's House you can see here little baby crab just there you see him a little crab sitting there but this is where the big.
Boy will live that is a big hole see if we can see him in there can't really see a lot right now but that's a good hole right let's have a dig around slowly slowly go in oh my god listen listen listen to that that's a crab 100% crab in there 100%.
Crab all right what you got to do is get the hook you want to get the hook around the back of the crab yeah it feels like a good crab too here we go hooks around the back of the crab definitely around the back look at the size of that claw bro no way this is a bloody good crab oh my goodness oh.
My good God out you come big boy oh no come out of here that oh look at the size of that claw this is the crab of all crabs right now this is Party Time doggies this is Party Time come on come on big boy oh my God are you kidding look at the size of that crab habba babba is all I can say.
That is a massive Buck look at the size of those claws look at my little puny hand compared to that Crab Claw there that thing is the monster holy he just come out of that little hole look at the size of that that is a big crab man that's the biggest crab of the day by far wow that's a real crab aren't.
You mate you are the king of the ocean look at the size of that thing big beautiful baby w wo whoo whoo whoo wo so I've said to myself I wanted to catch four crabs today if I can nail four crabs in a row I'll be bloody happy and I tell you what I am bloody happy we have got four.
Monstrous crabs the last one being the biggest if you look at the size of that claw there that is a proper proper mud crab claw one of my favorite eating things in the ocean I'm holding it in my hand right now that is a bloody beautiful crab look I could probably go around here and get another 10 more I could easily get my today there's a lot.
Of crabs around here but four four is all we need two crabs each that's that is a two crabs each is a massive feed and um I don't want to take any more than this but that's it we've done our we've done our four crab limit what I might do is I'll just go for a quick walk up the coast there we'll see if we can find a few more holes see if there's.
A few crabs in there but we'll just leave them in there for somebody else we'll leave them in there for the breeding and the next time but that is incredible that is our last crab of the day didn't take too long to find them definitely made up for the bow and arrow fishing that's for sure he is a buck and a half big beautiful crab look at that.
Very happy we're eating good we are eating real good just look at the size of the bloody thing it is a monstrous mud crab the colors are incredible on these crabs I think because we're getting them out of the ocean and not in the muddy mud in the background over there they're these beautiful purple I'm not too sure if you.
Guys can see the purples but they're a beautiful purpley blue color all four crabs that we've caught are this beautiful color cuz we're getting them out in the salty water not over there in the mangroves incredibly beautiful oh here's the last one for the day let's go start up a.
Fire incredible tell you what being out here catching these crabs it is one of the I've probably said it 100 times this video it's one of the best things you can ever do but you got to put up with the Sanders and the mosquitoes and that's um that's the Next Level thing check my legs out I have Sandfly bites.
All over me and if you guys know how bad Sandfly bites are they are the most excruciating painful little bloody things don't know if you're going to be able to see this but if you can see 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 I can just keep going and going and going me legs are absolutely covered in Sandfly bites right now so I'm going to have a couple.
Of sleepless nights after this mission but it's um it's worth every second usually you can put bug spray on or whatever but I forgot completely forgot the bug spray anyway you got to be in it to win it and it's all good I'm going to punch back to the car we're going to go to another place we're going to start up a fire and um we're going to have one.
Hell of a fade that's that's that's for sure see look at that stand still for a few few seconds and you get smoked man right let's get out of you all right here we go we got enough wood to cook four big beautiful crabs so what we're going to do now is we going to kick fire in the ass and we are going to.
Cook up some of the most beautiful food ever we're not just cooking crabs we're going to make an incredible dipping sauce out here in the bush I'm telling you right now it's going to make your mouth water so go to the kitchen put your bibs on this is going to be bloody beautiful all right so what we've got here is a little fire pit somebody else.
Has made we're just going to use this fire pit cuz it is actually perfect what we need is we need these chunks of rock and these chunks of coral to suspend Bend our big pot off of the fire so it boils very quick so what I'm going to use I'm just going to use a lighter this time we're using a lighter because if you guys watch that survival video I did.
My hands are still cooked so lighters are the way to go mate how easy was that all right this thing is going to absolutely go up is it oh yeah it is go on big rig there she goes yes.
Sir do your thing so the key to cooking these crabs is 110% salt water never but never Cooks mud crabs in fresh water it will not taste good but you can like of course you can but it's just not going to taste as good as the natural environment they come out of so I've just walked about.
What's that a kilometer out on this low tide Reef so I'm going to go collect some of that salt water we're going to be using this pot and we're going to be boiling the crabs in this pot over that fire to important things to do right now one clean out the old from your last cooking Mission and two don't stand on any stone fish that'll end this trip.
Real quick that should be enough water maybe a little bit more actually all right so we're just going to sit this pot on those two rocks that we've strategically placed there and that should boil in about 10 to 15 minutes.
That water should be pretty hot that is pumping out a whole lot of heat right now all right I'm going to go start this secret recipe it's a secret dipping source and it is going to make these crabs better than they already are I hope so anyway all right what I'm doing here I'm going.
To get some of these hot ashes out of there we're going to drag them over here make another little surprise fire put that rock there and then this pan is going to have its own little fire bed just like that so this is where we're going to cook the secret sauce and this is where we're going to keep boiling the water under there have a.
Look at this there's also a um there's also a surprise guest behind the camera hello ma 10 has come to join the party and she's come at the right time so this is what she does you go out you do all the hard work and she just comes for a feed just F to four no not really all right let's get this little fire going here let's pump that fire up look at.
That it's already bubbling oh this is going to be incredible come just down here we're just going to get a little bit of the mud off them clean them up and then we're just going to drop them in that water once it boils that water's got about another 10 minutes so um these crabs have been in.
The fridge they're completely asleep what a bloody morning Hy this is going to taste incredible all right here's our first first two crabs we're going to drop in the pot too big boys that water's just started boiling so one crab in what I'm going to do is I'm just going to cook two crabs and then um we'll do the other.
Two a little bit later it's just two and two oh yeah all right so what we do now is we wait for that boil we're going to wait for this water to come back up to the boil and as soon as that water starts boiling again we're going to put on a timer for 20 minutes so once it starts boiling again 20 minutes and we are going to be on and while that's.
Cooking it's time to start the secret sauce down there the secret dipping ingredient all right so here we're very slightly oiled up a pan here we have a couple of garlic cloves half an onion so that's going to go onto the pan oh listen do it Sizzle there's nothing like cooking in the bush all right we're going to wait till.
This onion and garlic goes down and gets nicely caramelized have a go at this that sun we don't have long she's going to be gone so we're racing that sun once again Mac 10 she's down here she's doing the onions just getting it nice and golden look at that they're getting real golden those crabs we're just about to start that 20-minute.
Timer so it's not quite boiling once it really starts boiling 20 minute timer starts but we're looking good the kitchen views bloody incredible hey Siri can you start a 20 minute timer 20 minutes counting down thanks d right to the onion and garlic is nice.
And golden brown what we're going to do is we're going to Chuck in a little bit of this authentic Tire Pang Pang curry paste I don't know it doesn't matter we don't we don't really have a recipe we're just having a little bit of fun but tell you what it's going to taste bloody incredible so we're going to dump on I don't know a little bit of this.
Curry paste a little bit more all right we're going to mix that up let that simmer and then there's a couple more ingredients to go on top all right so we started this morning off hunting in the mangroves and We've Ended down here on the beach around a fire with a beautiful sunset and one of the.
Biggest feeds of our lives so that there is what we call an ocean lollipop that is all meat we're going to dip it straight into that dipping sauce get all those juices on it look at that you ready this is going to be buddy incredible oh my good God Mac 10 put that camera down get your ass here that is incredible Babe seriously get in here.
Right now wa way till you wrap your lips around that sauce on that do you want to buy that yeah go you can have the whole bloody thing this is incredibly good oh my God how good is that sauce yeah it's so yum well they've got a big knot ahead of us so we're only able to cook two of those crabs because the pot wasn't big.
Enough so what we're going to do is quickly smash this fade we'll probably be here till about 10:00 t tonight but I'm going to cook those other crabs because um it's better off to cook them fresh and then we'll I'll probably have them later to be honest but if we don't we'll eat them tomorrow for lunch or whatever but that was one hell of a.
Mission good day yeah the sauce is delicious yeah I know that sauce is what it's all about so salty all right we got about 5 minutes of sunlight left and that is it thank you so much for hanging out with us doggies and we will see you in the next video on the next adventure much love.
Doggies did you there is the biggest school of fish over there and I'll show you something that happened very interesting look at the sze well we're going to all right so to the all right so the key to cooking any Seafood it doesn't matter what it.
Want all right the key to cooking these crabs is 100%
