What is going on my doggies welcome back to another video look at this we haven't got a fire going that was a super easy fire to start what i'm gonna do right now is i'm gonna start up a little bit of a barista session there ain't nothing like a coffee in the morning to start one hell of a mission and that's what we're doing.
Today we are going on one hell of a mission i'll tell you that nice look at this first things first we got to get a fire going and i'm going to tell you guys exactly what is going on today why i'm a little bit sad i'm a little bit angry i am very very very bloody tired and this eat what you catch challenge.
It is getting better the better of me i tell you what all right let's go get the billy have a look at this tell me a better way to start a day i bet you can't there is no better way to start a day than banging a billy on a fire just like this look at that.
This is what it's all about right now billy on the fire that's the way to start a day right there there it is she's boiling already that is what we want to see oh man get in me all right so the reason that i'm bloody tired i'm bloody hungry and i'm a little.
Bit grumpy is because yesterday i set out on a mission trying to catch food and man it was it was so hard i went to a brand new mangrove system trying to get myself a feed and i just couldn't get it done there was no good fish there were no there was no crabs there was nothing around so i hunted crabs until 2 30 this morning i drove then i got in.
The car i drove to this place i've had two hours sleep just woke up we're back here we're doing it all again today what i want to do is i want to go into a brand new mangrove system we've got absolutely no food in the troopy right now i want to see if we can get ourselves a little bit of food breakfast lunch and dinner we've got no food in.
The car what i would love to do catch a massive mud crab for lunch and eventually at the end of the day some point shoot a shark with the bow and arrow if i can shoot a shark with the bow and arrow oh my god man that's one hell of a day so that's the goal look anything could happen right now anything could happen out here but um things are.
Looking up we've got a coffee we've got a beautiful little fire let's go next time i see you guys we'll be in the mangrove system we'll be shooting fish we'll um show hunting crabs shooting fish and hopefully eventually we might get a shark with the bow and arrow all right doggies i'm gonna have this coffee we'll jump over.
The back there we're running the mangrove system and we'll see if we can get a shark with the bow and arrow and a little bit of grub on the plate i'm starving oh tell you what mate this is deja vu from last night we're going back into another mangrove system.
As you can see it is bet it is dead low tide right now this car is completely drained out which is kind of in our favor for hunting crabs but not so much bow and arrow so we're just going to go for a little crab hunt see if we can find a monster mud crab in these mangroves somewhere.
Hopefully we can get one under our belt the problem the problem that i'm gonna have is is that it usually takes the tide around six hours to turn around so right now it's nine o'clock in the morning it's a dead low tide so what's that three.
Three o'clock in the afternoon we should have a full high tide but this is going to be underwater and that's when the little sharks come in that's when the fish come into these mangrove systems and that's the time where we can get the bow and arrow out and we can really use it to its potential but until then we're kind of waiting for.
Tides and we'll just walk around look for some crabs but like i said last night i'd love to get a shark on the bow and arrow could be a little bit of a far pitched expectation but you just never know matt you just gotta be in it to win it don't you this is sick though it's a nice way to start the day coffee.
On the fire now we're walking around with a crab hook trying to find some big dogs have a go at this this is the perfect little place for a crab to live nice big deep hole there over here you've got this massive knuckle that's a big crab's knuckle.
Obviously he's uh he's been fighting someone for this hole or that's a big that's not a bad sized knuckle of a crab so there's nothing looks like there's anything sticking out but oh that's a crab that is a crab every day of the week all right we've definitely got a crab in.
This hole you guys can hear you can hear that through the stick that's hitting this that's hitting the back of his shell all right we've got a crab in here let's see if he wants to play the game let's see if we can get him out oh yes that's what i'm talking about baby.
That was easy oh come here come here look at that that is beautiful that's what we come for that's a donkey here's a beautiful beautiful crab about bloody time too look at this thing this is the reason i'm walking around here that is the finally we finally.
Forgot ourselves a little bit of grub here's a big boy here's our big beautiful crab check that out big purple blue color claws look at that that is the business right there those things will mess you up man here's a big crab big beautiful male you can see the buck from underneath there he's a beautiful crab this thing is going to be.
Bloody amazing took some serious time to catch him but we finally got him look at that he's a lovely crab the strength in these things is phenomenal man that thing is like ripping my arm in right now he's gonna go real good on that little fire we made up on the bank there.
Beautiful crab we're chucking him in backpack with a little bit of a little bit of a more to walk while this tide's low we'll see what else we can find but that is i'll tell you what my mouth's watering right now my favorite my favorite food in the ocean right here right now all right we'll keep punching on see if we.
Can see anything else out here that is a bloody beautiful way to start the day that's breakfast oh yeah the first piece of food of the day that is an oyster extremely random random place for an oyster to be grown there isn't really many and there's a.
Tiny one here but that thing is a slob of an oyster that is going to be the very first thing we eat on this mission that is going to be a bloody delicious and we found one of my favorite things to eat again things are looking up i'm going to get into that right now how good is that just a random oyster.
Just sitting on the reef here look at him it's not a bad size too oh that's a slob inside check this out make sure you get all of that big juicy bits of meat there i'm just gonna give him a wash there it is big beautiful juicy oyster have a look at that thing.
That's a nice little treat right now oh man love it i absolutely love them matt if we can find a couple that's really good if we can find a couple more of them i'll be a happy boy that's so sick all right one oyster one oyster one crab let's keep trucking.
all right check this out i want to show you guys a little bit of a trick when you get a crab this is just a random this is just a little bit of mangrove stick what i'm doing is i'm just shaving the ends off of that stick into a little bit of a.
Point just so that just so the stick tapers down just like that there what you can do when you get a crab this is a pretty bloody interesting thing right the crab claw actually or obviously the crab claw opens and closes what you can do is you can grab the crabs claw like this okay.
You're going to shut it pinch the crabs claw shut like that then you're going to grab this stick which you've just tapered down and you're going to stick it in the top of the crab's claw like this doesn't hurt the crab in any way it's just a little opening there but now once that crap.
Once that stick is in that crab's claw it actually stops the claw from having being able to open so right now that crab claw is completely shut i can handle this crab however i want and that stick is stopping its claw from opening up see that there so now you can let your kids play with the crabs you don't have to tie them up.
The crab can freely run around and um at that stick there all that's all it's doing is stopping the opening part of the claw there so pretty nifty thing very very obviously that's not my i didn't come up with this i was showed this by someone but that's a bloody game changer what they actually do is this this crab's dropped his other claw.
Unfortunately but that's all right it happens what what they can what i was showing is they actually snap the back leg of the crab off so they snap off this little leg they'll grab the leg and they'll stick it in the top of the claw there and it stops the crab being able to open it's not in any pain right.
Now it doesn't hurt the crab it's just it's just like tying our elbow from here to here we wouldn't be able to open our elbow because there's something locking it same as using a stick so that's not a bloody bad little method when you catch a crab you can stick a stick in there like that it's not in any pain and it's pretty bloody good it's very nifty.
There we go he's a beautiful crab let's keep pushing on that is a pretty bloody nifty little way of keeping his claws shut but it's not bad at all we chuck him in the backpack and we'll um we'll keep pushing on let's see if we can grab something for breakfast something else for breakfast this crab i'm very happy with this crab.
My mouth is literally watering right now i think what i'm going to do is we're just going to head straight back to where we had that fire and we had a coffee start that fire back up we're going to cook this crab man it's going to be so good i'm so bloody hungry i'm very excited about eating that beautiful crab.
And then what we'll do is it's going to take a little while to cook the crab get a fire pumping and stuff so by the time we do that this what you see here is going to be completely full of water the tide is going to completely but where i'm standing right now it'll be about chest deep maybe even a little bit deeper on.
The high tide so this water is going to start rushing in as we're cooking that fish so hopeful cooking that crab so hopefully it works out it all pans out quite well by the time we finish eating or should i say destroying this beautiful crab for breakfast this is going to be full of water we'll be able to get the bow and arrow to come back in.
And then we'll have a little bit of fun with the bow and arrow this is going to completely fill up with water very soon man i'm so just the fact that i know i've got a crab in my bag makes me happy dude literally mouth is watering right now a little.
All right let's go keep a fire in the ass this is too good so all right so the way that we're gonna boil the way that we're gonna cook the crab today is we're gonna boil it in salt water over the fire in this big juicy pot right here but the issue is right now is getting salt.
Water the tide is completely at its lowest point right now it's about a kilometer walk that way before i can even find any water so what i'm going to do is i'm just going to get this little shovel we're just going to take one or two spade fulls of or shovel heads full of water out of here or sand should i say.
Just make a little bit of a hole just like that and then we'll just let that water settle this water is going to settle and there's going to be a place for me to grab water from because right now as you can see the sides inside just completely bone dry let this water settle for about two.
Seconds and we'll um get enough salt water in here to cook our crab all mate tell me what that bait's walking a kilometer that way to go and get salt water and then walk in a kilometer back with a big heavy bloody big container of water we don't want too much water because we want to boil it as.
Quick as we possibly can we only need about 100 ml of water in the bottom of that pot we're only cooking the one crab so it's probably just about enough water there i might grab a little bit more but it's as simple as that mate a little bit of salt water didn't even have to walk far from the.
Car oh that's bloody hot all right what we're gonna do here we're gonna do the old 10 peg trick bang ten pegs right in the middle of your fire sort of keep them as high as you want but basically what this is gonna do is oh that is hot man.
That's gonna be a platform for our water to sit on so we can get as much oxygen as much airflow as we can underneath that pot there just like this this is probably one of the quickest ways to cook if you had a frying pan or you were doing anything out in the bush.
You put stuff or little little steel tent pegs like this over your fire or in your fire super stable that's going to sit there that gets a whole lot of airflow going underneath there and then you can just feed sticks in it the whole entire time get that fire boiling get that fire roaring.
Look at that all right we'll chuck a couple of sticks under there that fire's gonna light up we're gonna have boiling water in absolutely no time so all right now we can officially say welcome to the field day kitchen because we are now not only cooking a mud crab.
We're getting bloody experimental out here that water is boiling over there on the fire that's not going to take too long at all when you use those 10 pegs to hold it off of the coals you get a lot of heat happening under that bloody little um billy that we're using and the water boils very very quickly so that's not going to take too long over there.
But what i've just done is i've come into the troopy i've just opened up all my food drawers trying to find something to go with the crab we are bone dry man we ain't got no food in the car but what i did find is i found a little thing of coconut milk and i found a good old trusty backup jar of vegemite what i'm going to do is i'm going to try to make.
A dipping sauce mud crab alone is one of the most incredible tasting creatures in the sea but when you've got a little bit of a dipping sauce and you can dip that big lollipop into a dipping sauce how that is what it's all about so what we're going to do we're going to make a coconut cream and vegemite dipping sauce i'm going to mix these two together in.
This little stove down here and um we could be coming up with something really good right now we could also come and be coming up with something really horrible but i highly doubt that vegemite is tip top coconut cream is tip top and like crabs you don't you don't get anything better than a mud crab so i'm going to make a.
Little sauce down here by the time i do that that water will be ready and then um we're cooking crabs i'm so excited oh look at the vegemite dipping sauce man this could be next level.
Look at the color it's going it's going like a chocolatey color slowly melting away look at that that didn't take long at all that water is boiling we've got a handful of incredible mud crab here i'm gonna plonk him straight.
In the pot ready set boy oh the body's going in the claw yeah doggies that is what it's all about oh my god we're gonna be eating good don't freak out if the bloody crab legs are moving it's just its nerves the crab's dead there's always someone in.
The comments section and the crabs are alive man what do you think i am i love animals all right fire is pumping crab is cooking life is good baby all right let's go back and attend to this busted us sauce that we're making that.
Crab's to take about 10 minutes 10 to 12 minutes on the boil and it's going to be hey siri start a 12 minute timer 12 minutes starting now cheers darling here we go check this out i've got two saucepans right here both full of goodness.
This one here is coconut cream with vegemite brought to the boil simmered down look at that that is our australian this is going to be called the new australian dipping sauce in this pot we have well you guys know what's in there that's one of the most beautiful bloody things in the.
Ocean let's see if we can crack open one of these big lollipops have a go at the size of that claw that's that's what it's all about man let's pop him open see if we can get a feed out of him here we go aha ready you know that it's cooked to perfection.
When it pulls away like that that right there is a massive chunk of meat oh man look at this this is going to be that good favorite just want to bust that little bit of the shell there oh there we go all right let's give this dipping sauce.
A run that is a massive chunk of meat that is a busted ass dipping sauce right there let's do this vegemite coconut cream dipping sauce ready set cheers doggies oh my god flavor bomb this is flavor stations you're kidding me that's actually not that's actually not bad whatsoever.
Look at this how bloody good oh man oh wow see if we can get this out perfectly ah here we go come on come out oh yes look at it.
Look at that here we go into the bloody dipping sauce mate that is what he did look at that man are you kidding me right now oh my god you don't understand cooking the crab in the salt water usually i like to put a crab on the.
Coals you just whack it straight on the coals but cooking him in the salt water honestly you just get that salty flight well it's just a lot saltier it's just so good man hey oh ready watch this lollipop coming at you.
Bob oh my goodness you're kidding me you got to be kidding me straight into the vegemite straight into the big gob right it was worth every single second of waiting for this crab honestly tell you what mate you're not eating crab properly unless you're slurping.
You're making slurping sounds that's the only way to eat crab i'm not leaving any man this is what i'm eating the legs i'm not leaving any meat out it is so good these flies are thick man these flies are everywhere they're hectic they can smell it too i i don't bloody doubt them it's bloody.
Beautiful all right what i'm gonna do is i'll just sit here knock the rest of this crab off and then um we'll wait for that tide to push in still got probably about two hours before that tide's even fishable so we'll just give it a little bit of time.
Wait for that tide to push up then we'll get the bowl and arrow out we'll go back out into the mangroves and we'll see where the afternoon takes us so good now that i've got food in my stomach mate we're we're on i might make another quick coffee sit back for a little bit and then we'll punch back out there get the bow and arrow see if we.
Can plug a shark or a big mullet for dinner that's the guy that is the plan right now i'm really really enjoying this crab so good mmm ma'am look at this there's a massive school of.
Mullet right there just behind on the back of that tree there's a big school of mullet sitting right there i couldn't sit in the car anymore i'm sitting in the car sweating my tits off i was like man i'm just going to get the bow and arrow and start walking around you can still see here this mangrove system still hasn't filled up with water.
Yet it's coming but it's starting to lick the edges of the mangroves here which means it's going to start filling up very fast very soon but there's a lot of fish coming in with this tide i can see sharks out there i don't know if you've seen that fish jump there's a fish splash it is all happening i can see.
Three shark fins over there oh we're on here if we can plug a shark with the bow and arrow that is that is good man if not we'll see if we can get a mullet or something else for dinner tonight but have a look at this the ocean is just alive man it's fully alive right now look at this.
Look at this there's just hundreds of whiting and trumpeter swimming around down here at the back there you can see shark fins look at the conditions it is off its head little shark fins are all floating around out the back out there they're going to be too hard to shoot but um when they come in close they'll.
Be nice nice target heaps of big mullet just here look at that there's a little shark right there actually look at that shark i'm gonna put a gopro on my head oh there's another shark look right there look at him oh look at this for a shot ready i would have smoked that thing.
Just then i won't do it though we'll wait for the right time all right we've got three sharks up here one two three this one's a little bit too small look at him he's coming right in at me look at this oh that's a good one out there that's a.
Good shark out there i'll take him no shortage this is so sick dude this mangrove system right now is alive it is it is like on fire right now there are baby sharks absolutely everywhere there are mullet there's grunter there's a massive flathead very basically like every kind of like small fish that would come up.
And push up into the mangrove system on high tide they're here right now it is off its head but i've only want to take one shot and i want to be selective so i'm not just going to start shooting fish for fun i just want to get one more fish for dinner and then that this video is a wrap i'll be so happy man all we're going to get is a.
Fish for dinner ideally i'd love a shark now there are so many sharks cruising around in the shallows but they're all about they're all about 300 to 400 mil long they're a little bit too small to shoot i'd love something a touch bigger so if we get the opportunity we're going to run with that but if not there's a couple of big mullet around mullet are.
Beautiful eating when you put them in the coals we'll just keep a keen eye out but it is just alive man there is just stuff going on everywhere right now it's only just started the water's only just started to trickle in that water you can see in the background there it's about ankle deep and it's full of fish man sick we'll keep crossing around.
Hopefully we get the opportunity out of shark ah it's gonna be so good if it happens ah this is sick look at this oh man here we go come closer come closer to me big dog come closer come closer that's right oh no way oh that was a big.
Big diamond um that was a big silver diamond bloody mullet i should have just taken my time then too excited that was a big diamond mullet it was a big dog big black one yeah there's no shortage of fish out here.
Though her first shot of the day no good let's keep pushing on it is happening right now i can see dinner i can see the most perfect shark ah get me through here i can see the most perfect shark it's about 15 meters up here what i'm going to do is i've got it's.
Got to really come slow what they do what i notice they do is they do big circles on these open patches so i'm just going to slowly sneak up on this shark it's perfect size it's about 600 mil long 550 600 long perfect eating size just for me.
This is sick look at this okay here we go it's just cruising around out there right now i'm going to chuck you guys on my head and um i'm going to stash myself up in the mangroves and see if we can pull pull this off.
Oh there's two there okay there's one of them is perfect so i was eating shark i'm going to put you guys on my head and see if we can land this shot it's just it's about 15 meters away at the moment it should come towards me all right i had had gopros going on check this out so.
All right we've got a shark on here that was a crack shot we've just smoked a shark we've just pumped a little shark beautiful eating size yes beautiful beautiful shot we did it oh you kidding me.
Look at this little thing you've got to be joking about let me put this bow and arrow away look at this man you're kidding you stay there stay there check this out we came out here to pump a shark with the bow and arrow and look at this beautiful little thing this is a really really good eating size.
Shark he is beautiful man it's about 600 700 mil long look at the look at the gob on him that's the business end of these sharks he has tiny little pins of teeth but they are razor sharp i reckon when i was trying to pull that arrow out of the water he um he was trying to spin around and trying to bite me but bloody good.
Sorry so we should have but have a look at those teeth mate that is the business end of a little shark razor razor sharp teeth we've just smoked this thing with a bow and arrow that's so sick mate this is called a common black tip star shark so you can see the black tip there black tip on its tail not about eating sharks especially when they're fresh they don't.
Taste too bad whatsoever and they're they are prolific in here there's hundreds of them they're just not easy to shoot they're super spookish you've really got to like pull back in the mangroves like we did just then we sort of sat back in the mangroves wait for him to come to us and then we just executed that shot perfectly second.
Arrow this is the second arrow to leave the bow today first one we missed that monster mullet second one we hit this shark perfectly the arrow hit him in the top of the body right there beautiful beautiful shark he's going to be a nice chewing later on he is completely asleep right now obviously he's dead he can't feel a.
Thing but he's a beautiful little shark stoked he's going to taste real good man we're gonna cook that up for dinner we've still got a little bit of sunlight left so i reckon what i'll do is i'll just keep punching around this mangrove system see maybe we'll see if we can put a mullet and a shark together on the fire for dinner um i'm not too sure but.
That there beautiful beautiful little shark look at his little jaws man that's sick mate epic all right let's keep punching around mission complete doggies we did it so so tell you what this could be a world record right now well it is a world.
Record right now we've had three fires in one video that's that's that's out of control man we've had a barista session this morning we've caught the most incredible bloody mud crab we cooked him up before and now we're about to cook up some beautiful fresh shark for dinner that sun is pumping down i've had one hell of a day.
Man this has been super fun you know what it's not over yet we're gonna cook some beautiful beautiful fresh shark shot with a bow and arrow of course all right inside this bag here we have beautiful beautiful fresh shark fillets look at this i've just made these incredibly beautiful little shark bites.
That's shark i had a little bag of tandako seasoning which is basically just flour salt herbs and stuff so that's all i've put on the shark that's all we've got oh look at this i'm just going to dust it into this chuck it into this pan wait look at this it looks that good oh listen to that sizzle.
Beautiful fresh shark literally swimming around like 40 minutes ago doesn't get much fresher than this done done done couple of minutes on one side couple of minutes on the next look at that bro that is golden brown goodness.
Man that's looking that good actually that's going to be like crispy crunchy beautiful fresh shark shot with the bow and arrow there's the big troop dog the sun's setting over there oh man life is pretty good i just want to live 4a just doing this.
Right here look at that little system we've got going on there let's stop it that won't take too long doggies they're going to be eating dinner have a look at this man this is a plate of the freshest shark mate ever it doesn't get any fresher than that look at this these golden brown little fish bites or shark bites should i say man.
These things are going to be bloody good that sun is just about to pump down over there with a little tray of fish today was super fun last night was hard work today was fun this is what it's all about if you get the chance get outside try to gather your gather yourself a little bit of food it's the best man check this out little shark bites.
For dinner when a sinking sunset where else would you rather be matt this is living oh wow shark is something that is really really bloody tasty if you cook it right look at that white juicy flesh oh.
That's incredible all right doggies you know the role much love i'll see in the next video hope you guys enjoyed this one as much as i did love each and every one of you much love so funny when you eat crabs it's like it's like human vacuum eye you're not eating crabs probably if you aren't making slurping sounds.
That's the truth if you guys want to make this dipping sauce it is extremely complex get your notepads get your pens ready what you need is you need to scoop one teaspoon full of vegemite you need one jar of coconut cream and you got to be outside in the bush that's it man it is actually really is.
Actually really bloody good i'm going to call it the aussie dipping sauce honestly that's all we had in the car but it's pretty it is actually really good it's not bad at all

I better be invited on the next one 💃
ive been long previous for just a few months and now you are at 1.m subs! i’m so satisfied with you man ive watched your videos since you were just below 100k subs unless 400k then stopped because i received busy and now you are at a million. congrats and godbless constantly
Where can i pick this knife?
That. Is. The. Alternate
I’ve a ask, are all crabs fit to be eaten?
This makes me fell sooo hungry😋😋😋
Good enough thanks that you acknowledged the crab is wearisome. I constantly belief that it goes to also very smartly be alive but I didn't are eager to inquire 😅
What is mudcrab the same to? Rock crab? Dungeoness crab?
I want to attain this asap
