Look at this this is point and blank oh literally the size of that thing's shell is bigger than a head what is going on doggies welcome back to another video all right it's myself and mac 10. hey guys we're out here we're cruising around in a mangrove system we've just entered the water and the goal for the day is to get mac 10 her.
First ever monster mud crab and keep on my fingers sure because she's going to lose her fingers so what we're doing right now is we're in a brand new mangrove system we've never been here before the tide is just about to start pushing out so i've got the bow and arrow we're going to go for a quick walk see if we can get a.
Couple of fish for the fire this afternoon but while we're doing that we're going to keep a keen eye out for this big monster mud crab and see if we can get mac 10 one of these crabs have a look at this this is so bloody good so we're exploring a brand new mangrove system we've never been before and um look we are in the absolute.
Middle of nowhere right now me mac 10 we've both got one of our weapons each she's got the bloody crab hook what is that i know i was looking at it oh my god look at the size of that mullet all right it's a very active ecosystem right now there's crabs there's baby crabs there's mullet there's everything.
Swimming around receiving a laying arrow through one of these mullet that's gonna be so fun there's something down here it looks like a crab no it's a rock yeah that hella looked like a crab hi yeah have a look at the size of this shovel another shark it's coming straight for you.
Monkey oh he's just turned off he's a big dog look at the size of him he'd be he'd go five to six foot he's about as big as oh me way too far away oh that was so close dude it's like a 20 meter shot look at that epic turtle.
Well we've been walking for a bloody hot minute would have been about two two and a half hours we've been steaming through this mangrove system not so much the mangrove system we're walking out here with the bow just having a place in if we could shoot some fish didn't have any luck so what we're doing is we're going to shoot into the actual mangroves now.
And um let's see if we can get mac 10 a big dog crab we seen a couple of females walking around in the water we seen a couple of little males walking around in the water we just let them be we didn't bother them but um i reckon if we start poking our heads up around these mangroves here fight through the sand flies fly fight.
Through the mosquitoes i reckon mac 10 is going to get our crab today what do you reckon looks like it looks like incredible ground but we haven't seen any big dogs yet now this is what we're talking about can you see that over there.
Have a look at this oh let me take this backpack off all right so that is what a mud crab hole looks like now that is home to either a monster well that can only be a monster that is a big mud crab hole.
All right bye bring your stick in then i bring the hook end in first and just really gently feel around don't go crazy you just want to gently feel around your heel like a metal on metal when you hear the shell sometimes they can be like two meters three meters deep.
Yes that's that's a crab did you hear that ting you hear that real metal like crack yes that's a crab right there you've got him you can feel him coming that is a bloody big crab mac 10. but say hi where have you got him no i don't i don't have him anymore why do i just.
Let it be all right so what you're going to do see how your hook's here that's okay he's going to come out you just keep doing it and doing it and doing it eventually you're going to get a real good hook on him and you'll be able to pull him out usually if you can hook him in in the nipper that's the best place because they'll.
Usually tighten up and you can just rip them out come on he's a big dog all right mac 10 has got her first ever mud crab in this hole and it is a big crab it is a proper crab beautiful blue nippers on him he's a big boy come on.
This big guy he's got he scared me i was like i don't want to make this thing angry that's crab and it's an absolute horse all right we've been outsmarted by that crab not really outsmarted but what he's done is that hole actually goes to the left and it hooks around up so it goes down.
Then it goes to the left so that our crabs gone around the corner and we cannot get it out with a hook so i'm just gonna let that let that hole settle we're gonna keep walking around these mangroves and then we're going to come back and get that crab because that was a monster.
We need to get that crab for mac 10. it was a big crab it was the biggest i've ever seen it was a big big big crab all right we'll come back in half an hour we're gonna keep looking around we'll come back and check this hole but you i reckon you've got another one we'll see how we go anyway all right.
Let's go and see we can get another crab that was a big boy mac tan you got to get him out later he's a monster tell you what mate this is one of the most enjoyable things to do so this is like i said before this mangrove system we've never been here before.
And it isn't like your typical mangrove system so this is not mud that we're walking on it's just mangrove roots and it's like very nice sand which is kind of strange but we've only found that one crab hole so far we would have been here for easily three three and a half hours now one big.
Crab hole but like you can see behind me now that water that tide is really draining out so um that's what i want to do i want to walk out there on the reef and have a look if we can pull out a couple of mud crabs off the reef because they're beautiful clean crabs when you get them out there.
But this mangrove system it's not really holding any goods right now is it we got the one that one big hole we're gonna check that on the way back he was a big dog it'd be good to get him out we'll just keep looking persistence always pays off.
We'll just keep searching we've come back to that hole would have been about 45 minutes has passed we've come back to the crab hole let's see how we go all right so at the moment it is mud crab one mucky and matt none we've been here for so long and what this crab is doing it's incredibly.
Bloody smart or it's just incredibly lucky one of the two but its hole actually goes down and then it kicks to the side so when we're putting our steel rod in the hook in the crab has pushed himself right to the back and he's probably about a meter yeah just under two meters back to the left hand side of the hole and you just cannot get him out.
Every time you start disturbing the hole he just runs back into his little corner so very well mac 10 is pretty persistent i would have given up by now but she's still going come on get him she won't let it go it's a big crap trying keep trying you'll get it.
I've walked around this whole area while she's been doing this there's no other holes except for this one so give this a little bit more time see if we can get him out all right well we had to pull the pin on that crab mission because um he was way too smart for us but you want to know something really funny we would.
Have spent about how long was that 40 minutes 40 minutes just then poking around trying to get him out we've walked out here onto the reef flats and check this out that right there is a mud crab and he is just walking around on the reef we've been over there on under that tree for the last 40 minutes.
This little fella's just cruising around on the reef if only you were that easy to catch mate he's not be he's probably probably just go size but we're going to let him live he's a lovely little crab we'll let him go he's way too easy picking anyway let's keep tracking mac 10 we got.
To get another one before that sun goes down i know we should find some up here do all right doggies we're gonna call this episode a girl and her crab.
So what we've just done we've just walked from all the way out there probably about a kilometer and a half we were walking mac 10 reckons i need that crab so we've just walked nearly two k's back to the tree she's gonna try for the third and like.
Third and hopefully last time to get this crab out of this hole welcome to the episode called a girl and a crab all right we're gonna go in real stealth we're gonna see if we can get it and if if it's not if you don't get it this time it's over all right.
Let's get this done all right let's both crawl in there really quietly and if it's outside it's hole you're just going to flick it out all right let's go check out that boat all right let's go in together and be really quiet.
You want to come from the back side of the hole come over here i can't see it go bad grab it grab it no no grab it snipper yeah that's good now pull it back to you pull it back to you look back now you've got it out you've got it you've got it yes.
You actually did a girl and her crab you actually freaking did it it was worth the 2k walk back three times hey connor i reckon you got that pissed off look at that all right it's okay it's okay you can control it with the hook it's fine.
Don't be scared that is her monster crab good job mack 10. it was worth that 2k walk back he ended up getting the size of the claw he pretty much got pissed off just then and walked out didn't he.
That's a big crab all right pick him up are you gonna pick it up we go so just to show you guys how really big this thing is look at the size of this thing that is a monster that's next to mac 10's head there that is a bloody beautiful crab let's get him out in the sunlight and have a.
Look okay so here is that crab that we come back and forth for he was a little bit of a mission to get him out but look at the size of that claw mac 10 you've done it again you know you need to hold this crab yourself right just look at the can you see the colors.
In it it's like this incredible purple greeny bluey purpley color it is an absolute monster of a crab but this is your crab so you need to hold it all right what is it the stubbornness hey yeah that was i can't believe we just walked back that's so funny but it was worth it one crab in.
About five hours maybe longer big boy he's beautiful that is a really really nice crab let's get more all right there she is she's got a crab that is a big dog that's epic it's really heavy i literally the size of that thing's shell.
Is bigger than a head that is a killer crab very good job he's beautiful isn't he all right let's put him out of his misery chuck him in the backpack see if we can get one more around the fire that is a good crab all right a girl and her crab that's a big dog well done mac 10. oh.
Thank you for your help watch your hand how about it too close to that lovely thing come here oh no did you see it yeah good crab all right so.
This is what's going on right now that crab over there is playing funny buggers so we're gonna let him chill we've literally walked five meters away and there's another hole here so listen to this you can hear that that is the sound of a beautiful crab so what we're going to do.
Is get that beautiful crab out oh we could possibly oh my god look at the size of this claw that's a good crab come on baby come out you should be able to get him up on the bank now boom that's another bloody beautiful crab.
That oh there's another one he's a beautiful one he's not as big as your one is he but that is a bloody good crab look at that four fingers the size of his claw four fingers that is a bloody monster you can tell.
He's a male from that big v under the earth the girls have more of all the females have more of a like a sort of a dome shape that is bloody beautiful there's another one for us another thing all right that's two crabs for the pot.
We've still got one over there in a hole we know there's a crab over there that's two in the backpack boy we got about an hour of sunlight left maybe it's gonna be a little afternoon power mission but that is a bloody beautiful crab look at the size of those claws you don't want to get bitten by them.
That will mess you up he's a good crab yes sir oh coming coming coming coming coming yes sir that is another.
Absolute donkey of a crab look at the size of that thing that is a monster look at this he's beautiful he's very clean that last one we got just like two minutes ago he had a little bit of mold grow algae or something growing on him but look at the.
Color of that thing's claws he is an incredible crab yes that's three how's that even possible we've been out here for like no six hours oh six hours we had no luck now we got two back to back.
That is a beautiful crab all right let's see if we can get one more so we get two each we'll call it quits i'm happy with that that's three have a look at these doggies this is what i was talking about when you walk over these reef flats like this you'll find holes in the reef and that.
There is a mud crab i'm not too sure i'm just going to quickly see if we can run up and just hook him out before he runs back into his hole ready watch this he's a good crab oh no he's gone in all right he's gone in his hole let's see if we can get him out very quickly.
Around the nipper oh no all right we're gonna crab in this hole we've just lost the opportunity that is another absolutely weapon of a crab look at this.
So this is actually what i wanted to do today i wanted to bring maki out here on these flats and see if we could actually pull mud crabs off of the reef so most of the time you get these big bad boys in the mangroves but what i've been finding lately i don't know if it's this time of year or it's the moon phase or whatever.
But the last couple of times on a full moon i've been walking the reefs and we've been getting beautiful crabs like this here's another stonker it's not as big as that last one but he's a big boy sitting out here in the middle of nowhere in the reef.
That's epic all right we've got our four crabs we're done and dusted we could probably go get a couple more right now because it seems like it's a pretty hot time of day but four is enough for us two crabs each is a big feed especially when they're this big these crabs these claws that claw there.
Is completely full of crab meat so um they're a bloody good feed and you guys are about to find that out around the fire mac 10 you got your first ever crab we got three yeah my girl that was shocking yeah my girl all right let's put him out of his.
Misery and um we did it what are we gonna do we're gonna start a fire or i don't know we'll figure that out later anyway what a bloody session look at that killer good job miguel good job so sick.
Yeah doggies welcome to outback australia right now we are literally this is way way outback australia i've driven eight hours down south from where we caught those crabs driving pretty much all night and um we are in the kitchen right now so i'm gathering a little bit of.
Firewood we've got a fire cranking over here in the red dirt and um it's been a bloody interesting couple of hours i woke up this morning had a shot of the bow and arrow try to get a couple more fish so we can make a little mud crap and mullet feed around the fire because mullet on the fire is a bloody beautiful way to do it so i'm.
Going to graze on a couple of clips of me fishing this morning with a bow and arrow and first of all i'll show you guys the kitchen and then we'll roll those clips on this is the kitchen for the afternoon.
So this is our big beautiful fire this is where we're going to be cooking the crabs mac 10's on wood judy good job you excited to cook that big monster i'm excited to eat it yeah i know i'm excited to cook them so this has got to be up there with one of the most simple yet beautiful way to cook crabs so what we're trying to do is.
We're going to get this fire down to a big bed of just boiling hot coals we don't want any flames we just want coals there so while this fire pit is down into a base into a big bed of coals i'm going to roll those clips on from this morning when i was out there shooting trying to shoot mullet with the bow and arrow and um you guys can have a laugh.
At how much i sucked or didn't suck you guys be the judge let us fly get down a little bit and um we'll see you guys very soon oh have a look at this thing this is a game changing fishing piece of equipment all right let's see if i can actually plug a fish with this.
It's going to be bloody fun let's go all right so have a look at this there is a massive massive mullet swimming around here in the water they are really bloody big fish look at the size of them so what i'm going to do is i'm going to stash myself up in the bush here.
See if we can put some arrows through those mullet because they are big boys look how many fish are in here wow oh you've got to be kidding me what is going on all right so i'm missing these fish by.
Like a mill not even a mill i think what the problem is i'm aiming a little bit too low now so i'm gonna start aiming a little bit higher this is actually really weird to shoot with usually i do this with just a normal normal target arrow but all we're going to do is we've got to.
Get our eye and once we get our eye in we're sorted there's no shortage of fish in here look at this ah you're lucky matt oh look at this here we go come on come past.
look at this this is point blank you're kidding i'm going to get my other all right this is ah well you win some you lose some so there was the bow fishing mission from this morning obviously that is a brand new.
Bow fishing setup with that line and the retriever and the big arrow and um i suck at it so it's going to take a little bit of practice a little bit of time but super super fun trying to plug up what i was trying to do is get some big mullets we can lay them down here on the coals next to the crabs and have a real big bush feed but obviously.
That didn't happen but that's alright a little bit of practice practice makes perfect so i'm just going to keep trying and trying it out until we get good at it but we've got the crabs down here and they are looking incredibly bloody good so once again here is that haul from yesterday there are some absolute donkeys in here.
Look at this thing there are some monstrous crabs i think that one that monkey got is the biggest look at the size of the claw on him that thing there that's just full of meat that is one massive chunk of meat so we've got four crabs obviously there's no mullet going on the fire today but this is more than enough.
To have a feed this is huge food look at that monster crabs so we've got four crabs that fire is about 10 minutes away from being at a cooking stage it's actually probably pretty good right now so what we're going to do is we're just going to grab these crabs lay them all straight on those coals.
We're going to cook them old school you get a smoky texture smoky flavour and it is a really bloody nice way to cook these monsters two or three more minutes they're going straight on there just like this they're just gonna go straight on to these coals so we're gonna go one.
Get him up in there see if we can get all four on maybe we'll only fit three they're big boys i looks like it's a party for three crabs but that's all right so they're gonna sit over there and then what we've done we've just got.
These other little sticks here it's gonna chuck them on top they'll stop burning and they're gonna turn into ash or coal very soon look at that that's incredible oh you can hear them sizzling away this is what it's all about.
These are going to taste bloody good without that kitchen cannot beat it all right so because this morning's really really bad fishing mission i'm going to redeem myself with this bow and arrow we have a can exactly 15 meters down there and i'm going to see if i can hit this can and mucky's giving me only three shots so i've got three arrows see.
If we can lay an arrow through that can every shot and it's redemption for this morning's horrible fishing mission all right here we go mac 10 three shots and three shots only one oh that went straight through the can that's one of one come on let's go.
Big fish oh that's two is the routine is he going to redeem himself and the can fell over so now i've even got a smaller target oh that's three of three is that a redemption for this morning fishing mission.
That's three arrows in one can 15 meters come on where's the bunnies at all right that's a little bit of fun with the bow and arrow just goofing around while they were cooking but these crabs should be done they've just made a little fork here bit of a stick just like that and there's one.
Beautifully cooked crab they should be pretty well cooked but it's gonna take a while for him to cool down so oh that is a monster that's yours mac 10 your first ever crab look at that this one might may be the biggest actually.
There we go this little fella here's got about another three or four minutes sizzling away nicely all right this is looking pretty bloody good yeah how much of it oh it's a massive fade we're going to be.
Eating like kings all right so the crabs have come off the fire we're just about to pop this claw so you guys can see as well it's the first claw we've popped oh look at that big juicy that's just like a big juicy bit of popcorn chicken right there that's yours my girl is it hot what is.
This yeah it's hot here's one that we popped off earlier incred look at that it's cooked it's cooked actually really well we haven't cracked any of the claws open yet which is the best part of a mud crab but this section cheers ready.
Oh yeah that's perfect that's better than boiling it in water right i reckon that's way better than the boiling in water that's smoky flavor oh my god that's good what i really want to try is that so that there it holds all of the meat.
Let's knock it open and see if we've nailed it or stuffed it oh here we go ready one two three boom there's a little bit of meat left in.
There but that was a big lollipop here we go this is the real taster do you want to have that and i'll crack that one you have it oh yeah you can open this one it has amazing strong like a salty smoky flavor and we've got no spices oh look at this.
Good oh it's all about the cooking on a fire hey yeah it's definitely my favorite way look at that big chunks of mate that's way better than boiling it i love the smoke failure.
Hmm well we have got one hell of a feed down here mark tan she got a first ever mud crab with a with a crab hook and um persistence paid off we literally walked what did it say we walked 10ks on the kilometers i had my phone in my backpack and my phone said that we.
Walked 10ks that day and eight and a half k's of that was to catch her crab because we just kept going back and forth to go and get it but it just goes to show that persistence pays off and we ended up getting that big juicy crab monkey's crab was the biggest one of them all so it's a pretty good way for her to get her first ever crab by.
Herself with the mutt with the crab hook and um so scary but so good definitely been doing it again won't we so i suppose we're just gonna sit here demolish four crabs and we're just gonna roll the swag out here tonight sleep here and we're gonna start a new adventure tomorrow so um.
Thank you for coming on the mission today doggies much love me and mac 10. we'll see you in the next one
