GIANT MUD CRAB CATCH AND COOK – NO FOOD
No oh look at that train ate it ate it ate it ate it ate it yes that's fish that is fish on you're kidding all right the noodle Rod is about to get flogged oh it is getting frogged look at it go oh wow this is a good fish man.
This thing right now is giving me an absolute flogging I can't even turn its head it's not it's not a massive fish but Jesus Christ is strong on the little noodle Rod she's getting pumped right now look at this you're joking on the noodle Rod bra no why dude.
You're joking look at this thing first fish of the day on the noodle Rod how good is this what is going on welcome back to another video look at that what a way to start a day beautiful Queenie on the noodle Rod I'm talking the noodle Rod is the lightest fishing rod on planet Earth.
That thing there just gave us an absolute flogging to start the day that is a real good fish I'm actually gonna keep this fish because this episode we're going hard we're gonna get food we're gonna gather food off the land we're gonna use this thing here as bait I think but that is a bloody incredible fish I'm gonna put him to sleep right.
Now hey what do I have to start a day oh look at the colors in this body thing what an epic epic fish and an epic way to start the day look at the big Gob on him he's an absolute cracker of a fish boy now that right there is a way to start the day my doggies look at where we are we are in Paradise we're in the middle.
Of nowhere it's just you me and the noodle Rod completely off grid right now we've just got the first Queenie or the first fish of the day on the deck I'm excited about that because I've been out Bush now for about 15 days and um I'll tell you right now it has been a slog we've got very very little water left in the troopy I've been living off the land.
The last two or three days has been a grind the moons are wrong the tides are all buggered up and it's just impossible to catch fish so in this episode we're going to be grinding we're going to be working as hard as we can to live off the land catch as much food as we can hopefully by the end of the day when that sun sets we're going to be cooking.
A feast around a fire that's what I want to do we've got one Queenie on the deck we're going to keep that fish either for food or for bait we've got a big steam ahead of us today let's just walk that way see if we can put another Bend in that noodle Rod eh doggies this is gonna be a fun run buckle up oh an empty beige absolutely no one around.
What I'm doing while I'm driving is I'm just looking for big schools of fish in the water here if I can see mullet or whatever we can find just keeping a very very keen eye out down there but have a go that day miles and miles of beach to explore so sick let's keep an eye out there never know.
What you're going to come across eh all right here we go what we need right now is this here the good old-fashioned crab hook because I reckon we might have just found a little bit of a honey hole just ah Jesus when you're bitten by snake in this stuff have a girl this.
If there was ever a place you're gonna get attacked by a snake it's this right here what I think I've seen is a little bit of a crab hole just up here under this Mangrove so we're quickly just gonna go stick this crab hook down there have a look around see if we can upgrade that Queenie so far we've got one Queenie in.
The fridge had to cut him in half to fit him in there he's a big dog so we've got one Queenie let's see if we can chuck a crab on the menu it's gonna be interesting to see what we've catch by the end of the day we could be eating a smallest bottle of seafood boy it's going to be good times look here a possible crab home.
It's only that date it's not deep whatsoever this is a very very bloody good sign see these fresh shells have all been kicked up out of the hole this is a big mound of dirt that crabs kicked up and then here's a hole here look let's go in well it's a lot deeper than that other.
One oh hear that listen to that can you guys hear that sound that's a crab there's a hundred percent a crab in this hole but what this hole does it goes down and it comes up like that and it's sitting up on the roof there I haven't aggravated him too much with the stick his.
How deep are we there is that deep into the Earth so I could probably try to get me arm I got to get my arm Up and Under the feeling we'll give it a crack and see if we can get in there I don't know if I'll get him or not but I hate doing this this is the worst thing to do but sometimes.
What you want to do is if you ever putting your hand in a crab hole like this come down very gently and slowly along the side of the hole and don't move your hand too fast right now I've got my whole arm in this hole oh there he is there well I've got him oh I can feel the crab very gently you.
Want to feel his back swimmer off that's a lag oh we got him I got him I got him I got him out come here oh oh that was a yeah look at this there he is big dirty crab he's got no claws on him.
That's very strange it's very rare to see a crab with no claws he's been fighting you can see there that they're both pretty Old Wounds he's obviously been fighting some other crowd but he wouldn't he wouldn't have gone bad oh he'd just be about size I reckon he's not a bad little crab he was.
Sitting right up on the roof that little buck he's got no claws on him oh we can't keep that let him go he's a good looking crab butt he would have gone sized all right mate get back in your all right we'll keep moving on.
Now this here is probably one of the best signs you will ever find if you're ever chasing mud crabs see how fresh that mud is there see how it's all been pushed up like that there that's fresh that's done within the last couple of hours 100 crab in this hole 100 you can see his little feet marks.
You can see all these little drag marks there his feet walking in and out of the hole he's burying himself a new hole right now oh he's in there look at him you can even see him I don't know if you guys are going to be able to see that there he is hey big dog.
He's small I'm not even gonna bother him he's just starting to dig his new little house look at him he's probably just going to size that one but that's that's what we're looking for someone's like that what is that I think that's a threadfin salmon dude you've got to be kidding me I think.
That's a thread fin salmon eye well I'm gonna try the unthinkable I'm gonna see if I can Jag it with a crab hook that right there is a threadfin salmon dude no it wasn't a straightfin salmon it was a um it was a bloody saw shark.
They're very rare to see them that was a big saw shark just swimming along the edge of the bank here I thought it was a thread bin salmon gotta be careful in here because there's Crocs in this water so we just gotta real watch our backs we're up far enough where it's cross country right now but that was a saw shark that was pretty sick to see very.
Rare Epic all right here's the plan I've just walked up about a k and a half up this Creek here there's not a lot going on there's a couple of mud grab holes but they're not monsters I'm just gonna let them be um I'm gonna start walking back to the.
Trip dog now I'm going to jump in the troopy we've got about a two hour drive south of here to get to another Creek a place that I like to call catfish Creek and we're going there for a reason because now what I want to do is I want to catch a catfish so we've got a big dirty Queenie in the bag that's good chewing also good bait for the rest of.
The day I want to get a catfish I want to get a couple of big dirty mud crabs and I also want to upgrade that as Queenie to something bigger and better eating so we've got one hell of a mission ahead of us today I want to get it all done before that sun sets so we're gonna move our asses a couple of couple hour drive south we're going.
To be in some Dangerous Waters hell Mission boy this is sick fun let's go all right here we go welcome to a place I like to call catfish Creek hopefully we do catch a catfish because there's something I want to do with a catfish today also we've got to catch some big dirty crabs we're going to use.
Our inside voices but because there's a couple of crew up here and a tinny they're fishing down there so field days are going to lower down the decibels a little bit but this is what we're doing check this out here is that disgustingly big Queenie that we caught on the noodle Rod that fish there for the noodle Rod is an.
Absolute slob that gives you a little bit of perspective how big it is actually let's measure it all right tape measure roughly on the nose coming down to the tail 700 and it's about seven oh what are we calling that doggy seven twenty seven fifteen dude for the noodle Rod that is a slob of a fish that noodle Rod's like.
Under a kilo weighted line anyway we're going to be cutting this thing up into little chunks of bait bang head tail and the guts I'm gonna start slicing this up oh we're gonna cut about that far down the tail so we're just gonna chop this part of the fish off because what we're gonna do is we're gonna send this out.
Come on there goes the other half the fish there we go that's what we want right there big fishtail now that big dirty fishtail is gonna get connected to the end of this hand line so if you guys know what I'm doing right now if you're an OG follower you'll know what we're doing we're getting mud crabs.
This is by far the easiest way to catch mud crabs it's so much quicker than walking around looking in crab holes it's got a big bit of fish meat like this tie a couple of knots in it nothing has to be flash that is it we're just going to send this out to the creek we're going to make a couple of these hopefully that is going to turn into a.
Monster mud crab we'll be chewing good big dirty fishtail Bang it's as easy as that I'm just going to lock it off under this log here make sure you come around the log a couple of times split the line through that Center bit there.
Just in case of shark because you do get sharks in these creeks and there's crocodiles sometimes so unless if something pulls out it's not going to pull the line out you know but we're on there's one set so right now we're still left with that big huge chunk of fish there and another massive chunk of fish here so what I'll.
Do is we're gonna keep this in the fridge this is the top shoulder of the fish so this section of the fish here will be the best tasting bit of fish so if we don't get anything out here today we're going to be eating this for dinner but I guarantee you we will be upgrading so I'm just gonna take another sliver off the back of this one here just a.
Nice I don't know about 100 Mil worth cut through that cut through that we're going to stick that one on a bit of string as well that wasn't meant to happen Big Slab of mate on a bit of string gone straight out there that one is connected down to this Mangrove here so.
Nothing's pulling that Mangrove in I'm gonna let it go nice and floppy and loose like this and then every couple of minutes we'll walk around when that line goes extremely tight you know you've got a crab on this one here is the fourth bait on a bit of string send this one out see you later mate.
That's going out there and that one is connected to this Mangrove stick here so when we walk over here in this bloody mangroves bending like this that means we've got fish on but for the meantime we'll just let that line go super Slack just like this that's it doggy or or funniest thing those two old boys.
Over there there's like two old boys in a tinny Just Fishing maybe 50 meters 100 meters down the creek there and it is peaceful out here there's no noise I can hear every word they're saying and I'm walking around talking with a GoPro on my head and the guy goes to his mate hey hey I reckon that bloke's talking to himself and the other the other bike.
Reckons yeah I can hear him hey he's just having a yarn to himself I got no idea that I'm talking to the bloody Field Day fam over here but it would look so strange from their perspective they're sitting in a tinny there's his bloody deadbeat walking up and down the bank lobbing baits out screaming and yelling.
Hi that's bloody funny all right I've got a cast net set up down here I'm gonna get this thing all ready to rock and roll let's see if we can get a pull a couple of mullet off the edge of this bank and hopefully get a big bait out there well well well these goddamn crabs are playing the game.
We've had three crabs come up to these baits in the water now as soon as you start lifting them up to the bank they just let go which is very very strange because usually when you get a big crab hook on hook onto them baits they do not let go man that's their food and they want it like anything so um listen to that see can you guys see that seagull.
It's going off its head right now anyway we've had three crabs on the crab baits no luck we've got two rods out here nothing has even sniffed those rods and I'm getting bloody hungry so down here what I've got is I've got half of that Queenie left over from that's the other half of that there's in the water crab bait this here what we're going to do is.
We're going to take off this top shoulder of the fish so that that bit there is a beautiful piece of meat especially if you eat these raw like you can Sashimi Queenie it actually tastes very very nice it's a firm kind of meat so that's what we're gonna do and of course we're going to use the one and only kamakoto Japanese steel knives.
These things have been in the back of the troopy now for I don't know pushing on a year right now and this is the OG box that we have our very first very bit of ah that we very first started with and look at these things look at the condition of them they are just as good as the day we got them these Knives have been incredible.
In the back of the car and I've got one hell of a deal for you guys on these on these knives when you open the box you get this pretty dope little certificate you get a how-to guide how to clean your knife how to sharpen your knife all that good stuff and then when you pull one of these bad boys out of the box this is what they look like this knife right.
Here is up around a year about a year old now and um it is as good as the diary got him feels incredibly good in your hand Michelin star chefs use these all over the world and I know why because I've been using these flat stick Mac 10 has a set of these in the um house in the kitchen these get used all the time and they're still going strong.
But the Ripper fill it off of a fish I'm gonna use this bad boy right here so we're gonna take this one this is one of my favorite ones we're just gonna come lift up that petrol fin there and just slice straight down there like that smack then what we're going to do is come down the back here they've got a funny bone at the top Queenie so you.
Want to come in from the top look how sharp this knife is dude then you're just gonna follow that bone down boom boom and you're going to get this beautiful white meat look at that meat there that's what we're going to be eating raw now that we've done that because all I want to do is I just want to take off.
This top shoulder we're just going to follow this line in the fish just going to cut straight down there and just like this we've got this incredible bit of meat that's going to get eaten raw it's going to taste the goods look at the color in it oh man we're going to be eating good put.
That back over there that there is a little bit of a snack all right so we've taken that top shoulder off of the fish there now what we're going to do is we're going to rip a little bit of the skin off same knife the big long I call it a Fielding knife but they're mainly these knives are usually like really high quality kitchen.
Japanese steel knives but I use them for everything we're just going to rip through that like that off comes that skin Big Shiny bit of skin Chuck that out in the water for a little bit of barley and then we're just left with this white slab of fish meat all right so now the knife I'm going to use is this one here another one of my.
Favorites this knife here is more for what I used to like to use really finely slice the fish up so we're gonna get this knife each one of these knives is an individually inspected and they also come with a lifetime guarantee so look these things are bad boys there is a link in the description to these knives I'll tell you a little bit about it in.
Two seconds but what we're going to do is we're just going to very very finely slice that fish up into little paper thin bits of fish I don't even have if you guys can see that but I can almost almost see through that thing so I'm just going to take tiny little slices of this fish my mouth is actually watering right now.
Check this out we've got a little chopping board full of raw pieces of fish very very very finely sliced up you need an extremely sharp knife to just cut fish that fine now what we're going to do is we're gonna dig into my pocket here get out of faithful little bottle of Tabasco sauce we're gonna dribble this Tabasco.
On top of these fish tiny little bits of sliced fish out here in the bush we obviously don't have everything to make proper Sashimi but a little bit of bloody Tabasco sauce and raw fish like that we gotta laughing they're just like this we've got one hell of a tray a little entree or a little bit of a starter meal.
Here while we wait for one of these crab baits one of these rods and start screaming if you guys want to get your hands on a set of these knives kamakoto are actually doing a Father's Day special right now as we speak if you didn't know Father's Day is just around the corner and this is a pretty incredible gift for Papa I'm probably.
Going to give for Saturdays to pop a field day actually for um Father's Day they're an epic epic set of knives they come in this beautiful wood ash box you guys seen it before certificate good quality knives like I said this exact box here has been in the troopy but nearer near on about a year now we use things these things day in day out they.
Have not disappointed us so if you guys want to hook your hook your dad or hook pop her up with a set of good old-fashioned knives there is a link in the description of this video also at checkout punch in the word field f-i-e-l-d that'll get you 50 US dollars off each order happy shopping doggies hooked that up with a good set of knives.
Look at this we're eating good while we wait for those crab baits to get snatched raw sashimi oh dude raw fish is actually really good I love this eh little bit of lemon would go good but we don't have lemonaddy.
Queenie's a good fish I reckon Raw that is bloody beautiful all right I'm gonna sit here and smash these little treats hopefully one of these baits go off if the baits don't go off we're gonna pack everything up we're gonna punch up creek a little bit more see if we can chuck a fish a crab around the fire savvy.
No that's ridiculously good look at this string here that is as tight as it gets there's a crab on that and then we're gonna leg it down here hand one hasn't got anything on it look at this that is as tight as it goes there's a crab on that one and there's a crab on the one down the end there so we've got.
Crab crab crab crab dude we could be eating real good I've just finished off that little bowl of sushi or Sashimi it was Bloody beautiful now we've got crab on we'll start with the rod we'll work our way down the bank this is sick come on hopefully we get one crab out of these three we've got three crabs on you well what I thought was a crab is a.
Dirty old Cod all right mate go on going buddy guys all right we've got a crab coming up here there's about a thousand little baby fish he's only got one Claw on the bit of bait I'm gonna give him a bit of a.
String just so he gets a bit of bit of a better grab on it all right he's got two on it where's my hook come on we need this crab around the fire oh no keep coming keep coming eat it eat it eat it.
It's right behind you yes he's back on it yes he's back on the meat oh man I just want to eat one crab around a fire how hard is it here we go we've got good all right he's hooked on come on big dog get up here here we go he's coming up now here we go that is what I come for a big dirty Buck like that is beautiful.
That's what we come for that is the crab we came for big doggy dog yeah we finally got one you're joking let's get that bait back in the water yes uh crab on the deck all right now when you get a crab like this and they're Lively like this one is it's sometimes a good idea to tie them.
Up so you can just get a little bit of string this is a little bit of hay or bailing twine come through one of his Nippers I like to go through the center of the nipple but there's a million ways to do this go through the middle of that vanipa right push his claws up nice and close to his.
Face roll him around flipping back over and then you come above that top swimmer you come above that swimmer there and then all you've got to do pull them tight and lock it off just a bloody double granny knot.
Whatever you want will do the job but now what we can do with this crab is we can stick him anywhere we want he's not going to bite anyone he's not going to hurt anyone his nipples are safe he's not in any harm or anything but that's just the crab tied up like that beautiful he's going to be.
A beautiful feeding Little Crab he's like I said he's not a monster but he's a bloody good crab still Chuck him in the Esky there here see if we can get a couple more all right now here's a little pile of Tinder sometimes what happens with the Tinder around these areas is they become salt.
Thrashed which means this thing is going to be covered in salt no matter how much you bang it no matter how much you bash it they're just covered in salt so it's hard for him to stake a light so sometimes what I like to do is you just go to hell if you just don't stop sparking eventually it'll take a while.
But it can take a while out here a lot of salt in the bushes yeah she's gonna go there's a fire there's a flame so it takes a little while but you'll always get it that's perfect and Chuck a little bit of kindling on top of that.
Boom just like that friends friends and family we've got a fire going now we're just going to load it up put all that on there put all that on there boom the old saltable side she takes a while to light up but once she goes she goes we've got fire I'm just hoping thing cross I'm hoping.
And crossing my fingers that we get another crab on one of these bloody lines out here we've got one crab that's going to be a good feed but two two's ideal a little fly going here check this out look at this look at this can you see the size of that crab right there this is the fishing line there's.
Nothing on the fishing line there's a crab right there dude it's it's big too can you guys see that crab right there he's a big dog fish right here there's a crab sitting just at the back of that leaf there see this flipper you can see he's flipper right there oh.
the GoPro oh man that's a bloody oh yo yo you come here big dog ah come here come here oh that's a big slob dude that's a good grab now that is the crab we've come for look at the size of the claws on this thing the crowd is the crab's dead it's not.
Doing nothing right now I just put it to sleep instantly with a knife you would not believe what just happened then I'm walking along the bank checking them lines and I could see the the crab swimmer like this this swimmer here I could just see it hanging out of the back of that Reed I'm thinking what is going on there and I've like just tapped.
It on the back with a bloody crab hook and I just went whack so I come back with the camera had the camera on my head or in my head I don't even know what happened and then I just dropped the camera as I brought it out but we've got we've got a big dog on the deck look at that that is a real crab doggies that claw there is ginormous so was this one.
He's been fighting look at that I've just put this one to sleep straight away if you ever want to sleep a crab very very quickly humanely I reckon it's even more Humane than chucking him in a fridge most people put him in a fridge or freezer and just let him go to sleep quietly but if you want to sleep a crab at the top there you can see he's a male.
Boy he's got that big V there see how I put a knife in there all you do is put a knife in there and head it diagonally up towards its head crab will be asleep straight away no pain doesn't feel anything but look at the size of that thing that is a cracker of a crab he's got some massive claws on him that's two crabs now and that wasn't even on the.
Bloody line that was just caught sitting on the side of the bank but again nice hard crab look at oh a little bit a little bit of play in there but it's not it's going to be full of meat that is a beautiful crab dude look at the size of that claw God damn all right now we're starting to eat good he's a big dog we've got a nice little fire.
Pump in here getting a big coal base going on that is a much much better crab look at the claws on him all right now we've got two crabs still got a little bit of sunlight left we could get a few more still hey we could be eating real good I'm frothing that's a big boy man.
Big buck yeah doggy all right that's two we're gonna real good looking fire here we've got a couple of slobs on the deck check that out a couple of big old crabs to chew on I'm just gonna Chuck these crabs in this this coals here are going to be that hot we don't want to overcook them so we're.
Just gonna spread out a nice little bed for them just like that crab goes shell down bang straight into the coals same with this big boy I'm gonna Shuffle him over there a little bit get out of the way all right.
That's good man that's putting out some serious heat show down boom just like that we are cooking dinner that looks so good hey doesn't get much better than that my doggies they're looking good you can hear them sizzling sizzling and bubbling and tell you what it smells pretty good.

Come on nah she's not gonna come out but it's still completely edible like that I kind of like it like this sometimes it's way better than overcooking it I'd much rather undercooked well it's not undercooked it's cooked but you're better off cooking it like this than overcooking on a fire like that.
This one could have done with a probably a couple more minutes but there is a whole heap of meat inside that claw there let's see if we can get an OG let's see if we can get ah a lollipop out of this one here we go boy.
