I SPENT 72 HOURS Catching GIANT CRAB – Glean and Put collectively dinner on a FIRE
Warning recent crocodile sighing in this area oh my god oh we got a fish on the handline that is what I'm talking about tell me a better place to cook a feed holy smokes man we're eating proper what is going on my doggies welcome back to another video look if you guys watched the last episode this is the next day last episode we went mud crabbing we.
Tried to go mud crabbing and we didn't get any mud crabs I cooked a big dirty damper down there so we're going to continue this mud crabing Mission what the goal is today is we're going to get filthy big dirty disgusted mud crabs we're going to cook one around the fire this afternoon and that is seriously what's going on.
Sir that fishing rod that we've got out there I reckon there's about a 90% chance that there's a crab that there's a crab on the end of that fishing line oh my God that's a crab and a half oh no I'm losing me footing oh no.
No you're joking did you see the size of that bastard that was breakfast he was still be there that was a big crab bro now that is a way to start a day although we lost the crab he's a big boy it's really hard that Banks like on a 45° muddy slope couldn't get him up any higher I tried to flick him up we just.
Got him out of the water and he pulled back but size crab right there that is what we're going for I've just flopped that bait out again I'll keep packing up the car packing up the boat but tell you what if we can get him on the deck first thing to start the day that's going to be really bloody.
Good I'm going to go down and check this bit of bait if we got crab on we laughing if not it's all good we got a whole day ahead of us problem with today is the wind is supposed to pick up like crazy this time of the year she blows our absolute guts out so uh get ready to get a little bit wet in the boat it's going to be a windy day but we'll be.
Right see if we got a crab on here eh nada nothing all right let's go today what we're going to be doing we're going to be fishing a little finger Creek so we're going to be dropping these pots in some heavy mangroves got big tides at the moment right now it's a.
Low tide we want to be fishing that high tide so hopefully we can get a couple of big dogs on the deck that's the plan arrived on location tide is so bloody low right now yeah look at this warning recent crocodile sighting in this area so we're not going for a swim what I got built on this trailer is this little.
Extender arm now this thing is an absolute Game Changer not only for doing these muddy things especially when you're solo but when you're Beach launching it gives you this extra so your car is never in the water it gives you like 2 and 1/2 to 3 m of length lift that up there Chuck him on the toe ball drop a.
Pin in here on once I straightened up that pin will fall in but that's that's it mate lock the chain on we've just we've just gained ourselves 2 and 1/2 to 3 m so the car's nowhere near the mud tiny can easily go in the water now beautiful let's drop this big rig.
In have a look at this would you look at that when it's in this chocolate brown water heading up creek we got six drop Nets here they're all locked and loaded with bait that's actually the same bait we used in that last episode so that stuff right there is on the nose man it stinks first thing we're going to do is we'll go drop these crab pots bang bang.
Bang along the edge of the creek um obviously right now we can't be H hammering the mangroves cuz it's super low tide but just drop them out I'm going to go concentrate on getting a little little bit of live bait in the throw net hopefully pull a fish on the deck today as well we have a good feed later on but we're.
going yeah this is sick all right this is what we're doing now all crab pots have been dispersed out into the out into this little river The Tide Is Up absolutely hooking right now so um probably not too good for the crabing right now the TI's really really moving but what I'm doing is I'm just going to.
Cut the engine off I'm just going to slowly drift down this Inlet of this little creek here just going to throw this little lure around see if we can't pick ourselves up a fish while this tide really starts rushing in once that tide comes to its high point I'll sort of sort of start crabbing a bit harder then but for now we're just going to start.
Piing this lure and seeing if we can't get ourselves a little bit of a fish on the deck beautiful out here man this is so sick dude look at this there's not a sand man it's just me and the bugs and the birds and the Sanders and the fers living the absolute dream been fishing for about 15 minutes.
Haven't really had a sniff but that's expected it's going to keep flogging the side of these Banks while this tide pushes in see if we can pick up a fish might go check those crab pots living hey little female see you later darl there we go there's a bit of a.
Bloody crab he might just go size you know all right all right here we go that crab right there is a legal crab we've got a crab on the deck there's a buck you can see underneath there he's actually quite a big crab his Shell's quite big but what he's been doing obviously is he's been fighting with other crabs so those two those two claws.
There are not his original claws he's growing them back but dude we got a keeper he's a size crab not a bad size shell on him just those claws they've grown back after box and other crabs but I'm going to Chuck him in the esy we'll keep him alive if we get a bigger one we'll upgrade to the next size but that's the second potp for the day crab.
On the deck ow empty oh stay in there you big boy here we go here we go there's another one he is just a little bit too small but he's got a good Claw on him that one that's one that's a good one you'd want to eat he's a little bit too small three Nets two crabs it's.
Just a touch small this one so he's going back see you L of champ Bo all right that's the second round of CRA of crab pots which we've chucked out now it is so good in here man we got one crab in the bag first pull I'm laughing we're we're we're eating good so now what I'm going to do I'm just going to.
Fish again let them sit for 15 10 minutes come back we'll just keep doing that cycle over over again this is killer we're going to start fishing hard along this Bank just flicking L as that Tide's pushing in you can see the guardis and mullet racing up the side of the creek you're good to get a good fish on the deck as well fishing crab around.
The fire all I'm going to keep flicking lures this is mad just had one of the most relaxing 40-minute drifts down the river the wind is just pushing me at a perfect speed just flicking lures each side trying to.
Pick up something swimming around so far no good what I'm doing is I'm heading back up creek just trolling a lure behind me very slowly we're only doing we're doing 1.9 knots so I'm just trolling this lure behind me twitching it as we go and I'm going to go do another cray pot pool I mean a bloody Crab Pot pool you guys could probably.
Hear that my um engine is squeaky again yes it is we need to get that Bloody can enox out again empty oh that's a crab little bit too small but come on where's the big dogs at at least we're getting a couple of males now yesterday we're getting flogged by.
Females so that's good see you L of you big horse nothing dead around you wow crab on that's a little Buck you can tell he's a male straight away but he's.
Definitely not big enough there you go mate see how Bud might bring these nets in change spots just snaking up this little finger of the creek here looks pretty crabby but the only problem is that we're that we're at the high tide now so we're in a meter of water oh look at the garfish we're in a meter of water right now.
That's a sick spot to put a pot and put one right there once that tide starts draining out we're going to have to get out of here pretty quick so I'm going to drop a pot in here you're joking all right this is what we this is what's going on right now you wouldn't even believe this man I'm in this tiny little creek it's no.
More than I don't know what's that 8 m wide it's 1.5 M deep deep where we're sitting right now I've just chugged out the anchor so we're sitting in the middle of this little creek what I want to do is I want to piff flers down there for a little while have a flick we got all the crab pots out one Crab Pot out here one Crab Pot out here so I can.
Check and then we got the rest of them up the creek there but thing that's funny is no word of a lie you're never going to see it you might see it right there that's a mud crab sitting on top of that that is actually a live mud crab sitting right there right now and he'd probably just about go size I'm not even kidding you he's sitting right there in.
The top of the mangrove see if we can't sneak in there oh he's a bloody good crab man he's a good crab right there look at him oh he' go close close to size I reckon I've got a net in here let's see if he stays there how's he not moved yet oh there he goes he's gone I knew.
That was going to happen was worth a crack could still be worth a crack he's gone here's a good crack that's a good sign we got Nets everywhere in this Creek let's have a flick let's double our chances here right there's a bit of mullet a sinker and a.
Hook just going to sit it out there just like that look at that fresh bait is always better than dead bait right so what I'm going to do is I'm going to get the noodle Rod out fish on Fish on the bait I think my bit of bait's too big all right he's got it in his Gob he's swimming away Ready set go set the.
Hook bang that is a little bit of live bait right there my doggies look at that that's a little guardy and that little thing there is going to be Psycho live bait that's good bite oh we got a fish on this man are you kidding it's going off out of here my.
Doggies it is absolutely going off we just put a little garfish on that handline in there so there's a nice live garfish out there now didn't even know this little fell on there he's a prickly little bastard but that is a nice little Cod look at him ow going let you go buddy so just chill there's a nice card he'll go back see you later when I was.
Flicking that lure before a baramy smashed my lure right here at my feet it wasn't a big dog but still it was a fish I still got to go down this little creek here and check all me pots but I'm having too much fun fishing is that fish oh we got a fish on the handline I think it's a fish it's not.
Big it's coming towards me but it was only out there for about 5 minutes oh no it's stuck in a tree oh it's a bar is that a bar Mundy you're joking what is it what is it oh that's a big dirty stinking Mangrove jackbo oh my goodness yes doggies doggies that is what I'm talking about juicy juicy Mangrove jack smashed that live garfish here's that.
Garfish here look still got it there still got the line in it but that Mangrove Jack pumped that garfish within I don't know that was only out there for 5 minutes max seeing that handline screaming we've got a juicy Mangrove Jack he's going to be so good around the fire I'm going to put him to sleep right now Chuck him in with that crab we got a.
Crab we got a big Jack that's what it's about here's a beautiful one too yes I want to get that bar I seen a bar I want to get him but that mangra Jacks phenomenal you'll be a good chewing around the fire later catfish in a crab small crab small cat catfish do not want a catfish man get.
Out you don't want to be getting spared by one of these little fellas mate see that's why he's stuck in the net cuz I've got these little abrasive fins and they're extremely extremely if you get stung by one you're not going to have a great time eh all right I'll get him out oh there's a crab look at a tree so.
There's another cve in there he's obviously not big enough too lot of power this pot's got to have something in it it's in such a good spot oh we got a crab we do have a crab again small no good lucky last pot come on be a big rig in it be a big.
Rig oh he's hanging off the side not big enough he's only a little little baby nice little Buck Rock Hard he'd be full of meat feel that that's like rock but uh no good see if how oh tell you what mate I'm having an absolute bloody ball out here look at this that tide is really starting to drain out right now so is.
The Sun that Sun's going to start pumping down but I might start doing is heading back to where that car was parked up and we'll uh make a little bit of a game plan from there I want find somewhere good to camp tonight cuz last night was an absolute show there mosquitoes and sand flers I don't want to be camping there that's where we woke.
Up this morning so what I'll do is I'll troll a lure back to the boat ramp see if we can pick up a nice juicy fish but we got a good feed I can't wait to start a fire we got we've actually got a decent feed put together so uh that's it doggies next time you see me I'll either be bending rods or putting boat boats on trailers.
ow what we're doing is as you guys can see I'm driving on a hella corrugated Road I've got some of me best public attire on because what I'm doing punching into the closest town we're going to go get a couple of condiments if you guys watched last episode I'm actually out here with.
No food like so you seen in that little bag I had flour and that was just about it flouring water to make damper but what I'm going to do tonight I'm going to treat myself as it is a Friday afternoon I'm going to punch into the closest town it's about 30 minutes from here going to go treat myself to a couple of cold beers because um I never.
Usually drink on a out filing so my blch into town get a couple of cold beers I'm going to get a lemon and a couple of condiments to cook out these crab and fish I'm actually super excited for it so uh that's what we're doing right now I'm going to walk into this shopping center Center smelling like a fish but um who really cares eh all here we go we.
Are home I've done the Run we've got the condiments we got a couple of cold tin sun setting in the background over there we've even went and scaven scavenged ourselves some of the best firewood this stuff here you call hardwood it burns it's one of the best things ever to make damper with because the the coals from this wood phenomenal anyway this is.
Where we're going to be sleeping tonight river right there I'm going to go get some bait I'm going to launch out another Rod but this is home doggies this is where we're going to be cooking up our feed I'm starving you know what was the most tempting thing ever just then in the shopping center I'm walking around I'm getting a couple of lemons.
And a couple of things to make dinner and I'm walking past these Packers of chips and I'm going my mouth's just melting away but didn't do it didn't get the chips because I know we got something better than that we got a crab and we got a fish to cook up so uh let's dig in I'm going to start setting up the car start a little fire down here get a.
Rod out it's going to be a good afternoon have a look at that this has got to be the most perfect little setup here eh Camp up top it's blowing about 20 knots from the West right now so she's pretty windy but you got this epic little wall here obviously.
The ti comes up at some point and washes that away but you got this beautiful little tide line and someone's at a fire area before that's where we're going to have our fire tonight no wind down here blowing our titties off up here it's perfect thing.
All right we got a nice little pile of hardwood here that's going to go up what you don't want to be doing is is doing what this guy's done see that crab there that is a tiny crab dude somebody's eating a fully undersized crab just left the evidence behind look if you're going to break the.
Rules at least get rid of it don't just leave it here anyway don't be this don't be that guy who comes in catches undersiz crabs because ruins ruins it for everyone else you know and if you are going to do it just play play smart and grab the sh grab the crab shell and throw it in the water like.
That silly boy all right that fire is going to start pumping let's go start prepping our food oh here we are cooking up a feast and do you reckon do you seriously reckon that you could just cook up a feast in peace soon as that Sun starts hitting that Horizon.
The Flies just go into absolute turbo mode and they're just going everywhere they possibly can and your eyes up your nose and your ears so I've had to put me fly suit back on we've got the fly suit engaged so there's no fers attacking me right now this is what we got going on in the kitchen half a lemon and then cut in.
Half again little bit of chili little bit of onion little bit of bloody uh garlic aluminum foil good F good old fashioned knife and a cold cold beer now I just got all of this from the shopping center before because we're out here with absolutely no food we probably got about I don't know 15 minutes before it's going to be dark so we are 100%.
Going to be cooking in the dark which is I have absolutely no problems with cuz I'm actually going to do a big night tonight I'm going to stay up extremely late we got a high tide 12:00 so I'm going to be fishing until that tide pushes in and then sucks back back out fire is looking incredible everything's good man how could it not be good when.
You're looking at that look at it bra all right I'm going to keep cooking I'm going to show you guys what we're going to do with this fish it's going to be look at this thing hey if you're if your mouth is not watering right now You' seriously got something wrong with you because.
This holy smokes man we're eating proper like we're proper eating good I guarantee you you didn't eat this good at home tonight and we're in the middle of nowhere right now that's a freshly caught Mangrove Jack well all the ingredients which were on that chopping board before it's been stuffed in it's got a massive block of butter on top.
Same on the bottom three layers of lemon little bit of butter same on the top butter lemon garlic onion chili a ton of salt we're going to wrap that that bad boy up we're going to go drop him over on the fire over here we've got our crab look at the fers the Flies are getting into it there's that beautiful crab that we got today he.
Going to be a good cheer as well like I've said in previous videos if you want to put a crab to sleep and you don't have the time all you do is you grab a knife diagonally through straight down there you'll put you'll put the crab to sleep straight away a lot of people say you put him in a fridge put them in a freezer but that's not Humane wait would.
You want to be put in a bloody freezer and die no man I'd rather just get quickly so this is what you do with a crab you just grab a knife straight through there he's out of it he's out cold very quick very Humane that's going to be our dinner as well o we're eting good I'm going to wrap this bad boy up two more layers of Al foil on top wrap.
Him up he's going to go over on the FL tell me a better place to cook a feed go on bust it in that comment section right now you you won't be able to do it we got a hell of a feed right here this is what we're going to do first thing that fish is going to sit there crab is going to go on his back and I'm.
Going to keep them quite far away from that fire cuz that fire is radiating a heap of heat actually heat the heat is bouncing off that wall and coming back at me but got a lot of bed we got a big better coals under there if you can see that that's not going to take too long to cook that is generating a heat de heat.
Right now beautiful crab sitting on the FL big dirty Mangrove Jack wrapped up ready to eat oh my goodness look at that Bo I'm very excited right now I'm actually so excited first things first what we're going to do now we're going to have a quick quick beer then we're going to go and get the thron out and we're going to um put a rod out and see.
If we can get a fish for fish tonight just for a bit of fun because that's what we do we don't stop moving ever so now I'm going to get the throw net we going to have a throw if we can get a couple of live mullet we're going to uh throw a bait out only using live bait but cuz if you use dead bit you're just going to catch catfish catfish are H up.
By go all right throwing it let's go quarter of the net under over your shoulder the rest fitty fitty it up make sure there's no tangles in there 50 50 bang we're ready to fly look at this for a bit of fresh bait bait doesn't get much fresher than.
