IS THIS THE KEY TO HAPPINESS? –Now not a CATCH AND COOK– Exploring empty Indonesian islands. EP 33
IS THIS THE KEY TO HAPPINESS? --Not a CATCH AND COOK-- Exploring empty Indonesian islands.
YEA DAWGIES welcome back to another one!
I had a Hella time in the making of this video. We set out to do a catch and cook video but mother nature had different plans, big swells, strong wind, and rain made for a day of exploring an empty Indonesian island which in my eyes is the key to happiness (being outside doing what I love)
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR WATCHING!

Oh that's big no no no no no no no no oh man i can't even touch the bottom oh sorry mike man if you fell in here you'd just be you'd be dead what's going on doggies welcome back to another video.
It is bloody beautiful to have you here okay so right now we are back on the same island that we were on in last episode i've come back this island is way too big way too beautiful not to explore more except mother nature she has different plans.
It is blowing its absolute head off right now it's been raining there's massive swells and massive tides so this is my first glimpse of the ocean right now and uh she's definitely putting on a show for us today ladies and gentlemen this is psycho so i don't know if you guys can.
Hear me because it is absolutely blown again right now but look at this ocean no way i've literally walked about three and a half hours this morning to get to this point and it's um wow so the mission for today the original mission was.
To come down to this cliff here fish somewhere here behind me um do a little bit of a catch and cook video you know catch a fish start a fire cook it up except the uh the elements are completely against us right now there is no way in the world i'm fishing down there solo that's just super.
Dangerous so uh everything that i had planned has gone out of the window so it's just going to get exciting from now on in i have absolutely no idea what i'm going to do i've just literally walked about three hours to get to this point on the island and uh it's completely unfishable.
This is psycho like look at this current out here dude that's scary man whoa whoa whoa oh my god look at this water it's like a washing machine bro this is psycho it is so windy right now oh my god there's no way in the world we're fishing this spot.
Man if you fell in here you'd just be you'd be dead like you'd be just you just get ripped straight down there that current is insane all right so we're completely absolutely winging it now because like i said the plan was to come here to a catch and cook i've just walked all.
The way here and it's unfishable this is super dangerous by myself so uh what are we gonna do i'm not too sure what we're gonna do right now obviously this side of the island that i'm on is just getting smashed by wind so where we caught that big barracuda last.
Time i'm gonna guess i'm guessing is gonna be like the wind will be behind us except we're fighting a massive swell today so uh i don't know what we're gonna do man i suppose i'll just keep walking we'll just walk as far as we can as long as we can until we um.
Find some either somewhere to fish or i'll walk back to where i parked the bike this morning and we'll go from there but uh we're definitely fighting the elements today doggies sick but long walk there's a mad looking little beach down.
Here and it's kind of in like a little bay or a cove see that sort of shape there so maybe that's going to be out of the wind i don't think it's fishable like those wipes down there are psycho but let's try to get down to that beach and we'll uh i don't know no idea let's just try to.
Get down there oh this is killer look at this little beach it's like our own private little beach no one around so slippery all right we made it it is definitely going to be unfishable but man this is sick this little beach.
Look at this joint absolutely nobody here blowing its absolute tits off yeah this is killer i could easily camp here one day that tide's pushing in so fast oh man just like walking around looking for like octopus or something in these little holes but.
There's not a lot there's a little eel there so this spot's like pretty much unfishable as well but it's a pretty sick little beach we'll remember this place on a nice day maybe we can do like a camping mission here right now it's not what i'm looking for trying to do a catch and cook video.
It's not it's not working out right now but it's all good because this place is sick man all right let's do a little bit of a treasure hunt i want to go through this rubbish see if we can use one piece of equipment that we're going to use throughout today either like an old fishing lure a sharp.
Stick i don't even know what i'm looking for but let's see if we can go through this this tide line all the way along here and see if we can find a bit of rubbish that'll be useful today check this out this is like a whole entire tideline just full.
Of plastic bottles man it's like so bad there are plastic bottles from that side all the way down all the way up to that cliff there it is just completely covered in plastic bottles it is so sad to see all this plastic and [ __ ] on such an epic little beach man it's actually like heartbreaking to.
See how much rubbish is on this like this is a tiny little beach that i'm on right now and there is so much rubbish plastic bottles and [ __ ] and the worst thing is that i've even got a plastic bottle on my bag right now so i'm going to make a pack to myself right.
Now as soon as i return to bali i'm going to go buy a reusable drink bottle like an aluminium flask or some kind of reusable bottle and from this day in i'm going to use that bottle forever i'm not going to use plastic anymore because this man if we all do our part i'm sure we.
Can do something but this is just disgusting dude anyway we found no treasure in this tied line of rubbish so what i'm going to do is uh i suppose we'll just trek back out of here and just explore man that's all we can do today is explore and we'll try to find somewhere to fish.
Maybe i'll walk back to my bike and we'll have to go to the other side of the island who knows but it's going to be a bloody good adventure all right doggies i'll see you on the other side now there she is look at her there's me black oh that was one hell of a walk but we've.
Made it back to where we left the bike literally in the middle of nowhere right now here she is this is the new black that we've got yes my keys are still in it huh this is our new bike it's actually a little weapon so it's smaller than we have smaller than the one we had in the last.
Episode but this thing's got some power dude it's actually a little beast so let's get back on her head around to the other side of the island and hopefully we can get away from this wind and swell and we can get some fish here we go again ah.
This track is even worse than the ones from last time it's gonna give it [ __ ] how did we do that so easily oh sorry bike come on let's go oh.
Yeah dude this little bike is a beast absolute power this is all right after an absolute mission of a morning we're back in the motherland if you guys watched the last episode you will know.
That just down there we got big mama barracuda so the swell is so much bigger today it's a whole lot more windy this cliff is gnarly look at this i wonder if i could somehow fish off here that's gnarly dude but because the swell is so big there's like this mad blowhole.
Down here five four three two one whoosh man that's so gnarly imagine if you're fishing here hell no [ __ ] dude that like push that was like a shock went through my body then the whole entire like.
I'm gonna have a shower here so gnarly i'm definitely not fishing here welcome back to the fish shack all right so the wind is a lot better here oh man i'm tired from walking ah so the wind's a lot better here but the tide's really high that swell's pushing.
In so no idea how we're gonna go but i'm gonna start flicking i'm gonna use the same rod and reel as last time that light gear and we'll just see how it goes i think it's going to be very interesting i think it's got a lot of um there's a lot of energy in the water right now so.
Let's see how we go okay so i'm going to give myself about two hours here it's now 12 o'clock so it's actually 12 22. so we'll fish here for two hours i'll give myself two hours if there's no fish we'll keep moving because there's a lot of places i want to explore but.
Obviously i know that there's fish here well there was last time so we're casting like this lures this is a storm slow run there's a secret of lures 30 grand 31 grams pretty heavy so um we'll just start pinging lures and hopefully we get a big hook up just so dope to cook something on the.
Little cooker or start a fire ah let's do this come on that's got to be the cast there's like small bait fish out here and every now and then they go like they're scattering across the ocean so something's chasing them just got to try to get its attention or.
I don't know what it is maybe there's a small tuna chasing small bait fish i'm not sure come on oh no man what was that i just lost my lure no way i just got bitten off are you joking i just got bitten off man there's something out there with a big set of.
Teeth no you've got to be kidding me look at that see you later bran spanking you lure that is a clean bite far out i've got one more of them lures left look at that dude all right there's definitely fish out here.
That's insane dude literally just got bitten off that's 158 so i've been fishing for what 20 minutes or something i don't even know when i started to be honest but that's lure gone i didn't it didn't even like strike or anything i must have just come in on the side and bitten that lure off.
But i've got one more in that color or i've got one more in the pink i'll probably try the pink again but i look sick in the water this lure it obviously works i just lost a fish ah let's go again that was very interesting whatever that was had some seriously big teeth.
And it was hungry look at the size of that turtle boy i don't want to be hooking that thing see this tree here it's actually really interesting when i first moved to indonesia i'd always wondered why the hell is this tree always on the rocks like no matter where you fish you'll see.
This tree on the rocks and i've always wondered why man it's so windy out there so this tree here is called a pandanus palm and what the local people do they actually use it for fishing so that is a leaf off the pandanus palm and what you do.
Is you just rip them in half and then you start ripping little shreds off and you get these like fibers like this you rip these fibers off and that there is actually like a string it's like an extremely strong string you get your nail and you rip off all the little fibers and you're left with like a piece of.
Cotton looking string like this is super strong so because they don't have like fridges or eskies out here to keep their bait in they use like small fish like this they'll put the hook on the fish and then they'll use this pandanus palm fiber and they'll like wrap this around the hook and around the fish.
Up and down all the way kind of like binding it on so if you're ever fishing in indonesia and see one of these trees on the rocks you now know why it's here and maybe it'll help you one day because these little fibers they come in handy like i haven't used it yet but i'm sure that one day i'll.
Use it so there's a handy little hint pandanus palm all right let's keep fishing i just thought i'd show you guys because it does come in handy knowing these little tricks when you're traveling and stuff look at this turtle dude i don't know if you guys can see that i just went deep then there's so many.
Turtles out here right now beautiful all right let's get out of here so i fished there for about two hours we had that one whatever that thing was had teeth it was big obviously just completely bit that lure off and um that's it it's so windy man it's like crazy windy i'm not sure if you guys can.
Hear me on the gopro but he's blowing again so i'm gonna head off to another spot but i'm pretty sure where the spot we're going now is this is going to get hounded with wind and swell but i just want to see it so you guys might as well come with me and we'll do a little bit of bloody.
Exploring mate so there's quite a few people asking about when am i when are we going to drop the air doggies merch like the hats and the t-shirts so it's coming it's looking really really good it's taking a little bit of time because of the corona but um it's coming this is one of the shirts.
I'm wearing now and this thing is i'm so happy with it it's nice to wear a white shirt in the sun instead of black so i'm not sweating my ring out and it's really really close like i've got a hoodie made as a sample and that's absolutely killer so it's all coming the hats look epic and um yeah it's really close once i get.
It all up online i'm going to do a big giveaway to you guys i'm just going to give a shitload of shirts away just to say thank you for all the support hitting 100 thousand subscribers last week and yeah they're coming doggies all right so this is the next spot this.
Spot is absolutely amazing dude look at this beach this is where i want to go i want to get down here so epic man but i don't know if you guys can see but see this little black dot right there i don't know if you can see it but that there is a school of fish man.
I have no idea what sort of fish they are but that is a school of fish and so is there's a black dot here somewhere that's a school of fish so there's two schools of fish down there all we gotta do is get down there yeah pig dude look at it it's really big swell down there also so i've got to walk some somewhere down.
There follow that ridge along and then come down there all right let's get into it because there's two schools of fish there i don't even know what they are they might be mullet they might not eat lures but let's just try this is gonna be sick i hope they eat lures i think they're.
Gonna be mullet but they might not be who knows definitely one big school there and there's a big school there oh check this [ __ ] out man this is what i live for all right so we started up there we're halfway now i've got to take this super sketchy track to the bottom.
But that is a massive school of fish not that dot there but that dot there is a school of fish there's another one here but i'm just worried that they're not going to be fish that eat lures because usually fish that sit like this won't feed on lures but there is a ton of fish there so dude.
Let's get down there i have no idea what sort of fish they are man this track is sketchy boy like a goat right now i'll tell you what you wouldn't want a bloody slip right now that would not be fun it is literally like vertical i'm like seriously climbing down a vertical ledge right now.
With a 50 kilo backpack two fishing rods and another bag full of cooking equipment man these fish better eat lures have you ever heard of the saying sweating bullets time's out by like 500 and that's me right now holy [ __ ] i'm sweating bullets man.
I'm about halfway down and uh still a long way to go it's pretty sick but it's like vertical down there and that's just like i just climbed from up there it's vertical pretty much just climbing down this face of the rock but some legends made stairs all right my doggies do me a favor smash that like button right now.
Just so all of this sweat is worth it no it's definitely worth it but smash that like button as well please hopefully hopefully we can hook up to one of these fish man because they are everywhere all right this is where shit's about to get gnarly dude have you ever seen your legs sweat.
Before look at this man i'm pissing sweat anyway this party is heavy oh man i can't even touch the bottom uh oh good this is a vision so worth it but how good is this i'm nearly at the.
Bottom probably another 10 minutes to go and then you get a sign like this choose life hell yeah brother that's what it's all about this and this hell yeah oh never sweated so much in my life shut up stop whinging let's get down.
There i can see the fish bro look at him oh my god stay there please stay there oh my god as if that walk wasn't sketchy enough his ladder is so wobbly man oh my god that was a mission and it was worth every single step dude.
Look where i am right now what i have this whole entire place to myself there's no one here and there's two massive schools of fish out there holy [ __ ] man life is good right now look at how beautiful it is okay there's actually pretty big shorties i.
Like these are heavy waves look at this wedge oh my god this would be so fun to body surf out here it's actually gonna be really really hard to fish man that's like a four foot wedge and it's super heavy look oh.
I kind of thought that it was going to be hard to fish because there's a lot of swell but that's really big swell this is going to be so interesting all right let's set up the fishing rod fizz levels are 110 all right the time has come to see if these fish eat lures oh my god.
So i'm gonna be throwing ah booted that bit of wood so i'm just gonna be throwing this gt jack 40 gram it's probably the only lure that i've got which i can cast far far far with so let's hope we don't lose it and uh yeah i've got to try to find the schools of fish now because it's really.
Hard at this low level all right where are you oh there's the fish right there i just got away for a lull in the swell they're literally at the back of the breaker go go are we going are we going we're going nice this is psycho fish.
Go as far as you can i think they're mullet knocking about a hook mullet like this [ __ ] flush man that is that is literally right in the center of the school of those fish right in the middle of them all and they're not eating it they must be.
Mullet they've got to be mullet ah i'm casting like dead center man yeah oh that's big no no no no no no no no that's big big big big big no oh my god yeah that's a fish stay there stay there come on that's big.
Come on come on come on what are you shaking its head come on yes oh my god we did it oh no what's going on are you [ __ ] joking it's gone no man what happened.
Oh my god it's gone we lost it no why i got my leader back gone why why why why that's the second fish we've lost today [ __ ] so i'm about 99 sure that the fish that we could see from the top of the cliff.
A massive sea mullet like they're acting exactly like seymour they sit on the surface you can see their heads like that's kind of exactly what the fish out there are doing but when you have their like schools of mullet like that usually you'll have like a gt or a little blue fincher.
Valley barracuda something swimming in with them usually anyway so i'm guessing that's what i've just picked up then something big obviously we lost it so what i'm going to try to do this is my last last metal lure i've got i've just put a treble on the back it's a 40 gram.
Jig but i'm just gonna like cast at the school of mullet and i'll see if i can just like jag one because that's what we used to do in australia for fishing by just jag them so this could be fun probably not gonna work it's pretty hard but let's just try all right let's do this so you're probably asking yourself why.
Doesn't the mullet why don't the mullet just hit the lure because mullet don't eat meat they're like a a vegetarian fish they eat like usually you catch them on bread peas corn they eat seaweed and [ __ ] like that so that's why they're not going to smash the lures that's why we're going to try.
To jag them so let's see if we can get one straight i'm casting like 10 meters over the school and then you bring the i'm just racing it through them and you can feel the lure like knocking them you can feel the the metal lure like going ding ding off the fish but it's.
Just not it's just not hooking them up so funny you can fully feel the lure like knocking the fish as it goes through the school but it's just not hooking them up i suppose that treble's not very big that's all i've got oh [ __ ] i just looked at the time and.
It's 5 25. i'm supposed to be back at the harbour jumping on a boat at 6 30 and it takes me like literally it takes me like an hour i don't know maybe an hour to climb back up there i'm not sure if you guys can see but you're gonna get up this ladder.
And you go along here up there along that ridge along that ridge and then up there and up the top where you can see that little hut that's where you finish that is where i need to get to there is absolutely no way i'm gonna make it up there back to the harbour within an hour like.
That's impossible i don't have any phone reception down here to ring the captain to say leave me here i'll stay at night or whatever so oh man today was so unexpected all i wanted to do was come here do a catch and cook video on the cliff that we went to this morning and it was just going to be like.
A fun day fishing catch cook blah blah but this is why i love nature this is why i love doing this kind of [ __ ] because you just never know what's going to happen man like now i'm on one of the most beautiful beaches i've ever seen in my life trying to hook mullet with a bloody jig and this is living but.
I've got to quickly race up there try to find the phone reception call the captain and i might just tell him don't worry about it and i'll um stay here tonight maybe we'll film again tomorrow i don't know but for now i've got to go doggy so thank you for joining my adventure thank you for watching as always much.
Love and i'll see you in the next one yeah doggies how am i supposed to leave this place dude this is literally one of the most beautiful places i've ever been i can't leave
