What's going on doggies welcome back to another video whoa right now we are fighting nature we've got like a 25 to 30 knot wind massive storms are just getting pushed over us um we're fighting this disgusting brown choc milk water and um you know what it's not going to.
Stop us from having a great time because this episode is going to be a banger i'm going to answer all of your questions that you've asked me on instagram i am going to roll on some of the most epic fishing footage that i've done in a long time and we're gonna cook that fish two different ways and it's gonna be.
It's gonna be bloody good so thank you for tuning in and right now we're gonna go find ourselves either find a shelter or build a shelter because 100 this thing is going to dump water on us sooner or later so i'm going to go find a shelter sit down get comfortable and um this.
Episode should be a banger hi this is pretty dope this is actually really dog all right this is where we're going to take base i think this old boat shed that we've got here this is going to be us for the day i reckon if it rains we're gonna stay dry.
And it's um it's actually pretty dope in here fully protected from the wind if i sit down here somewhere oh look at that there's absolutely no windier little bit under there all right this is us this is sick.
This place is actually really really dope and it has just started raining so we have we're lucky that we found this place actually just before the rain hit so that is perfect timing but what the problem is is that the wind is coming underneath here and that's like literally going.
Under where i want to sit on that side and it is going to destroy our fire so um we'll block this off with a bit of wood and then we'll um we'll get stuck into it that is an ah that is a fair chunk of wood right there let's see if that makes a difference.
Ah that is that is absolutely no wind coming in here now all right let's start cooking have a go at this a quick walk down the beach and you can find probably the best chopping board look at this bad boy that is a perfect.
Bit of wood obviously it's been drifting around in the ocean this is going to make the best chopping board we just need to level that up somehow that that is our chopping board for the day that's beautiful all right so we've got a lot of questions to get through today.
We've also got some of the most insane fishing footage to play a little bit later on and like i said we've got this fish to cook up so i'm excited for this one i hope you guys are too first off let's make a little bit of um oh i'm just going to show you this.
Is a piece of the most beautiful fresh fish so this right now we are going to make some sashimi out of this and uh look this is if you don't know what fish this is this is fresh amberjack it is not a sm it doesn't smell like a smelly fish so.
It's a beautiful fish to make sashimi with this was caught yesterday and it is as fresh as fish gets so um look this is a little bit of an entree and then um or a starter or whatever you want to call it and then we've got some amazing an amazing feed to cook up a little bit.
Later on so there's a lot of there's a lot of tricks in that bag behind me there i mean look at this it doesn't come much fresher or beautiful than this oh have a go at that would ya that is what i'm talking about wouldn't be sashimi without a little bit of soy sauce.
So we're gonna dust it with a bit of soy sauce oh my goodness always always putting the plastic back in your bag take it home don't leave it on the bloody beach one more soy sauce for good luck oh look at this would ya this is ridiculous.
So it wouldn't be a sashimi without a couple of what are these seeds called sesame seeds there you go that's the name wouldn't be sashimi with a couple of sesame seeds on there look at this this fish was swimming around yesterday mate it's as fresh as fresh can get look at this that'll do it.
Have a go at that would ya all right here goes the first piece of fish she's looking delicious he's so good man oh my god that is ridiculously good and because we're sitting in a little boat shed right now it's actually pissing down with rain so um i think it just makes it taste that.
Little bit better look at that two pieces in one and we have a second where we're gonna be cooking fish today is um look i don't know what this is i saw it in a shop the other day and they call it like a portable grill or like some sort of a grill thing i've got no idea how it works.
But um we're about to find out right oh so that's obviously your grill plate no idea what that's for ah so here's the charcoal beads oh look at this a little bit of um let's snap it up in the world here doggies fully fully stepping up in the world.
These must be like semi-flammable because it says that you can light them i don't know let's just try this i don't even know if this is gonna work come on look at this it is absolutely pumping now check this out oh that is so hot yes all right this thing is definitely doing.
Its job now we have three pieces of this beautiful fresh sashimi left and um what i'm gonna do i'm gonna cut up a little bit of onion we're gonna cut up the rest of the fish once this thing goes down to like a coals we'll start cooking on this but in the meantime while i'm waiting for this while i'm cutting up the onion.
I'll roll on those clips from the fishing trip we did yesterday it was um it was insane dude like look we caught a marlin for god's sake a marlin on the very first lure that hit the water so that just blew my mind and then it just got better and better as the day went on so um enjoy that footage i'm going to sit here.
While you enjoy that i'm going to enjoy this and um i'll see you guys back here and we'll answer all those questions that you doggies have ew much love oh dad this is hectic well it's definitely not a nice day out here that's for sure it is absolutely kissing the oven rain.
Right now okay oh my gosh because it is everything is definitely an experience.
Yo this has been one of the biggest missions i've done in a long time but the dopest missions we are finally just about on the spot we want to fish wait a minute what is the time even so we started at four o'clock in the morning it's now nine o'clock so we've been out here for a long time fighting some hectic weather.
But um i can finally see land i'll show you that's java right there we came from all over there and the boys are ready let's go doggies big big hookups let's go all right we're so close to the destination we've been driving for i don't even know.
How many hours now we've been driving we've been steaming we've got the whole entire floor oh my god the whole entire floor of this boat is full of fuel we have like 20 litre jerry cans across the bottom of the boat so we've got that much fuel in the and the boys were just saying that if it gets really rough.
On the way home we're gonna have to sleep tonight on the boat we'll take cover in a little bay in java we'll sleep the night there and then in the morning we'll get up hopefully the wind dies off and we can continue this um and we can get home so the next couple of hours or the next.
24 hours is going to be very interesting but very epic this is meant to be a sick fishing spot so um oh man i'm excited i just want to get there and um oh it was a cold morning man freezing cold but now sun's out fishing knots are coming out.
And um some big hookups are on the way all right this is what we're fishing 250 gram jig we're dropping it down and um let's hope we get some tight lines here we go i don't even know how deep it is here but we're going down how.
There you go 120 meters of water holy [ __ ] you're not even gonna believe this my jig didn't even hit the bottom and the cast the captain is just hooked on to a [ __ ] marlin it is fully launching out of the water yeah bruh i can't believe this is literally been here for not even a minute we haven't even been here for a.
Minute and he's hooked up to a marlin on the jig no way man this is insane fighting playing playing it's gonna go there it goes the captain's back is broken my back.
Your back's oh he's going under the prop go go come on hmm oh what a man.
You got him i do oh [ __ ] the line's so frayed look the line's frayed it's like paper at the end oh you're kidding me that was a probably 50 kilo mile and just then we've been here for about no [ __ ] that was the first jig in the water.
And that was around about a 50 kilometer oh my god he just because we're only using pe4 gear it was just slowly rubbing on his nose and eventually twang but we're so close to getting that thing in all right we've only really just started fishing so i think today is going to be very interesting.
Fish on fish on get up here what we come for there we go that's an amberjack and that is gonna be breakfast sashimi fresh so that's actually what we came out here to target today that is a beautiful little amberjack.
Puts up such a fun little fight in 150 days getting better and better yeah now that's a noodle rod spaghetti rod look at it man it's full tweaking yes that's sick like a girl get up here.
Oh how's that for service nah now i'm like a man that's better on my control this one is a little bit bigger there we go so we come out here to get a couple of amberjack and that is a beautiful amberjack.
Yeah boys that's so sick every time for sure boy yeah hooked him perfectly so stoked right now yeah the dog is on get him up get him up hit him up that's what we come for that's beautiful yes job fish top fish ma that's.
Beautiful brah good job thank you look this guy he's killing it yeah doggy yeah doggy rydo welcome back to the kitchen it has been raining the whole time you guys have been gone it is literally we are so lucky that we found this little boat shed because.
It is working like a dream boat right now so i've cut up the onion i've cut up the fish i've put um this epic local seasoning on the fish i've got no idea what it's called but it tastes real good with fish so this is what we'll be cooking up today these bloody things and they're going to.
Taste good man these little fish skewers are going to go onto this random little oven cooking grill thing that i found it is pumping out some serious heat right now i'm actually sweating bullets in this kitchen so look that was a mad fishing trip hey first drop.
Marlon the captain got that on very light line i think he was using 40 pound leader which is extremely light for a fish of that size and unfortunately his back blew out about 40 minutes into the fight then he handed me the rod i was on to it for about 15 minutes and then that line just.
Slowly kept rubbing on its bill on its bill and it um snapped off so would have been so dope to land that fish but um look it's so nice to see it swim away and fight another day so i'm pretty much coming down to the end of these skewers and then we're going to get stuck into these questions but i it wouldn't be a bloody video.
Without a coconut that was an absolute mission to get down but we got it and no i didn't climb the tree yes i used the stick and i did this because that's the only way i know how to get them down but here's our beautiful lunch let's get stuck into this listen to that sizzle.
Oh man this is what it's all about freshest fish on the grill [ __ ] spacing come on brother there we go look at that beautiful get this on there yum that is already smelling ridiculously.
Good so we're just going to open this coconut the cheater's way nothing flash boy it's going to punch a little hole in the side here oh look at him go they know what's actually really funny where we filmed that seven day coconut.
Video i literally stayed i slept just here and i walked about two minutes that way to get this coconut just then and this is probably one of the best coconuts we would have got on that whole video boy this is a really good coconut all right let's get stuck into these questions because there's a lot of.
Questions here so i'm just going to start from the top i haven't really looked at any of these so i'm just going to answer them off the top of my head but there is a lot of questions to get through so let's start at the top when do you plan to come back to australia and would you do a trip around australia.
Yes 110 i want to go back home i am actually missing home like you would not believe it's a it's more about like over here in indo i have the ultimate freedom but it's just the the rubbish the pollution the lack of fish that are here it's sort of like getting to me so much.
Where in australia they have rules where like fishing if the fish are just abundant there i miss it right now i'm actually supposed to be in my car driving around australia that was my plan before corona hit so i'm sort of just sitting here waiting for it all to be over to go back to australia.
And then you're probably asking yourself well why don't you just go back to australia now all right watch this so i'm going to look at the flights from bali to perth and that's where i'm from i'm from perth so i'm going to look at the flights from bali to perth and watch how much they are it's disgusting man.
Flights from perth to bali let's say we'll just do it we'll do it for the 27th um here all right so flying garuda air is the only airline you can fly from bali to perth and this is in rupia 86 million 180 731 rupiah now if you change that into australian dollars.
That works out to be seven thousand nine hundred and sixty four dollars and seventy three cents so it's nearly eight thousand dollars for me to fly from bali to back to the perth right now and um that's a cheap flight me and my girlfriend looked the other night that was fifteen.
Thousand dollars for a one-way flight back to perth so you can stick that right where the sun doesn't shine i'm not paying that much for a flight back home but to answer the question 100 i really want to go home like i said i'm supposed to be driving around australia right now in my car.
And um well it's not happening but yes i really really want to go back to australia i miss the cleansiness cleanliness you know what i'm trying to say i just missed the whole like mud crabbing fishing sleeping in my swag holy [ __ ] i missed my swag like you wouldn't believe so yes i'm definitely going home back to.
Australia but it's just it's just about when the timing's right what is your favorite place to camp doesn't matter where i'm camping i'll camp absolutely anywhere as long as like i love being alone i love being solo i don't like camping where other people are camping like i don't know i don't.
Understand people when they go to caravan parks and there's like a guy right there having a [ __ ] in his tent or whatever and i'm like well i love being free i love the freedom so camping anywhere is like it's just my dream but as long as i'm like by myself or even if i'm with people but it's just like.
In the real nature that's what i love the most i don't like being in crowded places so to answer your question i like camping absolutely anywhere but my ideal places are like proper solo in the bush where there's no one or nothing around me all right so this is a pretty good.
Question that relates to the first question is there anything being done about the overfishing in the waters and the horrific water pollution right now in bali where i am there is nothing like there are i see people doing beach cleanups and stuff but look.
The the pollution here is just it is ridiculous for an example i went out fishing the other day with one of my good friends and the way that they put their bait well fishing over a thousand meters of water right so they want to get their baits down to around 250 meters.
They tie up they get they take out a bag of rocks with them and they'll take out a bag and then another bag of plastic bags they tie the plastic bag around the rock then they put the hook into the top of the plastic bag and they drop it over the boat and they'll let that plastic bag and rot.
Rock sink all the way down to their desired depth and when they're about as deep as they want they'll just do one big yank like that and the hook will pull through the plastic and that plastic bag and rock will continue to go to the bottom of the ocean floor.
And then their bait kind of sits at the level they want it so we were fishing it we were fishing in an area where there was about 15 boats in about the size of a football field all fishing that same method so every single time they drop a bait down each boat drops plastic a plastic bag into the water just to get.
Their bait down so and that's like when i saw that it blew my mind and i've said to myself i'm not going fishing with that guy anymore i don't support it i said to him like what are you doing dude why aren't you using like banana leaf or why don't you use like a you know like something that's natural.
And you just like looked at me like why would you even do that so the problem with the pollution over here is i think that it's more about teaching people it's it's about trying to teach them the ways but it's just the way that they've been brought up and it's it's just so hard like it's really.
Hard oh these are looking so good man all right the next question is have you ever thought of making videos in different countries 110 i would love to travel the world and just make survival videos fishing videos just traveling and just just traveling with a.
Camera and just doing what i do that's something that i would love to do but obviously right now with the covert and all the [ __ ] right now i'm just sort of locked down in indonesia until it's over but once this all blows over if it ever blows over that's definitely something.
That i'm going to be doing i want to travel i don't know i just want to have the that is the ultimate freedom really for me just being able to travel in just every country i want to go do survival videos and snow i want to go do survival videos in the bloody mountains of some country i want to fish.
In i want to go everywhere man why not this is what life's for life's for living so that's definitely i do want to travel every single country 100 percent excuse me alright the next question is do you think you're successful um i think that everybody has a different look at success but i would say at my point where i am.
In life right now i am extremely super 100 110 successful so success for me is not owning a big house it's not owning a dope car it's not about having a million dollars in the bank success for me is doing this right now like if i can just.
If i can happily be doing this and now be getting paid for it via youtube 100 that is all i want in life i don't know i don't want a lot of like materialistic things but if i can live a life like i'm living now yes 100 i say that i am successful what gear do you film your videos with the sound is so crisp and so clear.
Um i literally only film on gopros that's it if you from episode 1 to about 37 i was using a gopro 7 and a gopro a and then i dropped the gopro 7 and i picked up a gopro 9. so now i'm filming on a gopro 8 and a gopro 9. so i'm filming on the gopro 9 right now and.
I don't use any external microphones i literally just have a gopro on a stick and that is it like i think that i don't do anything with the settings it's just obviously like if the wind's coming this way you face the camera away from the wind and there's like a few little things that you need to do.
Because i don't use external microphones but i don't use any kind of flash camera gear because if i had a big camera and like these big vlogging cameras that's just a pain in the ass man why would you want that when you can have a sick little gopro so that's all i use is just two gopros and i.
Edit all of my videos on premiere pro what is your main occupation apart from youtube so right now youtube is my full-time job um we've just hit over 400 000 subscribers on youtube which is like it blows my mind every single day that i've done that in just over a year so thank you to every single person who.
Subscribed liked all the [ __ ] that comes with it thank you so much because it actually means a lot and it's i'm starting to live the life that i've dreamt of for my whole life so this is what i do for work now this is my full-time job and believe it or not this is paying better than a job in that.
Than it was when i was a plumber in the mines and that just blows my mind every single day as well but yes this is my full-time job i don't do anything else except for this youtube now too much talking next question can you say hi to me my name is spencer and i'm also a first-class boy scout.
What's going on spencer you're legend oh what are the big plans for 2021 all right so i have a lot of plans for 2021 like ever since i started youtube and i could and i found out that it's possible for me who is just like an average joe i'm not smart i'm not intelligent for me to make a youtube channel up to.
400 000 subscribers in this short amount of time it like clicks something in my brain that anything is possible so um look i'm i'm striving for everything i can in this world while i'm alive like i've got some big things coming up in 2021 which hopefully i will show you guys very very soon like.
Hopefully within a week or two very soon um the clothing the online store that's so many people asking about that that is this close it's like this close to being ready to go so that has been an absolute struggle for me because the clothes are all coming from.
Australia and i'm stuck in indonesia so trying to work out this like back and forth with materials and stuff has just been an absolute headache but look i'm wearing one of these shirts now the hats are just absolutely joy the clothes and material the way they fit is so good i gave it to a couple of mates in perth.
And they said look it's just dope so very very very very soon it's going to drop and i'm very very excited about it but yes 2021 big plans and hopefully fingers crossed like me and my girlfriend we can go back to australia jump in my car and do that trip that i've been.
Wanting to do forever all right where's another question there's just like 500 questions when are you coming back to australia when are you coming back to australia as soon as i can come back to australia i will be there and um look i cannot wait it's been my dream for probably the last.
Six years to do a lap around australia so i'm coming back um where did you meet maki and does she go on adventures with you often alright so if you guys don't know who monkey is maki is my beautiful girlfriend uh i met her in bali four years ago so my girlfriend monkey she's from czech.
Republic so she's from europe and um we met in bali four years ago and pretty much as soon as i met her at the pub i was like man this chick is a is a lord and we went on a trip three days later to the islands off of bali and she is just a full-on travel nut so she loves travel she loves.
Adventure just as much as i do so it's pretty good to have a chick who lets you do or like does travels like you but also she lets me do whatever i want to do like i literally fish five times four times a week and she's just like see ya see ya bye have fun it's like.
It's so good and um no she's she's a weapon of a chick and hopefully i can get her back into australia because it's actually really hard for me to get because she's from czech republic it's hard for me to get her back to australia as well so we're going through all the paperwork.
Now trying to get her back in so we can do this trip around oz please let us back in who do you go for in the afl um nobody i don't follow any sports i literally don't even i haven't owned a tv for probably about 10 years like i don't watch tv believe it or not i don't even really watch youtube.
Um i don't ever really see i have this like sort of personality where i'm just like bang bang go go go go i don't even when i cook dinner at home my chicks like dude sit down and eat your food and like i'll be cooking it in the kitchen and i'll just eat it straight away because i'm just like i just always got.
To be doing things so that kind of went off track no i don't follow any football but i suppose the reason i don't is because i don't watch tv i don't really watch anything really i don't really have any interest in sitting down and watching a screen when i can be out doing this kind of stuff.
Or i don't know doesn't really interest me at all uh where's the next one have you ever been close to starving when shooting a vid hell yeah man pretty much every time i go land based fishing in bali or any time you see me eating snails that.
Is when i'm really hungry because obviously we're not catching fish so um look i don't think you'd ever starve there's always something to eat anywhere you are in the world there's always going to be some kind of a food source you just need to know the area and what food's edible but no not really i actually really do enjoy.
Eating those snails and um there's a couple of videos that i want to start doing eating different kinds of like fully whack-ass bush tucker like it's really weird food but um it's edible and yeah i don't really ever starve i've never starved but i have been super hungry.
That's why you eat snails whoa have a look at this they're coming along so good it's actually like slow cooked slow cooking them oh this one's a little bit that one's seen better days but it's still going to taste alright that's hot there all right next one is do your tattoos.
Have meaning and do you have any more coming um yes my pretty much every single tattoo i have in my body it means something to me so when i was when i was like the age of 21 22 i lived in a house in scarborough in perth it was called the pig pen it was just a.
House where i lived i don't know five people five of my best mates lived in that house but at any day there was between 10 to 15 people every day at the house drinking partying just having a hell time being young and dumb and um i bought a tattoo gun online on ebay and.
As soon as that tattoo gun entered that premises holy moly there was some dumb drunken tattoos getting done so a lot of my tattoos have been under the influence of a whole lot of beers but the memories that come with them are just insane so like a lot of my a lot of the boys back home.
Or the mates or my mates have pretty much from here up on their legs is just the most obscene ridiculous tattoos and um look like my best mate bobo did that my best mate jake did that i got mates when i was in the mines i took my tattoo gun to the mines we did tattoos up there so.
Now that i look back like some of them are pretty stupid this one's from when i did like a trip with my best mate brad we drove around half of australia and we've got this like everything has a meaning yes everything has a meaning this is my best mate's girlfriend did this one so everything has a meaning and um do i.
Want to get more tattoos right now not really i sort of went through a phase but i kind of would like to get like a chest tattoo maybe i don't know we'll see how it goes oh well that one's well done there's like one section on this grill which is extremely hot.
And they're looking pretty they're actually nearly done pretty close all right next question do any adventures turn out bad and do you not post them um i have to this point right now i have posted every single video that i've been out to film and i've come close not to posting.
Videos because there was a section between episode 10 and probably episode 20 somewhere around there where we were fishing in bali land based fishing and i think it was like five episodes in a row where we didn't get a fish and i was like this is just getting ridiculous people in the comments were.
Just scoldering me like dude these guys the [ __ ] is fisherman what a loser i was like shut up but um no i post everything because for me it's more about the adventure than about catching fish so those times that i went out and i didn't catch fish i was like.
You know i'm just gonna post these videos because personally for me it's more about the adventure so no every time i every time i've been out to film a video i've uploaded it to youtube have a go at these these are going to be ridiculously good those ones are done that one's done.
These two are still a little bit more all right the next question is is there a chance that you'll visit the philippines i've actually been to the philippines twice but that was before i was doing youtube and 100 i would love to go back there the philippines is the most amazing.
Beautiful i'd love to go back there with my dive gear because it is some of the best free diving that i ever did was in the philippines it is so beautiful man next question do you ever run into any kind of trouble romping around these sick islands um not really like the people the.
Indonesian people are so beautiful man they are actually really honestly the most beautiful people in the world probably the only time we've ever had a problem was with my girlfriend we were in i don't even know what island that was we were in an island and we did a trip across the island for the day and it was like.
We left that site at sunset we were coming back through the center of the island and we got a flat tire on the bike it would have been about 10 o'clock at night and we had a flat tyre and there was like a little a little hut like this with a pool table underneath it and.
These local guys were drinking iraq which is like a local alcohol and when we pulled over and i was like oh boys can you guys help us with this flat tire they were extremely maggot like they were proper drunk and because my girlfriend they're there they were just acting super sketchy around my.
Girlfriend like i was like you always stand on that side of the bike i was trying to like and they were like you're coming just being very very weird so we ended up just driving off with a flat tire and like got out of there that's the only time i really had a problem where i thought like.
All right this is going to go south but apart from that it is never i've never ever run into a problem apart from that one it's been beautiful oh this is so good do you ever get an upset stomach or a blast out of your rear from consuming anything i think i've got a stomach of steel like.
I can literally just about eat anything and i do not i never get sick i've never been sick like i've never really been properly sick over here all the years i've lived here and i eat some weird [ __ ] man and i don't ever really get sick so no i've never had a blast from my rear from eating weird foods.
All right this is like the fourth time this question's come up so tell us more about your girlfriend i think i've told you already she's from czech republic we've been together for four years she likes traveling just as much as i do so my girlfriend works as a photographer so i do my youtube stuff before i did.
Youtube we were actually traveling we were literally traveling the world we did all of europe we did the philippines we did a shitload of indonesia we did a lot of trips in australia and she is an amazing photographer she makes money by doing photos so.
Before i started this youtube game and it actually like this opened my eyes up to that it's possible to make money on youtube because she makes money selling her photos selling prints and um she got me into photography which kind of led to this whole entire youtube game but.
My girlfriend is making a good living from instagram she sells a lot of prints works with companies on instagram and that's what we did for maybe a year or two we traveled and that was our job that was my job taking photos with her so we've got a travel instagram account.
Which is um i'll leave it here or here or here or something and i'll leave it in the description if you guys want to check it out that's like a completely different thing from what you see on my instagram it's more like professional photos and like beautiful it is actually like i look at the photos.
That we take and i'm like what the hell that's amazing but yeah that's what she does for work and um she's an absolute lord of a woman would you ever shoot a catch and cook video with a fan hell yeah if i ever see anybody like somebody who knows me from youtube or whatever and they're like oh dude let's.
Go on adventure i'm 100 down with that man let's go i would love to do something like that it'd be sick look at this are you joking so this is amberjack onion and the most amazing spice i'm not even sure what it is but it's going to taste bloody i am.
It's so good man i wish i could like stick this in so you guys can taste it right now holy [ __ ] that's what it's all about all right let's change this camera angle up a little bit and um get into this question now this is by far the most asked question.
Why did you start filming youtube what made you start youtube and how did you grow your quit your channel so bloody quick um good question so i started youtube purely because i saw other people doing youtube and i knew that they were making some ridiculous kind of coin.
Doing things that they love and i was like i remember standing in the trenches at work like just looking out and i'm like this is not where i want to be right now like i want to be out fishing diving eating snails doing some [ __ ] that i love doing every single day and if you can make money doing that well.
You've made it in life so i knew that i wanted to start youtube a year before i started my youtube channel wait a minute does that even make yeah i wanted to start youtube a year before i even started but you know what i mean so i gave myself one year to save up as much money as i could.
To study youtube how does youtube work how does algorithm work how do you get views on youtube like believe it or not i used to sit up to two or three in the morning in my little donga in the mines and research how to make money on youtube how to get big on youtube so i was a full bottle the day that i dropped that first ever video and i.
Think that's what a lot of people don't do so there's a lot of questions also how do i start a youtube channel i would recommend research the [ __ ] out of youtube like not just youtube if you want to do anything in life like research how it works you're a full bottle so once you.
Started it you can go in that first video within a month of being online my very first video got over a million views so it just shows that taking the time taking the effort and paid off big time for me i worked for a year i saved as much money as i could i worked for eight months i think.
I saved up as much money as i could so when i came over into indonesia i had nothing to stop me i could just put 100 concentration into this youtube game because i knew that's what i wanted to do as a job and that's how i want to live the rest of my life just creating.
Content making the best videos i can obviously for you guys but also getting paid for what i do so that is what i did and it is completely 100 paying off now like those late mornings where i stayed up till 2am my eyes falling out of my head reading articles about how to be big on youtube uh absolutely paying off right now like.
I said this is my full-time job and if i can help anybody do it like i would love to help you guys do it also but i would i would definitely say don't just start when you've got 20 20 in the bank because you're gonna have to go to work and consistency is key if you can pump out a video every week or.
Even better two videos a week that's going to make you drive so much faster so there's also a lot of people in the comments there asking how do they start their youtube channel i would not start until you're a full bottle you've got the savings behind you where you can just go head in first and just.
Smash out as much content as possible and hopefully you succeed because look i'm living my dream right now and it's um all thank you to you guys but also there was a lot of hard work that went in it behind the scenes and still every single day it is a grind but i'm very happy where i am right now in life.
So many questions again asking this what knives do you use okay look where where is this bad boy so these are the two knives that you will see in most of my videos this one and this one so look this knife is not a good knife i wouldn't recommend.
You getting a knife like this if you can see it it's not it's not straight anymore it's like bent to this funky angle because i was trying to like chop wood with it the other day and it's just i don't know it's more of like a kitchen knife than an outside camping knife but.
If you want to know what it's called it's called a i don't i can't read that can you read that i can't read that anyway it's not a great knife so i wouldn't say get it i'm hopefully getting my best mate in australia is making me a knife hopefully that comes in we'll see and then um.
This thing is a knife i bought over in indonesia it cost 50 what 15 to buy this thing and i thought it was gonna be a piece of [ __ ] it's actually a very good knife but it doesn't have any it doesn't have anything except for a stamp of an eagle and it says.
Stainless steel china so i don't know doesn't have a brand i don't know what it is it's been a very good knife it costs 15 man and it's not rusting it's always got a sharp edge on it well most of the time and um it's been actually a very very good knife but it's.
That they're definitely two knives that are not good quality and i wouldn't recommend going to spend money on this thing there are so many better knives on the market and when i get back to australia obviously i've got all of my good stuff there so i wouldn't recommend getting this it's.
More of a kitchen knife than a camping knife all right next one is are you single well that depends how much money you got darling no no i'm not single i have a beautiful girlfriend what did you do for a career before youtube blah blah.
Yeah you know that already i was a plumber slash photographer how do you sleep covered in sand i think i'm just completely used to it so there's another couple of questions in here asking how do you sleep in that tent with no blankets indonesia if you have never been here is.
Humid hot country so and you know what i can literally sleep just about anywhere and when i do these missions i do like massive walks like i walk for two to three to four hours up the coast sometimes and at the end of the day i am just absolutely knackered so when i sleep in the tent i'm just like.
Oh see a bud so um with that new mattress with having the new tent and the pillow especially the pillow i am i can literally just about sleep anywhere with anything on me i don't really care so that's the answer to that i can pretty much just sleep anywhere.
At all um next one if you can change anything in indonesia what would it be 100 the rubbish pop the rubbish problem here it is just it is obviously you guys watch my videos it is disgusting um you should come to new zealand brother if i could come to new zealand right now.
I'd get on a plane and i would be there because new zealand looks so dope i would love to get in a car and drive around new zealand that would be so dope how often do you fish for fun every single time i go out and film a video i fish for fun.
When i film these videos i try not to pressure myself too much into like i if if i'm not having fun i'll stop filming because it's that is at the end of the day my whole entire goal is to have fun doing what i'm doing so i try to keep myself having as much fun as possible.
And a lot of people like say like how could it be fun changing the camera angles and like putting the camera there walking off coming back to get the camera i honestly honestly generally love filming these videos like it is just as much fun as catching a fish or eating the fish or doing.
Anything like i love the filming and i also absolutely froth getting home cracking a cold beer and then getting stuck into editing a video for six to ten hours or whatever it takes me to edit a video i absolutely love it so the whole entire process from waking up in the morning to going fishing to going walking along the.
Beach filming editing i love the whole entire package it's just so much fun how do you stay so positive and happy all the time um i've always been like a super positive person and if i'm ever down i really really tried my hardest to like tweak my head into a positive state but.
Man we're all human i don't i'm not always happy but i'm happy pretty much 99 of the time and it's purely because i'm doing now what i love to do like obviously i wasn't this happy when i was stuck in the mines for one month in a tiny little room that wasn't my happiest but now.
I'm literally happy 99 of the time because i am doing what i love every single day so just i don't know i'm very very grateful for where i am in life right now what is your favorite seafood ah that's a that's a hard question favorite seafood all right seafood as in like things that.
Swim in the ocean number one would be squid and then fish would come very close to that number two but i love fish i love squid when it's cooked properly um then fish but the number one on top of the chart by far is mud crab or blue swimmer crab.
Blue man of crab mud crab there up there with my favorite kind of seafood which is something that i really miss about being back in australia and i am like pulling my hair out that i can't go back and do it is going mud crabbing walking through the mangroves sticking my hand down them big holes.
Pulling out them juicy mud crabs oh man i can't wait until i'm back and i was doing that kind of stuff there are so many questions to go through i don't know how long this video is going to go for but i'll just try to answer as many as i can where did you grow up and where did you.
Find your love for the outdoors um so when i was like from the age of year two to the age of about 17 or 18 i lived on a little farm it was like seven acres of of land and my dad had camels and i suppose this is where yes that's right he has camels like the big the big.
Gangly animal with a big hump on the back so we had like i don't know we had like 10 camels on our property we had goats we had donkeys we had we had so many we had horses we had ducks we had chickens so it was like a full little farm and um that's where.
I suppose that's where like the start of the whole entire loving the outdoors was like my mum is an absolute lord of a woman and she's like if you're watching tv she was like go outside and do something get on your bike and go and cut yourself and you know she's.
Like that kind of mum who's like go outside and have fun get off the tv so i probably owe it to my mum that i am like i am right now because she would let me literally just go outside i'd be like eating tadpoles when i was a kid there's photos of me like with tadpoles like trying to eat them and.
I don't know i suppose that's where i grew up and i love the outdoors like my brother and my sister we used to drag each other through like the muddy paddocks of our property in winter had like a ride on lawn mower with a garden hose and a surfboard at the back and like tow each other around through the mud.
Like i don't know i suppose that's where i really really started at a young age is loving the um outdoors i suppose and my dad's just like a fully blown travel nut he used to get on his camels and just go into the bush he used to have a rifle on the side like a gun on the side of his camel's.
Water food and he just used to disappear into the bush for days weeks and just travel so i suppose that's where i get my love for the outdoors that's what i reckon anyway oh how long have we been sitting here for quite a while uh what is the next one of these where.
Did you learn your survival skills any books to recommend this is a question that got a lot asked a lot as well and um i don't ever read books i've never read a book in my whole entire life it's pretty bad i but i've never read a book in my entire life i literally think you just pick up these skills from.
Just being outside and i don't know just literally being outside and just doing things like you don't have you don't learn it from watching i suppose you do learn it from reading a book or watching it a video but even if you read something in a book and went outside and did it it's not going.
To work you've got to like practice that thing so something that i do a lot in indonesia is i just talk to people the locals that's the main way you learn stuff like you see them eating seaweed or collecting seaweed i'm like what's that for is that from a khan can you eat it and you see some guy catching some sort.
Of fish in a d in a weird way i'm like what how does this work you know you ask people you learn so that's the best way to learn i suppose i've never really done any courses on survival i just um i suppose it's just knowledge and being outside and just just doing it.
All right this is a pretty good question that i just looked at someone's asking what's your advice to someone sitting in home in quarantine right now um look if i was stuck in quarantine right now this very second and i still didn't know what i wanted to do in life even if if i had the time and opportunity to be stuck inside.
With nothing to do i would use that time to my advantage and i would be researching just use that time to so when this coronavirus is over you can go outside and you can be the best at what you want to do like i would use this time to research whatever it is that you want to be you want to be a chef you want to be a.
Hairdresser you want to be a youtuber you want to be whatever you want to be an investor you want to do whatever you want to do use this time use this time to your benefits so once this coroner's over you're like a full bottle you've got the brain you've got the mindset to go chase your dreams don't just.
Sit at home play video games watch tv and waste this time because it's actually a valuable time i think anyway like me personally i'm trying to start this clothing brand i'm trying to keep a video coming out each week and i'm doing two other little businesses on the side which i'm trying.
To start up and to be honest i would love to be stuck in a room for one month with no distractions just so i can punch out all the things i have on this list and then i can continue doing this youtube stuff but that's what i would say anyway i would use this time to your use this time to your advantage.
Don't just waste it playing video games watching tv sleeping in be productive get [ __ ] done live the life you want to live because life is beautiful once you live the life you want all right that kind of oh my god my knees are stiff i'm getting old boys that kind of sums.
Up pretty much all the questions there's a couple more but um this is probably really dragging on so i think i got to the most important ones and the last question is what do you like most about youtube um look getting paid to do what i love number one obviously the comment reading the.
Comments from you guys whether it be on instagram or the youtube in the comment section literally it touches me like you would never believe i remember watching youtubers and they're like thank you guys so much for the support and i was always like shut up idiot but now i know what they.
Mean by thank you so much for the support it literally it touches me like you wouldn't believe so thank you guys for the support thanks for all the comments thanks for all the questions should i say and um look i'll see you in the next video and um 2021 let's make this one a banger.
Much love and i'll see in the next video
