I've got an idea hold on that's not good oh is that a crab that there is a monster crab hole man welcome to the field day kitchen boom oh are we back we're back what is going on my doggies welcome back to another.
Video your boy is back on his feet and I'm absolutely froing about it look what I've just w woken up I've actually just woken up in Paradise we got the troopy in this episode we're taking the tiny for a run we haven't used this tin in a bloody long time we're going to blow the cobwebs off this little boat I'm going to run you guys through what's going to.
Happen today but for now you guys know the first thing always coffee on the fire got a beautiful little fire going on down here little Billy full of water look at this absolute Paradise we're going in the boat I'm actually really really excited to blow the cobwebs off this little tiny we.
Haven't used it in a long time I reckon I think I've drove 900 or just about 1,000 km yesterday to get to where we are right now so it's going to be a little bit of fun jumping in the tinny it's been about a year since we put this thing in the water literally blowing the dust off it look at it she Dusty quick little Barista session we're.
Going to hit the road objective of the morning catch the biggest dirtiest mud crab we can possibly find cook him up around a fire this Aro before that sun sets that's basically the objective of this video hopefully maybe we'll even be able to chuck a fish on the fire as well but we got a Breer session Happening Here we got views that'll Soo any Sore.
Eyes I'm going to tr a bit of firewood in the boat low The Troop up we're going to hit the road soon as I have this coffee and enjoy this bloody Serenity that we're in right now look at it all right I'll see he's up in the air we're out of.
you all right I tell you what it is a bloody Good Feeling to be back out in the bush I've been set up at home now for 5 weeks not doing too much I've been really really trying to do what the doctor says and sitting back and not doing a lot if you guys are new to the channel what's.
Going on my name's Phil D make sure you bang that subscribe button cuz we got some dope content coming your way if you guys are new if you guys are OG to the channel thank you so much guys I bloody love you all but um you guys will know that I've had a broken foot had stem cells injected into my right ankle at this point on right here right now we're.
5 weeks into the stem cell treatment I'm not supposed to be in the bush I'm supposed to be sitting at home I'm supposed to be resting up but legit I'm going to go absolute crazy if I stay home any longer like I'm building pagas we're bu we're building things at home I just can't sit down proper ADHD kid but look I'm out here right now doctor's.
Orders he goes to me if you're going to go out filming you've got to go out and be super super careful on your ankle that's why we've got the tin in toe so I'm not going to be doing any heavy lifting on me ankle I'm just going to be driving the boat around the creek resting the ankle up hopefully get some big slobs on the deck but look 5 weeks.
Into the stem cell treatment right now too early to say if it's done anything but it feels pretty good still sort to walk around but it's always it's the stem cells are never going to fix it 100% it was just a little we're just we're just going to give it a crack if that doesn't work we'll have to go do surgery but um that's it doggies 5 weeks.
Into the stem cell treatment doctor's orders take it super super easy don't push yourself do not walk on uneven ground so um this what we're doing we're sitting in the boat all day it's going to be a bloody good day I'm absolutely froing from every every orifice right now to get out there so um we're not too far off the Creek I'm going to drop the.
Boat in and see if we can get some monster crabs ow we're about 5 minutes away from dropping the 10 in the water look at this so sick man it's very very very low tide right now but not complaining cuz what we actually do one is an incoming tide that Tide's going to start pushing in the oceans out there as that tide.
Pushes up a lot of the fish come in here and they start swimming around looking for the smaller Bait fish to chew up on that high tide so dead low tide right now you can see the tide comes right up here it's down here now so going to drop the tin in I'm just sorting myself out here sorting out all the junk that Tide's.
Still draining out right now so we we're in for a good run time is 8:55 in the morning so we got a whole day to play out here it's going to be killer I'm just going to keep setting up these nets going to head down Creek this is what we're using for bait big dirty mullet like that these things are about a year old they've been in the.
Troopy fridge so it's a good time to use them up let's get some crabs on the deck all we're basically ready to rock and roll everything sort of couple of crab nets couple of fishing rods tackle bag couple of lures throw net the world is our oyster doggies first thing we're going to do see if this engine starts this engine hasn't been started in like.
A year come on you're joking how good's that that thing hasn't been started in at least a year that's what I'm talking about all right let's hit it all right first things first when we get home we got to grease that up that's.
Squeaky but look at this man we're on a mission doggies we got I think we got about five or six pots that's plenty I got one here but that's enough man we got enough only only want a couple of crabs look at this Creek beautiful right our first pot is about to be launched into the water so what I want.
To do is we got the wind coming from that direction and it's heading that way which means these floats are going to be heading into the center so you wouldn't want to put your pot on that side cuz that means your your float will get all tangled up in the mangroves are over there you want to Chuck him out here so the.
Um so that float now will head out that way and we can easily drive past and pick them up so we'll suck this side we're only in 1.2 m is the water right now it's pretty bloody shallow in here we're getting it done first pot in the water have a look at this on the sound I'm not too sure if you guys can see.
This well you can see this that that was the water level before and then it comes down so we're sitting in before we're in 1 M that's dropped down to 3 m man look at this that's where we're going to be fishing later I'm going to put a live bait right there ow this is sick fun dude I'm going to put a pot in the entrance of this Creek we'll.
Keep creeping up the end of that Creek just drop the pot there got another one way down there it's living man this squeaky old thing last pot going in this is the Zone we're in the entrance of three different River mouths here so we're just going to drop it in the middle.
Get out that's it bud we're on all pots have been activated this is sick can't really put the pots like hard up against the mangroves cuz the Tide's that low right now like this is just fully blown mud so that's where the crabs will.
Probably be right now they'll be sitting in the middle or sitting in their holes on the edges they'll smell that bait they'll be out there all right this is what's going on right now we got five crab pots situated from here all the way down to the end of the creek there they are probably going to.
Have crabs in them already so they've only been in the water for 10 minutes but that's sometimes all it takes what I'm doing right now is I'm getting out this old school bag which has also been in the bottom of this boat for a year and this boat is BAS this bag is just basically full of stuff which could help you when you're out here so we got like.
Little baby first aid kit just heaps of random we got crab gauges Fish Hook Sun cream bug spray there's a tow in here there's chewies there's rope there's just heaps of random stuff in here but what I'm looking for is that there that stuff there is called Eno and I'm going to stop that engine from squeaking cuz it.
Is giving me the absolute shits every time I go around a sticker a log it's like can't deal with it all right let's fix it hey look at that mate only took a little bit of bloody enox look at this not a.
Squeak that's good thanks for coming and that right there his W pays to have a bag like this on every single boat every everything I own has a bag like this you could basically call it a an Emergency bag where it's got like a lighter it's got everything in it I got one in the Troy I've got one at the big in the big boat at home if we didn't.
Have that in the on us right now I'd be spending the entire day listening to that thing squeak Mac 10's always like you don't need all of this in the boat you'll be you don't need it one time that you get stuck in the bush or the engine doesn't start you really really hope you had that bag on you so there a little bit of a heads up for you.
Keep a little bit of good stuff on the boat little survival pack I'll call it next thing we're going to do we're going to get this 10t cast net we're going to go get ourselves a little bit of live bait because that hole that we found up there before it just looks really really good so I'm going to go for a bit of a walk not really supposed to be walking.
On uneven ground with me foot but but we're not going too far we'll just head up there see if we can't get a fish couple of mullet in the thron net see here we go all right it looks like there's a fair few mullet just up here on that corner so what we're going to do is we're going to get this net ready take.
About quarter of the net in your hand come under your holding arm and then flick that over your shoulder then what you're going to do there's a million ways to try cast net but this is the by far the best way I found to throw a 10t net then with what you got left over you're just going to go half half like that and like this and you're ready to.
Rock and roll I just seen those fish up here this net this net should get a nice spread should just going to slowly sneak up on them now oh they're garish there's guardis there I don't want guardis we want mullet all right here we go ready there's a good amount of mullet.
There oh yeah that was lovely all right we got bait for days beautiful bait look at this so just out of one simple cast with this net we've got some ridiculously good bait look at that thing think there's about probably 10 fish in here which is more than enough.
For now so what I got here excuse my big face it's just a Live Bait Bucket so we're just going to Chuck the live bait in this little hole they're going to stay alive cuz we'll keep that in the water fish will sitting there we laughing that is the perfect perfect bit of bait right there that's going on a hook live Chuck him.
In look at this look at that for a bit of bait right there he's a cracker look at these little ones perfect there's a little lollipops man Mangrove Jack baramundi salmon probably a bloody catfish hopefully not that's good look at that that's it one throw 10 fish you can.
See now this tide this Tide's starting to fill in there's a shitload of activity there's a lot of fish jumping on the surface little mullet getting chased Downstream you can see on the sides here that it's starting to fill up all them little Feeder ceks are starting to fill up this is it we got about 10 beautiful mullet for bait we're going to.
Go check the first pot now we're about 50 m off it now this is sick fun dude sandflies are that crazy out here like I'm getting absolutely peppered by Sanders this is a really good like sun deterrent and fly deterrent but it's so thin sand FS are actually biting me in the back right now it's hectic I'm trying to spray them off but I'm getting.
P it on my back by Sandlers this is too thin I'm going to have to go and uh have to go get something else maybe but I'll just try to push it out sandf flowers are so thick dude look at this they're all over me but we're coming up on the first pot right now slowly creep up on it there she.
Is Big Muddy Big Muddy Big Muddy oh little mud crab he's a baby that's a little female we don't want a female come on darl all right one female next pot coming up come on big juicy crab in this one let's go baby come on give it to me give it to me oh who are.
You hey all right we got a little crab nothing nothing to write home about but we'll let him go that's a little male but he's not big enough come on bud see you later mate all right no good another one that's another little baby so he'd be a little male this one you can see.
Him yeah he's a little Buck he's tiny as well come on big dogs uh that's not good that was close all right where's all the big crabs are come on come on oh we got fish we got three brim and a crab that's a female that's a little female You Can Tell She's a female straight up small.
Claws big shell and then you can obviously see from underneath there female and we're going into the bush no good man this pot up here is our last pot and um every pot's been loaded but we've got nothing size in them which is unfortunate so this is our last one we got all day man but usually it's quite.
Strange I get some big crabs in here when I'm walking around with the crab hook come on Big Dog another one baby proper baby that on see you mate all right this is what is going on out here right now that wind is picked up and it is howling through the center.
Of this mangroves down the front of the river right so I've just chucked an anchor out the front if you guys remember this morning we drove over that ledge and you could see this it went from a meter down to 3 m that big drop on the Sounder that drop is about 3 m at the back of the tiny right now so what we're going to do is we're going to go.
See if we can pull a fish out of it and to get this Live Bait Bucket if I can catch one they're definitely alive that's for sure oh hey we got a jumper hold on that little fell there just launched out of the bucket but this is what we're going to do plain setup Sinker hook I'm just going to pin this little mullet right in the back of.
The shoulder just like that we're going to send him straight out into that big dirty hole it goes from 1 M to 3 m hold on so now it's a waiting game I'm just going to sit here for a couple of minutes.
Probably 20 minutes eh we'll just let that live bait swim around for the next 20 and um see if we get any action then I'll go check the pots come back fish again check the pots come back fish again we just keep doing this all day it's killer I got one Crab Pot tied off the back of the boat so I can check that every now and then as well without.
Having to go check the others but uh so far we're going hungry we really do need something to cook up cuz I got no food so uh fingers crossed eh oh we're on the.
Move had that bait we had a live bait out there for probably 50 minutes and um I honestly nearly fell asleep in the sun I was just kicking back having a hell time just chilling and the rod just went boom and that was it and the live bait got beaten off at the back just missing the hook but it would have been it was a clean cut like Mangrove Jack or.
Something like that anyway what we're doing now floating down river I'm going to pick up that pot this pot that pot we're going to go do a pot check see how we see how we go we need to get a crab in this drop man I know these big crabs in here I've got them before all right come on big crab on the deck coming.
Up come on baby be the one that's not heavy at all there's nothing in there except the Crab Claw hanging off the side that's strange oh look at that they managed to get the bait out of the net you're joking all right crabs are smart around.
Here oh is that a crab that's a crab all right we got a crab in here up this wind is so hectic he might go size too uhoh we got a mud crab on the loose this Net's got nothing in it we got one running around that goes back out there oh no oh don't go in there no oh no that's not good all right this is chaos.
Out here all right here's an update on the crabbing Adventure I've driven the boat into the mangrove into the mud because the wind is just piing us down Creek like we're actually flying down Creek in here down there and then under the wood there's a crab and um I can't see him whatsoever I can only see him when I put.
The GoPro in here like this oh no where is he I actually can't see him oh there he is there look all right there he is in the corner there we go he oh.
Oh bro I can't see a thing right now I don't even know what's going on I got no idea where this crab is I can feel him just come out a that was so close bro oh no he's got me GoPro he's actually biting the camera all right this is what we're going to do this is he's going to think this is my.
Hand and he's going to be really angry go on bite me big dog here here bite me bite me dude this is an absolute Mission yeah all right now we're in in the safe Zone you have no idea how hard that was we got a.
Crab here's a buck what a mission there it is first crab but it's not the first crab of the day but this is the first kind of size size is crab so this is a green mud crab you get green you get brown mud crab out here the way you can tell the difference straight away what you do is you look at this knuckle here so the Crab Claw comes.
Across you got the lollipop there then you get this knuckle that knuckle has several little bumps on it you can see one two and then another one at the top so that's a green mud crab it's got to be 150 and um he's not measuring 150 he is a tiny bit too small oh we're taking drift he's.
Like a couple of meal too small so this crabb's going to have to go back but that's a green mud crab if you ever catch him just remember the double horns on the knuckle there a brown mud crab it'll be smooth anyway he's going back and we're taking a drift all right let's go let's put him back in the water come on we just want one crab man CH out you.
Big Rigg if this was any other normal situation I would have got out of the boat I would have got a crab hook and I would have walked straight into those mangroves there and just look for mud crab holes you guys know that is my favorite thing to do that's why we' we've been never actually caught mud.
Crabs doing what we're doing right now but got to rest the foot got to listen to the old doctor so uh pulling pots is what it is but right now pulling pots is not working for us he we got one pot coming up here about 20 minutes has passed so we're just going to do another drop here and see how we go another Pool here and see how we go surely we're.
Going to get one crab one crab around the fire is all I want how hard can it be come on this is the one oh it's kind of heavy it's kind of heavy it's kind of empty H go all right we got a crab but he's tiny going back.
Empty go go go y little old female no good coming from under the boat there's nothing there I can feel it oh look at that hey darling there's another female I don't know what's going on out.
Here but we don't want these females and they are flat out female I've got an idea what we're doing right now is not working so we're going to um we're going to change the game plan up just a little bit all right this is the plan right now I've just bootlegged it right back to.
The car car's just up here I just lagged it back up I got myself a nice cold drink which is going to be incredible cuz it's I'm sweating my titties off out here right now also what I just grabbed is a crab hook now I know the doctor said do not walk on uneven ground just sit just take it easy and stay in the boat but look.
This is fair dink I've got no food out here for tonight we can make a damper but I've I've got no food except for making damper so this is our options right now we're going to go keep pulling these pots and just getting female crabs which is pissing me off because I don't know I would have CAU about 20 or 30 femal female crabs great sign for the um.
Comeb of the baby crab but not for us to eat food we want to big dirty buck so what I just seen then I went up one of the little finger Creeks I found a big crab hole sitting right on the bank problem is we're fighting the tide you can see this is high tide right now she's going to start draining out this little finger Creek's probably going to.
Be hard to driving it's 7 of a meter of water in it right now and it's on a point and that's on the high tide so we're going to have to start moving and uh look we're going to get a crab on the deck if we don't I'm going to be pretty sad now the boat's stuck on the sand come on let's go there we.
Go all right doggies we're going we're going to get a crab on the deck has to happen we're going now we're playing a g game of race the tide so we've really got to move our asses that Tide's going to start draining out we're going to be in some serious problems so we're playing a game.
Of race the tide now and Dodge the sticks in this little creek I really really hope this crab hole has got a monster crab it's right there it's literally right here like I could probably get it with the crab hook right now but it's a big hole man and the advantages of having the advantages of.
Doing what we're doing right now this side of the creek nobody can access this side so dude could be proper proper meca holes because these crab pots useless that's why we've never done it in an episode before because they're crap all right let's have a look at this hole it's right there check this out.
Crab hook cut that engine off see that hole right there that there is a monster crab hole man we're going to investigate right now anchor in a little tree there boom look at this crab hole bro it's massive holy doly you can see crabs have been walking.
In and out oh my God look at the sandflies dude check out the sandf I don't know if you guys can F this up on camera but sandf is hectic right now crab hole massive you have got to be kidding me it's empty it's actually empty and it only goes down about 500 mil oh my goodness I'm just going to go for a.
Little walk around here very easily taking easy on my foot right holy smokes there's the tiny there's the first hole look at this hole man this one's got water in it that's usually a pretty good sign look at.
That unbelievable both of them holes are bone dryer there's not a crab in sight they're not even deep either they've been abandoned you can tell when the tide comes up and down it just fills them up with mud those holes have got nothing in them I'm doing what I told myself I wouldn't do walking on uneven.
Ground sloppy sloppy mud right now look at this what an idiot I just want to get a crab dude oh oh we got a crab he was hanging on the wrong side but he's another green he's a little male but it's too small anyway there he.
Is there it's nice to see a crab though wait don't you dare go back down there bro hey there he is little Buck there's another green crab you can see from his knuckle there those spikes he's too small unfortunately see a pal look at this we're getting plenty of.
Crabs but they're all babies so we're going to change a g plan I'm bringing all the Nets in come get off see right we're bringing all the Nets in changing game plans you're kidding me ladies and gentlemen that has got to be up there with one of the hardest crabbing.
Missions we've done today all right all the crab pots have been brought in the boat I've brought them up what I'm doing right now is I'm going to change game plan completely we are going to put the boat on the trailer we're going to go to another Creek we're going to see if we can go get a big slob of a fish for dinner because uh this.
Little Creek System right here now is it's just dead mate we've got um we got a heap of crabs but they were just too small so we're going to launch the the boat back on the trailer we're going to full drive out of here to another spot and uh we'll see how we go there but right now we ain't got no dinner on the deck and it's not good time 2:57 in the.
Afternoon it's 4 hours of sunlight left we got 4 hours to get food Hubba Bubba all right we're going to put this boat on the trailer ow I'm not really sure why I'm carrying firewood around because we ain't got nothing to cook time 3:18 we've got to get some.
Kind of food on the table the reason that I'm carrying firewood around is because it is extremely hard to find firewood out here if you see the terrain I mean it's just dead little little spin effects bushes for Miles so it always always good have a little bit of firewood you never know we got a.
Couple hours left for the day you never know what we're going to catch so we're going to load up the trailer going to go to another Creek I don't know anymore just casted out the next fishing rod in the new spot this is the spot we're going to call home stayed here a couple of times it's actually a really really.
Dope spot got the truy popped up that's where we're going to be sleeping got the tiny parked up next to that I like this spot this spot's pretty dope that's like the mouth of the river just out there you this nice Sandy Beach first bait just hit the water just put a little bait out there it's a dead bait so going to get the thrown out see if we.
Can pick up some lives in here put some live bait out who knows a couple hours before that sunsets see how we go eh we're still in the running for dinner if not it's damper ain't nothing wrong with a good old damper though couple of mullet down there you reckon yeah look at that looks pretty good have a.
Sniff oh oh fish on Fish on I can see them we did good I'll eat these for dinner I'm not even joking yeah we got a couple that's beautiful oh these a little bony Herring that's even better bait all right let's go get him in the water that.
Is beautiful fresh bait right there Chuck him in there lock the lid Chuck him in the water we'll tie him up onto this fishing rod holder Bang is what I'm trying to achieve here is a big dirty bed of coals so I'm just going to.
Load him up see if we can achieve that better Co of course we will we're going to be cooking down there look at that sun we got a live bait out there on that Rod fingers cross that thing gets pumped I really hope it does look today we we've we've been in an absolute bloody slog today so what I'm going to do is I got faith in that Rod out there I hope.
We do get a fish but if we don't I'm going to go hungry like I said we ain't got no food so what I'm going to start doing is I'm going to start busting up a beautiful little Bush damper I'm I'm actually really excited for it too so let's start doing a little bit of a damper ow have I got this this is the only bag.
Of food that I've got out here with me we got a little bit of liquid beef stock I got no idea why self-raising flour we got another flour couple of sultanas little tube of Honey some ox cubes this is legit all the food we've got Tabasco sauce more salanas more of this stock stuff I don't know why with this is so old dude all of this stuff in here is so.
Oh there's more must be wanting to make a stew at some point anyway that's all the food we got out here so obviously it's damper or nothing or pancakes but damp is the best so we're going to make damper right on my doggies welcome to the field day kitchen today we're doing something a little bit different we're making.
Damper self raising flour a pot I'm only going to make a little one this time I usually make like dampers and they're that big that I can never finish them so self- raising flour in a pot I got light lightly sparkling soda water going to add that instead of normal drinking water what this does the bubbles make it super fluffy so we'll Chuck in about.
That much I'm just going to start stirring him up right now when you D that are consistency like this it's not too sticky it's not too watery but it's not too dry and it's sort of sticky like that that's ideal especially when you do a circle with it look at that that's.
Good little bit of flour this is the reason why I'm making the damper here and not out there near the fire cuz it's about 50 knots of wind out there look at it it just flies away but that's all you want to do then you want to dust your hand get your big beautiful damper put him over here start working.
It salanas look at the state of this kitchen right now it's going to drop all those sultanas in there then I'm going to start kneading them into the bread they're going to get all mixed through as I do this I've also added salt to this as well.
While I do this I'm watching that Rod Like an Eagle cuz if that rod goes off it means we're eating proper food if not damper it is near we done here it is the finished product of the damper look at that little cutie inside there that is the perfect size damper.
For one person pumping fire nice little better surrounding the bottom of the damper boy that's going to be so good I'm starving I'm so excited about it have a go with that that is our first fish of the day that is a mangrove Jack and I reckon he'd be going very very close to.
Size absolutely incredible fish very good eating crazy set of teeth on them I don't know if you can see them there but they got some serious teeth on them hey smashed a live mullet let's see if this little fell size it'd go close they got to be 300 nose on the nose coming down 300 oh he's he's bloody size oh he's about a m.
Over his size look he's not I'm going to let him go he's not that Bloody big he's just you'd be able to keep him but I'm going to quickly get him back in the water beautiful fish look at that what a gorgeous fish man got a damn for cooking down there it's enough to feed me if we get a good fish I'll keep.
It but this thing's not big enough epic fish but all right buddy see you later mate right on me doggies the damper is done and is done at a very very bloody good time I just watched one of the most.
Banging sunsets over there in the west the sun is slowly melting away in this Camp oven we got a damper this damper was a nearly a disaster look at the color of that look at the bottom of it bro I saved it I just got to it in time this thing would have been roasted the inside of that's going to be incredibly good.
Don't you worry about that we have to give we'll have to cut them in half the inside's going to be amazing ready I haven't seen the inside either but I just know that it's going to be good one two three oh look at it steaming look at that inside we dialed that outside doesn't look so great but the inside boom I am that hungry we're.
Going to dig in right now what I got behind me here there's a little bit of butter in a container this is the first thing I've eaten all day even oh no I had a steak for dinner yesterday here we go check this out look at that steaming falling apart beautiful bits of bread Bush.
Bread Cuts nicely little bit of bread we going to launch on a little bit of butter it's like this huge block of butter and we're just going to eat it oh my goodness yeah doggy I can 100% guarantee you that I'm going to eat all of that.
Probably half that butter all of that and really really really bloody enjoy your around the fire that was a fun day slowly getting back into these videos with the old bung foot but um that was fun that was hard work man we've got some big crabs out of that CR and today just didn't didn't show us any sort of any kind of loving but um that's.
