Understatement let's go we've got to put a massive bend in the noodle rod my this is what it is all about right now you just never know what's at the end of one of these tracks it's so incredible like these tracks they split off.

Survival situation there you go anyway like i was saying these tracks they just split off absolutely everywhere around this area and um this is one of the most enjoyable things to do is just drive we're going to get the noodle rod out once we arrive in location and we are.
Going to go try to get some big fish on the noodle rod and um while i'm talking about the noodle rod two days ago we did a big mission we did a big walk i think it was about a four and a half to five hour walk to get to the location we were at and i broke absolute records on the noodle rod.
Unbelievable day it still blows my mind today this rod is a one to four pound setup super super light gear and i'm gonna roll the clips on now i'm gonna show you guys the fish that we caught and um mind blowing i'm gonna roll those clips on now if we get stuck or in a little bit of boggy sand i'll um.
Click back to this 4b mission but right now the droopy is just chewing this sand up so roll on the noodle rod bending sessions oh we are on oh my god we're onto a really really really bloody good fish on the noodle rod right now we have been walking for a long time to.
Get to where we are and we have um hooked onto a big fish big fish ah listen to it yeah look at that it is screaming right now have a look at the size of this tailor that we've just got on the noodle rod this is a big fish this is a really this is my best tailor on the neuter rod for sure.

This place is absolutely unreal we have like this epic dead tree structures on one side oh my god hold the camera hold the camera watch this watch this watch this watch this oh he's gonna eat it at the beach is he gonna eat at the beach come on come on.
Come on wow this is the best day of my life come on come on hit it get it get it come on come on there we go wait they're still there still there punching out the back come on come on oh there we go that's a big hookup oh my goodness you're kidding.

Look at that man are you kidding me smash that lure that is what dreams are made of right there oh my goodness all right i'm gonna get this lure out excuse me i'll get this lure out and we'll get him straight back in the water that one's a little bit smaller a little.
Bit smaller but not by too much that is another incredibly beautiful fish this one's gone straight back in the drink to fight another day i'm speechless that is a monster of a tailor on the lightest fishing gear all right mate you're having.
You have an amazing day you just made mine all right see you mate see you next time that was a pleasure wow huh are you kidding me those taylor came right up to our feet chasing this tiny little lure in that was off its head.
Man so what i was saying before we saw those fish is how absolutely beautiful the landscape is here it's like these epic sand dunes of beautiful water shelly beaches so what we're going to do is probably whack the drone up in the air have a look from above because i reckon it's going to look absolutely.
Incredible wow so righto.
We are nearly on location but not yet we've still got a bit of a walk up the coast what we're going to do now set up a backpack chuck a bottle of water and chuck all the fishing gear we need in it for the day and we are going to punch that way we've got a bit of a walk going to climb down a massive cliff.
You guys will see what's going to go on during the day but first off we're going to set up all this fishing gear and then um boy how bloody good was that fishing session on the noodle rod that tailor was literally this is my leg it was up to there man that's a big fish on the noodle rod.
Absolutely mind-blowing little rod let's see what we can get get done with it today i'm going to be using the noodle rod i'm going to be using one other rod so we're going to set up our gear and it's exciting times poor car needs a serious wash but have a look at the back of this troopy.
Would ya she's an absolute pigsty there's just stuff everywhere in here we got fishing bags fishing rod holders fishing rod holders it's a mess anyway let's go i'm going to fill this bag full of all the equipment we need today and we are going to be off.
So pretty much what the goal is with the troopy because i keep getting asked a couple of questions i am waiting for a draw system to be built and delivered there's a lot of things that need to be done to the car but for now this is how we live it um it's kind of messy right now.
Because that was an hour and a half of absolute bumpy tracks but that's a box full of fishing reels more fishing gear it's just fishing gear absolutely bloody everywhere and you know what i absolutely love it well that did not take long before i got one of these stuck in my bloody foot.
Oh well no it's still in my foot hold up hold up ah see these things they're bloody everywhere and knowing and just because i am how i am i'm wearing bloody thongs again seen a little snake on the track this morning so i.
Better keep my eyes out but we are here we've made it we've got a little bit of walk through the bush here and we are going to arrive on the destination looks like it's quite a big cliff so i might have to do a little bit of billy goat scrambling down a cliff to get to the water but once we get to.
The water you want to see the color of this water incredible have a look at this we've actually made it to where i wanted to make it now we've just got to find a way down this cliff but have a look at it it is absolutely hey unreal.
What we're gonna do we're gonna find a way down this cliff here once we get down there this water looks incredibly good that is noodle rod city baby big flathead big sand biting possibly i do not know what's around the corner but we're about to find out look at this my god.
do how good man literally put the drone up for one second and you come across massive seed or we.
Call them i call them sea cows but they're actually dugongs so there's like a mum ju gong and a little baby just floating around having the time of their lives down here right now as i speak there's a baby shark but you probably won't be able to see it on the camera maybe.
I don't know if you guys can see it but just there there's a little baby shark swimming that little black patch there is the two sea cows bloody beautiful mate i'm gonna keep walking around this cliff to that sandy bit that we saw on the drone i reckon that's the go.
Then walk all the way back down on the bottom flicking this little soft plastic along here oh stop it made it let's go straight down here it's the easiest walking i've done all day oh boy.
Yes there we go mission complete let's get up on this rock this is going to be our casting platform we come on come on hit it hit it it's just there hit it hit hit yeah oh that's a fish no don't go under the rock.
What the hell is this it's only baby but i've just walked up around the corner haven't had too much luck we've been here for a little while first fish of the day coming in on the noodle rod what do we got what is that there we go first fish of the day that's a little taylor.
Smash that lure it's actually not that small it's probably meh it would just go sides probably these have to be 300 millimeters 30 centimeters long he's a beautiful little fish he's obviously gonna go back it's the first fish of the day on the noodle rod smash that lure like you should of.
Beautiful little one let's get him back in the water we're definitely chasing bigger fish than this but it's a nice start see ya buddy i just casted that next to something oh there it is i seen that thing splash on the surface cast it at it and we have it oh yeah here we go that's a nice little.
Run this is might be a bit bigger fish come on come on come on what is this all right they're getting bigger that one's a little bit bigger than the last one this one's easily sized easily a size fish but we'll let him go so that was the second cast one cast.
Second cast bang after we got that last one this is taylor heaven out here but we don't want oh yeah we'd want these this is good fun on the neuter rod but what a bit of variety you know we started this video with a couple of donkeys.
Now um we're still catching taylor so hopefully we get a couple of different fish during the day but that's a lovely one rider you go back buddy love ya thank you i'll see your parents in a couple of days yeah like a bullet look at him go oh smashed it second cast in the new.
Rock this place is incredible it's a noodle doodle heaven oh no go around that rock don't you dare go on there oh no no no no no stay high stay high ah it's got barnacles yes we got it another taylor who this place is packed with taylor.
There's another beautiful one probably about 350 mil long lovely little fish see you baby off he goes oh this is getting out of control oh yes it's a different breed it's a different fish yes it's only a little pup but that is a beautiful juvenile.
Golden trevally epic little fish really hard fighting even a fish of this size puts up a hell of a fight on the little one to four set up but that is a lovely little fish you can see on this side here he's got a little bit of a wound he's been fighting or he's been bitten by a.
Shark or something's happened to him there but oh sharp sorry sorry sorry sorry sorry oh there he is a little bit of a different species for once this is like the little this must be like the kindergarten for all the fish out here but we'll get him back in the water it's a.
Beautiful little specimen this one see you mate have a good day love ya this is incredible how many fish are out there right now standing on top of that cliff you would never imagine that there's that many little fish out here and um wait a minute my bloody lure is stuck on a rock isn't it.
Oh and just to make it even better anybody plugger just broke but you know what couldn't happen in a better part of the world we've got the lure back we'll fix the plugger up but um yeah this is just like full-on baby baby fish country right now when i looked at this place on the map.
Yesterday i was like this place could be holding some big fish but now that i'm here pretty shallow pretty rocky maybe there'd be the odd one cruising around but i don't know i'm just going to have to um get this storm through oh there we go and um don't know maybe i'll put a soft plastic on see if we can pick up a big.
Dirty flathead who knows you're joking oh no why we just actually lost a flathead third or fourth cast that was a flathead i love it when a bloody plan comes together i seen him following it in he followed it in the whole way down here and he.
Just took it down there unfortunately we didn't hook it correctly so that wasn't no it's not a bad little flutty come on let's get another one that same fish that i just caught is actually going for the plastic again how stupid can it be.
Let's see if it actually eats it oh he actually ate it you've got to be kidding me this is the fish i just lost and he actually ate the plastic again that is incredible all right let's get this fish up onto the beach because it is a beautiful fish oh as if that even happens man.
All right this is the part where i've got to be careful i'm going to slice my foot open no it just got off again all right let's see if we can catch it again crazy crazy times man we just caught a flat head lost a flat head and then i seen it i casted at it.
And we caught the same flathead and then i lost it again because i was he's farting around on that slippery rock i didn't want to slice my foot open so we've lost him but there are flathead here so we're going to get one and that's what i want to eat flat-headed beautiful eating.
That's what we're going for now that is the targeted species this place is off its absolute head it is so bloody beautiful right now it's not too much wind that winds buggered off i am just getting little fish like this big.
Flat out definitely isn't what i expected when i looked on the map but i suppose that's the joys of traveling around and looking around you're never gonna always get the big dogs are you right now i'm absolutely dying for a drink of water and then i don't know what we're gonna.
Do it's just a small fish party out here there's like a thousand garfish in front of me here like i'm literally talking like a thousand of them you see them all flickering on the surface what do we do we go back and get a tailor for lunch i'm absolutely starving.
Oh it ain't no coconut but it's close enough wait all right i suppose the plan is just to keep on punching that way we're just gonna keep walking until we get something that i can have for lunch but have a look at this behind me how epic is that.
So good man all right down there there's a hundred thousand garfish we can eat them don't want to up there hundreds and thousands of taylor easily there's like fifty percent of the fifty percent that i caught were oversized so we're gonna eat them but what we'll do.
Is we'll just keep punching that way around that corner we have not seen what's up there yet so i've got no idea we'll just keep walking that way maybe we'll get that big dog we need for dinner lunch maybe not you gotta be in it to win it.
Something here swimming in the water i have got absolutely no idea what it is but it's pretty big and um i don't know let's see how we go here what is that oh my god we've got it we've got it we're just hooked up oh this is a big fish man this is a big fish.
Oh no this is a big fish what is this i see like a big black big black shadow in the water oh no this is my favorite lure oh look at it look at it listen it's big this is a really big fish what i don't have no idea that's not fighting normal oh the noodle rod.
So how's your day going my day's been pretty good a couple of small fish you know like i'm gonna be here for months listen to this i'm just sitting here so relaxed probably about 20 minutes into the fight i cannot bring this fish in seriously look at this the noodle rod is just.
Giving it giving all she's got right now it can't be it can't be like it can't be a gt or anything because it's just not swimming like that i don't know what this is no idea how long is this gonna take all right here he comes i don't know what's going on right now but i can see i can see something big and black it's.
Coming in now i've literally been sitting here for like 30 minutes 35 minutes trying to get this fish in oh it's still it's still pretty far out but i can see i can see black what is that man are you kidding no it's not what is that.
No oh you little mother eater all right that was exciting to say the least how's the lure still got my got my lure back see i upgraded those hooks it works when you upgrade those hooks from the cheap ones.
How is that that's incredible all right so what we actually had on we just had a shark and i have no idea how or how that happened but i hooked the shark and um obviously it hooked it in its mouth because the lure has been absolutely destroyed.
So obviously i casted out that fish the shark had a sniff banged it hooked it we've been sitting here for about 30 minutes trying to get it in on the noodle rod this is like this is like pe .6 line so it's like super light line and um there you go i got my favorite lure back.
And we just lost the shark on the beach i was trying to put my gopro on my head so i can show you is but oh well let's keep walking the afternoon could get very very bloody interesting that was epic okay i can see another black shadow but that does not look like a shark oh man that's.
Right in front of it come on come on come on what is that there is so many strange things in the water right now what is that all right good cast right in front of it let's see if we can uh make it eat this delicious lure no that's strange whatever that is.
One more one more oh oh my god we've got it we got it no no no no no no no no that's massive oh no i'm gonna get spooled oh no oh no oh no oh no i gotta chase it we gotta chase it run down the beach what the hell is this man.
Oh no why did i cast at it what is this thing oh look at this fully locked drag that drag is fully locked right now look at the rod i'm gonna get spooled ladies and gentlemen i shouldn't have casted that fish i need to run let's run i need to run up here.
Ah this is a really really big fish and um i don't know what i don't know what it is again it was just a black shadow it's not a shark i don't know what it is this is not a shark i don't know it's big and it's angry it's splashed out there before it comes shooting in here.
I don't know what this is but it's big look at the neuter rod in all its glory doing what it does best catching fish that it's not supposed to no that's it it's gone i'm quite happy that i didn't get spooled i just had to hold the spool then and let the lewis snap off.
I think the lure is gone that was a bloody experience wasn't it that is by far the biggest thing that noodle rod has ever hooked and i'm guessing what happened was there was a remora on top of a stingray or there was a remora swimming next to shovel no shark or a stingray.
And that's what i casted out was the remora and then obviously underneath is a stingray who knows what that was felt like a stingray big heavy slob in the water a little bit devastated just lost my favorite fishing lure hopefully it's floating out there someone will pick it up definitely 100.
Somebody is gonna roast me in the comments section for doing that and um look i'm sorry but that's just part of fishing and uh i guarantee you sitting in traffic nine to five when you go on your job every day your car burns more emissions and ruins the planet more than that one fishing.
Lure sitting out there in the ocean so that's enough from me anyway let's keep going we're gonna go get a bloody tailor hopefully the tide's not too low and we'll um cook him up it's going to be a banging sunset we've only got a little bit of light left let's do it doggies.
We can do this all right it is safe to say that i am going to have the worst sleep i've ever had in my life my legs are absolutely covered in sand fly bites right now and if you don't know what a sand fly is lucky you they're a tiny little flyer it's not even a fly it's like a pin.
Prick head and they either piss on you or they bite you one of the two i'm not too sure it's like little rumors that get thrown around but my legs right now mate they are on fire i have red dots it's like i have chicken pots chicken pox.
Red dots all over me legs and they are the most itchiest annoying irritating little freaking things legs are covered in them anyway we're not going to give up we're back at taylor rock which is um all of this before was underwater so now i don't know what i'm fishing it's.
Kind of strange but all of the oysters are exposed so if we don't get any taylor we're gonna have a big dirty feet of oysters it is looking absolutely beautiful as soon as that's as that sun's going down the colours are coming out it looks really good so let's see if this side of the.
Peninsula still provides on low tide boom come on let's give me one fish fight height hey very very strange well it's not really strange but the taylor rock no longer exists obviously when the tide sucks out the.
Fish go with it as well that's why fishing tides is such an important thing so the fishing is over it looks like um we ain't eating fish for dinner that's for sure but it's okay because we have a plan b and the plan b is just as good as plan a so what we're gonna do now fishing is dead.
It's completely low tide i'll show you in a minute it's like sandy shallow stand out here so we're gonna go on an oyster graze we've probably got about i don't know 40 minutes 30 minutes a beautiful sunset before this turns into an orange wall and um it's just going to light up it's going.
To look dope so let's go and eat a couple oysters i'm bloody hungry it's the first thing i've eaten since 4 30 this morning so it's gonna taste not too bloody bad it's harvesting time i am so bloody hungry look at this there is one literally where the camera's sitting.
This dish opened up like an absolute little dreamboat i know you guys can't see this right now but i'm sure yeah look at this the freshest most beautiful ball of snot you'll ever see oh had a little crab in it sometimes you.
Get crabs in the oysters and they go weird anyway i'm gonna have fade have a look at this this whole entire rock wall they are if you don't know what an oyster looks like all these little shells or oysters that's what you get out of it.
Absolutely absolutely delicious some people don't like them sometimes you get a little bit of shell but i absolutely bloody love them and there is a little bit of a trick to opening oysters but once you get that trick down pat they are so easy to get out it tastes like nothing you've ever eaten.
Before that doesn't come any fresher than that oh it's the most salty delicious oh you need to get the right one like this one here look in bang pop enjoy 15 minutes has passed about 35 oysters are past these lips and um.
Pretty happy we didn't catch a fish actually this is what are those mozzies bro this is the wild wester right and um look at this one this is just absolute bloody beautiful these taste so much better than the fish would have tasted anyway going up here there's some big dogs up.
Here when i was fishing at taylor rock before what a bloody day have a look at this i've got a little knife or a kind of big knife full of oysters that is going to be the last oysters i eat because um i've had about 50 now and i i could probably keep going you know but.
What a day oysters to finish unfortunately we didn't get a fish to cook but hey those oysters honestly probably better i reckon what lucky last oyster oh ah that was bloody good all right if you're if you are an og.
Follower and you are still watching this video right now do your boy a massive favor and smash that thumbs up button for me go on hit it go hit it hit it yes thank you one more someone else yeah yes thank you mad dogs all right that is pretty much it from me.
In this video we got no sunlight left it's pretty much gone it's just about to go and dip into the ocean and um i've got a massive forward drive trip back to where i started it's been a bloody beautiful day i just had a beautiful feed we put the noodle rod through.
