SOLO OVERNIGHT CAMPING – EAT WHAT I FIND – the worst evening of my life – EP 31
SOLO OVERNIGHT CAMPING - EAT WHAT I FIND - the worst night of my life -
YEA DAWGIES welcome back to another one!
In this video, the plan was to do a noodle rod session catch and cook whatever we catch but not everything goes to plan and it turned into a solo overnight camping mission where I had to eat whatever I could find, sleeping on the rocks was interesting. It was the worst sleep of my life getting eaten alive by bugs...

Oh so [ __ ] man never again what's going on doggies and welcome to a noodle rod session so it's just you me and the noodle rod in the absolute middle of nowhere it is dry as hell out here it's hot i've been walking hoofing it through i don't even know what you'd.
Call this looks like feels like i'm in bloody africa i've been walking for three to four hours now trying to find clear water it's slowly getting clear so what i'm gonna do now i'm gonna start fishing but it's late afternoon my bike is um my bike is like i said a three to four hour walk that way so.
Now this is going to turn into an overnight thing i'm just going to sleep here tonight i have absolutely nothing so it's going to be an interesting sleep all i've got is this backpack the noodle rod and these clothes that i'm wearing so we're just going to literally sleep on.
The rocks lay on the rocks fall asleep wake up in the morning and continue this noodle rod session because i haven't even really fished today i've got one long time this morning casting this little lure so uh we're really close to the water it looks a lot clearer now so this water it's still not really.
Crystal clear but it's a lot clearer than it was up that way cactus everywhere ah this is what i love doing hey this is exploring so it actually looks kind of clear it's not as clear as it should be but it is still pretty clear.
So the reason that the water's not clear is that we've had rain inland like inland of the island had rain and when we get rain inland the water comes down all these little rivers and opens up to the ocean and then you get this like muddy dirty clay coloured water and i suppose it's.
Mixed with the fresh water and it comes out and it just floods the coastline of the whole island but just it just sucks for fishing so that's why i've been walking for so many hours today trying to find clean water and i think we're just on the edge of the clean water now and here she is so a lot of people ask.
Me what this rod is right so this is a storm discovery storm discovery ultra light spin series it's six six long the line is one to four pound so one to four pound is it's so it is like super light if you know what p e means in fishing like p e two four six eight.
Ten this is p e point six so this is like thinner than dental floss like this is the thinnest thinnest line and these lures that you use are tiny like this is a really small little this is what i got the long time on this morning it's a tiny little lure but um it is by far my favorite rod and.
Reel to use it's so fun it's light you can cast it all day it doesn't hurt your back it's just the dream set up so for the people who want to know what it is it's a storm discovery such a sick little rod oh yeah and i'm not getting paid to say that either i've always wanted to say.
That you know when you watch videos and people are like this isn't it this isn't an advert or whatever yeah no i'm not getting paid to say that it's just my general i actually love using this little thing so let's put it to work let's see if we can get some dinner because now my plans have completely changed i.
Need to find somewhere to sleep tonight i've got nothing to sleep on now it's going to get exciting i've literally wasted a whole day just walking but that's all good all right it's uh very very quiet and another thing that the problem is big big tides today and it's going to like low tide now so it's super low.
Tired so pretty much everything right now is against us all right let's go there is uh not a lot happening there i kind of want to punch up the coast there and find a little bit of a spot where i can sort of make a base camp now because because we're going to stay the night i.
Kind of want to find somewhere where we can have a fire like there's a lot oh no there's lots of stuff that we can eat if we don't get a fish i'm not so so much worried about food but there is a shitload of food we can eat there's cactus there's oysters there's lots of little.
Fish in here not really fast enough food just want to get a fish on the noodle rod i've literally been here all day and we've got no fish i haven't been fishing i've been walking so and another thing that you guys ask me all the time is what do i actually have inside this backpack when i do these.
Trips so maybe this afternoon or tomorrow morning or at some point we'll i'll empty this bag out on the ground and i'll show you everything that i take on a trip like this rocks are slippery as [ __ ] right now i'm gonna case it properly yeah right oh oh man this is.
So slippery how am i going to stand on this rock here we go made it to the platform come on big dog oh there we go there's a long time right there look at him come on look at it had one little one little crack and then [ __ ] it off.
All right if we get a long time that's going straight on the fire just there as soon as it hits the water they attack it look ready yes come on come on so there was a couple of little super aggressive long tom there but they're really small like if you don't know what a long time looks like it's part of the.
Garfish family so it's like a long it's a long skinny fish and then it's got a mouth which is just full it's like not not even a mouth it's more like a beak it's like a bird's beak which is full of these tiny little pins of teeth and trying to set a hook like that entire in this inside the fish's little.
Mouth is like it's so bloody hard so we'll just keep pushing on there's a lot out there but they're pretty small so i think what i'm what i'm gonna do in the future is invest in a pole spear like if i had a pole spear i could just be out there spearing fish right now.
Cooking a fire that sounds so good to me like i want to get myself a pole spear but do it like primitive like no flippers no white belt like still go primitive style but just have the spear you know well i'm just spitting everywhere yeah that'll be sick maybe i'm going to.
Look into getting a pulse beer ah looks like we might be going hungry tonight who knows so after about 375 000 cars probably even more we've just got our first fish for the day now this little thing is called a gurned and um.
You can eat them they're pretty good people say they're good eating they're really good bait but they're super bony so this is what a girl would look like just have a look at the teeth in this thing but man that thing is like a full-on dinosaur.
That is gnarly so we've got this little fish i'm not going to keep him i'm going to quickly put him back in the water but that's what a gurned looks like pretty gnarly looking creature hectic mouth where he chill out buddy all right let's get him back in the water.
So that's a gernad go back to hassle some little bait fish see ya mate i am right now i am completely winging it i've got no idea what i'm doing right now so it's so weird when you try to plan something like i wanted to be fishing here at high tide but.
Obviously i was walking away from that dirty water at high tide and i've missed the tides now i'm a good a good good good steam back to my bike so by the time i walk to my bike it's going to be dark i am just going to sleep i reckon right here this right here is going to be my.
Bedroom for the night like this looks this will be kind of comfortable it's like small pebbles and make that nice and flat so i'll just lay there i'll sleep there we start a little fire down here maybe it'll keep the bugs away at night and we've got heaps of cactus so you.
Can't eat this cactus this is obviously extremely old like look how skinny it is ah that'll keep the bloody sasquatch away tonight hopefully let's go get some forehead wood wow wow all right so this is already starting to.
Look like a little bit of a house we've got this is our fireplace that's going to be the bedroom for the night we've got our big sticks here it's not really it's not really neatly put there but whatever that's probably enough enough for the afternoon maybe i'll go.
Get a bit more for tonight but here's our fire i like that in just a minute what do i have in my backpack like what do i carry in this bag on a trip like this so i'll open up the bag now i'll show you guys what's inside all right so this is actually a pretty sick bag these two.
Front pockets here are what i use every day so zinc or sun cream actually a funny story about this right every time i see this or i put this on it makes me happy because the only time i wear this is when i'm going fishing or going to the beach surfing so this little stick here is a stick of.
Happiness every time i wear it it makes me happy so we've got zinc cream we've got a lot of i've got no idea whose lighter that is that's not my lighter but we've got a lighter asthma puffer and the good old pocket knife so that's everything in that pocket in this pocket we have a super super basic first aid.
Kit there is like panadol band-aids um tape just like skin prep just a very basic very very basic first aid kit oh here's my lighter so this lighter is interesting right it's got about three to four meters now maybe three meters of a super strong nylon string there and then it's got.
Another i don't know 12 wraps of duct tape around it so this duct tape comes in handy so much so whenever i'm out fishing or camping or something i can just pick off a bit of this duct tape here and like it just it comes in handy so often like a small bit of duct tape like this.
You just rip it off the water and you can fix something or you stick something to something it is actually very handy so that's a good idea to do in the bush this pocket what's that a little bit of toilet paper you can't go anywhere without toilet paper mate but the main reason for this is starting.
Fires when everything's wet i'll keep it in a plastic bag so it stays dry so that's everything out of those two pockets this all right see i've got stuff everywhere this here is salt pepper soy sauce coffee toothpick a little dry bag to keep the coffee.
Not so the coffee doesn't get in the salt doesn't go sticky so that's another good thing to keep and then in here we've got man i've got some random stuff i a little bit of string oh this is some rubbish i picked up off the beach but that comes in handy and then duct tape.
Duct tape i don't even know i had that and then this is where the business is so this is where i keep spare gopro i've got a head torch um gopro head strap another torch so there's a lot of stuff in here what's this i was like a windsock for the gopro.
Drone battery and then i got my drone in this bag here drone controller and then these are just two bags full of gopro batteries that's batteries that's batteries in this pocket we have keys for the bike keys for my house what else we've got a little bit a little bit of cash in there all right.
Let's go into the next pocket up what have we got here we've got barley coffee favorite a mask yeah good on your corona um more tape i don't really know why i have half of the stuff in here fishing pliers another splittering pliers for the little baby.
Splitterings scissors fishing rod wraps batteries in there what's this soft plastics all right let's open up this big pocket so this is actually a very handy pocket you can fit so much stuff in here so i've got that's all the water i've got until well.
Until i leave here so that's all the water i've got for tonight got a tackle box with fishing lures so this tackle box has got i don't know just random just a complete random array of lures squid jigs just really really random stuff there's.
That lure that we found from last episode we've got the leader for the noodle rod now this is the noodle rod lure box so in here we've got our smaller lures our little diving lures little baby plastics that's in that side little poppers just enough fishing a little bit just enough fishing gear to.
Get you through a day and then on this side you've got like micro jigs which are like super micro jigs that's tiny jig heads you know or just enough stuff to get you through i always carry a mask in this bag just in case.
And then we've just got our fishing rod holder rod sleeve and last but not least a raincoat so i'll keep this out because this raincoat is all i've got to sleep on tonight so we'll leave that there but i like to keep all of this stuff in this bag because this bag's usually the bag that i do like big big missions with.
It's not when i do like solo survival missions when i take just a pocket knife obviously i don't take any of this crap but what i do like a mission like today i like to have all this stuff because if you're prepared and like right now i'm actually going to be sleeping here which i had no idea i was going to do.
This tonight like everything here now comes in handy like this light is going to come in handy to start a fire this mask is not going to come in handy but you know what i mean like if i hurt myself or whatever in the morning i've got coffee here and i've got coffee here all we need to do is go find a can to boil the water in so.
It's good to be prepared you know like i've got a headlight for tonight i don't know i just like to have this stuff always in my bag all the time i just pick up this bag and go it never leaves this bag so much easier with the lighter i haven't started a fire with a lighter for a long time usually in these videos.
We start fires like obviously if you guys watch the channel you know we watch start it with bottles and stuff but the luxury of having a lighter in your bag oh it's bloody beautiful that's pumping this wood is insane this is like seriously seriously dry wood then again.
It is like boiling hot right now all right so now i'm starting to froth i'm getting back into my my little vibe this is my favorite thing to do in the world apart from surfing fishing and just being in the ocean this right now is my.
Favorite thing to do like the oh this is the ultimate freedom there's no one telling you what to do there's no cars there's no traffic lights there's no [ __ ] this is the best thing ever and there's actually one more pocket in that bag which i haven't shown you guys it's not really an exciting pocket but.
I haven't showed you all the pockets there's one left so this bag has a laptop pocket and in the laptop pocket i obviously don't keep a laptop but i keep sandwich bags which all right stay there so i keep sandwich bags which when i put fish fillets in these i obviously take them home then we wash.
Them and we reuse them to try to keep the plastic down and in here i've got a bin bag all right so it's going to be good it's going to be good jesus christ we're going to get out of this smoke it's going to be good if i can actually eat something like i was just thinking there's heaps of crabs over there but.
They're like little baby crabs there's and again there are snails everywhere so maybe later tonight i'll eat snails but while i've got probably 20 minutes of light left what i'm gonna do i'm gonna tuck my mask on and i'll quickly run out there why is this so smoky what are you doing i'm gonna run out.
There and um swim out there and see if i can get like a sea urchin or a couple of i don't know snails that we can eat for dinner or i don't know i gotta go i'm running out of time but i'm just gonna leave the camera here that was hard work but look at this big mama we got a sea.
Urchin this is going to taste so good all right i'm going to cut him open i tell you what if starfish were edible we would be eating like kings right now there are so many starfish out there like big big big blue starfish everywhere all over the bottom.
And i was out there for about i don't know 20 minutes 20 15 to 20 minutes i've seen one urchin the whole time so we've got him and we're going to cut him up so the first thing we do we're going to cut the spikes off it and this is why it is so good to have everything in one backpack so when you.
Do these adventures you just grab it and go because you need scissors for this and i've got scissors so it's just convenient all right so the first thing we're going to do is cut off all of these spikes but make sure you don't do this anywhere near your cam.
Or anywhere where other people are going to walk because if you get these things in your feet i tell you what it's not fun so it's probably really bloody hard to see me right now because it's actually really dark so i'm just going to cut the sea urchin in half what you want to do is eat this.
Little bit inside i don't know if you can see this but it's like uh i'll try to get it out i don't even know if you guys can see me it seems pretty dark for a gopro but this is what we want to be eating this here these are beautiful this is gonna this is gonna give me a mad little taste.
For the night so you get i think six or eight of these around the whole thing and that there oh man i love it i just want to like roll it around in my mouth it tastes like um i don't even know what it tastes like creamy fish creamy something very creamy strong taste so good man.
So there's another piece it's pretty good yeah baby burn baby burn wow these leaves go up like there's no tomorrow all right this is made for the night i'm literally just gonna sit here trying to dry my shorts is the first thing i want to do if i can dry my.
Shorts that's going to be beautiful because it's gonna be an uncomfortable sleep with these wet shorts on but i'm just gonna um sit here sit around the fire and just chill like just soak it in and probably have an early night there's nothing else to do now so i guess i'll see you guys in the morning.
And we'll go from there i've got no idea what we're going to do tomorrow so it's going to be very interesting all right doggies good night i'll see you tomorrow yo this is this is by far the worst night's sleep i've ever ever had i am getting i am getting eaten alive by mosquitoes.
Right now i can't i can't sleep i've got a bin bag over my legs just so the [ __ ] mozzies they stop biting me i have bites like literally i'm trying to tuck my hands in so [ __ ] i've packed up pretty much i went and packed up my fishing rod i've packed up everything i was going to walk.
Out of here but what's the point like i think it's like 12 o'clock at night now 11 30 11 49 so i don't know i've packed up my stuff i was going to walk out of here but sort of like the bin bag stops the mozzies this is stopping him but i'm just.
I'm like sweating bullets right now i've got a raincoat on and a bin bag covering my legs and i'm sweating bullets so uh i don't know it's gonna be a [ __ ] night so [ __ ] man never again good morning um that was up there with one of the most haggard sleeps i've ever had.
Ever ever ever like the mozzies here are so thick i tried rubbing leaves on my legs i tried rubbing like getting the sap out of the leaves different different leaves through the night rubbing it all over my legs my hands man it was bad but the sun's coming up.
Now it's just started well it's not up yet but the sky is getting nice and blue i'm not going to let last night's [ __ ] sleep ruin today's mission we need to get a fish on the noodle rod i didn't really sleep last night it was kind of like i'd dialed like not off and then.
I just wake up because i was either sweating my ass off in that plastic bag or i was getting bitten by mosquitoes so the only thing i don't have in that backpack is mozzie spray so that is the um first thing i'm going to put back in there is the mosquito spray i don't know where it went.
I don't know i've been sitting on this rock just kind of like watching the sunrise i don't know if you guys can see it now but that sun is just starting to rise behind me so oh man i am so tired i'm not feeling the vibes from this place after last night so i'm gonna hoof it out of here let's go.
Somewhere different hopefully we can get a fish on the noodle rod ah what a what a bloody night that was okay i'm literally just gonna punch it back to my bike i'm back in the um african plains again so big walk ahead of me hopefully we'll go find some water.
Hopefully someone sells coffee around and where my bike is and we'll start our day fresh we'll start on a new leaf and we'll uh we'll get a little bend in this little baby hopefully let's do this we'll see you guys on the other side wherever we end up y'all.
what we've done the wind's picked up right so as i was walking back to the bike the wind was started really starting to squall and it was picking up so i was like all right we'll go inland and we'll do some fresh water fishing so today we're.
Fishing for something called a snakehead and this is so much fun so what we're doing we've got this little like frog lures and these things weigh absolutely nothing that's why the noodle rod comes in handy because i can cast anything on this and i can cast it far so.
As you would have just seen when i had the seagull on the sky all these little pools of water when it floods they fill up they went up there but eat when it floods the water comes up and the snake head move from pond to pond and then obviously the water goes away and they're stuck in these little.
Ponds so what we're gonna do today we'll just walk around and we'll just flick this little frog in each of these ponds and hopefully we can get a snakehead like i don't know it's pretty hard going i've been here before we've got two so but it is a really really fun way to fish and if you get one it's just like.
Hell yeah boy so let's try let's see if we get a snake head i'm going to start flicking this floor i'm so tired i can't even speak flicking this frog around and hopefully we'll get one let's go you're joking all right just to make the day a little.
Bit more interesting i've got my little frog and it's stuck on this stick there and i can't get to it so i've got this massive ass log what we're trying to do is push this log this is going to end in disaster out there then i'm going to try to.
Balance on this log oh yeah this ain't going to work i'm going to go all the way to the end of the log pull my line get the stick snap the stick get my frog back all right we're looking good oh yeah come on frog come here oh no i'm going down oh this sucks.
Come on oh i'm so close oh this is the world's prickliest tree get off look at the prickles on this thing dude oh my god so i come in peace look at this thing it's about to charge at me stay there crazy cows man.
Well i'll tell you what the day is definitely getting on and i've had no luck on this frog changed colors changed the lure i don't i don't know what's going on i've seen one good sized snakehead but he just wasn't feeding so i don't know what's going on man it's.
Really really weird but i'll show you guys this frog it's pretty sick so the reason that i can cast like over this vegetation and just pop it back is because that's what the frog looks like there's no the hooks aren't exposed so it's just.
Getting pulled over the weeds and it doesn't get caught but this is super soft so when the frog fish comes in boom it bites it those two hooks there become exposed and that's how you hook it so we've got snake out here before and uh i don't know what's going on.
Right now but i've definitely done some miles about 3 000 casts nothing that little frog bar that's gonna get belted come on dude i literally just saw these three guys with car batteries on their backs like hooked on their backs like a backpack.
And then they had these like two metal rods and i was like what are they doing with them and then they walk up to the water like into the weeds and they obviously like electrocute the water and then these little fish heaps of little fish were floating and this guy all the net was just collecting and they were like.
Pillaging like proper like i don't know if it kills the fish but obviously we're shocking them so man i've got how's field day supposed to get a fish on the frog if these guys are using car batteries man so we've been flicking this frog around for five hours.
And uh not even one hit nothing so i'm done i'm calling it unfortunately we didn't get to put a bend in the beloved noodle rod so demo but um that's fishing man especially fishing here it is thrashed out like there is land based fishing here is extremely hard but it's challenging and it's all about the.
Adventure for me i love doing these adventures so thanks for watching much love and i will see you in the next one yeah doggies
