SURVIVAL CHALLENGE – with HAND SPEAR and BOW and ARROW. Can I Discover Food In Mangroves?
There is there is there is a little shock is coming straight for me oh and the mangroves man what is going on my doggies welcome back to another video right now we're out here in a brand new Little Creek we are up to absolutely no good we've got a bow and arrow we're gonna try to make one hell of a feed around the fire this.
Arbor have a look at this look at that there are four or five big mullets swimming straight down the creek right there what we've got today we've got bow and arrow we've got four arrows linked up on the bow and um brand new Creek never been here before no I've got no idea what to expect but I just seen four or five big.
Mullets swimming down the back there the problem is that the mullet are staying in the center and they're staying deep it's going to be hard we ain't got no string we're shooting old school bow style this is going to be super fun this is going to be a sick day let's get it just gonna try to make my way down to the mouth of the inlet of this little.
Creek here then I'm going to push me way back along the edge big tides today it's going to be good look at this dude this Creek is absolutely loaded with mullet and I mean it's loaded with mullet the problem that I got right now is this Creek is about three to four meters deep in the center here we've got.
An incoming tide which is completely playing in our favor we want that tide to be pushing up it's going to bring the fish into this little Creek System here but if you can see this man I don't know if you guys are going to see it but there is heaps of mullet man this is going to be a hard day but we'll get one hopefully we get a couple look at the.
Size of that horse I'm not sure if you guys can see these fish here let me give you a little bit of polarization not sure if you guys can see him out there but there's a whole heap of mullet in the center of the creek there they're big dogs man big and they're deep I'm not gonna be able to shoot him yet there's a mullet right there can you see.
Him that's a good sized fish it's about around there somewhere probably look at the mullet they're so big oh my God wait there are heaps of mullet in this Creek they're sitting very very deep but look at this that's a massive drop off right there all right that was about four or five mallets sitting there but they're.
Sitting about a meter under I'm not gonna have much luck shooting a bow like this they were big mullet man let's keep sneaking around hi look at this half a fishing rod dude I am watching some ridiculously big fish swim past me right now the problem.
Is that they're just hanging super deep it is a low tide right now but about three or four hours before the tide fills up to a full tide so what I want to do is when that tide fills up this entire area here where I'm standing all of this here becomes underwater but only it's about 150 mil deep this whole section here what these fish do is they.
Come out of this little Pond or pool of Creek of water here they come up onto this and this is where they want to feed they'll be feeding in here and that's the time I want to take my shot they're only sitting in about 100 to 150 mL of water there's a big mullet come up here to feed but right now look at this this place is full of fish.
Man it's a big mullet they're all sitting in the center and they're sitting super deep I'm just going to keep walking and looking but as soon as that tide starts pushing over this bank here look at this one that's a good fish look at that look at the size of that horse down there you're joking.
If we don't get a fish today look at the size of that thing that's big man that's what we want that's what we come for I don't know if you guys can see him this little brim down here this place is alive have a go at this year that's a big old turtle shell boy oh look at that thing.
She's seen better days I smells bloody delightful smells like it looks like that's a big shower didn't it big old turtle there's his underbelly there that's what the underneath looks like that stings bro big.
So many broom in here what as always nothing goes to plans in these missions so what's happening right now is that tide has just taken its time it's not pushing in it's just sort of like very very dormant right now it's going to start pushing in pretty soon so what I've done is I've come out here to.
The open beaches have a look at this I am the only person I'm the only footprints on this beach for absolutely miles mate what we're doing is we're gonna run into this Mangrove system in the background here we're going to suss this out have a look for a crab hopefully slinging arrows through a fish that's the aim of the game just want to.
Sling an arrows through a fish but um that Creek over there is holding some big dogs but they're just sitting a little bit too low you know they're about two or three meters under the water no good for this kind of setup I've got here so I've got to wait without water to push in while the water pushes in we'll go on mangroves.
Foreign this doesn't look too bad big Stingray over there heaps of little shoving those sharks however the shovel noses man heaps a little shovel nose Rays or shoving those sharks call them what you will Stingray just over there could be some big flat heads Flathead.
Sitting in here here we go here we go here we go there's a shark right here shark a bloody beautiful eating too have a look at this he's coming straight at me oh no yeah I just fell off a little shock right there one shark here.
Another shark out the back there he's a bit bigger this one's a little bit smaller he's a perfect eight and sized shark because I have a pot shot eh oh you're lucky mate all right there's sharks around here one up here just missed one then bloody beautiful eating.
Here we go we've got a little shark coming straight for us look at this little shark he's coming straight for me come on you big dog it's right there he's coming straight for us just just pulled the pin on him only a little fella good eating.
Have a go at this Mangrove system she's thick can't really get in anywhere all right lots of seaweed around there'd be no crabs in here the seaweed's pushed in big time thick very thick.
Have a go at these spiders here these things are everywhere big dog eye they own the mangroves man look at him they are absolutely everybody ready shark right there beautiful little shark look at him another one out the back oh he just took off.
One shark two shark ain't no shortage of them if you get real bloody hungry this is food here check that out you see that Stingray sitting right there we get hungry that's food.
When you're out here you're doing these kind of missions it always pays to be observant what I'm doing right now is I'm just walking through this probably Knee Deep to ankle deep water and I'm just looking what's going on on the sand there's lots of sand Whiting there's lots of chauvinist sharks but there's also lots of these shells and that right.
There is called a cockle shell so if there's like a dead open Cocoa [ __ ] cockle shell like that out here I dare say there's going to be cockles which are buried under the Sands what I'm going to do is just going to spend the next couple of minutes dragging me hand through the sand see if we can grab a couple of cockle shells if we can grab a.
Couple of them they're bloody good eating they're bloody good bait so let's see if we can grab a couple drag my hands with the sand and um see how we go foreign we've got two cockles in my hand here and down here we've got a fair few enemy pocket.
Probably what do we got here they're all beautiful little cockles there we've probably got about two handfuls of cockles in my pocket which is enough for a fade so it's good to know we can get cockles out here if we want them I'll see if I can get a couple more we're gonna punch back into the creek.
There hopefully that Tide's picked up we can lay an arrow through a fish I'm shoving a shark right there but at least we've got a little bit of a feed going on now we've got a couple of cockles that's good going they're lovely they're going to be good around the fire.
Oh we're going back into the creek pocket full of cockles let's see if we can add a fish to that menu oh so slimy dude there's a couple of mullet right there that's going to be a very hard shot mate this is going to be up there with.
One of the hardest little Creeks I've ever had to try to bowl and arrow fish in these fish are so on to it they're sitting right on the bottom of the creek there's no way in the way you'll be able to sling an arrow into one they sit right on the bottom all the big fish do anyway the little fish man I'll be able to kill it with little.
Mullet and stuff but I don't want to get a little mullet I want to get big dogs what I'm going to do is that's this tide is just dribbling and it's taking forever to fill up this is where I want to be eventually shooting with the bow and arrow but that's going to take another two or three hours what I'm going to do is.
Chuck on a mask and snorkel grab a gidgee or a little hand spear I'm gonna jump in the water and see if I can plug a couple of Muller with a hand spear the water looks absolutely dirty it's not as it's not as clear as I would have hoped but look you're just going to take the good with the bad but here to Chuck a fish on a fire and chucking a fish on a.
Fire is what we're gonna do we're gonna go swap this bow and arrow out for a hand spear jump in the water swim around see if we can shoot one yep that's the plan nothing goes to plan idea ever look at this thing man we're gonna get absolutely anything right now there's Mangrove Jack I've seen little baby.
Mangrove Jack of saying silver brim big Whiting heaps of big mullet a couple of little Stingers there's so much stuff in this tiny little creek look at this Creek look we're about to go in this is sick mate all right let's get in there and see if we can plug a fish with this poxy little spear.
Foreign foreign so I I cannot say anything like I'm on it honestly I can't see a thing out here right now I just think I don't know if you guys.
Could say it on the GoPro but this little Mangrove here underneath there there's a couple of Mangrove Jack but they're probably just a little bit too small to shoot but it's a bloody good sign there's Mangrove Jack around here I'm just gonna keep going down with the current this little creek goes for so far man I'm just gonna go the whole way.
I've seen one mullet so far and I know there's millions in here so um let's just keep pushing and see how we go one mullet couple of Mangrove Jack visibility is about 10 centimeters in front of your head let's go foreign.
foreign dude I'm not gonna lie right now the visibility in this little creek is absolutely nothing I literally can't see the end of the spear like the visibility is not even to the end of the spear if.
We get a fish in here with a spear I am going to be bloody very very bloody happy about it let's see how we go there's a lot of grandeur we might be having Grand grunter and cockles around the fire but let's see how we go let's just continue down there it's so murky man look at this.
foreign foreign a mosquito down my snorkel into my throat down my throat man oh food you have got to be kidding me man we.
Were just out there diving for like 45 minutes to an hour in some of the murkiest dirtiest water I've ever seen I swallowed a goddamn mosquito straight down my snorkel into my lungs so now I've got a mosquito in my bloody chest right now that water was extremely murky look to be honest we definitely could have got a feed there's a heap of.
Grunter there's everything in there everything else in there is too small The Mangrove jacket too small to shoot the yellow yellow fin Brimmer too small to shoot could not see a mull of her laughing I think I saw two or three mile at that entire dive the water is absolute mud the right the tide is now picking up we got the bow and arrow.
Again I'm gonna do one more wrap with the bow and arrow if we don't get fish with the bow and arrow we're gonna have to resort to plan B we're still having a fight we're still having a hell good feed but it's just plan B all right there's mullet over there that's about 15 meters away I'm just gonna have a fun shot.
Oh wait there's mullet here hold on hold on there is actually mullet there not good not good drink bottle about 12 meters out if I can hit that I can hit a fish boom smash the drink bottle why can't I hit a fish man absolutely getting played by a mullet right now I've never seen this before.
Like usually when you get an incoming tight on these mangroves the mullet are sitting all up here feeding in the super shallow water but they're still down here in that deep water and I can't see obviously you guys just saw how cloudy that water is on the camera I can't see a meter past there I don't know that you can see them down the bottom there but.
There's no way we're slinging an arrow down there won't work so what we're going to do now I reckon is um go start a fire we haven't got much time left I've got to go find a little bit of firewood kick a fire in the ass and then um cook up a couple of cockles and I've got something bloody beautiful to cook as well so we don't.
Usually cook on the channel it's going to be good so um let's go and do that let's go start a fire no this place absolutely sucks that is the first time ever that I've been bowfishing and I've never ever seen a mullet like I did not see one mullet in the shallows obviously I've seen him.
In the deep water but I hate using the bow set up with the rope and the stupid little bloody thing that comes out I don't like doing that it's not fun don't like it so what we're doing now is I'm gonna give these bloody boots off my foot is absolutely killing me that broken foot that I had a broke a couple of months ago it is absolutely giving me.
Grief value like right now I'm almost about to give up on this video which I'm not gonna I promise I won't but my foot's killing me man I don't know what to do I'm gonna have to go back to the doctors or some sort of thing but that's future maths problems what we're doing now is we're gonna go cook one hell of a feed I'm gonna jump in the.
Troop dog we're gonna punch Inland a little bit and make a nice little Inland Fire and then um we're cooking some good food we've got cockles we've got a little bit of surprise food for you coming up very very bloody soon stick around we're gonna make one hell of a feed in the bush it's going to be good those cockles are going to be beautiful.
Fresh foreign actually I'll come down here and I'll just grab a little bit of this salt water because we're going to need this while we do the cooking Mission this arvo so we'll take a little bit of this water take him back up so this is usually.
Where the mullet are in this shallow water here but no bueno nothing all right I'm gonna see you guys around the fire very soon I'm bloody starving I've eaten nothing all day it's five o'clock in the arvo a little bit of sunlight left let's go we're gonna go on a little bit of a um.
Mission to find a nice little fire slash camping spot let's get it even though we got bugger old fish just a day like that makes me so bloody happy like walking around in the bow and arrow even though you don't get fish even with those bloody little hand spear we didn't get involved we I could have easily got.
Fish with the hands before we've got to nailed a couple of little grunter and stuff but no I'm a small fish man just slobs on this channel from now on that's what I reckon hey so that's what we're doing swabs only but that was a good day my ankle is closed I get a lot of people asking me.
Questions about my ankle like how's it going because obviously other people are in recovery and they're like you recovered so fast dude what's going on so when I broke my ankle I didn't actually get it fixed I just all they did was cut me open they sucked out the broken bone and they grinded the edges of the bone smooth so they don't like.
Have friction on each other um what I gotta what I do have to get done is a bulbs through two bones and the two bones out to form as one bone and it's like six to eight months which where I cannot walk like I can't walk and um I don't know that's just gonna I don't know what I'm gonna do six to eight.
Months without walking it's just gonna absolutely crush me so that's why I'm trying to put that surgery off but the last couple of videos I've been doing I've just been in serious pain so we'll see what happens just having a little bit of a yarn tip while we're driving right but yeah we're gonna we'll see what happens with the.
Ankle I think I'm gonna have to get the big surgery done and then what's gonna happen anyway I'll see who's around the foil oh well it looks like we're cooking our Buffet here have a go at this joint this is um this is a little bit different my dog he's never got this listen to this ready.
It's the sound of a car coming past that's gonna happen all the time so what just happened is I rang up the Ranger and I was like Hey girl making over fire because right now in Australia it is the peak of Summer and some days you're gonna have fires and some days you can't and um he said to me you're better off not having a fire right now because it.
Is blowing its tits off out there so what we've done is we've got this little shelter here troopy parked up here we've got a bin for our rubbish we've got a bin for our rubbish and we're gonna cook one hell of a feed right here on the side of the road doesn't get more Australian than this mate trophies here.
We've got some background noises here look at this big dog now can you give us a horn come bruh you Legend I was pretty bloody excited about having a fire but um you got to do what you got to do eh that's right this is still gonna taste bloody good it's still windy in here right all right.
Here's that little Billy with all those cockles inside there what I'm gonna do is I'm just gonna empty the cockles out on the table here there's probably about probably about 20 cockles right there then I'm gonna grab that salt water which we grabbed Chuck a little bit of that salt water into this Billy here probably about half we'll fill up the.
Ability about halfway just like that once that water comes up to a boil we're going to drop those cockles straight in yeah I've got to be kidding me have a look at this come and have a look at this so I've only just got back from Indo like two days ago I just jumped straight.
In the troopy and wanted to come and do this little bow and arrow Mission which we failed massively but while I was over in Indo have a go at that is Matt a mouse or mice have jumped into the car they've eaten a whole bag of flour and um they've put it absolutely everywhere look at this this flower over.
Everything in this drawer it's not good man that means that means there's a mouse living in the car That ain't cool oh a little bit of a change of plans here it is so windy right now that this little gas cooker it ain't doing nothing so I'm gonna use this one.
And this one is um this is this one's deadly come on come on all right here we go now that won't take long to boil all right now that I've got a little bit of boiling going over there on a jet.
Boil kind of setup what I've got here big disgustingly heavy cast iron pan we're gonna bang that cast iron pan on there and we're gonna heat him up as well well it is my water kitchen on the side the bloody Road and I'm loving it water's boiling so these are those cockles that we got today beautiful.
Little treats we're just going to drop them all in there boy these things are absolutely delicious bang them in there a couple of minutes as soon as they open up they're done oh that's getting bloody hot what we're gonna do is we're gonna get a little bit of butter take off a corner of butter here those.
Cockles are having one hell of a party oh yeah we're gonna melt that butter down on here Uncle party's done turn that off they're all open they're ready to rock and roll and down here we've got what I like to call plan B's when you don't get nothing with the bow and arrow you rip.
Out a disgustingly juicy beautiful T-bone steak out of the freezer just like that what we're gonna do is salt and pepper phasing the hell out of that side cut that salt and pepper in I've left this steak out of the car the steak right now is at room temperature so that steak right now is going.
Straight on to the cast iron pan a little bit of butter oh start at me a little bit of butter just like that on the cast iron pans we've got views look at these views it's not bad really Australia is good eh look at this cooking a feed on the side of the road on a park bench mate.
Big dirty T-bone steak on the cook a couple of cockers over here living it up boom just like that T-Bone steak's done cockles are done we're about to be eating very very good very very soon I just checked the back of the car again for a little a little bit of flour.
Because what I would have loved to do is make a damper so we can have cockles damper and a T-bone steak but unfortunately that Mouse is living in the car right now has just come through and just destroyed everything so I'm gonna have to catch that little bastard but it's all good what I'm going to do now is I'm going to make a Brewster.
Session but before we do that actually let's chill let's dig into this food this is the game plan this is now a field day surf and turf meal massive T-bone steak these beautiful little cockles that's a little bit of meat you get out of a cockle it's not much but it's a really nice tasting little bit of meats what I'm going to do is.
Just going to turn this into a surf and turf on the side of the road all right here we go here it is a little bit of T-bone steak a couple of cockles foreign that's actually how good I would have loved to put a mullet around the fire this arvo but oh you won't even let her fights today anyway.
Gotta follow the rules surf and turf it up it's pretty good actually are these little cockles on top well this video is taking a little bit of a random turn hasn't it well this is what you get you know you can't have a bloody win every time that's fishing.
Look at that a couple of cockles big juicy bit of steak some bloody Prof and I'm starving all right I'm gonna love these and ladies I'm gonna smash this T-bone steak I'm gonna make a barista session and then I've got a six hour drive up north from here to go do another video for you so um this one's a little bit of a random one but random.
