SURVIVING A long way off Australia – GIANT CRABS Rep and Cook dinner (Millions of Flys)
Look at the Chompers on that thing probably recommend you guys to go get your napkins and your biibs because um after you see what we're about to cook you will be dribbling all over yourself oh that's fish oh W what is going on my doggies welcome back to another video we're out in the mangroves right now we are chasing giant giant crabs I am so.
Deep in this mangr system I'm actually lost this is one of the thicker Mangrove systems we've ever been in before it's hectic very very hard to walks super super sloppy mud but there should be a couple of monster monster crabs in here check this out that's a turtle right there oh I'm sinking that's a.
Turtle you're dead or alive oh no it's not moving it's a turtle oh it's alive hey buddy what are you doing in here he's obviously waiting for that tide to push up so right now it's low tide all this will be underwater in a couple of hours this little turtle's just sitting in this little creek man.
The Barnacles growing on his back you all right buddy yeah he's all right he's all right I'll let him go he's just sitting in mud look how sloppy that mud is there poor thing he'll be right he's cool he's got a bit of fresh water you'll be right look at the mud weest the mud we're dealing with out here it's proper thick.
You know what we're going to find some solid crabs I reckon it's always worth just to have a little tap around in these pools sometimes you get a crab and you'll just be sitting down what's that stick sometimes you get a big crab in not just be sitting in.
Here have a look how Bloody dense it is in here this is incredible crab country haven't seen any signs of crabs haven't seen any holes yet but this is what we're dealing with very very thick thick mangroves I don't think we've ever been into a mangrove system which was so dense before like this root structure is that.
Thick here that the crabs wouldn't even be able to bloody Digger hole right now super thick there'd be some big boys in here they're going to be very very hard to find this is so sick sand flies are very very bloody thick in here it's all the FES probably would have checked about five holes by now all of them.
Empty there's a good hole down here no all right there's a couple of holes just there ah stabbed in the head with a stick there's another hole just here all right got a couple of holes to check around here let's see if we can get a crab out of one of them n this one's all.
Silted up you can feel that sloppy mud no good this is the first proper crab hole I've seen all day sand kicked up the front here big watery hole come on come on come on come on that's not even deep that's a crab hole right.
There that is what we're looking for oh it's a massive hole it goes way way back there's no one home though I can feel the back of the hole there and there's no crap in there it's very strange I've checked a heap of holes out here now none of them have got crabs in them it's very very weird this is an incredible.
Looking hole a lot of the holes got silt in them when you get silt in a hole it's like this very very fine sort of sort of like very fine fibrous mud I found when you get that in the holes you'll never find a crab in a hole it's almost like they've just abandoned their house and moved on but this is a another great hole it's no one's.
Home tell you what this is crazy I've been walking around for a good part of four to 5 hours through that thick Mangrove system and I did not find one crab good crab holes very very good crab holes just nothing in no no one's home which is really really strange there's no Footprints from other people being here.
I don't know it's pretty strange but what we're doing is we're going to go out to Open Country now we've tried the thick mangroves and obviously didn't so what I'm going to do is I'm going to come out to this more open Mangrove sort of style just have a look for some big holes that are Dig Dug up under some root systems all we want is a couple of.
Big crabs man cuz I've got a ridiculously good recipe to cook up later on around the fire if you guys are up to date with the videos this is day four of my 30 days out Bush so last couple of days I've just been sitting around doing a lot of driving a lot of looking around mangr got a good crab yesterday it wasn't worth filming that.
Was way away it was 2 hours away but um yeah day four of 30 days in the bush see if we can get a crab on this Bonet what I'm doing now is I'm just going to walk around there little re there little oyster sort of reef oyster Reef here and just look for holes in the reef so you can see right there there's a crab he's not big I I'll leave him.
Alone but you can see in there there's a little crab sitting in that Gap that's what we're looking for we're looking for crabs sitting in gaps like that usually it's there's another crab there look so this is usually where you get some big crabs sitting out here in this sort of oyster field so I'm just going to walk around check under all the Rocks.
You never know why got a crab in here all right we're got a crab oh slice me bloody leg open come on big dog that is what I'm talking about there's a crab look at the claw on that thing that's a good crab I just walked.
Around the mangroves from not even kidding you like four to five hour was trying to find a crab like this we come out here onto the little Reef second or third hole I checked crab in it he's got rock hard little buttons he's full as all hell good claw there another decent claw here has been fighting you can see that one's been nipped off but that.
There that is one crab I'm going to Chuck him in me bag we'll keep him alive we'll keep walking around I only want the one or one or two crabs so see if we can upgrade but here's a good crab look at that lollipop doggies that's a big lollipop we're going to be eating good good now this here is the perfect crab hole look at that goes all the way back.
There no one's home that's where you'd find a big monster that's a perfect hole not sure if you guys can see the Flies right now but they are so hectic man like wow I've just walked into this new part of the mangrove don't even know where I am right now on I'm map but I've just done a massive walk get these big beautiful.
Pools of water in the mangroves here this would be fun with the bow and arrow there's a couple of mullet here but want to see if I can upgrade that crab to a bigger one it's good but it's not good good so going to keep greasing around here look at this man look at the mullet this will be sick with the bow and arrow in.
Here there'll be a big CB around here somewhere surely look at this Turtle what are you doing buddy there's a crab hole right here there's a bloody turtle sitting right next to it there's nothing in the.
Hole there's the turtle look at this beautiful thing he's also sitting here waiting for that tide to come up he's stuck in this little pool here he'll be right that's so epic here we go doggies here we go here we go we got crab I don't know how big it is don't know if it's even a big crab.
But we've definitely got a crab in this hole and it's kind of exciting cuz today's pretty hard going he's giving me a good little nudge we' got a crab in this hole oh oh oh he looks all right I would go in with my hand but right now he's very.
Angry oh there's a claw here's a good crab there's a one claw there's two claws there's a crab look at that thing that's what we came for doggies he's oh he's just dropped a claw he's a good crab he's a bloody good crab he took a little bit of work to get out of that all look at that for a bloody lollipop a now this is the crab.
That we've come looking for there's one big lollipop there's the second claw that's a bloody good claw he's a very very nice crab you can see he's a buck under there he is rock hard which means he's going to be full to the brim with meat but that CL CLW right there there we're going to be eating extremely well another claw here look at.
That that was a good little hole it took me a little while to get him out of there but we ended up getting him out he's a beautiful crab all right we eating proper now anything we catch from this this point on in is just going to be Catch and Release or upgrade and release that's a ripping crab yeah things are most certainly looking up now.
Out here in the mangroves we've got two beautiful crabs in me backpack I can't even bloody close the zipper up they're that big so we got two crabs now I'm going to start making me way back to where we started I did a bloody long walk to get here we're in a completely new little system here as well so big walks to get here but it was.
Worth it we got that second crab start steaming back and I'm going to keep checking crab holes on the way obviously looking for Treasure trying to find turtles doing all that kind of cool stuff but uh we'll just keep moving there you are look that is I I've swallowed five flies.
Today with this on my face bro they are so hectic I just spat him out he was right down here little fly just sitting in the back of me throat dude these things are so brutal out here I don't know I got no idea how we're going to cook like I want to make something really delicious something we've never made.
With crab before but uh it's just it's just uncook right now with all these flies around got to try to figure out something to do anyway we got two little slobs in the backpack right now so I'm pretty froed out got a long way to walk back to the car the bloody broken foot starting to hurt a little bit but uh that's all.
Right all right here's the game plan I'm just going to start cooking there's no I I've got no other option there's nothing else I can do there's no there's no point in sitting here bloody winging about the Flies and about the wind and stuff so but it's going to start cooking a hell of a feed that's.
What's going on right now I'm going to cook it right down here on the bottom of the bank the mud is like right behind the camera the mangroves are right there so it's quite safe the wind's coming from there if any coals get pushed they're just going to get pushed onto the wet mud so we're not going there's no chance of us starting a fire just.
Going to make a little bit of a hole here I'm just going to Chuck these crabs straight on a flame I should I could probably recommend you guys to go get your nap your napkins and your bibs because um after you see what we're about to cook you will be dribbling all over yourself we're not just cooking crabs but doing.
Something else with the crab and it's going to be I reckon it's going to be pretty good that's perfect all right so I'm going to show you guys how you can actually start a fire with a shell like that that's the perfect shell all right so you want to grab your shell you want a shell about that size.
What you do you figure out where the wind's blowing from and you throw it as far as you can down there because you actually can't start a fire with a shell what you can start a fire with though is with a lighter see just like that we got a fire going now this down here is the perfect fire what I've done is I've got a grate.
Sat I've just sat a wire grate on top of the fire a little bit of a hole underneath and then these sticks are all just heading in there so when those sticks start burning down we'll just keep feeding them in you don't have to touch the wire obviously that wire is where the crabs are going to sit on two big dirty mud crabs are going to be.
Sitting on there in a minute we're going to let that flame dissipate a little bit get a bit of a CO going on but that is what it's looking like it's looking pretty good two big monstrous crabs going straight on I'm just going to Chuck them on this back corner for now cuz it's too hot in.
The middle always go shell down first like that like that that is ideal oh man these are going to be good let's go and have a look at these crabs it's been exactly 6 minutes they've been on the back side wow they look pretty good they look very good look at those.
Big boys man very very happy with that flip them over oh it's perfect it's actually perfect slow cooking on the fire oh wow we've nailed it ah all right another 3 minutes on that side I'm going to pull him off look at him boy that looks incredible doesn't.
It job done looks like the crabs are pretty much finished you you can see how the liquid has stopped bubbling out of their Knuckles which means there's no liquid left in the crab they should be cooked to Perfection so as you see that bubbles coming out of their Knuckles means they're basically done when you're cooking on a fire so just keep an eye on.
That keep remember that they should be perfect lollipops right now all right this is what I've done we've got the crabs in the esy with a couple of Frozen bottles of water so we're just going to keep them in there hopefully they cool down up here we've taken the smallest claw because I just need a nibble eh I'm going to have a nibble on that right now.
See what's inside a little bit of a lollipop come on come on oh look at that little bit of a lollipop going on here yeah boy beautiful crab mate oh my goodness man yeah oh if I could do these right now I would but I don't want to ruin it.
With the Flies wow nothing baits that taste oh dude hectic out here right here's the plan we're moving we're on the road got the crabs in the back of the car the crabs are in anesi as you guys seen on ice so they're going to be.
Beautifully cooked chilled monster mud crabs and um I've had a little bit of a shower myself had a little bit of a scrub first one in 4 days got all the mud off me got all the fly sheet off me feels good little bit of a bush shower and now what I'm doing is we're punching up to a creek we're just going exploring basically what I'm doing is I'm just.
Trying to kill time because I want to cook a hell feed but then you just can't cook out there with those flies like is it's actually impossible I don't want to sit up in the troopy and be like n so I'm just going to starve myself until the sun sets and then we'll cook a hell feed but what we're doing now we're going to check out a new Creek don't.
Know if you can get in there but we're going to have a look it's about an hour and a half away from here so we'll be there just on Sunset should be good here it is we're on the track to the creek I've never been to.
Before come on trp dog give it to her baby oh yeah we're in some seriously soft sand but look at this bro this is killer oh yeah wow oh look at the mullet down there might have to let me tires down for this little section but this looks incredible we're sleeping here hundreds of mullet right there getting the throw.
Net out let's go doggies have a look at this spot with the troopy set up tiny on the back had to bag the tires it's a little bit not too soft just the tiny was dragging me down but tires have being bagged before we do anything right now I got my fly suit back on because the fers are so.
Hectic out here I don't know if you guys can see them or not but bro they're they're hectic I'm going to get a thrown real quickly run down the bank here see if we can get some live bait I'm going to throw a live bait out here just before that sun sets and then we'll start cooking the feet I can see a fair bit of bait just right there it's going.
To be a bit hard in the wind but we're getting it done all right we got a couple it was not a good throw just goes to show how many fish are in there cuz we've got quite a few here nice little lollipops look it's enough to get.
Started look at these little lollipops look at this one this is a beautiful mullet that's what you want for bait perfect well we got a couple of beautiful mullet in that throw but just going to give it one more f flick see cuz I'm going to be spending.
All night fishing tonight so uh I'll have another flick see how we go all right we have got bait for absolute days that's beautiful man look at this about 50 fish in here yes that's good all right there are so many mullet in the here right let's get into the.
Water look at that that is a live mullet it's going to go out to get smashed well there's no way in the world we be able to put be to be able to cook right now the fers are worse than last episode they are hectic here right now all right I'm going to go send that mullet out there once that sun sets it's time to cook this hella.
Feed like do you do you actually believe what's going on right now it's actually time to cook a feed you're kidding there is no FES right now couple of sand flies but there is not one fly as soon as that sun goes down flies are gone this is what we got here my doggy what was that like every every time I hear a noise I think that fishing Rod's going off we've.
We've already got one shark on that Rod big dirty claws boom boom big dirty crab another big dirty CLW big dirty crab what we're going to be doing right now is we're just going to be taking the meat out of all these crabs we're not actually going to be eating them well we are but not right now so oh man they got some solid shells on.
Them there beautiful lollipop see that's what you do when you cook them on a fire and make sure the Bubbles as soon as the bubbles stop take them off you get beautiful lollipops like that so what I'm going to do is I'm going to fill this container up with all the crab meat try not to eat it it's going to be bloody hard but this is what I'm going.
To be doing all that meat every little bit of meat is going in this container I'm going to eat that bit oh man but what we're going to make is going to be that good come on lollipop look at that thing cooked to Perfection massive massive bit of crab meat right there that going straight in.
