Welcome to

Escape Fishing with ET

Hosted by former rugby legend and fishing fanatic Andrew Ettingshausen, Series 18 of Escape Fishing with ET brings us the latest in Fishing, Camping, Boating & Four Wheel Driving from around Australia.


Episode 9: Broome Heli Fishing

Airs 29th April 2017

Andrew and Monique Ettingshausen are making the most of their stay at Ramada Eco Beach Resort, south of Broome on WA’s Kimberley coast. This week ET flies away from the beach directly in front of the resort’s breakfast terrace to go heli fishing with indigenous guide and legendary local charter skipper Kurt Williamson. Flying low over the coast, they find a unique saltwater billabong – a stretch of creek landlocked by the massive tide range – where they catch Cod and Barra right off the beach. Out on Kurt’s boat, Monique catches a colourful bevy of reefies while ET battles a true sea monster. He contrasts that with a Barra caught on fly from a kayak. And there’s also some mighty Tuna action!

The weather has been so calm we headed out past Jibbon Bombie to a depth of around 42 metres where we found a patch of Sand Flathead. At 30 metres there are tons of Leatherjacket so head out a bit wider if you want to catch some flathead.

The floodplain full of fresh water spreads across the plain. Billabongs that have been locked away are now open with millions of small baitfish pouring into the gutters and drains of rivers and creeks creating a seafood smorgasbord for Barra.

Clean fresh water floods out of the creeks into the main body of the Daly River. Fishing on the colour change is a great place to target Barra waiting for the bait to wash by.

TODAYS EPISODE 4:30pm on Channel 10.
Andrew Ettingshausen takes a long air trek almost 950 kilometres north of Cairns to remote Albany Island, just off the northern tip of Cape York Peninsula. Then he takes another 75 sea mile boat trek down the cape’s west coast to the even more remote Doughboy River, where he and his CY Charters crew set up camp. From here they’ll spend glorious days fishing almost untouched waters, and laidback nights with the day’s catch cooked by a 5 star French chef!  On the catching and cooking menu there’s a ton of tropical Tuna, plus Trevally, and a kaleidoscope of colourful reefies, including the well-named Bluebone Fish. And elsewhere in Queensland, ET’s still among the big reefies out wide from Keppel Bay.

All New Seafood Escape

With Andrew Ettingshausen

There’s more to great seafood than just what you see on your plate. Andrew “ET” Ettingshausen teams up with some of Australia’s toughest professional fishing crews and most creative chefs to reveal the whole journey from ocean depths to the heights of culinary delight.


Seafood Escapes is a six part series showing the action and adventure of how sustainable seafood is sourced from the seas and bays around Australia. It goes the extra step to show how that seafood becomes a part of our national cuisine.

In the manner of Gourmet Farmer and Surfing the Menu, Seafood Escapes gets down and dirty – and wet – working out where our food originally comes from, then follows it all the way to the plate in interesting workaday and trendy restaurant settings. And along the way, it takes viewers to some of the most scenic coastal communities ever seen on television.
