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 22: Cobourg Coastal Camp

Airs 26th August 2017

We travel to the most remote corner of Arnhem Land on the edge of the Arafura Sea, and discover Cobourg Coastal Camp. It’s a safari style camping lodge for no more than 16 adventurous guests, where your closest neighbour is the local Salt Water Crocodile. And where the fishing starts with a fast and furious GT, goes on to a monster of a Jewie, and reaches a colourful climax with the magnificent Queensland Cod. And we catch more than one of these rare and protected beauties! Down south, the fast and furious pace goes on with Tuna and Mackerel, and our chef Paul bags himself a Flathead – which he promptly barbecues to perfection.

The Langa Langa river south of Baia Lodge in PNG was lined either side by palm trees. The water was tannin colour but the backdrop was stunning as we made our way up to the best fishing spots.

TODAYS EPISODE AT 4:30PM on Channel 10 & ONE:

Vanuatu Trees and Fishes

We’re back in Vanuatu, staying at Trees and Fishes Private Retreat, fishing with the experienced crew at Ocean Blue charters, and does their experience show! Fishing the FADs for fast moving fun, we hook up to Mahi Mahi all over the boat, as everyone on board gets in on the act. And enjoying languidly luxurious nights at the beachfront resort in between, we leave Vanuatu on a bold blue note with a hard fighting Blue Marlin.
This week’s action is just as big back home in Oz, where fishing out from Keppel Bay Marina on Queensland’s Capricorn Coast produces the mother of all Nannygai. And we finish off catching Bream, which our chef Paul cooks up in a quirky new dish: barbecued with soda water!

Triple hookups on Trevally were the norm in a hot afternoon bite. This one coffed up a large mullet once onboard. There is plenty of food options in these big PNG rivers.

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.
