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 24: Cobourg to Sydney

Airs 9th September 2017

We wrap up this series with a big final episode that takes you on a trip between two extremes of Australian fishing experiences. From the isolation of one of Arnhem Land’s most remote corners to the crowds of Sydney Harbour, it’s a big finish contrast all the way. We start at the Top End’s Cobourg Coastal Camp, where the target is Queenfish. And the quantity and quality of Queens is enough to have us humming Bohemian Rhapsody – or should that be We Are The Champions? Next it’s big Reds from the Pacific, then Luderick from a kayak, and finally Sydney Harbour Kingfish with a cast of thousands on the water. And to really wrap it all up, chef Paul barbecues Atlantic Salmon in Turkish Bread!

Every drop of the paternoster rig saw large fish hooked and landed. If you love your jig and deep bait fishing for big fish species a day on the water with Bernie and crew on board Mahi Mai Charters at Coral Bay WA is a day you wont forget.

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.
