This week I have been filming on board with the crew of Wildcard at the Wessel Islands in East Arnhem Land  NT, for the second season of Seafood Escape. Chef Colin Barker from the Boat House Restaurant in Sydney joined me to find out how Spanish Mackerel are caught, prepared, and transported to his restaurant for us to enjoy.

I used to go fishing for these alot off the rocks.I just used a small hook and running sinker with abalone gut for bait and lots of burley: bread ,greenweed and sand mixture

Big net

We fished in a secret gutter off the rocks near Manyana NSW! My father swore by peeling the prawns we used for bait... we used a float with large beach rods.... they love some mushed up bread for burleigh too (he said to throw it in a gutter if possible... after the set of waves have hit the rocks and made the white wash... thats when we would through the line in... they love the white wash)

Two hooks about ten cm. Apart. You bait the top one only. Feel the little suck bite, jerk line, bottom hook snags them in the belly. That stops them farting in church....

Nice one mate

Fished for drummer off fingal headlands for school sports 👍🏻

Niiiice

Look for areas of sand and weed. This is where whiting love to forage as they can hide, as well as catch yabbies, prawns, and worms. #HobieKayak

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.
