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 18: Mini Mini Metrey Barra

Airs 29th July 2017

We’re back in Arnhem Land’s remote Mini Mini River with the DNA Barra Fishing crew for our second big week of Top End fishing adventure. There are plenty more fighting examples of the Territory’s most prized sport species, from Javelin Fish to trophy Trevally, and finally the hook-up we came all the way up here hoping for – a one metre six point five centimetre big Mother Barramundi which jumps and fights all the way to the boat! Down south we get up close and personal with Aussie Salmon and Flathead, which chef Paul Breheny barbecues wrapped in Pancetta, served with an Quinoa and Eggplant Caponata.

King George Whiting over 40cm are a quality catch. We caught a number of these fishing over ribbon weed beds in 10metres of water.The white squid jig is a Sephia Shimano jig but I caught the King George Whiting on a prawn bait on a Gamakatsu worm hook. 
I had a twin Paternoster rig with a Gamakatsu worm hook on each dropper and a small sinker on the bottom. The Shimano Sephia Egixile Squid Jig was attached to a snap swivel at the top of the rig just in case there were Squid about as well - South Australia.

A Red Mullet is a bycatch when chasing King George Whiting. These can be eaten as well and make great Snapper baits.

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.
