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 17: Mini Mini Arnhem Land

Airs 22nd July 2017

We travel deep into the remote western end of Arnhem Land in the first of a two part Top End fishing adventure. We’re guests of DNA Barra Fishing, spending a week aboard their spacious mother ship in the Mini Mini River system, where we head out on the hunt for a big Barramundi. On the first day out we catch a whole range of exciting Territory species, including a personal best ever Golden Snapper. And a subsequent outing provides a thumping Trevally. So will we have to wait for Part Two to catch an elusive Metrey? Elsewhere we get into Bream and Tailor, which chef Paul Breheny serves deliciously whole with a Salsa Verde and Barbecued Corn Salad.

This Leatherjacket had two side fins which is very unusual. You see new things all the time when out on the water. What a beautiful species!

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

You never know when a big fish will turn up. Large Snapper like to feed up in the shallows so long casts into the washes can produce great results.  #TeamHobie Tonic Eyewear NSW Maritime Its important to wear your Lifejacket on all crafts.

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.
