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 15 OF ESCAPE FISHING WITH ET WILL AIR ON SATURDAY 1ST JULY ON NETWORK TEN & SOUTHERN CROSS AT 4.30PM & AGAIN ON SUNDAY 2ND JULY AT 10.30AM ON ONE DUE TO LIVE SPORT OVER THE COMING WEEKS. TUNE IN TO CATCH ALL THE ACTION.


Episode 15: Bermagui Open Boat Marlin

Airs 1st July 2017

You’ll feel like you’re watching The Old Man and the Sea as we show you what it’s like to catch a Marlin alone in an open boat many miles out in the ocean. The location is Bermagui and the single-handed fishing and boat handling action we’ve captured on camera is packed with excitement and drama that’s straight off a page of Hemingway! In more sheltered waters there’s a relaxing change of pace with Leatherjacket caught from a kayak. Up in tropical North Queensland it’s the season for saltwater Barra, and we catch colourful reefies as well. And chef Paul Breheny keeps the reef colour coming with Red Emperor and Ruby Red Grapefruit on a Beetroot Salad.

I presented legend @saia_feki Sosaia Feki his 100th match jumper prior to the Sharks Manly game tonight. Unfortunately the Sea Eagles got the jump on the boys but it was good to see Sosaia score a 4 pointer. Congrats also to the big man @wadegraham17 on his 150th game! What an achievement! 👍🏼

Couldn't they get you a seat up in the stand named after you ET?

Kellie Johnstone

ESCAPE FISHING WITH ET IS BACK NEXT SATURDAY! 

This powerful Black Marlin was hooked fishing off Bermagui. It jumped all over the place until after 40 minutes the 90 kilo fish was brought boat side. Great fun but exhausting, hooking, fighting and landing the fish single handed while trying to steer my Quintrex 570 Topender. @quintrexboating

Just before dark last night I was flicking a 60mm  Atomic vibe in 9 metres of water in Burraneer Bay on the Port Hacking and I hooked a beautiful juvenile Pennant Trevally. Just check out its long sickles. A bit of a surprise catch for these cooler southern waters. Gamakatsu

What an amazing catch, must have hitched a ride down on the warm currents or the Qld floods really pushed hard.

I pulled one nice Flathead on a 75mm vibe worked alongside the yacht beside me. Where there is one Flathead you can bet others will be in the same vicinity so fire lots of cast into the same zone.

With the swell over 2.5 metres coming over the Ballina Bar it was great to be able to head up and have a look at the new Marine Rescue Tower. This state of the art observation tower will help save lives. Marine Rescue do an amazing job to keep boaters safe.

This time a small Flathead hit a vibe worked deep in 10 metres of water. The trick was finding the bait. If the Tailor and Salmon were munching baitfish on the top then you could bet that Flathead were feeding on the left over pieces floating down to the bottom. My Garmin Sounder kept me in the strike zone for long lengths of time. I can put my large mixed bag of species down to having awesome marine electronics. Garmin Australia #TeamHobie

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.
