3 PART SERIES: Back to the Mac (McArthur River)
PART 1 “Catching Mud Crabs with his Bare Hands”
In part 1 of the series I head “Back to The Mac.” The McArthur River. It’s a 1,000km drive from my house to the river, which is near Borroloola in the Gulf of Carpentaria. I catch up with my mates and we head out on the water for some fishing and mud crabbing.
Part 2 “Mud Crab Fever”
Part 2 is the longest episode of the series. We do some night fishing for Barramundi, then head to a remote coastal creek to check Ash’s crab pots. He has started mud crabbing professionally this year and shows me how it’s done.
Part 2 “Breakfast Before Barramundi (Ft. Amanda the Commander)”
After spending most of the trip so far out in the Gulf of Carpentaria, we spend my final day of fishing up a small creek and go to one of our favourite spots for some Barramundi fishing, with several double hookups.
