Catch Escape with ET Series 16 Saturdays at 5pm on ONE

Series 16 Episode 06 :: Saturday on ONE at 5pm

Ballina comes alive with the huge crowds of fishos and their families attracted by the North Coast Fishing Bonanza and ET gets right in among it, fishing from the Richmond River to way out at the 80 metre depth mark on the continental shelf. The Bonanza is one of the most popular fishing comps on the calendar, supported for many years by one of our favourite sponsors Gamakatsu. So it's no surprise that ET took part in this year's event in company with Michael, Dominic and Zac from Gamakatsu headquarters. Aboard their corporate boat the boys go reef fishing with Snapper high on their agenda. They start close in and shallow, pulling in pinkies left right and centre, then move out to the 70 metre depth line where they add Pearl Perch to their already impressive Snapper haul. Then the action goes up another cog at 80 metres, with Bonito bringing speedy excitement and an Amberjack taking top spot as the biggest catch of the day.
