We start out in Sydney Harbour trying to catch a fish for an unsuspecting angler, then undertake a scientific mission thanks to World Fish Migration Day, before finally heading to the USA on a whirlwind tour.
Nige catches up with Jason Medcalf and discovers the effects of flooding on local awoonga fish. There’s plenty of barramundi feeding action, before fishing along the flood route.
We run an experiment of the food types barramundi feed on in central Queensland, before exploring the role Fisheries plays in Victoria’s best fishing spots.
We head offshore to help an angler catch a bucket list fish: the snapper. Then, we take a trip back in time, as Nige heads out on his boat with only the previous generation of gear, in search of a feed of fish.
Nige heads out with Trevor Hawkins and fly fishes along 3 different trout rivers over 3 days.
We head from north to south with a scientific aim in mind; to study the behaviours of some of our favourite sport fish.
Heading north of the Cape York Penisula, we find some remote areas of the Great Barrier Reef, and sample the amazing fishing on offer. Along the journey we investigate why the reef is such an important Wonder-of-the-World; we also highlight some of its major threats.
We jump on a plane and head to the top of Australia in search of a secret remote fishing camp! Along the way we explore how the wet season cycle affects our offshore and river fish species, all the while tangling with some impressive fish.
Nige hunts down some offshore aggressors and helps one lucky angler catch a fish they’ve always dreamed of. The show then heads south to do it all again, attempting to fly fish out of a kayak as we chase wild bass with Shannon Kitchener.
Nige Webster heads to the Queensland tropics to catch 3 fish in 3 days as he chases some freshwater apex predators, and learns the importance they play in our waterways.
Nige Webster visits Lake Sampsonvale to help catch and gather data on the stocked bass in the lake. Then, Nige chases Australian snapper and explores their hunting habits and the behaviours of bait fish while discovering more about these awesome predatory fish.
