DISCOVERY CHANNEL – Saturdays from 7 August, 1.30pm

Hosted by former Aussie rugby league legend, Andrew ‘ET’ Ettingshausen, this series takes viewers fishing to some of the most exciting destinations in Australia including the Great Barrier Reef, where he chases tropical species, and the wild West Coast which is bursting with weird and wonderful critters. In this series, the South Alligator River lives up to its reputation, with ET hauling in some monster barra including a few back-breakers well over the magic metre mark. Then it’s down to serious business as ET competes in the prestigious Barra Classic competition. Teams from across Australia enter this invitation-only event and this year, ET and his team are vying for the top spot, hooking some high-flying barramundi on the Daly River.
