Paul kicks of the series in style with a feature length episode from Fiji on the beautiful private island of Namuto where the fishing is fantastic all year round. To start off, Paul heads offshore with wife, Christy and son Jet trolling live baits including Shad, Rainbow Runner and Flying fish and it isn't long before they hook into some big Spanish Mackerel followed by a hard fighting Oceanic White Tip Shark for Paul. Day 2 and Paul and Jet head out again for a short lure fishing session while they are waiting for the tide to turn and Jet lands a huge Needlefish or Longtom as they are often known as. They then set about doing some deep dropping, fishing at 350M with baits and Paul is soon rewarded with a stunning Snake Mackerel, an incredible and truly prehistoric looking fish. Always keen to try new things, Paul also has an exciting  session on jet ski, where his guide Taylor stealthily navigates to the edge of a reef where there's plenty of bait fish activity before Paul starts throwing poppers and it isn't long before he gets a powerful Giant Trevally on which is shortly followed by a big Red Bass, another of the reef's main predators. In the last session of this episode, they head out offshore again looking for some bigger species and soon get a lovely Mahi Mahi before finding a big shoal of Yellowfin Tuna. This all action show just shows how incredible the fishing on the Fiji paradise that is Namuto Island truly is. To watch just login or register

iFish host Paul Worsteling  travels to St Helens on the east coast of Tasmania where he joins up with local expert Chloe Hammersley to go Mako Shark fishing. They head out to the edge of the shelf and whilst they are waiting for the Makos to show up get plenty of excitement from catching a few of the Bluefin Tuna swarming the area. It's not long before a large Mako is attracted to the the commotion and the tasty chum bait being dragged behind the boat. Paul is quick to get a fly out in front of its nose. Mako Sharks are one of the most acrobatic fish in the ocean and this one doesn't disappoint, providing some magnificent moments of airtime and because he is only using his lightweight fly gear Paul enjoys one hell of a fight. If you've never considered going Mako Shark fishing, this episode will change your mind! To watch just login or register

Paul and Jet are at one of Australia's most incredible natural sites, Horizontal Falls which is a saltwater waterfall created by the strong tides. This remote area of Australia in the Kimberley region is home to some spectacular angling possibilities as Paul and Jet find out as they catch fish literally 1 min after stepping off their helicopter on a flat. They are fishing a 'blue hole' which is formed when the tide falls back and leaves a bath shaped hole full of fish including Mangrove Jacks and Queenfish. With the water being so clear in this hole, Paul and Jet can literally pick out fish they want to catch and put their baits right on the fish's nose. This has to be the ultimate fishing hole so if you ever find yourself visiting Horizontal Falls be sure to pack your fishing gear! To watch, login or register

Something different this episode as Paul Worsteling heads to Wyangala Dam in the heart of New South Wales for some Carp fishing on the fly. Its pretty windy so after finding a sheltered bay, Paul and guide, Ken Smith patrol the shore and start stalking cruising carp. These European Carp aren't particularly welcome in Australia to say the least. Brought here in the 1850's they have infiltrated many river systems and can account for up to 70% of the biomass in some rivers and are therefore dramatically affecting stocks of native species. Both Common Carp and Mirror Carp reside here and sight fishing for them in shallow water is the preferred tactic, plus they put up quite a scrap on a fly rod. The Carp fishing at Wyangala Dam is great so if you live down under, make the most of it whilst these fish are still around as there are many efforts underway to rid the waterways of this invasive species.

Paul is fishing in Western Port a deepwater port around 60 km from Melbourne and he's meeting up with Instagrammers, the Bent Rod Squad in search of Yellowtail Kingfish. Its an early start as the guys first have to fill the livewell with some bait fish before heading out on to a sandbank to catch some squid. As they head further out to find Kingfish they notice some sea birds working the water and can't resist seeing what's there which is huge shoal of Australian Salmon. Its simply too good an opportunity to pass up so they start throwing stick baits into the frenzy and soon hook into some hard fighting salmon. Can they find a Kingfish or will the salmon prove too much of a distraction? As you'll see the fishing in Western Port is simply amazing. Just login or register to watch

Paul and Christy are in Flinders, just south of Melbourne, and taking a trip out for King George Whiting, one of Australia's favourite table fish. Making an early start, they first pick up some calamari for bait (and for dinner) before turning their attention to whiting as the tide starts to turn. En route to their favoured location, they spot some birds working the water and find a large shoal of Australian Salmon which is too good an opportunity to pass up. After finding a sheltered bay and putting down a burly bucket, Paul and Christy set about trying to catch some whiting but there's plenty of other species about and it takes them a while catching Silver Trevally and Flathead before a cracking King George Whiting shows up. The session just gets hotter and hotter with the rods going off constantly and a succession of species coming to the boat including a Horned Shark and a Gummy Shark. To watch just login or register

Watch Mr Mulloway Delivers where iFish host Paul Worsteling teams up with Wayne Annetts aka Mr Mulloway for a day's fishing on the Hawkesbury Estuary in NSW Australia. They are targeting Mulloway or Jewfish, named after their jewel like ear stones that were much prized. They are beautiful silver, scaly fish, growing up to 2m and over 40kg. Wayne has got his nickname because he certainly knows how to catch these fish, his personal best is 38kg and whilst Paul doesn't catch one quite that big, he still lands a couple of very nice examples. He rounds off the day by also catching a monster Flathead. Perfect. To watch Mr Mulloway Delivers now, just login or register

Watch Crater Lake Chinook Salmon, where Paul Worsteling travels to Lake Bullen Merri, VIC, Australia formed by two over lapping volcanoes and now home to some very nice Brown and Rainbow Trout as well as Chinook Salmon. Paul's fishing with lake regular Chris Pittman, and they start by trolling using down riggers to get their lures to the optimum depth, in the thermo-clime they can see on the sounder. This seems to work very nicely but they also try Chris's tip of using Pilchards as a dead bait, and Paul is amazed when this hooks him a Rainbow. Plenty of great tips on how to use all the gear to your best advantage and how to present a deadbait. To watch Crater Lake Chinook Salmon now, just login or register

Popper fishing for Giant Trevally has got to be one of the most exciting ways of spending a day in a boat, here host Paul Worsteling heads up to Yeppoon, the gateway to the Capricorn Coast and Great Barrier Reef, where he meets up with Ben Jones aka GT Buster. Ben's earned his nickname by overwhelming some huge Giant Trevally, a lot of them on camera, so after an early morning start its not long before the guys are into fish. When using poppers, all the action takes place on the surface and its easy to see why these fish have earned the reputation as one of the hardest fighting fish there is. They also try a bit of jigging for a host of species that can be found on the bottom, making sure they've got something to take home for dinner.
