Sooty Grunters is an Australian nickname for the Black Bream and in this episode Paul is in for a real treat, he's being taken heli fishing by Josh Liddle of Hinchinbrook Adventures, and they are travelling 100kms into remote North Queensland, where the Herbert River cuts through rocky mountains creating some amazing scenery. They are targeting the Sooties that are here in numbers, sight casting lures. The Black Bream can grow to over 50cms so anything approaching that is a good fish. They are surprised to see a Barramundi so far from the sea and apparently very happy in the crystal clear mountain water. Josh takes the chopper up into even more rugged terrain, where Paul is able to cast into the splash pool of a waterfall and still hook a Sooty.
