The Great Escape – Walcott River
Ryan Thipthorp and Harry Baumann head deeper into the Walcott River in this episode of Fishing Western Australia to chase down all sorts of brackish water species. It’s a fishy morning as small fry boil around the boat, and Ryan and Harry quickly get into the action casting soft plastics around the edges. Among the Fingermark Bream and Jacks, Ryan spots a beast of an Estuary Cod and tries stalking with a top-water popper, leading to some nail-biting action. The crew finally drop some pots among the mangroves and try to take some mud crabs back to harbour for a cookout. With the luxury of the fully catered mothership ‘The Great Escape’ sitting out in the bay, it’s no wonder Ryan and Harry keep returning to the Kimberleys.
