ET escapes to the Capricorn Coast to fish for his TV show

ET has made a stop at Keppel Bay ... and it's all been for the fish.

Retired rugby league player Andrew Ettingshausen (also nicknamed ET) has spent hours fishing off the Capricorn Coast as he films for his television show Escape with ET.

The rugby league legend made a stop at the Waterline Cafe at Keppel Bay Marina to meet and greet fans, and to answer a few questions.

ET said he and his film crew had been fishing around Port Clinton and said the entire Capricorn Coast region was very beautiful.

"I went to places here that I've never been before," Ettingshausen said during his stopover.
