Hi,

Just watched a video/dvd by Vic Hislop. My guess would be it was done in the 80's but pretty hard to tell. He fitted a caravan on top of a 4x4 truck and turned a flat bottom barge into a high powered house boat. He had two 50hp outboards on a flat bottom barge/boat built a room at the rear and headed up into the Gulf. Only thing I could see to date it by was the depth sounder, a Navman fishfinder 400 and his partner/wife/friend wore a high cut bikini. The bikini was one of those very high cut versions and the fuller kind compared to.

Anyone seen it? Know the era? Know were it was taken?

Thanks

Thanks, have checked out that site before posting and didn't answer any of my questions. I think the remote filming is more of what he does now.

Im guessing if you werent able to check the copyright year on the cover or disc, then it is a pirated DVD!
Question you forgot to ask is " Is Vic Hislop a d++k head?"
Answer, yes he is. His answer to everything is/was-kill all the sharks in the area, and everywhere else also.
In which case it is a GOOD thing to pirate his movies!

Vic actually helped the profesional fisherman, working the lacal area..
Sharks are very territorial, and by catching the bigger ones, that allowed, more sharks into the area, thus eating more seals, who were depleting the fish stocks..
He did not want to kill all the sharks in the area, just keep some of the numbers in check.
But the "Greenies" hounded the man.

Cheers

The main predator of seals is the great white and recent satelite tagging has shown that they are certainly not territorial swimming in quick time from albany to exmouth and i think one went to south africa.

Sounds like pub talk.
This story would have come from the fisherman who always carried a rifle for shooting seals and dolphins

I met Vic Hislop in Ceduna in the early 80s. He visited and caught two Great Whites.

Having met him I entirely agree with your comments. He is a Richard Cranium.

Fisho, is that the same clown who had a shark display in Harvey Bay years ago. This clown had a morbid hatred of sharks, I wasn't impressed at all.

thats him.
Having been a professional fisherman, I still find his ideas to be 40 years behind the times.

Cant say I have paid attention to him in the last 10 years, maybe he is "born again greeny"?

Bucky (VIC) - does the "VIC" stand for the state or are you really "VIC" Hislop-sounds like you are reading off his handwriting!

Be nice fellars, I too have meet Vic, at San Ramo, and I used to work with his dad.
I know he gets a bit excited, from time to time, but he has the balls to go after these things, a lot more than I could ever do.

Cheers
Bucky

been on his website and now im convinced his a loon. i reeeely like his story where he went to the aid of a minke whale that had trapped itself in a lagoon for over 2 months and was about to meet some natural order when he was man enough to blow away most of the adult tiger sharks from the region that had congregated with a 30-06 and 12g powerheads.
The wahele was found dead a couple of hours later - but hey at least he got cheered for having fun .
dunno where he was a couple of years back when a humpback became tangled in cray pots in the bight and was surrounded by GW waiting for it to tire.

He was and always will be an Alf Dean Wanabe but whereas Alf used the rod and reel and pitted himself against the oceons largest Vic was just a bloodsport killer by any means
