When can we go?
What kind of fishing?
Light tackle sportfishing is very popular for the mackerel and tuna that feed along the coast during the dry season. Residential trevally and queenfish are often found in the same areas. These speedsters can certainly pull line and really put on a show.
Barramundi and salmon can be found feeding in the low tide drains, holding on snags and lurking over shallow mangrove lined flats. The harbours have good populations of both.
Bream, grunter and golden snapper can be thick on the reefy areas inside the creeks. They’re great for folks who just want to catch fish and get a feed together.
Large jewfish reside on the wrecks and deep reefs, along with cod, bluebone, snapper and the odd coral trout.
Why choose this area?
For those who don’t want the expense of travelling further afield they are a bit easier on the budget.
Exploring the local waters is also very interesting and unique to Darwin and surrounds.
Plus sight casting to barramundi and salmon over the coastal flats is a huge buzz!
The tour can be tailored to your needs, as can the price.
