The Barramundi is arguably Australia's most famous fish and the Northern Territory equally arguably is the best place in Australia for someone to catch their first Barra. Anyone who has ever watched and felt a silver slab of Barra jump clear of the water with their lure hanging from it's mouth knows there is no fish like the Barramundi. Fish of 20 pounds on the old scale are common and due to the conservation and management of the Northern Territory fishery many trophy fish over 40 pounds are caught every year. Hooking a Big Barra is a top end experience like no other! For the people who have a day free and would love to catch a Barra these tours are for you.
From February to May, fish the South Alligator River, Shady Camp and Adelaide Rivers as Barra congregate in the annual feast of food from the recent wet season. June to November fish Corroboree Billabong, Hardy's Lagoon and Shady Camp (upstream). The birdlife around these water lily lined billabongs is spectacular and many people visit these just to see the scenery and wildlife, you will be doing it while presenting your lures to Barra, Saratoga, and Tarpon.
Salt water day trip options include Bynoe Harbour, Darwin Harbour and the Vernon Islands fishing for multiple species as well as the Barramundi. Bait or lure fishing can be accommodated.
You will be picked up from your accommodation in Darwin by air-conditioned 4WD at 5:30am and dropped off at approx 5.50pm in the evening.

There are sights that happen every day somewhere in the Territory that will stay with you forever. Sharks in rivers hundreds of kilometres from the sea, crocodiles stalking wading birds, wading birds stalking fish, flying foxes squabbling in their daytime roosts, feral pigs rooting around, dingoes, the odd remaining wild buffalo. At sea turtles pop up at the back of your boat, schools of tuna and other pelagic's churn the surface of the sea. All of this as well as the beauty of the country, it's history and it's people. You will come for the fishing but you will remember it all and wonder why you didn’t do it years ago.
