About Darwin Barra Fishing Tours

Still managing the company today, he’s no stranger to the waters around Darwin and has fished extensively in Queensland, the Gulf Country and the Kimberley.

Thanks to early experience as a stockman, John has extensive bush skills and an impressive understanding of the country and its wildlife.

You can also discover the remote fishing camps known only to professional guides.

Barramundi fishing

Around 20 pounds is a common weight for the barramundi on the old scale, but due to the increasing management of fishery in the Northern Territory, barramundi of over 40 pounds aren’t actually that uncommon. Many beginners end up catching these massive fish their first try; check out our photo gallery for evidence!

Barramundi can typically be caught by trailing lures behind your boat or casting them into a surprisingly wide spectrum of locations, from tributaries and drains to wetlands and mangroves. Getting an instant pinch and wrestling a cartwheeling barramundi is no doubt one of the brightest fishing highlights.
