Our Remote Camp
Some fishing rules remain constant and perhaps the most reliable is “less anglers = more fish.” Join us at our remote Endyalgout Island fishing camp for a fishing experience and you will probably join the growing number of our customers who return again and again. Here its not uncommon for you to be the only boat on the sea. Mangroves, rock bars, reefs, deep holes, islands, channels, seclusion and a policy of sustainable fishing means that the fishing for all the species we have mentioned previously is without comparison here. We have a track record of big fish here in most species. Unless you have tunnel vision for the big barra we are famous for its not unusual to boat several different species each day.
A scenic 50 minute flight from Darwin along the coast and you will be greeted with the sight of a complex extensive mangrove system with islands and coral reefs scattered on the seaward side Your aircraft will land on one of these islands only 5 minutes from camp.
Situated on a shell grit beach under shady trees are several permanent tropical friendly tents. These are designed to catch the sea breezes and are fitted with comfortable bedding and fans that will ensure a good nights sleep after a hard days fishing and a meal of Barra and mud crabs. A welcome luxury is an ablution block with fresh water showers and flush toilets, if it were any better we would have to stop calling it a remote camp and just call it remote.
The camp has a large kitchen and dining area with fans, 240 volt power supply, ample fridges and freezers. Just because you are in the middle of no where doesn’t mean you have to miss out on a good feed. Mud Crabs that can cost $40 a serve in restaurants and Barra are always on offer. You will also be pleased with great BBQ meals and roast dinners. Make sure you get Stenny to whip up some of his famous beer battered Barra. Finish the day sitting around the dining table swapping yarns with a cold drink or two before crashing in your comfortable bed to rest before doing it all again the next day.
In the morning after a good breakfast which can comprise cereals, toast or a cooked meal you will fish until a lunch that usually comprises sandwiches made fresh aboard but can include treats like chilled mud crab (If you’ve left any from the last nights feast).
Usually Barramundi is the prime target and we consider this a big Barra hotspot but the blue water scene here has a fantastic variety of fishing options. Cast lures to feeding schools of Trevally and Queenfish. Threadfin salmon patrol mangrove channels and drains. Estuary cod and Groper lurk in holes and rock ledges to pounce on passing lure with savage strikes an bulldogging fights. Reefs in front of the islands can produce just about anything and often do. Golden snapper here grow big and mean, they way they eat lures we are not sure if they love them or hate them. Black Jewfish here are not uncommon on lures while trolling for barra. Regular fishing writer Phill Heitmann who had never taken a Jew by lure caught 4 in 4 trolls over one snag here. Read his review attached.
All our safari boats are 5.5 metre to 6 metres in length and run 4-stroke environmentally friendly outboards. The Boats are built to government regulations. Our professional guides are fully accredited with many years of experience fishing the tropical waterways of the Northern Territory and no one knows this area better.
