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. If you don't believe us check out our photo gallery. Many of the fish are attached to anglers who have never caught a barra before.
Barra can be caught by trolling lures behind the boats (a proven big fish technique) or cast to in a huge variety of locations from tributaries that drain floodwaters from the wetlands to mangroves, rock bars or oyster encrusted headlands or reefs. Casting lures into snags and having it engulfed in an arm jarring strike followed by a cartwheeling Barra is one of fishings all time highs. We know the locations, when to fish them and the lures to use. Let our experienced team guide you to great fishing amongst spectacular scenery and wild life in the most productive river and estuarine systems available, like the waters of Kakadu, the Mary River, Shady Camp, Daly River and even into remote restricted access lands.
Trips are available from 1 day to extended tours from 2 - 14 days.
