We won't book the tour unless we have been there!
Just to let you know that we had the most wonderful trip. My dad, who did not fish hard, caught about 50 fish, Tom 100-1110 and I caught 120-130, the total being about 280-290 for our boat. The size this year was staggering. We caught about 40 in the 90's, 2 at 99 and 18 over a metre. We had 4 over 120 with 132 the biggest and we lost a few massive fish. Please put us down for next year.
Johnny Boy here!
Firstly may I say that the trip you put together on Swordfish was very professional in every way. JOHNNY BOY (thats me), Marshall, Colin, Graham, Stephen, Brett, etc had a ball. Lots and lots of great fish, plenty of laughs, FANTASTIC food, and all the stories go on bigger and better than ever. Well done Glenn from all of us.
I'm sure we will be back (even if I have to catch the best fish again). The shirt I won was great!
Thanks again mate. Photos on the way.
A note to Angling Adventures to say I had a great trip. The group was really good and the guides about perfect.
Sure, Charlie is a hunting and fishing guide and lodge owner, but mostly he is a bush pilot, we had lots in common and got on great.
I had nothing but a pure floating line for the whole trip and succeeded with the trip aim of getting lots of Chums on poppers.
The Anchorage Historic Hotel was good advice, very central with a taxi rank.
You can tell I'm still buzzing with the wonder of Alaska!

The Best Barramundi Fishing Trips
Every angler should experience the thrill of hooking a Barramundi at least once in their lifetime.
Possibly Australia's most iconic sportfish, Barramundi will test both skill and tackle of experienced and novice angler alike. Whether encountered casting, trolling or fly fishing, few fish get an anglers adrenalin going like the mighty “Barra”. Barramundi are just about the perfect sport fish. A highly aggressive and opportunistic hunter, they can be taken anywhere from picturesque lilly fringed inland billabongs to river mouths and headlands. The Barramundi's signature surface strike or “boof” is a sound that will be etched on your memory forever not mention their magnificent aerial gyrations as they attempt to dislodge your lure.
Operating from the upper reaches of freshwater streams all the way to the sea, our Barramundi fishing trips can cater to your every need. From remote landbased lodges, to mother ship operations, Angling Adventures Barramundi fishing trips operate in the best locations available in the North of Australia and PNG. Due to the remote locations we operate in, there is the added bonus of experiencing the amazing pristine environment Australia's North has to offer.
