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!
A note to Angling Adventures to say I had a great trip. The group was really good and the guides about perfect.
Hi Garry & Pip,
....Very Impressed with the whole journey. Thankyou and if you have any information on tiger fishing I would love to hear more.
The top end of Australia's Northern Territory has long been on the radar of keen sportfishermen.
A lure casters dreamland and a flyfishers Nirvana. The list of species an angler on a Top End Northern Territory fishing trip can encounter is indeed a long one.
Freshwater billabongs are the domain of Barramundi, Tarpon and the prehistoric Saratoga. The Saltwater rivers and estuaries are where things start to really get interesting. Here you can expect to encounter the fish, a top end fishing trip is all about. Threadfin Salmon, Mangrove Jack, Golden Snapper and of course Barramundi are for starters, just wait until the likes of Queenfish and Giant Trevally get in on the act.
No Northern Territory fishing trip would be complete without sampling the delights of the multitude of offshore reefs and islands on offer. Here you will encounter such bruisers as Spanish Mackeral, Black Jewfish and the bigger brothers of the Giant Trevally, Golden Snapper and Queenfish found in the estuaries.
There really are not the words to describe the fantastic fishing opportunities available in Australia's Nortern Territory. Please contact Angling Adventures and discuss your Top End Fishing Trip with our experienced staff.
D.N.A. Barra Fishing is a family owned and operated tourism business that has been operating in the Northern Territory since 1995. The Barramundi is probably the most sought after Australian species. Not only does D.N.A. fish the best areas but they are very successful in catching some of the biggest ones available!>MORE
This beautiful area of Arnhemland not only offers exceptional barramundi, the fishing for numerous other species is also sensational. This tour boasts private rights to use to a number of rivers and creeks as well as fish-rich islands and the most superb inland lagoons Northern Territory has to offer.>MORE
Situated on Melville Island, Northern Territory, a more comfortable lodge would be hard to imagine.
A few steps from your air-conditioned room to step up into your boat. Towed 2 minutes to the boat ramp(with guide onboard), fishing for the day, back to the boat ramp, drive straight onto the trailer, towed back to the lodge, hop out of the boat and a few steps to the room!
How easy is that....and no wet feet either!
The original "Barra Base Lodge" on Bathurst Island, Northern Territory would bring back many great memories to a lot of fishing people that visited there in the 1980's and 1990's. It has been closed since 1998.
As of March 2013 you will be able to relive those great times! Under the new name of "Bathurst Island Lodge", the Lodge will be in action again.
