Hi Garry,
            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.

Hi Glenn,

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!

Nelson Bay, NSW

Top End Northern Territory Fishing Trips

A lure casters dreamland and a fly-fishers Nirvana.

The top end of the Northern Territory has long been on the radar of keen fishermen. With huge tidal rivers, inland billabongs and offshore reefs, it is a sport fishing hotspot. The list of species an angler on a sport fishing tour can encounter here, is indeed a long one. With Angling Adventures, we can help you book your dream trip and find the best fisheries in the Northern Territory.

A fly fishing oasis

NT is an unrivalled fishing destination in Australia. Home to many species including Barra and featuring a vast network of waterways, it provides many excellent fishing opportunities. Freshwater billabongs are the primary domain of barra, tarpon and the prehistoric saratoga. The ideal spot for fly fishing trips, top end billabongs are abundant all year round.

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 tour is all about. Threadfin salmon, mangrove jack, golden snapper and of course barra are for starters, just wait until the likes of queenfish and giant trevally get in on the act.

No sport or fly fishing trip in the Northern Territory 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. Guided tours in this area will provide you with the ultimate experience and adventure.

The Lodge of Dundee

The Lodge of Dundee can offer an unique fishing experience with world class fishing opportunities to a residing beachside lodgement that can only be found in the Northern Territory.


Darwin's North Australia Barra Fishing

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!


Arnhemland Barramundi Nature Lodge

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.


Viv's Sportfishing & Wilderness Safaris

Viv’s Sportfishing & Wilderness Safaris invite you to experience the magic of some of the best remote area fishing and sightseeing the Top End of Australia can offer.....must be the longest running Darwin Mothership fishing company!


Jarbu Lodge

Probably the lead in on costs for Top End Lodges. Very homely with the added luxury of a swimming pool to cool down in after a day in the sun.


Bullo River Station

Accessible most of the year around by a private charter flight from either Darwin or Kununurra, Bullo River Station is situated in the heart of the Eastern Kimberley Range.


Bamurru Plains

Bamurru Plains is located on the edge of the Mary River floodplains, just a short distance from the coast and the western boundary of Kakadu National Park.
Not only the closest location to the famous "Run off" Barra area, but accommodation in "Wild Bush Luxury".


Fishing at Melville Island Lodge & Johnson River Camp

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!




Bathurst Island Lodge

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.
