When the cool south-easterly winds blow and seas are calm, there is no better way to spend a few days than sight casting a cruising saltwater barra or threadfin salmon.
Perhaps you would prefer to tangle with the tenacious saratoga or a plump barra in a tranquil inland billabong. Get your pulse pumping when the spool of your light spin or fly rod screams as a blistering longtail tuna, queenfish or giant trevally heads for the hills.
Do the dance with a magnificent sailfish or slug it out with a 50lb black jew bulldozing its way towards a jagged reef with only you and your determination to stop it.
Or maybe a delicious feed of mud crab, golden snapper and coral trout is your style.
With a full belly and plenty of energy you could also try some high speed jigging for Spanish, grey and spotted mackerel on the bluewater.
These experiences of a lifetime are all at your fingertips when you book an extended dry season charter with Watty at Barefoot Fishing Safaris.
If you’re after a challenge then have a crack at the challenging Dundee trifecta – a feisty barra, marauding black jewfish and a sprinting sailfish all in just one day!
Dry season barra fishing darwin charters are tailored exclusively to your fishing goals. Locations will vary according to these goals and where the fish are biting but our most popular spots include Dundee Beach, Bynoe Harbour, Darwin Harbour, Coroboree Billabong, Hardies Lagoon, Shady Camp and many others.
