Live Aboard Run Off Barra Fishing

Just some of the benefits of a live aboard trip:-

- Less Travel, More Fishing
- Beat the crowds to those coastal feeder creeks
- Head back to the mother ship for lunch & some air-conditioning
- Fish the tide change in the evening when the other are heading home
- The 5 night/5 day trip means that you are hitting the water and fishing early am on day 1 of your trip, you don’t miss the morning tide on your first day.

Barra fishing traditionally can mean travelling long distances by land then once you’ve hit the water more travel is involved. A Live Aboard Barra Fishing Charter changes all of this. When you anchor a mother ship in the mouth of one of the Territories famous Barra fishing rivers, Shady Camp, travelling times are shortened considerably and new fishing options become possible.
