Trip Info


we would like to give you an update from our last season. With having a few poor wet seasons the fishing has been extremely hard and the beginning of this season was no exception. However towards the end of this year things improved, with some nice fish caught from the Moyle/Port Keats area. We had several over a metre, providing our anglers with new personal best scores.

We had one visit to Joseph Bonaparte Gulf and as this area is largely untouched the fishing is spectacular. Our anglers would have caught well in excess of a hundred Barramundi, not to mention the ones that got away.

Our 2016 season is already booked out from Feb - to beginning of May so if you are thinking of doing a tour with us for next year, now is the time to book. We have dates available from May - December. June - September there is some Barramundi fishing although this is the best time for Mackerel and Palagics. Reef fishing is good for these months also. Sept - Dec Barramundi, Snapper and reef fishing is at its best with some palagics and limited Mackerel.

We are looking forward to this next season and are predicting abit of a bumper year with conditions improving.

We wish you all a very merry Christmas and tight lines for the New Year.
