Barramundi & Sportfishing

Trip Info


Everyday is a good day to go fishing. Aboard TSMY Swordfish you will experience catching a wide variety of species. Weather and fishing conditions permitting we could be trolling for Mackerel, GT, tuna and other pelagics or flicking the rivers looking for the dancing Barramundi or Threadfin salmon. Whatever the conditions we strive to have the most fishing hours possible. Reef species include red emperor, parrot fish, coral trout, golden snapper, tricky snapper and many more. Trips can be arranged to suit however because of the remote areas visited we recommend a min of 6 days. Usually we fish the neap tides with a min of 8 days. 10 day trips allow us to go into Joseph Bonaparte Gulf which is largely untouched. The river system is so large it provides a new area to fish for each day…...experience the outback wildlife and be croc wise. Pure Magic
