NBN « Wed Oct 22, 2014 10:57 am » KB: best advice I can give is head out with a guide for at least 1 -2 days, then go solo if you want. Will make a big difference to your results and safety if unfamiliar with NT.
mnemonix « Wed Oct 22, 2014 10:43 am » Sorry, can't help you with Darwin tips lately.
mnemonix « Wed Oct 22, 2014 10:43 am » With a name like Karuah Bob, I'd suggest heading across the bay to dalbora at this time of year and fishing for bream
karuahbob « Wed Oct 22, 2014 9:36 am » Cheers mate, any tips on where to head. We are into catch and release
mnemonix « Wed Oct 22, 2014 9:06 am » Call Peter Green from Hooked up Boat Hire. 0417 811 402. Great service and will Launch Retrieve for you.

Jprbeard « Tue Oct 21, 2014 9:37 am » nice work sweaty
nomad « Tue Oct 21, 2014 8:12 am » i reckon they released the undersize ones. I had mates in the NSW water police. they used to pull bodies out of the water all the time. AND they were normally covered with prawns.
Quinntreximon « Mon Oct 20, 2014 10:58 pm » Nomad, wot are cameras for with a date n time see you at the cook up.
Sweaty « Mon Oct 20, 2014 8:37 pm » Day 1 resulted in 14 Barra (Best 88cm), 15 Mangrove (best 42cm) Jack, few blue salmon, cod, queen fish , snapper and 1 solo crab and heaps of bream in the pots haha

mippa « Mon Oct 20, 2014 4:42 pm » just read that. good job. good on people for dobbing them in
dannett « Mon Oct 20, 2014 3:37 pm » The base maps are really terrible. That said 3/4 of us went to the mouth of Sampan under the cover of darkness at the start of this year.
Melv « Mon Oct 20, 2014 3:05 pm » Glad to hear they're all OK but pitch black, no lights and 60kph?? Guess they won't be doing that again.........
wally gator « Mon Oct 20, 2014 2:54 pm » yeah all ok but pretty bashed about , bl..dy lucky tho
Agent86 « Mon Oct 20, 2014 2:51 pm » hope they are all ok, sometimes the maps on the plotters arent real accurate, have to be careful in rivers especially.
wally gator « Mon Oct 20, 2014 2:32 pm » yep pitch black no lights following gps, they hit the bank not a sand bar @ 60 kph, brand new boat, and yes i know them...
George « Mon Oct 20, 2014 9:42 am » No sure if old mate is on the FFF or not, but he hit the bank at night, we are assuming he was following the chart plotter. All went to hospital, dirver face planted intot he console, he's pretty messed up. They are all very lucky

dannett « Sat Oct 18, 2014 5:06 pm » Steve29 Luck. Lots of it. Try small metal slices worked quick for queenies. Small poppers. Small soft plastics and hard bodies. Livies. Squid, prawn and pilchard baits.
hobbit « Sat Oct 18, 2014 4:36 pm » Can anyone tell me if there will be enough water at buff creek still at 6am if high tide is 240am?

jonr « Fri Oct 17, 2014 11:28 pm » Anyone know what's the story behind the little yellow boat that was washed up at the mouth of kings creek this morning? Looks like it could have been a tenda - a few young blokes in a 12 foot tinny towed it off about lunch time.
Plate Size « Fri Oct 17, 2014 11:04 pm » welcome to the fff furom @Shimano101. goodluck too fishing Darwin. ba carefull of crock and jellyfish though.
Plate Size « Fri Oct 17, 2014 11:01 pm » Thank you blackjew. i see good fishing here in Darwin.
blackjew « Fri Oct 17, 2014 10:45 pm » gday shgimano101 ,steve29 welcome to the forum ,theres heaps of gret info on here just look back through the posts ,lots of sectet spots are hiding
Plate Size « Fri Oct 17, 2014 9:37 pm » steve29, that area there , below the pool produces queen fish on spring tides, when it coincides at sunrise. lures, poppers or chrome twisters. the current wil drive your live bait back to you, or 3 oclock mark every few minutes. so, lures is best around that area. my 1 cent.
