2nd what Jeffish said about the FFF book. Plus there are a few good mags with very helpful stories in them from time to time, like Northern Australia Fishing Annual, BBB and North Australia Fishing Mag. Even Tales from the Tinny ABC Radio Saturday 5-7am 105.7 is a good source of information at times. At least you will get a laugh if nothing else. Good luck with the fishing. It takes a long time to figure this place out

thanks fellas, main objective is to get out on the water,have some fun and get a few muddies and catch a few barra,my boys only think there is one fish in the water up here and i want to make sure i can put them onto a barra.
So you dont need you boat registered here is that correct?, just your trailer? and does your trailer have to go over the pits each year for road worthy?, my boat and trailer are both 98 models, not sure if that makes a difference or not.And i can have a few beers on the water without being breatho'd, is this right?.

Book should be in most news agents and tackle stores. It's full of maps and info. Correct, no boat rego. Not sure about trailer inspections

No rego, no licence, no breatho on the water (for now). Trailer will be inspected when you change over to NT rego. Not sure on the frequency after that but as no one seem to know it must not be that often.

thanks for the info Fish Tank,
ime used to having a .05 limit in place on the water coming from XXXXLAND so i wont be hittin the sauce to hard when ime out and about but it is good to know if i want to camp in my boat for the night that i can get stuck into a bottle of rum when ime anchored up some where safe and sound.

Welcome mate, re trailers.. pretty sure only braked trailers need regular inspections.
The rest as 'Fish tank' said.
The guys at MVR will fill you in. :mrgreen:
" YOUTH is a GIFT "
"AGE is an ART "
"Doesn't mean you get any smarter..just wrinkled and cracked".

"No angler watches nature in a passive way...He enters into its very existence." (John Bailey...Reflections on a Waters Edge)

"Govern a Family as you would catch a small fish....Very Gently." (Chinese Proverb)

"Only those become weary of angling who bring nothing to it but the idea of catching fish." (Rafael Sabatini...1857-1950)

I pray that one day God sends me a fish so big that, when talking of it...I have no reason to lie.
