gday from melbourne

Post by sven » Tue Jul 02, 2013 6:36 pm

gday all, am heading up to Darwin for the first time in august to watch my daughter represent the mighty big V in the Australian schoolgirls footy championships & will stay on for a bit longer & hopefully have a bit of a look around while Im up there. As I said never been there before so really looking forward to it, been to the top of WA & Queensland a few times so if its anything like that Im gunna love it. pretty keen to get out for a fish while im there, hopefully get onto something a bit more solid than the usual fish we get down here. hopefully can get a few pointers from some of you locals to make up for my lack of fishing ability .

im from vic also

best bet is to go out on charter.otherwise you may waste what little time you have up there

the blokes on here who catch fish have some serious local knowlwdge and most have boats

If you have a spare day - self drive to Corroboreee Billabong and jump on a party baot (approx $200 for a full day and takes approx 15 people). Speak to Ruth and Mary River House Boats This is ideal if there are a few families. It is really beautiful and you can fish from the boat and the whole family can enjoy the day. Not a "charter" but certainly a nice way to spend a day out in the Top End. Cheers - Emma

thanks for your replies fellers, yeah figured a charter would be the go, any of you blokes recommend one ? not really interested in going out on a charter & catching a heap of fish (what am I gunna do with them ?) but to get a couple of decent fish would be great or a good feed (got some barra & threadfin salmon last time I was in northern WA & I reckon the threadies were much better eating). Mainly just wanna have a good look around, I realise theres heaps there & my time is short so no point in running around like a blue arsed fly trying to see everything but what do you blokes reckon is worth doing ? Im gunna hire a car but it probably wont be 4WD so I guess that limits me a bit. is there much in the way of land based fishing or is too dodgy with crocs & what about off piers ? lots of questions I realise but if some of you blokes could point me in the right direction it would be most appreciated.
