Help needed for - Billie locations, weather and tides

Post by JasonFaulkner » Sun Jun 21, 2015 10:28 pm

Hey all, I have been wondering a few things lately.

Firstly I've been wondering where everyone thinks are the best few bill fishing spots out of the Darwin (and wider Darwin region up to a few hundred km away). Personally sail city has been the best performer the last few years for me, but seen a few marlin free jumping at the Bathrust trench and Caught a few sails also out at Fenton patches.

Secondly, all of the sails I've caught/skippered have been at April and I've noticed that during April they do seem to be more prevelant but that may be due to the tides when I've gone out. (Looking for the best type of tides to go out on for Marlins and sails)

Thirdly, I have been wanting to plan a 3-4 day palegic/bill fishing trip away whenever possible later this year and am after information of when good weather is usually about for going out wide.

Any information would help, cheers.
