Best tides to fish Dundee

Post by Badwilly72 » Thu May 30, 2019 8:54 pm

Hi, will be coming to Darwin again in August. Will be fishing Dundee beach, I’m wanting to know what tides are best to fish? Will be fishing both river and offshore. I have fished the harbour before with success on big tides, lows of .08m up to 7.1m tides. Would big tides still work well around Dundee beach or slightly smaller tides?
Any info would be good as I’m travelling from Queensland, long way to go to fish the wrong tides :fishing:
Cheers Will. :cheers:

I’m pretty hopeless on the Barra, especially the Finniss river. Can’t go too wrong on the blue. I like the first 3 days of a building tide. Bit of run seems to keep the tuna etc balled up tighter. Still clean water.
I reckon you get better bites of the bigger tides, but smaller window of fishing.

Up to 6m run would be fine bad willy. ..

Heaps clearer water is more common on the tides coming after the neaps which is the go if using lures for macks or sailfish instead of bottom bashing. As for the currents off dundee they are pretty minute compared to the ones in the Adeliade river mouth and in almost all areas a small sinker about the size of your pinky will be fine on your paternoster rigs in water under 15 -20m. .

Good luck mate.
Get out there and in amongst it :)
