Fish the top 1/3 of runout or the incoming tide before it breaks over it. Don't forget to allow a bit of time behind our Darwin harbour tide times before it comes in.

Might get another 110 if you're lucky. :D

Try about 100-200m down river on the tight bend on the other side of the island where the 2 arms around it rejoin as one. Or further down at scrubby ck mouth area for the turn if you're keen enough.

Thanks for the info. Unfortunately we were unprepared. We planned to wait until the high but we didn't come ready for the mozzies but for sandflies instead. We ended up getting hammered by them and decided to call it. Well now I at least have a better understanding of the place and can be expected to better prepare next time

when we were there at the low we threw the castnet around in the pools all we managed to get were a couple of baby barra. do the bait push up with the tide or do i have to go to the effort of transporting livebait. we do use lures but prefer to have livies out while having a flick.
