Has anyone fished at the Dudley Point lookout cliff and had success on good fish? I myself have had decent success as of late, catching a 45cm blue salmon and a 66cm spanish mackerel in the space of a week. Just interested to know how others are going and what techniques they use.

Well done bro! Keep fishing hard and you will be a land based guru in the true tradition of Darwin kids of old. I know a few blokes that grew up here doing the same thing and they are great fishermen now. Sure beats the internet!

Onya Young Gun :mrgreen: :applause: . It can be a great spot during the Dry season and I have caught a few decent Macks and Skinnies there . If the wind is in your favor try floating a live bait out under a balloon .

Good luck you've done better than me , my last 3 land based trips have been 0,0,0 :(

Excellent work there young gun good to see you getting into a few nice fish for 2018 already. As mentioned previously a baloon rigged livie will go OK off there on the odd occasion for some nice sized fish. But I've hooked a bit of unstoppable stuff up near the left point from the gun turrets too. Right on the turn of high tide to the start of the runout for pelagics goes off then 2.3m -1.5m lows for barra and a few solid jacks on hardbodies and SP in the cracks in the big red slabs and around the oyster shelves near what must be a WW2 gun emplacement heading in towards ludmilla creek mouth area to the right of the point ( looking out over the ocean ).

QUALITY Livies are the goods out there too if u can get 'em mate. well worth the effort to secure a few even in the dark with the aid of your dad throwing the net. You'll soon notice the difference between a pro top 10 % crew and a casual dangler (stuffing around in their tacklebox wasting the day for 1 bite )pretty quickly around the local spots... pay attention to the blokes getting a few and their rigs to get onto more fish than the average Joe. :mrgreen:

My dad's not a fisherman unfortunately, so will have to ask my mate who can use a castnet to come. Thanks!

Great work YG, that's a good landbased catch. Looks like you are the Dudley Point expert this year.

Great catches mate! You've done well to land a mac and a salmon, they can both put up a fight.
Check the rules regarding fishing at the East Point Aquatic Reserve:
https://nt.gov.au/marine/recreational-f ... -in-darwin
No fish under 30cm (i.e. bait fish) can be taken and from what I can tell you can't use cast nets there, it's rod/reel or handline only.
Agree with others though, live bait is the key.
Get your mate to catch some in his net for you elsewhere & bring them along.

Cheers

AB

YG, I bet with all the talc stone around that point you would find milk fish there later in the in dry season and build up months. Keep your eye out for schools of fish tailing around on the surface in calm conditions (usually feeding on an outgoing tide) that pay no attention to your lures, that will be milk fish.
