5 Day Barra To Sailfish/Pelagic Bluewater Fishing Safari
Allan made Our trip to Darwin both enjoyable and successful. Every
species of fish we wanted to catch was caught and Allan knew exactly
where to get them and at what tide. We have been on many charters prior,
but have never been so happy with our trip. This was definitely a trip
of a Lifetime.
Thank you Darwin's Barra Base and Thank you Allan.
We had an excellent trip.
Guides Daniel and TJ provided a great
fishing experience in the Finniss River. Very good catch of Barra with a
top length of 97cm 28Lb Barra. Boats, motors and equipment were of
high quality and to our expectations.
