Barramundi Fishing Records

Barramundi Fishing Records achieved by Darwins Barra Base clients fishing the tidal creeks and seas of the Northern Territory.

Landing Metre Plus to 1.4m Barramundi beauties is a trait that Darwin's Barra Base has grown its name and pride from in the last 10 years.

I do admit during these run off periods all these larger beautiful females have been landed at Shady Camp, in Sampan or Tommy cut Creeks and or the coastal creeks to Chamber's Bay or Finke Bay.

Darwin's Barra Base prides itself in delivering to you an awesome experience when completing our Extended Barra Run Off Fishing Safaris during spring tides, and if the wind blows like it did for Charlie McCallief Savage Seas Adventures (as witnessed by his DVD production) tremendous Barramundi Fishing is had during these spring tides up the top of Tommy Cut Creek and Sampan Creek. So no matter what the tide or the weather during the Run-Off Barramundi Fishing season everyone has a fantastic time.

Look for a fishing schedule that will give you the best chance of landing one of these magnificent fish.
