Fishing Destinations & Fishing Report:

Fishing Report:

  1. Day Trips to Finniss River now available @ $380 per person per day. We are well known for landing for our Day Trippers tremendous Big Barra Slappers. 

  2. Remember You Never Know If You Never Go!!

  3. One Day Barra & Bluewater Harbour Fishing Trips. With the employment of experienced guide Paul Salotti as one of our fishing guides this year & on. Paul fished Darwin Harbour for 6 years as a fishing guide previously; so we have also extended our fishing locations to cover Darwin Harbour as an added option for those clients that cannot afford the extra $$$ and time to travel to Shady Camp and or Adelaide River. Still a good option for Half Day and shortened full day trips for clients to complete. Call the Office & Enquire if it is not on the Seat Availability.
