Read saltwater fishing articles on catching bluewater reef fish including the famous Jewfish, Snapper, Coral Trout, Red Emperor and bluewater pelagics; Tuna, Mackerel, Queenfish and Giant Trevally.
May to November is the Barramundi & Bluewater season when we fish the great coastlines of Dundee Beach and Bynoe Harbour, their external Islands and Reefs, and the famous Peron Islands.
It is also a time for fishing the saltwater tidal streams of the Finnis River catching the tremendous fighting, lure spitting, tail wagging Saltwater Barra.
|Saltwater and Reef Fishing in the Northern Territory.|
Species to be expected in the area alongside of Queenfish are the much sought after Spanish Mackerel, Golden and Giant Trevally and Barracuda with the odd Cod and Golden Snapper taking lures as well.
|Queenfish over a metre long are regularly being taken off headlands and reefs. These are fantastic sportfish, putting on hard sustained runs and acrobatic aerial displays in an attempt to free the lure.|
