Cyclone Carlos has the Top End on track for a record wet season, with nearly 3000ml of rain recorded by the beginning of March.

The rain provides ideal conditions for wildlife to flourish, and giant Barra grow fat on the abundant baitfish and other feedstocks.

This is where you can read first hand the adventures of those lucky enough to fish these waters, teeming with fish, crocodiles and birdlife.

Fishing in the Top End 2011

The 2011 Run Off season has started with a drenching from Cyclone Carlos which should produce some great Barra Fishing and now you can tell your fishing adventure here.

Simply follow the invitation prompts to share your adventures and you can upload up to four photos to show us all.
