"Allan, sorry it's taken me so long to post this, but enjoy as we did, thank you for the great day the old man and I had prior to my deploying. We will definitely be back again and then some more, the old man did say it was more enjoyable with the company and experience that was given, and we both appreciated it. Thanks again." Nick Heslin

This was Marja's maiden voyage to the Top End, on a Barra Fishing Safari, and it just goes to show that you can achieve anything if you really want to and you have the best guides to assist you.
You just can't keep a good and determined woman down!!
A breast cancer survivor, Marja was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 1994 and has recently had deep brain stimulation surgery - a new technology that is giving Parkie sufferers a new lease on life. She is a keen sportswoman having played cricket up until 2004 and plays competitive golf 3 times a week at her home club of Box Hill in Victoria.
When she landed the monster 119cm fish, she remarked to a roar of laughter from the crew, and clapping from many other recreational boats around them, "It did pull a bit!"
To Allan & Heather; Great Trip; great organising; thoroughly recommend to anyone. Hopefully see you next year. - Graeme Hollands.
Fishing writer Jarrod Day visited again to chase barramundi, sailfish & pelagics and sent us some great photos of his catches.
Read his Barramundi Fishing report to see why the NT is known for the wide variety of fishing avaiable.
Our Guides Have helped many people experience the thrill of landing a Metre Long barramundi over the past few years. See our record of catches here.
