These barramundi fishing pictures were taken on trips through the Mary River, Shady camp and creeks and billabongs of the Top End.
Conditions in these river systems vary enormously with the seasons, from a flooded inland sea in the wet season to a series of connected trickles towards the end of the dry. Tidal influences are also strong, with tides of up to 8 metres. In these conditions, local knowledge plays an important part in finding good fish.
|Surprisingly large fish can be found in the small creeks that ebb and flow with the tide along the main rivers.|
|Another good barramundi, this time taken from a wider stretch of the river.|
|Some good fish caught on the morning tide displayed on this barramundi fishing boat.|
|Saratoga are native fish which put up a good fight and provide plenty of sport for anglers. They are a catch and release fish, not really suitable for the table.|
When you visit the Northern Territory make sure you allow time for a fishing trip. Apart from the terrific fishing, the scenery and wildlife are not to be missed.
