Big Barramundi

Big barramundi caught in the Northern Territory in 2007 in the Mary River, Shady Camp and tidal creeks and coastal waters of the Top End.

Anyone who can't catch a decent barra doesn't know where to look!

These photos were all taken during the 2007 barramundi fishing season and we wait to see what 2008 will bring to Top End Fishers. If you have a good photo, add it to the 2008 competition and you could win a days fishing with Darwin's Barra Base and one of the top fishing guides in the Territory.

Maybe the best Barra caught anywhere in 2007.
At 140 cm, it takes the 2007 prize unless someone can produce better!
Another beauty - at 129cm we thought for a while this might top the 2007 scales.

This may have been the best "ladies choice" for the year, although the fish Chelle Torossi landed may have just been longer. ( we only measure to the nearest cm )

Sparky landed a geat fighter, coming in at 108cm. sparkys barramundi
Jim wasn't far behind with this 104cm barra trophy.
Mark landed a similar fish, also 104cm

With all the rain so far, this year looks like being a bumper year for fishing in the Top End. Tour guides are reporting heavy bookings, so don't delay in making plans and securing accommodation if you are heading towards the Territory this year.

Photos of 2009 Darwin fishing adventures are coming in now.
