Travel down the 15Klm coast to the remote Finniss River & complete full day Barra fishing chasing the almighty Saltwater Barra. Threadfin Salmon, and Black Jewfish. First half hour of fishing is training and development preparing the clients for possibly their first Barra hook up and landing.

After many hook ups and landings at approx 5.00pm we head back to Dundee Boat Ramp, Clean and prepare boat for the next days fishing and move to Motel/Lodge for swim, relaxation, evening meal & overnight accommodation.

  • 2nd & 4th Day / Up approx 5.30am early breakfast, prepare boat for tractor launch and out early to get to the right spot to do that Barra fishing, or chasing and pulling up the freight train of the sea those metre-plus Black Jewfish, or pulling up 7-8Kg Golden Snappers.

Anth & Dani's Big Trip Anth & Dani "What an amazing trip, we had tried all types of fishing from rivers, deep channels, poppers, bait fishing, trolling and lure fishing. We were amazed at the variety of fish and beauty of the place. Special thanks to Allan and Heather for their hospitality, we highly recommend Darwin's Barra Base if you are coming to the Territory"
