First non-suicidal fish for Gareth

(Photo right) Gareth stated that "I Never really caught a fish before that was not suicidal or by accident before."

Wonderful sights, such as a Dugong in the sea, 3 sea turtles and a sailfish sailing over the sea. Also saw 3 groups of bait balls with tuna swarming in feeding.

Gareth's comment;
"Trawling along river for a barra with the imminent contact , so regularly, very little time between strikes. The second day was exciting because of the regular strikes of cod and the enormous sizes."

Lorraine's Comment;
"Just loved any time we were on the water fishing or just motoring. Allan was a great teacher and I caught my biggest fish ever!!!!"

Lynda's Comment;
"I slept very well. I deserved it . I have never been fishing like this before. When you got a bite - you got a fish and Allan knew it all - How when and where not a moment was wasted."

Kieran's Comment:
"Specially came to Darwin to catch a barra - got 3 and kept one. Bonus extra was the 33lb Black jewfish. Full on trip very good."

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"
