Fishing World Magizine Scott Thomas from Fishing World was on the Darwins Barra Base boat to witness the fight first hand.

As Scott says "...the Top End truly is the home of the giant barramundi."
Adventure Angler Jarrod Day landed in Darwin on one of the coldest days on record and faced the challenge of Barramundi fishing in cool-water conditions.

Darwins Barra Base is a purpose built Guided Fishing Lodge with accommodation right in the heart of Darwin. It is also a fantastic Bed & Breakfast called Beales Bedfish & Breakfast, conveniently situated within  a couple of minutes of the International Airport and only 10 minutes from the city.

Nearby there are literally hundreds of great fishing spots, including the incredible saltwater arms of Shoal Bay, Bynoe and Darwin Harbours. The sensational bluewater fishing at the nearby Vernon Islands is world famous.

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"
