DESCRIPTION

There are so many options out of Dundee that we tailor the trip to suit the best tides and sea conditions, hot bites or your personal preferences that can range from chasing barra to pelagics and sail fish, reef fishing for goldies, trout, and emperor or bottom bouncing for our legendary huge black jewfish. We are the local’s choice in an angler’s paradise, just ask around. We cater for hard core fisho’s and new comers looking for a once in a lifetime experience and we are more than happy to share our knowledge and skills to help you become a better angler.

Barramundi fishing

Between March and April the rain eases as the monsoon dissipates. The big rivers start to regain their shape as the floodplains drain into the sea. Known as the ‘run-off’, it is unquestionably the best time for Barramundi fishing. Why?

Firstly, the Barra that are still up on the floodplains or in the channels must move out before water levels become too low, and their exit points into the main river are the creek mouths.

Secondly, all other aquatic life must also make the same timely exit. The small fish, tadpoles and crustaceans that barramundi eat are funnelled down these creeks and barra hang around the creek mouths to ambush them. While in a feeding frenzy, they can be caught one after the other on artificial hard-bodied lures and lead-head soft plastic lures that resemble the baitfish they are feeding on.

Bluewater fishing 

March and April are also great months for bluewater fishing across the Top End. With the strong northerly winds of the wet season finished, and the easterlies of the dry season yet to start, calm seas often prevail.

Both sport and reef fish are active in the warm bluewater at this time of year. They too benefit from all the food being flushed down the rivers and out to sea. Pelagic species like Queenfish and Giant Trevally (GT’s) as well as reef fish like golden snapper and black jewfish are easily targeted. Out slightly wider species such as Coral Trout and Red Emperor are also highly active in the warm still water. Wide of Dundee there are big schools of tuna often seen surface feeding on large bait balls, and Dundee also has a great run of sailfish at this time of year. Sailfish are considered the “holy grail” of bluewater sportfish in the Top End.

Our Boats 

Our 7m and 7.7m sport fishing boats are in survey to fish with six clients plus guide but we prefer to fish with a maximum of four clients on each boat. 

Accommodation 

Accommodation is available  at Dundee which comes highly recommended from past clients. 

Meals 

Meals are included in the price of extended charters. We always join our crew for dinner and put on a big fish and mud crab feast for a night or two at the beach house.
