Barra Fishing Charters & Tours - Barramundi Fishing Darwin

Ready to tangle with Australia’s most iconic sport fish?

Barramundi are a special fish, a true icon of the Territory. Powerful, explosive and visually spectacular they are a prized catch. The saltwater coastal rivers at Dundee are a fisherman & photographer’s delight. Catch a barra, wrangle a mud crab, see some crocodiles in the wild and marvel at the magnificent bird life. This is the Territory experience at its finest!

Tides and Local Knowledge

Successful barra fishing is all about choosing the right tides. They are the punch clock of the river and dictate the ebb and flow of all life within its banks. When and where barra feed is completely intertwined within this cycle of life. Local knowledge is the key to identifying these feeding windows and with Dundee as our backyard we are well tuned to the tides. 

With rivers, creeks and rock bars to both the North and South of our base we are able to target barra in varied environments over a range of different tides throughout the year.

As a bonus, when the barra bite shuts down our bluewater grounds are just a short run to get the action going again. Barra and bluewater all in the one day

Barramundi fishing is a must do in Darwin. If you have one spare day in Darwin, spend it barramundi fishing with Anglers Choice Fishing Safaris.

Saltwater Barramundi Vs Freshwater Barramundi?

Barramundi can survive and thrive in both salt and fresh water. But oils aint oils. At Dundee, we target saltwater barra. For the most part, these are brilliant silver fish with bright yellow tales. They belt lures, fight hard and are far superior when it comes to the culinary stakes.  

Popular Darwin billabongs such as Corroboree Billabong are fresh water and not tidal. These fish tend to develop an unpleasant muddy taste, in contrast to the beautiful white fillets of a saltwater fish. Dundee barra average 60-80cm with the chance of bigger fish always on the cards.
Threadfin Salmon, Black Jew and of course the ever popular Mud Crab are also on the cards when fishing the rivers. While not carrying the reputation of barra, they are always a welcome addition.
