    Father and Son-in-law Reeling in A Great Catch!

    Andrew and his father-in-law, John, accompanied us on a recent fishing charter at Dundee Beach and had a successful haul, reeling in several impressive fish including jewies, coral trout, snapper and barramundi.  

    No photos of barra fishing as the crew were too busy catching fish to take photos!

    First world problems!

  • Brian with big catch
    06/05/2024 - Emma Cartwright 0 Comments

    There are many elements that can affect barra fishing including rain, wind, temperature and tides.

    After two past unsuccessful trips to Darwin (not with Anglers Choice), Brian was desperate to catch a barra! He originally booked to join us at Dundee Beach to fish in March but the wind was playing havoc and there was no way we were risking a 3rd trip in harsh conditions. We both agreed we should postpone his fishing charter till April. 

    Fast forward 30 days and we pick up a very excited Brian from the Darwin airport. The pressure was on.  It was on Brian who felt he was jinxed and it was on us and Guide Josh to help Brians dreams come true.  Brian had also refused to eat barramundi until he landed one himself.  Fresh Barra was on the menu that night, was Brian going to starve?  That was the question on everyone’s lips.

    We are very PLEASED to announce that Brian has a full belly and joined the Barra Club with this very solid 90cm saltwater barra!!! He also landed some very respectable threadfin salmon around the 90cm mark.

    Did we mention that this was Birthday celebration? Happy Birthday Legend, you earned that beer!

    Anglers Choice Supporting Movember & Mens Mental Health

    Since 2003, Movember has funded more than 1,250 men’s health projects around the world, challenging the status quo, shaking up men’s health research and transforming the way health services reach and support men.

    Movember is one of our chosen charities and each year we donate a Darwin fishing package for a staff member or customer to raffle to raise funds for this worthy cause. This year our fishing guide Ian and some of his crazy generous mates ( rode jet skis from Newcastle to Harvey Bay (1200km) raising just over $30, 000 for the Movember Foundation.  Great effort team Moustacheski and we are proud to be a part of your achievements! The lucky raffle winners were Bill and Mel and they joined us at Dundee Beach last week to claim their fishing charter prize.  Mel was overall boat champion landing some very nice fish including some solid barramundi. #movember
