Arnhemland lodge kicks off season with 1000 barra

FOLLOWING one of the best wet seasons in the Northern Territory for several years, visitors to the Top End have been experiencing excellent run-off fishing in recent weeks.

The Arnhemland Barramundi Nature Lodge reports its season has kicked off with a bang, with nine anglers in four days reportedly landing more than 1000 barra to 101cm. One boat also accounted for a very impressive 152 barra in one day.

Michael McClusky was part of the first group to the Barra Lodge this year and had this to say:

“This was our 10th trip and it was absolutely great for the whole four days. The fishing was sensational, the chef was sensational and the accommodation great as always. Honestly, the guides work their arses off for you. Our four in two boats caught several hundred barra, and they were quality fish too – very few rats amongst them, and they were good fit fish – lots in the 80s.

“We spent the last day out on the bluewater and got smashed by big Spanish mackerel. We caught macs, queenies, black jew, golden snapper, mangrove jack, big GTs … and the sharks tried to eat the lot.”
