Fishing for Barra in the NT

We are fortunate to live in a country with such diverse and unique landscapes. From the beautiful beaches of the east coast to the equally breathtaking backdrops of the west. Even the colours of the red centre and our southern coast beggars belief.

Add to that list the untamed wilds of the Northern Territory.

The definition of untouched, natural beauty, the Northern Territory offers a lot to tourists, venturing there to explore. But for the fishos it means one thing…BIG barramundi.

The NT runoff is a phenomenon that brings many an avid angler north. As the wet season subsides, all that freshwater slowly starts making its way off the flood plains and into the hundreds of kilometres of rivers and creeks around the region. This fires up all the big barra and encourages them to travel and feed.

The wet season is shaping up to be a cracker this year, which means the runoff should be pretty good as well. Make plans to head up to the NT next year and chase your own prize barramundi. The BCF in Darwin should be your first port of call. They know exactly how to target these awesome fish, and can sort you out with all the tips, tricks and gear.
