Dundee Beach Fishing Report
Latest fishing action from Darwin's fishing charter experts.
First Fishing Report for 2015
With the start to the wet season being right on time with a big monsoon and lots of rain from the 1st of January, things were shaping up well and the Top End rivers started to flood. Since January the rain has been pretty scarce and we missed out on any signifigant rainfall during February. Our first rond of fishing charters has commenced in mid March with a not so welcoming westerly wind blowing straight on shore, making launching boats and bluewater fishing a very unlikely prospect. The best alternative in the conditions was to launch smaller boats in the mouth of the Finniss River and fish for barra and mud crabs.
Barra fishing in the river has had varied results, we have caught a few fish in the run off creeks and had some mixed sucess trolling the snags. We have encountered a couple of really good barra only to be disconnected at the last minute. The barra fishing should continue to improve and hopefully we can a few meter barra on the board for clients soon.
We had a crew recently that braved the rough conditions seeking a bluewater fix, they encountered a few schools of queenfish and had a brief reef fishing session that produced three jewfish and a few goldies before the conditions caught up with them and called it a day before they got too sea sick.
If your looking for a Darwin fishing charter, we would love to show you some of the best fishing the Northern Territory has to offer.
