Alex's Fishing Report 1 September 2016

Some life has been breathed into the Top End fishing scene, and it’s happened both on inland freshwater and Darwin coastal waters.
Some great news is that Corroboree Lagoon is actually fishing quite well for quality barra.
Roger Sinclair has been spending some time plying the waters of this iconic lagoon, and has been catching fish on every trip.

One thing that the Top End Barra Series (TEBS) does whenever one of its six annual rounds is held on a Top End waterway is provide up-to-date information on the quality of fishing at the chosen location.

Winds offshore won’t be too bad – mainly easterlies around 15-20km/h – so trailer boats of 5m or longer should have no difficulties.
There are plenty of options for offshore fishing this weekend too.
Similar tides a fortnight ago produced good reef fish out wide at South Gutter... (more)

It was almost a surprise earlier-to-mid this week to have such strong winds, and it’s the reason why temperatures have finally dropped to more-normal dry season levels.
Mainly for the dry season so far, winds have not been a big issue for those heading offshore from Darwin.
And it’s heading that way again this weekend, with light winds predicted for both Saturday and Sunday.
It means you’ll be able to travel some distance in your typical 5m-plus trailer boat and hopefully get stuck... (more)
