We’re sliding right into the neap tides this weekend, and this will provide the ideal opportunity to target bluewater fish.
Sunday is the pick simply because the offshore wind and wave forecasts are for milder conditions than on Saturday.
The tidal range will also be less on Sunday and both the daytime high and low tides are at respectable hours.
There are a huge number of blue-water options, including Kakadu; that is, as long as you’re prepared to belt down the South Alligator River to the... (more)

I find it difficult not to buy into the discussion on whether Darwin should have its own iconic “Big Thing” and, if so, what that should be.
To be frank, I’ve always thought we should have our own “Big Thing”, and you don’t have to be a quiz master to guess what I’m tipping.
I most definitely believe we should have a massive effigy of a barramundi in our CBD.
There are more than 150 “Big Things” around the country, but not a single one of them is... (more)

I’m in Cairns as you read this, fishing day trips with an old mate, Kim Andersen, at Copperlode Dam.
Copperlode is about 30 minutes out of Cairns, practically at the top of the nearest hinterland.

In what was widely discussed as the toughest Club Marine Insurance Barra Nationals ever, this great tournament is done and dusted for another year.
There was never any doubt that fishing would be incredibly challenging down the Daly last week, and some of the statistics certainly back that up: 28 of 71 teams didn’t catch a point-scoring barra and 155 of 213 anglers also scored donuts.
What was really apparent to me was that so much of the river was so shallow.

I can’t tell you how the Club Marine Insurance Barra Nationals is going because I’m down on the Daly River myself, hopefully catching fish.
However, even though the fishing has been tough down the Daly in terms of barra numbers, it hasn’t stopped some absolute stonkers from being caught.
The biggest so far is a great, big, fat 127cm barra which was caught straight after the Barra Classic.
Following an invitation from Paul Johnson, an old family friend, Townsville’s Kyle deVeth... (more)
