Hands up if you’ve never fished Buffalo Creek before.
I doubt there’s an angler in Darwin who hasn’t chucked a lure from the sand into a ch7urning incoming tide in Buffalo Creek.
It’s interesting that I haven’t heard much happening at Buffalo Creek this year.
It can’t be because no one has been chasing barra there?
Always at this steamy, build-up time of year, there is great fishing available at our handy northern suburbs mangrove waterway.

The reason is that only three BetEasy tagged barra have been caught this season whereas, in the three previous seasons, there were 10, 9 and 14 barra caught respectively, and most came in the first six weeks.
I asked MDF official tagger, Bill Sawynok, why he thought there were far fewer tagged barra caught so far this season.

There have been both positive and negative updates on the five Fish Aggregating Devices (FADs) which have been placed at Fenton Patches, North Gutter and wide of Dundee Beach.

In other words, they are doing their job of aggregating fish.
The negative news is that one of the Fenton Patches FADs has gone missing and the other FAD on Fenton has been... (more)
