Conditions weren’t perfect when we headed out to sea last week for three days of hopefully bluewater fishing mayhem.
It was daybreak and the westerly winds were already gusting to more than 40kph, with waves frothing at more than a metre high.
Fortunately, we had a real weapon on our side: the 16m Wai Nawana which revels in adverse sea conditions.
The Wai Nawana is the pride of the fleet of four great Arafura Bluewater Charters boats operated by old mate Steve Compain.
Steve has been plying coastal... (more)

The Top End wet season arriving before Christmas is generally unlikely.
I can’t say for sure but it seems to me that we’ve had a pretty ordinary build-up to date.
I can gauge that just by the amount of times the power goes off out here at Howard Springs – it’s been pretty good this year, and that’s simply because of lack of storms.
Having said that, along comes a significant tropical low which not long ago was Cyclone Owen until it crossed over north Queensland and then... (more)

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.

Is barra fishing in Darwin Harbour tough at the moment, or is it just me?
I’ve spent three days over the last fortnight: two days in West Arm and one day in Little West Arm, and you could count the barra we caught each time on one hand.
What’s more, only one or two were legal size per fishing trip.
Admittedly, we tagged and released a barra in West Arm for Million Dollar Fish.
This was a purple “charity tag”, one of three I was given by BetEasy’s Brad Fanning.
These tags aren’t... (more)
