Contact FishingEarth about this adventure 0447 789 777

Located on the northwest side of Groote Eylandt, ET’s Escape Sportsfishing Lodge is a paradise awaiting the independent angler or the corporate group looking for the perfect escape for a business planning and strategy week. This lodge offers world class fishing in diverse and contrasting habitats, from tidal coastal creeks to Mangrove lined estuaries and kilometers of coastline, islands and coral reefs catching everything from Sailfish, Spanish Mackerel, huge GT’s, Mangrove Jacks, Queenfish and of course Barramundi.

The team at FishingEarth have fished six of the seven continents and many of the beautiful oceans & seas surrounding these amazing land masses. And the number one lesson we have collectively learned from these many 1000’s of hours fishing is that often it is the people you are will that takes your fishing adventure from a good trip to a FishingEarth Fishing Adventure of a lifetime.

We want to match you with a location where you can relax so the ‘old world’ seems like a million miles away. And the only thing you need to worry about is… well we hope nothing to worry about apart from how are you going to turn that fish of a lifetime that has just smashed your lure or fly!!

As FishingEarth does not have to ‘just fill’ seats on boats no matter what the fishing conditions we pride ourselves on giving you an honest assessment of the tides and conditions. Most of us have limited windows to get your fishing adventure fix so we work on making it as stress free as possible and find you the best adventure for the dates you have available.

FishingEarth also understand that it’s not just about catching fish… Yes we understand it is a Fishing Adventure so the fishing opportunities have to be world class as do the guides and the equipment. We also want to make sure we give you the best options to be at the right lodge at the best times possible. The team at FishingEarth would like to welcome you to your Fishing Adventure of a lifetime at  Et’s Escape Sportfishing Lodge

Welcome to Et’s Escape Sportfishing Lodge

Located on the northwest side of Groote Eylandt, ET’s Escape Sportsfishing Lodge is a paradise awaiting the independent angler or the corporate group looking for the perfect escape for a business planning and strategy week. This lodge offers world class fishing in diverse and contrasting habitats, from tidal coastal creeks to Mangrove lined estuaries and kilometers of coastline, islands and coral reefs.

Groote Eylandt is the largest of the islands in the Gulf of Carpentaria, 630km from Darwin by air. Belonging to the Anindilyakwa people, the island is part of the Arnhemland Reserve and is rich with indigenous cultural.

The area is also rich in marine and wildlife, with rare and endangered species such as the northern quoll, bush tailed rabbit and several species of marine turtle.

When it comes to the sports fishing the variety of species is what dreams are made of, with Barramundi, Sailfish, Marlin, Black Jewfish, Queenfish, Giant Trevally, Mangrove Jack, Red Emperor, Cobia, Coral Trout, Longtail Tuna, Threadfin Salmon and Golden Snapper all in large numbers around this sportsfishing haven.

Barramundi fishing is certainly one of the more popular activities up here, and each year numerous metre plus fish are caught – particularly in the warmer waters between September and April. Their aerial acrobatics is what makes these fish such a trophy, and there are plenty of fishing hotspots to target this iconic species, including the Walker River as well as the coastal reef, bommies and rock bars of the adjacent mainland.

The reef fishing is also spectacular with numerous hotspots around Groote Eylandt that offer the chance to do battle with a variety of hard fighting speccies, including the beautiful Coral Trout, Red Emperor, Mackerel, Large Mouth Nannygai and a host of Trevally. One or two of the boated fish that make for a delicious meal will be kept for a feast back at the lodge that night. The rest will be returned in a healthy condition to fight another day in their natural habitat.

A typical day at the lodge starts when you wake to the breathtaking views of the Gulf, before making your way to the Resort Restaurant for breakfast. From there you’ll walk the short distance down to the jetty to meet your guide.

Dependent on the tides and time of year, you’ll explore the pristine waters of the Groote Eylandt Archipelago or the Arnhemland coastline where you’ll fish until your heart’s content, whilst spotting dugongs, dolphins and the infamous crocodile. Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea will all be provided, and there’s even the opportunity for a stop off at one of the many sandy beaches.

Haines Hunter Prowlers are the vessel of choice out here, providing maximum comfort , whilst allowing great manoeuvrability when fighting fish of your dreams! The 8 metre, laminated fibreglass Prowlers are powered by the Evinrude E-tec and are designed to get you out to where the fish are biting safely and with a minimum of fuss.
