Tailor Your Experience All guests have the opportunity to book tailored sport fishing tours, trophy hunting tours, cultural tours and birding packages based on specific interests. “Guides are local and know their area very well. The reef is a stone’s throw from the camp and even comes right up into the estuaries. We caught barra and coral trout in one spot “amazing”. Turtles and dugong found throughout the bay, pigs, and banteng within walking distance from the camp. The fish and wild game was in abundance. I haven’t found a place like this anywhere else in Australia. I rate it as good as my African Safaris.
For those looking for that something different to typical barra lodge location and price, this is the perfect spot.
Barramundi, The Hollywood of Australian sportfish the Barramundi goes from being a great sports fish to one of the best once it gets into the 80cm range. Arnhemland has some of the best barramundi fishing on this earth and the Arnhemland Coastal Camp is perfectly located to take advantage of this barra fishing.
Mangrove Jack, how exciting is it when you get smashed by a jack as it heads back into its snag. Just think how good chasing Jacks on the reef!
Black Jewfish, Pound for pound Black Jewfish smash just about any fishing out of the river!
Queenfish, the Cirque du Soleil performer of the sports fishing world.
Threadfin Salmon, nothing like their northern hemisphere namesake these fish are aggressive and fish as hard as any tropical superstar.
Fingermark, much like their cousin the mangrove jack
GT (Giant Trevally), GT are also been referred to as being the gangsters of the reef. No matter if traveling in a group or individually they are on a mission and it is the mission of feeding as well as smashing the spirits of any accomplished sports fisho. recently encountered some feeding fish working the edge of a drop offAndIn true GT style50 minutes laterThe angular released the fish and then put the rod in the rod rack sat down for a rest. No person ever tangled with the 40+ kilogram fish and then immediately cast again.
Coral Trout, When it comes time to catching dinner there are few better fish. The coastal/beach reefs around the island hold trout up to 12lb not bad off the beach!!
Spanish Mackeral, The Vincent van Gogh of saltwater fly sports fishing. These are a beautiful looking fish that make you earn your reward. Fast powerful and dirty fighters.
Barracuda, They come in two sizes up in our parts. Small and annoying and massive followed by a Holly Crap!!
Northern Bluefin Tuna, For those of you that have never seen 400 yards of backing strip off your fly line in 30 seconds, this is the fish for you! Not a lot around in November but that’s good we want you fishing for the fish below.
