Arnhem Land

Arnhem Land will provide you with an angling experience of a lifetime. The pristine areas in remote north east Arnhem Land boast a number of species. While most groups’ prime target is the Barramundi with Barramundi fishing being exceptionally good in the estuaries, headlands and creeks, there is also the opportunity to catch Fingermark, GT’s, Mangrove Jacks, Estuary Cod, Salmon, Barracuda and many more. The nearby Wessel or English Company Islands offer a spectacular change of scenery with waters that are virtually unfished.

What to expect on your charter:

  • In 2020 your "Australian Sportfishing Charters Ultimate NT Barramundi Adventure" will begin from Gove harbour.
    • Upon your arrival into Gove, you will be met by the bus and transferred to Gove harbour where your mothership,"Iron Lady" will be waiting.
    • Once onboard, we will depart for the fishing grounds on the tide.
    • The next morning, breakfast will be served and the fishing gear will be loaded into the skiffs ready for you to blow away your casting blues and catch your first fish.
    • The next seven days will be spent catching fish – timing dependent on the tides and hot spots. You will be taken to a number of different locations and learn about the local area from your guides. With meals provided every day and a cold drink and nibbles awaiting your return back on the Iron Lady for the day – you will be treated like kings and queens.
    • After your last day of fishing, the Iron Lady will depart the fishing grounds for Gove, arriving with ample time to board the bus transfer to the airport for your flight back home.
