Arnhem Land Charters

Arnhem Land

An ultimate pristine unique fishing experience of a lifetime come and join Australian Sportfishing Charters in East Arnhem land and be surrounded by remote wilderness. The region boasts a diverse number of fish species. The unspoilt rivers, estuaries, headlands and creeks are home to the iconic fish the Barramundi which is our prime target. The opportunity will also be there for you to come in contact with fish species that abundantly reside here, 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 2021 your “Australian Sportfishing Charters Ultimate NT Barramundi Adventure” will begin from Gove harbour.

Upon your arrival into Gove, you will be met by bus and transferred to Gove harbour where your mothership, “Iron Lady” will be waiting.

Once on board, we will depart for the fishing grounds on the tide.

After an overnight steam, the morning will find you in the remote splendour of East Arnhem Land. The fishing gear will be loaded into the skiffs ready for you to blow away your casting blues and catch your first fish.

For the duration of your charter with us, kick back and enjoy your fishing adventure while everything is taken care of. The Iron Lady will become your home, where you can relax and enjoy meals provided by the chef and a cold drink and nibbles upon your return back on the Iron Lady at the end of each day. Every day, you will be guided to a number of different locations, timing dependent on the tides and hot spots, learn about the local area and new fishing techniques from your personalised guide.

On the conclusion of fishing on 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.
