A silver headland Barramundi caught by Bill in The Arnhem Land

Barramundi Sports Fishing

Northern Territory

Choose from Arnhem Land or the Roper River Charters.

February - August

We fish in two fantastic locations. First is the Roper River in the SW Gulf of Carpentaria. The adventure starts with a spectacular private flight onboard the Amphibian Grumman Mallard Flying Boat, right to the back of the Iron Lady mothership. At Roper River, the target species is (big) barramundi, and you have a good chance of catching the famed ‘Metery’. There will be a few other fish around, and if you pick a week with the right tides, mud crabs or freshwater prawns should be on the menu.

Secondly, we fish in the eleven remote rivers feeding Arnhem and Buckingham Bays in the beautiful NE Arnhem Land. Here, we also target barramundi but have the opportunity to catch a range of other species, including golden snapper, jewfish, threadfin salmon, and giant trevally. In this location, we can guarantee that mud crabs will be on the menu.
