One thing I thought was cool in darwin

 Is they do late arvo midcrab fishing tours just in the harbour near the main port. They go for about 4-5hrs and basically go for a cruise mid arvo and collect the mud crab pots, whilst having a few quiet beers. I didn't actually get to experience this myself,but it sounded like a good relaxing arvo tour

 I have been to Darwin

 I have been to Darwin several times and I always book a full day out on EQUINOX charters. Very professional and the gear is well maintained although you can take your own and they will set it up for the type of fishing in the Teritory. Phone number is (08) 8942 2199. Expect Black Jew and small sharks - the crew move when too many school sharks are hooked - along with the usual Northern Teritory reef fish. You get to keep what you catch and the limit is set by the skipper - I always give my catch away as it is difficult to freeze/ship when you are in a hotel.

Arafura Charter

Sun, 2017-08-13 15:16

We went out reef fishing with Arafura earlier this year at end of April. Great crew on the day (sounded like they have a few crews that work their boats so can't vouch for all of them ) that had a relaxed approach but they worked hard to put us on to fish. By midday we had the boat quota and headed in early. Think its the same company that I saw a while back before on Ifish tv show and recommended by the shows presenter.

 Of course ifish would recommend. The owner of Arafura owns a couple of tackleworlds. Can all be a bit hit and miss depending on the skipper that is on at the time. 

I would definately recommend the drive around to dundee and a day out of there. 


Does anyone know where the love of god goes, when the waves turn the minutes to hours?

 Gday Bullwing,

                        When were you thinking of the fishing trip?

I live at Dundee and must say the fishing is good out of here, i have no problem giving advice on which charter out of there, it does depend on when you are thinking of going out?

Also how many people, full or half day, how many people you want to fish with on the boat also lastly how much you appreciate your own personnel comfort. IE: Shade on the boat, toilet facilities for partners/children and not overcrowded ect.
