Melville Island

Melville Island

On nightshift tonight and bored sh##less so putting my time to good use. Pic of MI, spent a week on Melville Island last year for work and this is about the closest I got to fishing. Not happy, awesome country, with these endless creek system running everywhere. Where would you start?? Worst part I was staying at a barra fishing lodge and dinning on the days catch they were bringing home and listening to their stories. :(

P.S The guides go diving for crays occassionally, with one in the water and other on the bow with the rifle on croc watch. BUGGER THAT.

Was working up there building houses years ago, in snake bay.

The fishing was the best I've ever had, Barra on fly, cobia, mackies, trevs, jacks and more sharks than you could poke a stick at. Expencive as hell (if you have to pay for it) but a beautiful place to fish.

You must of been spewin!!
