Darwin has some superb bluewater charter boats, as well as professional barramundi guiding services

The NT has many good fishing charters, both bluewater fishing and for barramundi. And you can do both on the same day in some places.
If taking a bluewater charter out of Darwin you can stay anywhere in the city as the boarding points are near the CBD.
Most barramundi tours also leave from Darwin, with only a few based in remote areas.
Another option is to take an extended tour on a mothership.
The Million Dollar Fish promotion runs each year from October to February and you must register in case you catch a $10,000 tagged fish … details here http://www.milliondollarfish.com.au.

Crab Claw Island Resort is one of very few NT venues to offer accommodation and boat hire

Crab Claw Island Resort is one of very few NT venues to offer accommodation and boat hire

The NT is well served with boat hire services

Boat hire is available on location at some places, like Crab Claw at Bynoe Harbour and Mary River Houseboats at Corroboree Billabong.
If hiring a boat out of Darwin you can stay anywhere in the city as it is a short trip to all the boat ramps.

Records fall for 2018 NT Wet

The Daly River hits its 2018 peak on January 31

The Daly River hits its 2018 peak on January 31

It is going to be huge run-off season for the Top End this year.

The Daly River hit 14.9 metres on January 31, well past the major flood level, and all the northern catchments are full.

Rivers with a great outlook for the season are the Moyle, Daly, Finniss, Adelaide, Mary, Wildman and the various Kakadu rivers.

The McArthur in the Gulf of Carpentaria got a big, fast flush but the Roper has not had a lot of rain compared with the northern rivers.

This good rain follows a big wet season in 2017, good news for Territory fishos.

And don’t forget Million Dollar Fish also runs through February, and kicks off again in October.

Barramundi display individual movement patterns

Northern Territory barramundi display individual behaviour

Research is revealing the secrets of individual barramundi behaviour

Individual barramundi behave very differently.
And that’s not a fishermen’s thought, that is the finding of barramundi researchers.
Fishermen catch chromies (saltwater barra) at river mouths when there’s other chrome fish biting 50km upstream.
The research team explained after a four-day Roper River trip: “After downloading bulk acoustic tracking data, we were amazed by the behaviour of the tagged barramundi.
“Movements were tracked by automated listening stations placed at intervals from 5km offshore of the estuary mouth all the way upstream to Mataranka.
“Since the project began in late 2015, our 40 stations have recorded more than 2.6 million detections from more than 180 tagged barra, ranging from tiddlers to metre-plus fish.”
Star performers included a 630mm fish detected 10,065 times on 28 logging stations. It moved over a range of 185km, including large-scale movements within that range.
And yet another fish of 670mm fish stayed at one location over a 16-month period, with 44,079 detections from that location and nowhere else.
In between these extremes were all kinds of movement patterns, showing that while barra will move together in numbers, there are individuals that do their own thing.
“No wonder it is hard to work out what barra are doing and how to catch them,” researchers said.
Rain will trigger barramundi movement, and there’s been heavy early rain falling across the northern Top End.
For example, on Wednesday, 72mm was recorded at the top of the South Alligator catchment, with 45mm on the coast at Point Stuart.
On the same day Darwin region stations recorded falls to 54mm.
An early start can be a huge boost to the productivity of a wet season, if it keeps raining.
It might mean another big mob of small fish, and another future strong year-class for Top End fishos.
Two consecutive year classes are a good result, because if strong year-classes are years apart there would be more cannibalism by the larger fish.
Once the fingerlings of 2018 have six months to a year’s growth in them, they should be too big for the 2017 mob to eat.
