Barra comp for NT, NQ and WA fishos – win Minn Kota

The FFF Seadogs Fishing Competition at www.fishingterritory.com is on again this year with a top of the range Minn Kota electric motor as lead prize.

FFF Seadogs is an interstate event where fishos post brag mat shots of their fish.

It is very much a barramundi fishing competition, but there are provisions for other species.

Have a look here. If you live in NT, NQ or WA barra country, then you should enter, all you need is a FFF sticker on your boat!

All the action is at Shady camp

Shady Camp has been the scene of the best barramundi fishing in the Top End so far this year, with several metre-plus barra caught, and a load of big threadfin salmon keeping fishos busy.
Salmon have made quite a comeback since the nets were pulled out of the NT’s famous Chambers Bay.
Other rivers have been sporadic, as the floodwater has fallen fast. Top End fishos are hoping another monsoonal blast might lengthen the barra run-off season.
Good fishing will continue because there has been enough rain, but launching has become reliant on the tides at places like Shady Camp barrage.
Speaking of launching, the Daly River has been almost inaccessible through the run-off this year because the public boat ramp has been closed because of alleged “flood damage”.
Fishos who have walked past the locked gate have noted that there is no visible damage.
This is a terrible state of affairs because public boat launching further upstream at the Daly crossing is not ideal.
The NT Government needs to sort this situation out because the Daly is the Top End’s iconic barra river.
Meanwhile, in completely different news, pro mack fisho Norm Hedditch’s boat has been speared by a marlin, penetrating a tough jarrah/fibreglass hull.
