Andy Grey « Sun Feb 26, 2017 10:35 am » if we know this bloke ? if we do then would you be better asking 'for his contact details' to fix him up the rest of the 'or so' !
nomad « Sun Feb 26, 2017 10:11 am » Exactly how much is '$200 or so'? so you only need to cough up for the remaining $300 or so!
jabsy « Sat Feb 25, 2017 11:44 pm » Gave someone $200 for a $500 rod you broke? I'm sure the second thanks will make up for it then...
barrabustin « Sat Feb 25, 2017 11:05 pm » Seen a dozen or so Barra landed Friday after about 3pm none Saturday
barrabustin « Sat Feb 25, 2017 11:03 pm » Fishing shady Friday and Saturday for one rat Barra and a few salmon at the mouth, went out to the jewfish reef caught a dozen salmon out there.
NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished « Sat Feb 25, 2017 8:29 pm » Today I broke the rod getting off the dinghy of a stranger who saved me 4 hrs and 1000 mozzie bites waiting for the tide to turn at Buffalo Creek so I could cross one of the creeks back to the boat ramp. I paid him $200 or so for his $500 rod and feel so bad. If you know this bloke please give him a second thanks from me. I will prey his next catch is a 120cm barra.

qiksix « Fri Feb 24, 2017 6:39 pm » Fished shady today, lots of boats, no barra seen landed by anyone! Only a couple of small threadies seen landed by others
Barrajas « Fri Feb 24, 2017 4:32 pm » The reports ive heard so far its been very mixed.
Barrajas « Fri Feb 24, 2017 3:51 pm » Many reports coming from Shady??
aRobbo « Fri Feb 24, 2017 3:40 pm » still trying to get used to it all, totally different from my style of fishing in UK
aRobbo « Fri Feb 24, 2017 3:39 pm » thanks mate, i have 20lb braid with 20lb leader at the moment
RedDevil « Fri Feb 24, 2017 3:28 pm » or use 50lb to be safe
RedDevil « Fri Feb 24, 2017 3:28 pm » 30lb leader is plenty
RedDevil « Fri Feb 24, 2017 3:28 pm » aRobbo, i use 20lb-30lb braid but even that may be too heavy
Quinntreximon « Fri Feb 24, 2017 1:47 pm » Mitcho the one with the feeding fish at the mouth. They can be at any creek at anytime time or at none of the creeks. If we all new that then we would all fish it. Sampan is the most popular, followed by tommycut. Normally u just get in line and hope your number is next to hookup
aRobbo « Fri Feb 24, 2017 12:22 pm » what lb braid and leader would people advise to fish of east point/lee point
maxpower « Fri Feb 24, 2017 11:57 am » the one the fish decide to turn up at.

wazdog « Fri Feb 24, 2017 10:29 am » Lauren Moss Minister for Tourism and Culture Secret Million Dollar Tag Number Revealed 24 February 2017 The secret tag number of the $1 million barra released in Season 2 for Tourism NT’s Million Dollar Fish competition has been revealed. Minister for Tourism and Culture Lauren Moss joined cricket legend and Million Dollar Fish ambassador Matthew Hayden at the Dinah Beach boat ramp to announce the secret number. “If you’re lucky enough to catch a red tagged Barra and it carries tag number 2656 - you are an instant millionaire for Million Dollar Fish Season 2,” Ms Moss said. “With nearly 45,000 people registering for the competition, the Million Dollar Fish campaign is extremely important to our tourism industry; it boosts the economy, brings in visitors and creates jobs for Territorians. “Million Dollar Fish is also extremely important for local business and fishing tour operators over the quieter wet season.” Fishos are reminded to not remove the tag until they have taken a photo of the fish with the red Million Dollar Fish tag clearly visible and placed on a ruler or tape measure to show the length of the fish for verification. CrownBet CEO Matt Tripp said “The Million Dollar Fish is still out there, and best of luck to all the fishos between now and midnight on 28 February in catching a red tagged Barramundi. “Season 2 has been a smashing success, with eight lucky winners landing $10,000 cash each already. “CrownBet is proud to present this competition in partnership with the Northern Territory Government providing a significant stimulus to the broader Territory economy.” With Season 2 of the Million Dollar Fish competition closing at the end of this month Australian Cricket legend Matthew Hayden also encouraged local and visiting fishos to register for the competition. “The Top End’s fishing is world-class and it’s not a bad spot to holiday either, every time I visit these parts it’s a great adventure,” he said. “This is the last weekend to hook either a $10,000 fish or the big $1 million barra. “With 92 Barra worth $10,000 as well as the prized million dollar fish still swimming about, there’s a great chance you could find a prize at the end of your line. “There are still four fishing trips to Top End destinations up for grabs just by registering for Season 2 of the Million Dollar Fish Competition.” The Million Dollar Fish Season 2 competition runs from 1 October 2016 – 28 February 2017. To be eligible participants must register online at www.milliondollarfish.com.au. Media Contact – Jake Hauritz - 0478 128 268

Jerro « Thu Feb 23, 2017 10:56 pm » Travelled from Darwin to Dundee on Sunday and back yesty, winds were good in the morning and had a good trip home but no fish on any of the reefs. Fished the mouth of the Finniss and got some good Barra into the 80's with other boats getting good fish into the 90's with some bigger fish dropped. Classics bling with anything blue on them were doing the damage, have i said enough or should i say the mouth?
hottuna « Thu Feb 23, 2017 10:36 pm » Negative mate, no tractors. Below 4metres you will be launching on soft sand
Nogood « Thu Feb 23, 2017 10:30 pm » Thanks hot tuna we are heading to the Vic river instead
Lats « Thu Feb 23, 2017 10:25 pm » Bodge, I wouldn't go in less than 4m but if you do make sure it's a rising tide and be prepared to be scraping bottom
Jjones123 « Thu Feb 23, 2017 9:28 pm » Hottuna.. cheers for the info..Hopefully the wind drops as forcast by the weekend.. is there a tractor service running?
bodge007 « Thu Feb 23, 2017 8:45 pm » Was wondering how much tide I need to launch at Buff. Have a 490 Renegade. Do I need the 4m or could I do it with less? Cheers
hottuna « Thu Feb 23, 2017 7:58 pm » Dundee has been very windy. From 10am onwards it has been upwards of 20knots most days. The fresh water edge is nearly at Sail on the bottom of the low. I had ramp troubles today launching at 11am, got bogged even after ditching the boat off the trailer
sharkbait « Thu Feb 23, 2017 6:45 pm » Hey Blinky, we didn't fish any of the barrages, had a quick flick at the T-junction of the 3rd, where it enters Sampan. Few fish on the sounder and a couple of small boofs along the edge. There was a bit of bait getting pushed out of there too, wouldn't say heaps, but enough.
dannett « Thu Feb 23, 2017 2:32 pm » I think I will check out Jacksons and the paint shop as suggested.
jabsy « Thu Feb 23, 2017 1:04 pm » No probs dannet, the kids dont have that much.
goldfish « Thu Feb 23, 2017 12:43 pm » Can always launch at the crossing it was at 10m over yesterday
Jjones123 « Thu Feb 23, 2017 11:59 am » Was wondering the same Nogood. Going down this weekend.
Blinky « Thu Feb 23, 2017 8:38 am » Sharkbait, did you fish any of the barrages?
BigBlue « Thu Feb 23, 2017 6:19 am » Anybody have any news on the access into the Daly??
dannett « Wed Feb 22, 2017 11:15 pm » Jabsy I am looking for about half a kilo. Been using it to make paste wax and also want to waterproof a canvas poncho. Previously got a block about the size of a soap bar from Bunnings, think about $15.
sharkbait « Wed Feb 22, 2017 9:20 pm » Fished Shady today, no fish. Saw one thready caught and spoke to one boat at the ramp who got 3 barra. Counted 35 boats at the mouth but estimated 50 odd in the carpark. The road out is excellent, the few bits that had been washed out are all fixed up.
Nogood « Wed Feb 22, 2017 7:50 pm » Has anyone been out off dundee latey
jabsy « Wed Feb 22, 2017 6:25 pm » If you only need a blob, my kids would have some you could use. How much do you want?
jabsy « Wed Feb 22, 2017 6:25 pm » Dannett my kids school sells it, its about 5 bucks for a small piece about the size of one of thos little small chocolate bars. Furry Friends or something?
STOKESY77 « Wed Feb 22, 2017 5:31 pm » dannett, try jackson's art supplies @ parap shops might be cheaper than trade stores
matt1311 « Wed Feb 22, 2017 5:10 pm » When you get some prices for timber go into bunnings and tell them there cheaper and bunnings will have to beat it worked good for me i told them trade building supplies prices were lower and saved my self about 30$ a sheet
jeffish « Wed Feb 22, 2017 2:26 pm » dannett, try some of the paint trade shops , wattyl or taubmans in winnellie rd used to have the 1kg block . but it still ain't a cheap thing to buy.
dannett « Wed Feb 22, 2017 1:50 pm » Found an expensive small block at Bunnings... but hoping there is a better alternative.
dannett « Wed Feb 22, 2017 1:49 pm » Anyone know where you can get beeswax in Darwin?
Jokes « Wed Feb 22, 2017 1:45 pm » Anyone got a deckie spot for this weekend or monday/ tuesday
DanOz « Tue Feb 21, 2017 6:34 pm » Shady is open for business
simmo60 « Mon Feb 20, 2017 8:41 pm » Thanks for the info fellas. Great site! Thank you all.
simmo60 « Mon Feb 20, 2017 8:39 pm » Thats the plan Lats. Just thought someone might have a start point as I haven't been out there before. Hpefully we find em. If not it's still better than working. Cheers Mate.
jeffish « Mon Feb 20, 2017 8:36 pm » simmo , If you can afford it go marine , But structual will stand up if sealed correctly. search the old posts heaps of info .
Matt Flynn « Mon Feb 20, 2017 8:32 pm » re the ply I reckon marine ply if stored outside, and paint it well. Costs a lot more tho. Normal painted ply OK if he covers the boat
Matt Flynn « Mon Feb 20, 2017 8:31 pm » just have to sound around and look for fish on the wrecks Simmo60, they move around, the Marchart is usually reliable
Lats « Mon Feb 20, 2017 8:30 pm » Simmo, that's a question for someone who fished them today. Fish move a lot. Move from wreck to wreck until you find fish.
simmo60 « Mon Feb 20, 2017 8:24 pm » Another one. Mates gotta do his floor. Structural or marine ply. Boat is stored outside when not in use
Quinntreximon « Mon Feb 20, 2017 7:24 pm » Hhhmmmm Nomad. Hope they also left they Bungs out as well as they took off into the distance.
simmo60 « Mon Feb 20, 2017 6:26 pm » Quick question fellas. Best Fenton wreck for tmoz?
nomad « Mon Feb 20, 2017 6:05 pm » I asked a bloke in Vic years ago why he drove around the road closed sign. He told me that it was only a little sign and didn’t even block the road. Ie he thought the road wasn’t closed unless the signs and barricades went across the entire road. Be careful people, these nutters are out there
Blinky « Mon Feb 20, 2017 3:03 pm » From what I hear the Shady road was nearly fully repaired until a few morons decided to drive through the road closed sign and now it's worse than previously.........
Quinntreximon « Mon Feb 20, 2017 2:58 pm » All roads still closed, anyone know any different???? All eyes on Shady I bet.
tugger1 « Mon Feb 20, 2017 2:10 pm » Watching the road reports like a hawk
Blinky « Mon Feb 20, 2017 9:56 am » Saturday.....bait at every place we went to, the Barra were not.
