  • Can I bring my fish home?
    Absolutely! We’ll clean, fillet and bag it for you. You can take it home to cook or head out to one of the fine restaurants that Darwin has to offer where they’ll turn your catch into a work of art.
  • Where do we fish?
    It’s a secret, but we travel up to 100 km each way on our day trips to reach some of the best fishing the Northern territory has to offer. Fuel costs are not a limiting factor. Some of our fishing spots – Offshore Waters West, North and East of Darwin, the Vernon islands, Offshore Dundee Beach, Peron islands, Tiwi Islands, Bynoe Harbour, Cape Hotham, and so many remote reefs and shoals.
