Welcome to the Top End

Always wanted to get to the Top End to reel in a barra! “Experience the Experience” with Reel Screamin Barra Fishing.  With over 20 years operating in the Top End, we offer a range of charters. Half-day, full-day, extended and multi-day Barra charters are offered throughout the year.

Depending on the time of year you head up, you will be either trolling a billabong among the wildlife or casting the mud flats or coastal creek or estuary.

The Barra Fishing

You can chase metre barra in the runoff or buildup in one of the coastal creeks or river mouths. Extended charters are generally run through these times as this gives you the best opportunity to get out on the water without wasting precious fishing time. During the buildup, we run both day and extended charters.

If you are up here during the dry season you can get out on the billabong to troll or cast the lilies as you watch the scenery as you go by. .  Not only will you chase Barramundi you will have a personalised wildlife tour of the billabong.  You will be able to get up close and personal with crocodiles sunning themselves along the banks, watch jabiru and whistling ducks feeding as you cruise the billabong, and see eagles and kytes soaring the sky above.

The wet season can offer good fishing as well in between the monsoons. The storms are generally early in the morning and after 3 pm gives you plenty of time to get out and chase a barra.

Whether you are a seasoned angler or just want to tick off catching a barra off your bucket list, your guide will teach you the art of barra fishing, or give you some tips on what works up here. Our small group charters (Up to 4 per boat) ensure you get one-on-one tuition and advice throughout the day.

You don’t have to take our word for it.
