Shady Camp / Mary River / Daly River / Dundee Beach
The Northern Territory Runoff is the prime time of year to plan your escape.
This time of year, the Runoff from the wet season makes its way to the coast. Barra of all sizes school in the big river systems. They come for one reason; to feed. They feed on the myriad of baitfish being swept downstream with the last of the floodwaters.
‘Shady Camp’, part of the Mary River is famous for trophy Barra. This is the time to target truly large fish. You never know, you just may land a metery.
The Runoff is what to look forward to every year, as not many experiences in fishing compare to seeing a very large Barra jump out of the water. Plenty of Crocodiles and birds also make the most of the abundance of bait in the river systems.
Targeting Barra through trolling and casting at this time of year, You just never know when a metery will strike, and there is no need to be gentle at this time of year.
