Remote Mothership Adventures

Overview:

To experience some of the most extraordinary estuary and inshore sportfishing in the country, we offer trips fishing the remote waters of the Western Northern Territory. To enable us to access, such pristine coastline, we employ the use of the purpose built, comfortable, safe and practical mothership “Tropic Paradise. A 65ft catamaran which can accomodate 6-12 clients in air-conditioned comfort, anchored in close proximity to our chosen fishing locations. This affords us the flexibility to travel along the coast with our custom built fishing vessels in tow, concentrating effort on the systems producing the best results during any given trip.

The Fishing:

We primarily focus on Barramundi, Threadfin Salmon and Mangrove Jacks in the creeks and rivers and creeks with lure and fly, along with delicious Mud crabs. The bluewater grounds lay just offshore of our anchorages adjacent to the river mouths. Here we target Black Jewfish, Golden Snapper, Coral Trout, Black Spot Tuskfish, assorted Emperor species, Spanish and School Mackerel, Longtail and Mac Tuna, Queenfish, and several species of Trevally, occasionally pursuing Sailfish and juvenile Black Marlin with conventional or fly tackle(at clients request).

Duration:

5-8 days fishing (one day transit either side).
