Barramundi Fishing The Runoff

One of the best times of the year to get into some serious Barramundi Fishing.

Occurring at the end of the wet season when the water on the flood plains start receding. With this receding water comes all sorts of Barramundi sweets, frog’s tadpoles, small fish etc.

The Barramundi congregate at these run off locations for what is probably the easiest feed they are going to get all year. This good news for Barra is also good news for the fishing, making this piscatorial pursuit a little easier than it can be at other times of the year.

Whilst the timing of the Runoff does depend on the weather as a rule the months of March through to Mid May is Run Off time.

Famous Top End fishing locations like Shady Camp, South Alligator River, East Alligator River and the Daly River are all great Runoff Barramundi fishing locations. During this time of the year, these rivers produce some great Barramundi fishing with reports of trophy Barramundi being a daily occurrence.

Fishing the Run Off is best experienced on an extended tour. These tours can be either land based accommodation or Mothership based at the mouth of a Run Off river. The live aboard Mothership fishing charter option is now becoming quite popular as travel times on the water can be reduced meaning more fishing time and access to other areas.

Whilst you cant go past an extended tour if time doesn't permit you can still get into some great Barramundi fishing on a day tour.

Take a few minutes to check out Fish The Top End's Barramundi tour options and start planning your fishing adventure now as run off fishing tours fill quickly.
