    Landbased Fishing darwin

    Yeah Land based fishing in Darwin, firstly , watch out for crocs ! Mandorah Jetty i would go to if decent tides, they get a mixed bag off there inc Spanish macks , queenies , trevally , sharks. The wharfs do still fish ok , but the majority of decent trevally etc will smoke you on structure . If your going to try for Barra landbased, id gather some info first on where is fishing good at the time you plan to go , as alot depends on what baitfish are around etc and of course the sometimes huge tides. The local knowledge of the crew at the darwin fishing and outdoor shop (in darwin city) are great , They will put you in the right direction and you could save yourself some time by speaking with them (they have a FB page too, and are responsive on messenger) Channel island and buffalo creek are some places to look into , plenty of land based barra get caught there usually under 80cm but good fun, you need to know what your doing barra fishing though with the tides etc, And like i say , fishing safely ! ,knowing what the massive tides are doing constantly , and keeping crocs in mind is absolute #1

    Question about Tuna oil

    DMCK , i just want to be sure what im buying as tuna oil doesnt contain blood. As the way the legislation reads for this state any form of animal blood (and a fish being an animal) is not legal within 3 nautical miles of the state mainland.

    Question about Tuna oil

    Savage , from my understanding thats incorrect ... the actual SA legislation states any blood of an animal. And a fish , if researched on line is classed as an animal.

    Question about Tuna oil

    Hi guys , i have a question regarding tuna oil. By law , it is illegal to berley with blood (amongst other things) from our saltwater shores. I see that alot of tuna oils available in tackle stores are very dark and thick , some are very pink/clear in colour also . My questions are, does anyone know the process of how the make tuna oil ? is there blood in tuna oil ? Is it legal to use tuna oil from the shore to berley ? cheers,
