The Mary River System is renowned as a fertile marine nursery offering superb top end fishing. In 1987 a man made barrage was constructed at Shady Camp to prevent saltwater from penetrating into the freshwater further up river. Who would have thought that this combination of salt and fresh would make for some of the best Top End Barramundi fishing that the Northern Territory has to offer?

When you book an extended fishing charter you will get to experience more than just fishing which makes it a highly desired destination for many visiting the Top End.
