Below are some pictures from my recent fishing trip to Melville Island, part of the group of Tiwi Islands which are situated above Darwin, Northern Australia.

Am too tired and down with the flu, so I will not write a full report and rather let the pictures do the talking.

Some more pictures, predominantly from the fresh waters of Goose Creek, some 40 minutes inland from the ocean.

I was hoping to have a section on ocean fishing as well. However, the weather gods were not in a good mood and there were strong winds during our stay.

This meant rough seas with large waves, making fishing hazardous. We had to unfortunately give up and return to sheltered waters.

Hopefully, another trip sometime.

Once the fishing is over, you have to pay attention to your equipment.

Reels and rods, lures washed with freshwater. The former two dried and sprayed with Inox ( better than WD 40) and left to all air out on the table.

A final oiling of the reels and we are good to go on our next trip.

Yes, they are all travel rods and fit easily into a duffel bag or a suitcase.
They cover the range from light Barra rods, medium spinning rods to a heavy rod for GTs or trolling for large pelagic fish.

Sure you had a great trip catching so many variety of fishes..
The place looks very good.. Does these salmon get bigger like the Indian ones?

Hello Venkat,

Yes, the blue salmon grow to similar sizes and are considered fine eating.

Mine was way too small and released, as were the rest of the fish we caught.

That's a wide variety of fish you've caught there.

Hope to see some pelagics from your next trip.

Hello Maruthu,

Yes, I was really looking forward to a tussle with a GT and to try out the Clash 6000 reel on it and the large black jewfish to be found in the area.

Some of the boats had gone out despite the conditions but only caught queen fish and barracudas before they had to run back to shelter.

Regards,
Kingfish

The lodge, being on an island, is serviced by air from Darwin. Two flights daily, one at 9am and the other at 4 pm.

On our return, the plane to pick us up had some technical problem and we had to wait for an hour before the airline quickly sent a replacement craft.

At the end of a day's fishing, we would congregate at the bar before the 7pm dinner bell.

Here, on the left are 2 owls made by a local Aboriginal artist.

Above the bottles is a spectacular cast of a large barramundi.

Hello Jeen,

The "Wet Season" from January to March is to be avoided in the Northern Territories of Australia for obvious reasons.

The couple of months afterwards ( April, May) are the "run off" period when the fresh water cascades down to the ocean. This is considered the best time to catch barramundi.

We went in the cooler season ( June, July, August) as the weather is nicer but the fishing may be hot or cold.

I would not recommend going to this lodge as the accommodation was very poor despite paying top dollars..... just a glorified container with air conditioning and ensuite.

There are lodges with 5 star rating that we will visit next year and other recently renovated ones that would have good fishing and AC Safari tents. Let me know if you are interested.

I am not sure if the blue salmon is common to Asian waters.

Kind regards,
Kingfish

Hi


Eleutheronema tetradactylum thats the scientific name and the Aussie vernacular is "blue salmon" . check http://www.fishbase.org/ The best search when in doubt, you can check with common name or scientific.

Thanks, Jeen.

Checked the site and the blue salmon is widespread throughout Asia.

Have any anglers on this forum caught one in India?

Could this be a GT ? It has that characteristic sloping forehead and annoyed look .... but it was caught in an estuary, which would explain its dark colour.

Thats a baby Gt. THe Rawas is an indian name more so a north indian name. down south its called bameen,. Ok you know what go to fish base search for blue salmon .. then scroll down to common names at the bottom of the page . then in common names you get the local name of the fish used in most countries. look at Indian names and Australian. Your confusion will end.

Jeen,

When I catch Rawas in Karnataka coast, they're called "Ramsha".

Jeen,

We have two types:

.Blue salmon with 4 "whiskers".

.Threadfin salmon (also called King Threadfin) with 5 whiskers. This grows to a larger size.

Please clarify if both types are prevalent in Indian waters and are called Rawas/Bameen/Ramsha irrespective of type?

Yeah here we go again....

Blue salmon is our rawas ( four finger thread fin ) ( max weight on fish base 145 lb) i havn't seen any that big. A nice specimen i saw was caught by Darren of game fishing Andamans in Goa about 15 kg I would say

king salmon five fingered we dont have in India .. me and my boys caught a few in PNG.( max weight on fishbase 45 kg) the fish we caught were 4 to 5 kg.

Some of my friends went to Gabon to fish the Giant african Threadfiin from the beach Polydactylus quadrifilis. Max weight on fish base 75 kg. The best they caught was 22 kg.

Ok, so that clarifies matters .... only blue salmon in India, whereas we have both types of Threadfin salmon in Australia in the same waters.

Africa ... as a travelling angler, one has to keep a finger on the pulse of countries one wishes to go fishing because of safety concerns.

We were in Nairobi on safari and were planning to return for an angling trip and within months of our leaving there was a massive attack in a Nairobi shopping mall ... have no wish to return there now.

Just be careful in your choice.

Darwin

This port was bombed by the Japanese in the Second World War, along with Sydney Harbour . Anticipating a Jap invasion, the Aussies fortified Darwin and placed ammunition in hidden dumps in the forest, as shown below.

Lunch was served on the boat everyday, with the guide choosing a safe area to moor the boat.
You had to make your own sandwich from the spread. A cold,light beer was always there for me along with soft drinks and plenty of cold water to drink during the day.

I have had a golden rule whenever we are fishing, " No beer until a fish is caught." It does make you
concentrate !

A view of the Lodge, social area,bar and dining area.

Notice the chain link fence .... this enclosed the entire resort so as to keep out the saltwater crocodiles which can come up on land at high tide.

We joked that the fence was to stop drunk anglers from falling into the water and getting eaten by the crocs!

Perhaps there is merit in both scenarios!

The guide's lures

I always like to see what the guide carries for tackle. This one had an assortment of hard bodies but favoured the American Mann Stretch 10s over the Aussie ones or the Yozuri.

Hi,

Thanks for the advice on that charter. Any way when we fish northern territory if ever, we would like to hire a truck , drive around , fish and camp rather than a charter. And for boats also try to find local fishermen and hire/ tag along. Make preparations and research via the internet.For that Scott ( world fisher) is a great example of what could be done.

Cheers Jeen

Jeen,

It would be remiss of me not to advise you that the Northern Territory (NT) is a tough, unforgiving place with quite a few unsavoury characters residing in the remote areas. No need to mention the snakes and crocodiles.

That is why I admire what Scott did and am happy that he came through without any incident.

Please think this through carefully. If you do intend to go, I suggest you contact the NT Tourist Dept., who will help plan your trip and provide you with detailed information.

In no way am I trying to dissuade you from this undertaking but I am a bit uneasy about the possibilities. Call it old age.

sure, caution is a good thing. will get in touch with some of my gt fishing Aussie friends before we plan any thing. yeah old age. we been through a lot in many parts of the world. earlier it was me looking out for the boys. but now its them who give me the confidence.

Its probably late 2017 or early 18. will look at it closer to the trip then. Thanks mate for your concern and advice.

We also caught quite a few finger mark bream ( so called because of the black print mark at the rear of the body) as the Aussies call them, or better known as the golden snapper.

It is a good fighter and was the tastiest fish on the table, surpassing barramundi in our opinion.

The lure is a Classic " Gold Dazzler" used exclusively by us for trolling and it was a standout performer.This is a very popular Aussie lure, which comes in a vast array of colours and covers depths down to 15 feet.

It is a floater, so that if it snags and breaks off, it rises to the surface and can be retrieved .... which is exactly what happened with this very lure.

Stripers have moved up north now. It should pick up again in fall around mid October, when they migrate south.
Fishing is in summer mode right now, and I haven't been fishing much. Now flounder fishing should be good.
I may try for brown sharks sometime in the next few weeks. They are around and I have heard of people losing spiked fishing rods to sharks or huge rays. I have never caught a large shark from surf, and that would be something that I want to try until fall.

What do you use to target the Saratogas? They look very similar to the Arowana found in the Amazon.

You are correct, the Saratoga is similar to the Arowana, same subfamily.

We caught them on Z man rubber frogs, rigged weedless. Hooks had to be set hard due to their bony mouth.The guide also caught them on bait (meat), so Saratoga will hit artificials and bait readily.

Shark fishing .... exciting stuff! Have you got the heavy gear ready? What rod and reel setup ?

Would love to catch those Saratogas and barramundi in those waters sometime.
For the sharks I have a heavy 11 feet Ocean Master Surf spinning rod, which I am pairing with a Shimano Thunnus 12000 baitrunner loaded with 65lb braid. Will definitely post pictures if I land one!!

Hello Bobby,

Thanks .

Sorry to hear the sad news. I am sure your father would have wished for you to continue fishing.

It is also good therapy after a loss like that.

Thanks Kingfish, actually dad hated fishing :), but my brother and myself love it. Dad never encouraged it but never discouraged it either. One thing though he was always proud of the catches especially the big ones we brought home.

He did say he hated fishing because he was useless at it.

Sorry to hear about your loss Bobby!

You were very helpful to me when I started angling a decade ago and I'm very glad to hear that you are going to be back at it.

Please let me know if you are planning to fish Karnataka coast.

Thanks Maruthu, I had fished in little bits and pieces, when I was in India to get my mind off things, even going back to the worm and float, but not the hardcore stuff the way I used to.

November, I am trying to decide between Gujarat and Karnataka with one of my old fishing buddies.
