Here comes the rain!

Well we have been screaming for it so someone must’ve heard! Finally some rain is falling across the Top End thanks to a Tropical Low and rumour has it there is more to come shortly. Fisho’s are already jumping toward the odd culvert around the place and I hear of planned trips to the big river haunts as the rivers rise and fall quickly. Small 65mm Black Gold Squidgys, DOA Terroreyz and 3″ Zman Minnows are among the hot items on the shopping list this time of year so here we go. Prior to this deluge, Shoal Bay was ‘goin off’ in the low tide holes with barras to 85cm in good numbers. Darwin Harbour was also producing some nice Golden Snapper in the deep holes around Channel Island and Emery Point. Many fisho’s were shocked to see big schools of Longtail Tuna still about despite the warmer waters. Fish to 9kg were caught on the small Gillies Baitfish slugs off West Point. Lets keep our fingers crossed this rain keeps on coming!!!
