Meet Scott at the Shady Camp Barrage about 1½ hour drive east from Darwin, part of the Mary River System. Scott will pick you up in our tenders, around 8 am, but we can fit in to suit your plans and ideas..  Once onboard the tender it’s quick trip out the mouth and into Tommycut Creek where the ‘Mothership’ Brute Force is anchored.  Unload and head out fishing. Depending on the tides, you’ll be flicking lures or trawling them, either way your in the action for Barra.  We have plenty of mudcrab pots and during your time on board we’ll be checking them, always good for lots of laughs as you try and keep your fingers and toes out of there way! Black jew fish, threadfin salmon and golden snapper are also fish targeted at this location.  Come back to the ‘Mothership’ for dinner and if the tide is right plenty of barra have been caught of the back of the boat during the night.
