Scott will pick you up in the tenders, travel down the Daly River to the Mouth, It’s 2.5 hour boat ride down the river to the ‘Mothership’ but it is beautiful scenery and you watch the river change from quite narrow to hugely wide and sparse at the mouth.  You be intrigued as Scott navigates the perils of the river, with every year the underside of the river changes from the strong tides. Once at the ‘Mothership’ unload and head out fishing, if you after barra then the fishing will be in the river and coastal creeks.  It you want a bit of both barra and reef, when the barra aren’t biting we head out of the Mouth into Anson bay and fish for the pelagics and reef fish.  Travelling to the Peron Island, Redcliff, Crystal Creek etc.  We’ll also have mub crabs pots so, and will checking them throughout your stay, this is always good a great laugh as everyone is nervous for their own fingers and toes.  Lunch is on the tenders and in the late afternoon head back to the ‘Mothership’ for afternoon nibbles and catch of the day or steak, chops and fresh produce for dinner.  If the fish are on we’ll stay out on the reef and fish for black Jew Fish, if everyone is up for it.
