Barra Fishing and Mud Crabbing (Darwin Creek Australia)

Mud crabs and fresh Barramundi. The perfect combination for a Catch and Cook episode. That was the plan anyway.

We actually did catch both Barra and Mud Crabs, but unfortunately the fishing wasn’t good enough to bring anything home for the Catch and Cook.

The fishing location today was up a small creek in Darwin called Buffalo Creek. Buffalo creek is a popular land-based fishing spot for Darwin locals and visitors who don’t have access to a boat. For those of us lucky enough to own a boat, the Buffalo Creek Boat Ramp is a good resource because it offers quicker access to fishing and crabbing locations in Darwin, without launching in the harbour.

If you’re new to the area and want to use the Buffalo Creek boat ramp:

  • You could probably launch your boat in the water at a 2 metre low, but there would be no point. You wouldn’t be able to head upstream or downstream.
  • On the upstream side, there is 2 rock bars that I reckon you would need 4 metres to get over comfortably.
  • On the downstream side, Buffalo opens up into the ocean and gives assess to fishing ground off Lee Point and over in Shoal Bay. I have been told that you should only attempt to get out of Buffalo Creek at approximately 4 metres.

If you’re new here, I hope you enjoy my fishing videos. All of my fishing videos are based in Australia’s Northern Territory. Some are local to Darwin in the NT’s Top End. And a lot of my videos are from remote locations, including the McArthur River in the Gulf of Carpentaria.
