Darwin Harbour is so different to the kind of fishing I’m used to.

No anchoring in the shipping channel is allowed. That’s where the electric motor with spot-lock is so handy for fishing.
In this episode I actually catch quite a few species of fish while fishing in Darwin Harbour. Golden Snapper, Bluebone/Tuskfish and Nannygai to name a few.
