Runoff Barra Safaris

Barra/Coastal Safaris

Buildup Safaris

Late February – May

Based at Shady Camp, which is well known for producing quality Barra. When the floodplains start to empty and the baitfish make their way into the river the big barra move up into the rivers to ambush the bait. This is the prime time for chasing barra in the coastal creeks and mouths of the rivers.

May – November

Barra/Coastal Safaris target both barra and coastal species including GT’s, Queenfish, Snapper, Mackeral and other reef fish species.

September – November

The buildup attracts the Big Barra to the river mouths for breeding.  It also attracts the Threadfin Salmon to school and feed at the river mouths. Jew fish are also a target species at this time of year. Other Target species are Queenfish and other Coastal Sportfish varieties
