Shady Camp Runoff Barra Fishing

Shady Camp is known to produce quality Barramundi throughout the runoff. Fishing both the River Mouths of Sampan and Tommycut as well as the coastal creeks including Marsh, Love and Carmor Creeks. Extended Runoff Fishing Charters run from two to seven days, however we recommend clients spend a minimum of three days fishing.

Included in our Extended Charters

  • Door to Door transfers from your Darwin Accommodation or Airport (day flights)
  • All meals (Except breakfast the first day and dinner the last night)
  • Accommodation in motel style ensuite airconditioned rooms at Point Stuart Wilderness Lodge
  • Lures and Tackle (on a replace if lost or broken basis)
  • An experienced and friendly guide, Jarrod has been fishing Shady Camp for over 15 years.


You will depart Darwin at approximately 5.00am from your accommodation in an accredited Nissan Patrol Tourist Vehicle.  If you would like to go out the afternoon before, this can be arranged.  Shady Camp is about 2 hours from Darwin.  On the way out we stop at Corroboree Park Tavern for you to grab some coffee or breakfast before heading out fishing.


All meals are included, except breakfast the first day and dinner the last night. Clients enjoy a continental or fully cooked breakfast before your day’s fishing. Morning tea, snacks and a substantial lunch is provided on board. Dinner is served in the Lodge’s Bistro.  Clients are able to order their own dinner from the menu, with the meals being your typical pub meals.  You are also able to get the day’s catch cooked to your liking, which is very popular with the anglers.


We choose to base ourselves at Point Stuart Wilderness Lodge during the runoff.  Clients enjoy the comfortable airconditioned ensuite rooms after a day’s fishing in one of the lodge rooms.  There is also a pool to cool down in after a day’s fishing and to relax before dinner.


Our tackle is supplied by Shimano through Fishing and Outdoor World in Darwin. We use Shimano Barra Rods and reels as they are saltwater barra tough.  Our rods and reels are regularly serviced at Fishing and Outdoor World, including oiling, bearing changes and braid changes.
