Run Off Barra Fishing, Shady Camp

(extended tour, March-May)

The Run Off is one of the best times of the year to get into some serious Barramundi Fishing. Occurring at the end of the wet season when the floodplains are draining into the big rivers, Barramundi congregate at these Run Off locations for an easy feed. This congregation of Barra makes it easier than other times of the year to find the fish, this also offers one of the better opportunities to tangle with a trophy Barramundi over the magic metre mark. When Run Off Barramundi fishing we concentrate on the Mary River at Shady Camp but may change location if conditions dictate.
