Clearwater Island Lodge is located on Melville Island at Garden Point (Pularumpi) provides the ultimate fishing adventure for fishing enthusiasts of all skill levels. All types of fishing are catered for, whether it be lure, fly, bluewater, reef or estuaries.
The reason Clearwater Island Lodge has gained the reputation for being the hot spot in Australian fishing locations, is because of the huge diversity in fishing at this part of the Top End. After all, where else can one indulge in awesome estuary fishing in the morning and then enjoy the exhilaration of bluewater action in the afternoon!
A HUGE ARRAY OF FISH SPECIES:
Time after time, we hear plaudits such as the fishing here is just sensational! And thats not just because our guests are fishing in very lightly fished areas around the Tiwi Islands( Melville Island and Bathurst Island), but it is also because the ambience of the great Australian wilderness is something straight out of an adventure movie.
Surrounded by pristine beauty, your fishing adventure will include experiencing spectacular clear water, coral reefs, pristine white beaches and rock-bars. Youll likely catch one or more of the much sought-after tropical species such as Barramundi, Threadfin Salmon, Blue Salmon, Golden Trevally, Queenfish, Golden Snapper, Mangrove Jack, Black Jewfish and many others.
Youll be amazed at the serenity of this untouched region of Australia, with the silence being broken only by your catch or by the wonderful noises of the local birds and other wildlife.
SAY GDAY TO A CROCODILE OR TWO!
Whilst youre likely to see wildlife such as turtles, dugong and crabs, theres every likelihood that you will also see another of the Top Ends famous inhabitants, namely the salt water and fresh water crocodile! So make sure you bring your digital and video cameras with you, as youll want to record your memorable encounter with one of natures wildest beasts!
Made famous around the world by the likes of Paul Hogan and the late, great, Steve Irwin, the Australian crocodile is one of the most feared creatures of the Top End. With their distinctive features, these cold-blooded reptiles are in large quantities in this part of Australia. Being the key predators at the top of the food chain, the likes of Barramundi, sea eagles, goannas and turtles are always on the look-out for crocs, being ideal prey.
But dont worry our boats are large, high-sided and purpose-built, to provide complete safety.
Other exciting possible sightings whilst on your fishing trip, might be the likes of feeding dolphins, cruising sharks, the occasional whale and giant turtles. Indeed, everyone loves discovering turtle eggs hidden on a remote beach, so be prepared to go back home with some awesome photographs or videos!
REMOTE FISHING AT ITS BEST!
As you know, its hard to find anything that matches the thrill of pulling a large fish into your boat. (And of course, capturing the moment with a quick photograph!) And given that youll be testing your angling skills in Barramundi-infested estuaries and rock-bars, rest assured that youll be featuring in quite a few boastful photographs! And keep in mind that one of your challenges throughout the day will be deciding what fish you would like to enjoy for your evening meal!
Of course, the Barramundi is the icon fish of the tropics and the population of Barras in our area is simply spectacular. The Barramundi is truly the King of Australias sport fish and can grow to more than 30 kilos at full size.
Given the look on our guests faces when they catch a Barramundi, it is obviously the dream of many anglers to land one of these spectacularly beautiful fish!
But of course, theres plenty more to fishing at Clearwater Island Lodge than just Barramundi. Other species prolific in our estuary and river systems include Spanish Mackerel, Golden Snapper, Queenfish, Giant Trevally, Coral Trout, Mangrove Jack, Long Tail Tuna and many other types.
