We fished two days with River and Reef Fishing Charters, day 1 in and around Darwin harbour and day 2 at Corroboree Billabong. Chris was an excellent host and guide, providing great fun, great gear, great advice and very good lunches and refreshments. Although we did not catch a Barra, we caught many other great species.

Had a day on the truly wonderful Corroboree Billabong. Chris made an extra effort and piked us up at 5:00 am to make sure we were on the water early enough to capitalise on the daybreak feeding activity. The day kicked off with a welcome and satisfying hot sausage, bacon, egg roll and coffee served by friendly staff at the... More

We were picked up by the owner of the outfit and picked up a few fellow travelers from a number of other resorts in Darwin [in and around]. There was little verbal engagement by the guide who was indifferent to us. We were later dropped off at a "place [a Pub] where we could purchase breakfast - bacon & egg... More

Early start from Hotel around 5am, then by 4 x 4 to Corroboree Billabong, about 1+ hours out of Darwin City, then into a lovely boat for 4 fishermen/women and the Tour guide. In this case it was chris, a real down to earth bloke, originally from South Austyralia and he obviously knew his waters well and tried everything for... More

Just spent 2 days with Chris out at Corroboree then Shoal Bay and Darwin Harbour Sport Fishing. Chris knows all the spots in the Billabong and on the blue stuff so no time was wasted when the fish dropped off. Not the best time of year for the Barra but Chris's experience and persistence got us on to them along... More

This is the second time I've been fishing with these guys. It's quite an experience fishing corroborree billabong and look forward to going back. I felt the first trip gave us more variety of fishing. We trolled for Barra in the morning with no luck then changed to spinning for Saratoga. Was a great day with heaps of Saratoga caught.... More

We were all first timers ,Chris was fantastic teaching us... More

First time top end fishing for me from Ballarat, and a mate from Melbourne. Cold weather trout fishing pushed to the backs of our mind, with the lure of better and bigger things, and warmer weather. Fished with Chris Jones who was both a great teacher and guide. Two days in the harbour with the highlight a session on surface... More
