However, the afternoon low tides are perfect for gutter fishing in the harbour arms and creeks, and barra are likely to be biting. Be sure to put your boat in while there is still enough water in the ramp, then go quickly to your chosen creek while there is enough water. Be sure to check local maps and charts for any reefs and rocks in the area you will travel, as getting stuck on a falling tide is no fun at all. Flick the drains as the tidal flow comes out with luck there will be barra waiting to ambush bait. The area around the drains is all worth probing with lures, or anchor quietly and drop livebaits. If you havent already looked, there are large tides over Christmas on a new moon ideal for tidal barramundi fishing. So stock up on shallow barramundi lures, and be prepared to fish the afternoon lows. Watch out for storms. Its time to fill the Christmas stockings if you have a fisherman in the family, you cant go wrong buying a new rod or reel, lures, magazines or quality polarising sunglasses like Tonics. Other things to consider are landing nets, a good sun hat with neck flap, knives and sharpeners, or some protective fishing clobber. It is easy buying Christmas gifts for fishermen. In fishing reports, Top End Tackle Worlds Mal French said two of the shops charter boats had been on extended charters around Evans and Tassie Shoals. They could not fish Tassie Shoal because there was seismic surveys under way, he said. Our boat was not allowed to be near whatever they were doing. But they still caught heaps of fish 55 different species in four days, everything from jewfish to wahoo. They caught some weird and wonderful looking fish out there too. There were a couple of different wrasse and cod that had not been seen before by the crew. They caught small dogtooth tuna but could not fish the drop-offs for the big ones. They got big red emperor, goldband and mackerel. Shoal Bay has been fishing well, and the mouth of Buffalo Creek has been good there have been some metre fish caught and a lot of 90cm fish.
