Reef fishing around Groote Eylandt is as good as it gets—anywhere.
Thanks to a unique marine environment surrounding the island, a series of well-developed coral reef systems provide shelter and food for abundant stocks of reef species.
The waters around Groote are teeming with:
- golden snapper
- mangrove Jack
- coral trout
- red emperor
- saddletail snapper
- crimson snapper
Trolling lures along reef shelves is fantastic for beginners and just as exciting for seasoned fishos.
Your guide will keep a couple of these superb-eating species, and you’ll meet with the lodge’s chef to discuss your tastes and options for preparing your catch for dinner.
