The Glyde, located approx 5km west of the lodge, is fed by the infamous Arafura Swamp, which is a magnificent breeding area for the barramundi.
The main target is the elusive barramundi along with threadfin salmon and an abundance of mud crabs in the tributaries.  
The Woolen, which is located approx 5km to the east of the lodge, is a predominately tidal river. Framed by rocky headlands with the mouth being 90ft deep in areas, it opens up into numerous mangrove and rock bar lined estuaries. Target species include barramundi, mangrove jacks, around the mouth the pelagic species dominate with giant trevally, queen fish and northern blue tuna. 
Reef fishing species include golden snapper, coral trout, black jewfish just to name a few...  
In 2014 the lodge will be running 4 x 6.2mtr brand new Bar Crusher boats with 150hp Suzuki motors. These boats will fish maximum 3 per boat. They will be in 2D Marine survey which will now fall under the Australian Marine guidelines.
