Hooked on Palmerston


City of Palmerston’s recreational catch and release barramundi competition embraces the Top End’s fishing lifestyle right here in our local lakes
The last round of the competition saw numerous winners, taking home vouchers to spend at local businesses. 

Although the competition is over, there are still plenty of barra left in our lakes and fishing is permitted.
Check out the fishing tips below.

It is important to remain Crocwise around our waterways and ensure your fishing gear is clear of any weed before leaving the lake.
