Jarbu Lodge - Australia

A small privately run lodge that caters for a maximum of nine guests at a time. Owner/Head Guide Rob Hunt will fish you 20 hours if you want! An airstrip serviced by a commercial airline with seven flights a week from Darwin. A backyard with a wetland of hundreds of acres and wild Timor ponies running free. Private land with sole rights for fishing that stretches for miles and miles. As well as a large coastal area on Croker Island, we have also obtained fishing rights to a number of bays on the mainland. The first of these bays is only 20 minutes away with the others an extra half-hour. Because these areas have been seldom visited before, we are still discovering new hot spots on a regular basis. The fishing is what you would expect at such a remote and newly fished location. Owner/Guide run operations always create enthusiasm and professionalism, and this operation is no exception to the rule. Species are numerous. In one day alone our group managed to capture 22 of these lure crunching species. We can target the species that suits the clients... G.Ts that can be unstoppable, Queenfish in cricket score numbers, Spanish Mackerel that may spool you and Mangrove Jacks to test the limits of your line. Whatever the species that turns you on. Barramundi of all sizes caught along beaches and rocky outcrops are not to be missed. Only limited numbers will be able to visit Croker Island/Jarbu Lodge. This is a good problem when you want to maintain and protect an area of such vast fish supplies and an unspoilt environment. Lodge: Built approximately 100 metres from the beach and with scenic wetlands with an abundance of birdlife 500 metres from the back door, this lodge has a unique setting. Accommodation is in fan cooled or air conditioned echo-tourism bungalows built on a platform which will allow ample ventilation and sea breezes through the many trees and plants that surround the lodge. The dining and relaxing area is also on a raised platform with insect proof mesh walls which provide both relief from the heat and astonishing views. There are also balconies at the front and back of the dining room. Boats: Custom built 4.7 metre and 6 metre Top Enders to suit the area. Full safety gear, spares and first aid kits. Quiet, efficient Yamaha 50 hp four stroke motors. Transport: Croker Island airstrip is 5 minutes from Jarbu Lodge. Fly Tiwi Air services fly to Croker daily with flights direct from Darwin or via Goulburn Island. Flight time is one or two hours depending whether Goulburn is on the flight routing. If numbers justify, private air charters can be arranged.

Gillhams Fishing Resort - Thailand

Gillhams Fishing Resorts is a family-run business, and both Sean and I are experienced big fish anglers. Benz, who is my partner, is in control of the day-to-day running of the resort, and she is assisted by Noi, Sean's partner. Together with Benz, we traveled Thailand in search of the perfect location for a fishing resort, finally deciding on Krabi province due to its natural beauty and popularity as a family destination, but it took us a further six months to find the perfect location. We purchased our land in 2006, and then began the daunting task of the excavation of a nine-acre lake. This was a frustrating task but, after sorting through various idiots, we finally found a local contractor to supply experienced staff and top quality equipment. Without two local brothers, Den and Deol, this lake would not have been dug. Various engineers and site managers had failed, but I would recommend these two to anyone. While the lake was being dug, we rented some lakes from our good friends the Chow family, and our lake was complete by March 2007. Benz' family we were introduced to Mr. Egg, one of Thailand’s top fish suppliers. Mr. Egg travels the length and breadth of Thailand purchasing specimen sized fish for us. Some days he drives over 700 kilometers chasing rumours of big fish. If the rumour is true he will purchase the fish for us and transports it back to Gillhams Fishing Resorts. Many times poor Egg wastes his time and money chasing false rumours, and he is another man we are indebted to. All our red tail catfish, Mekongs and Chao Phraya catfish come from a fish farm near Bangkok, owned by Thailand’s most respected fish farmer, Mr. Toe. He is without exception regarded as the no. 1 fish breeder in Thailand, and his fish are the most sought after fish in the country. Toe has become a loyal and trusted friend, and his advice and assistance with planning our fish’s environment has been invaluable. Without these people we would have given up our dream but with their help, dedication, generosity and knowledge, the lake is now complete and stocked with some of the biggest fish in the world, ready for our clients to enjoy some of the best freshwater fishing in the world in probably what is one of the most beautiful locations in Asia. We are looking forward to make your dreams come real. Our commitment is to give all our guests the holiday of a lifetime in a beautiful, safe and friendly surrounding. Thank you for reading this introduction. We hope to see you soon. Stuart, Sean, Benz and Noi.
