Welcome to Alure Fishing Charters NT. My name is Gerard Wilkie, the owner operator of the business. After 30 plus years experience fishing the Northern Territory and gaining some fantastic knowledge as a Commercial Skipper with two different successful fishing charter companies here in Darwin, I decided it was time to start my own fishing charter business to cater for the growing demand of people looking for a magic day on the water. I look forward to sharing my knowledge and experience with you and taking you on a tour that showcases the topends beautiful scenery, wildlife & the chance of catching the fish of a life time and the added benefit of seeing our vibrant city from the waterway of Darwin Harbour. Or you might like to select a tailored fishing trip to another NT destination and get out of Darwin to experience what the NT has to offer.
I'm a professional photographer by trade and previously owned my own photography studio in Ballarat Victoria for ten years prior to moving to Darwin in 1996 with my young family as we looked forward to leaving the cold winters of Ballarat. I started out as a Press Photographer in Geelong with the local newspaper then moved on to studio photography in Geelong, then Melbourne and Ballarat where I opened my own business. After my first fishing trip to Darwin in 1989, I was literally hooked on the place and couldn't wait to get back each year to escape the cold Victorian winters and then making the move to Darwin to become a local and experience the true Territory lifestyle. Over the last thirty years I have travelled all over the top end, fishing all of the major rivers and most of the NT coastline. I can help plan your trip by recommending the right time of the year based on what type of fishing you would like to experience and then select the right days based on tides, local conditions and what locations are fishing the best as you get closer to your booking date.
