The road has been graded and a lot of the bad sections of the road have been re-sheeted. More re-sheeting is to commence between July and September 2017. Tenders are out for commencement of those pending works to occur before the start of the next wet. A big thanks to the government for taking action on the matter.

Bondi Vet comes to Leaders Creek

July 20th, 2015

Some of you might have seen the Bondi Vet program on Saturday 11th July. Dr Chris Brown and his team made a visit to Leaders Creek to have a look at our resident Sea Eagle that had been shot with an arrow. They were not able to catch her and remove the arrow but it was good to have some advise on her condition. She seems to be managing ok and we are hopeful that this remains the case. She is still spotted occasionally near the mouth of Leaders Creek.

A very big thank-you to Dr Chris Brown and team!

Also many thanks to;

Peter Barnes (Territory Guided Fishing) for your work behind the scenes. Your time and the use of your boat was very much appreciated.

Tom Nichols and croc management team who were quick to capture a nuisance croc at the Leaders Creek boat ramp.

Mooka Dan (Brother) for your help, not only on the day, but during your entire stay.

Brian, Peter and the very tall 釘ondi Vet Dr Chris Brown. Dr Chris Brown & Tom Nichols removing the Croc.

e aware of the Crocs!

September 1st, 2014

You must be mindful of crocodiles at any Top End waterway. It痴 easy to become complacent when you have been to the same spot many times without sighting a big croc. Please always be aware that they are about. This 4.1m Croc, weighing approx. 500kg was removed from Leaders Creek Boat Ramp on Sunday 31st August. Thanks to Tom Nichols and his team, including Leaders Creek staff and campers.

 

DANGER! - Another 斗arger croc was sighted at the ramp on the same day. All ramp users are urged to use extreme caution. Do not enter or stand near the water痴 edge. The trap will stay in an attempt to trap the other croc. It痴 likely that this situation is a result of dumping of bait scraps & fish carcasses at the ramp by fisho痴 who have no respect or consideration for others.

 

 

For the safety and consideration of all ramp users, please do not deposit any bait scraps or fish carcasses near the ramp, or place crab pots in the vicinity of the ramp. Also, when planning a trip, keep in mind that it痴 harder to get your boat back on your trailer when the tide is low. Always come in with enough water so that you don稚 have to wade in the water to hook up your boat.

 

There痴 plenty of great fishing to be had. Respect the local wildlife and their habitat. Be responsible and take all due care.

Sea Eagle Update

August 6th, 2014

These photos were taken by Brian of the White Breasted Sea Eagle swooping down to retrieve a fish. He, along with other fisho痴  regularly feed her to help her gain her confidence and keep her healthy and strong. Brian has observed that the arrow sometimes deflects in the water and at times hinders  her efforts to pick up a meal, but she is a persistent girl and he rarely returns to base without seeing her fly away with her family after a good feed. On a positive note... these photos show that the arrow is lodged in her leg, hence her survival. She has also been successful in rearing 2 young chicks, which are now fully fledged and can often be seen flying around with mum and dad, or perched alongside... on their favorite dining room tree. Brian was nearly successful in catching her 4 weeks ago with the assistance of Malcolm , Samantha and Kim. He will continue his endeavor to see that she is captured and attended to. Thank-you to all the people who have offered their time to assist with the rescue.

覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧沫-覧覧覧覧覧覧-

How could anybody do this?

June 6th, 2014

This beautiful White Breasted Sea Eagle has been observed for over a month at Leaders Creek with an arrow lodged in her body.  I知 disgusted that *somebody could do this, and I strongly encourage anybody with any information to contact Parks and Wildlife regarding the matter on 8995 5054.

I have assisted Wildlife rangers on one rescue mission in my boat to capture the big girl, but our attempt was unsuccessful. I have since made more attempts and intend to persevere until she is captured and attended to.  She seems to be coping well under the circumstances with her partner protecting her and helping her feed. 

This pair, (they usually pair for life-for 30 to 40 years) have been territorial to the Leaders Creek water ways for over 10 years, according to Parks and Wildlife. They are habitual feeders in this region and it is always entertaining to watch their aerobic flight displays. Many local fisho痴 as tourists visiting from interstate and overseas have had the pleasure of seeing these beautiful birds in the creek and often capture the moments on camera and comment on their beauty and awesomeness.

It is concerning that the nesting season is approaching and, as you can imagine, it will be difficult for this bird to sit on her nest with the arrow protruding from her. I have sought and received some assistance from two business痴 so far, in our quest to capture this magnificent bird and have her attended to as quickly as possible. Please contact me on 8983 5009 if you can offer any assistance by way of your time, equipment, or financial assistance relative to rescue cost痴.

Thanks to the following business for their assistance so far:

Craig痴 Fishing Warehouse

NTAP PTY LTD

and thanks to Noel and Nathan for their time and help.

We値l keep this blog updated with any progress on the rescue.

Thanks and regards,

Brian

Kimmie Mychas caught this 122cm Jewie at Leaders Creek mouth on Thursday. It weighed in at 33lb (14.9kg). She landed it on a Barra rod after chasing it round the creek in an effort not to get spooled. Well done Kimmie and the Viking!!... They also landed a Salmon and plenty of nice Muddies.

Our next step to improving the base is to add a 260,000 litre water tank. This will help cater for an increase in water consumption with larger visitor numbers, as well as allowing some gardens to be established.

A very big thank-you to Brett O達ryan from Contour Australia for the fantastic job he did preparing the pad. A great job!... and just in the nick of time - getting that big truck out before the rain set in again.

Watch out for low tide.

After 10 years as Lord of the Ramp at Leaders Creek, Chris Edwards is retiring and appointing a successor. Brian Bulner will receive his official appointment as the new Lord of the Ramp Sunday 26th February 2012 at a farewell BBQ held at Leaders Creek Fishing Base.

He has also made it clear that he won稚 miss the early awakenings at 5 in the morning.

New owners, Brian and Ann, would like to thank Chris and Deneise for their assistance in the transition process and wish them all the best for the future. Brian and Ann extend a warm welcome to existing customers and are looking forward to settling in and meeting you on your upcoming visits.

All are welcome to farewell Chris and Deneise 3pm Sunday 26th Feb.
