Weipa Sports Fishing
Whether it’s casting a fly on a crystal clear flat, throwing a lure up the creek or soaking a live bait for a big barra – Weipa Sports Fishing can put you in the right place at the right time!
Let your fishing guide, Lee Hodgetts, take you to his “special spots”, and enjoy the fishing trip of a lifetime.
Weipa offers an incredible variety of lure fishing options all of which revolve around the tides.
High tide can require accurate casting amongst the mangrove roots, on the flats, and on particular fallen snags up side creeks.
High tide also brings with it the option of casting lures and flies along the rocky headlands and beaches, where Barramundi, Blue Salmon, Queenfish and various other species can often be found.
Personally, my favourite form of lure fishing around Weipa is top water fishing. This is simply because you get to see, and usually hear, the bite from the barra or threadfin salmon.
Weipa Sports Fishing Guided Fishing Charters can offer a wide variety of fly fishing options and situations. Weipa Sports Fishing and Fly Fishing can tailor a daily experience to satisfy the novice fly fisherman right through to the expert.
On any given day you could find yourself stalking the crystal clear flats – sight casting to golden trevally and cobia that cruise behind manta rays, or casting to blue bastards and barramundi lurking around rocky outcrops. Also, there are cruising queenfish, GTs, permit and many others. More recently the elusive milkfish have been taking a fly.
The 6 meter state of the art alloy boat was built by the team at Ocean Blue exclusively to fish the Weipa area, powered by a Honda 150hp and all the latest electronics.
The boat is fast, dry and extremely stable. Weather casting a fly on a crystal clear flat or lure fishing up the creek this vessel is more than capable
