March - June is a great season for targeting all estuary species, which includes but is not limited to barramundi, threadfin, salmon, blue salmon, golden snapper, mangrove jacks black spotted and gold spotted cod. It is also a great time to target our blue water species such as Mackerel, tuna, cobia, golden snapper, queen fish, coral trout and a large variety of trevally species: GT, golden, bludger, tea leaf and brassy trevally are just a few.
September - October is a great season for targeting barramundi.
September - December are the months when permit are found in numbers on the beaches north and south of the Weipa township. Plus all the other species listed above are available to catch this time of year.
It is best to avoid fishing in these waters in December/January as the winds are unpredictable and often strong.
We provide custom charters based on your ideal fishing holiday. Catering to all levels of fishing experience and focused on targeted fishing as required, they are able to fulfil most requests. As each charter is fully customisable, we can easily adapt the schedule to suit the bite and the conditions. We can arrange an early continental breakfast and be on the water by daylight, and be home earlier so you can enjoy a relaxing afternoon.
If you want to try something different, we also have a helicopter at our disposal. Take a trip north or south depending on the time of year and sight cast off the beach for permit, thread fin salmon, barramundi and queen fish.
The Beachfront Lodge is a 2 story complex with 5 individual rooms. The rooms are all well presented with ensuite, LCD televisions plus tea and coffee facilities.
Once you land in Weipa, hand yourself over to great fishing, quality food, cold beer and the best fishing guides in the business! You couldn’t pick a better month to land some very big barramundi!
