Fish’s Fly & Sportfishing in Weipa, which is a five hour flight from Brisbane, boasts a fleet of fast, safe and comfortable vessels and a proven track record that’s reflected in a long list of repeat clients and glowing testimonials. No operator is better equipped to guide you to the memorable action here than Alan “Fish” Philliskirk and his team. The shallow, warm waters of the Gulf of Carpentaria that separates Cape York from Arnhem Land in far northern Australia, is a tropical fishing paradise. Up here the diversity of fish is only matched by the range of locations. Hook barramundi, saratoga and sooty grunter in jungle-lined rivers or permit, queenfish and golden trevally on the sand flats. You’ll find snapper, jacks and groupers on the reefs light tackle game fishing for big mackerel, cobia and sailfish just offshore.
