I cannot believe it took me so many years to get to Weipa in Far North Queensland for a fish but in 2021 it finally happened.
I have fished so many parts of the Cape York coast that I wasn't really expecting anything too different but I was wrong. What an incredible fishery. You can pretty much chase anything you can imagine from Blue Bastards in the shallows on fly to Red Emperor in the deeper reefs to monster Barra up some of the remote creeks. This place has it all and is stunningly beautiful to top it off.
I fish with Kurt from Far North Fishing and on our first visit we did a mother ship trip to the Love River. We literally caught hundreds of fish including monster Jacks, Threadies and Barra with some incredible top water sessions in the shallows.
Each day was its own adventure and because Kurt has lived and fished in the area his entire life he really knew where to go, which makes a big difference when you only have a week to explore such a vast destination.
I often get asked where my favourite place to fish is and let me tell you, Weipa is not far from the top of the list. I love the place.
