Weipa is a fisherman's dream. It is located on the eastern side of the Gulf of Carpentaria, and about two-thirds of the way up the western shore of Cape York. The estuarine and offshore waters adjacent to Weipa are home to possibly the most prolific and diverse range of fish species in tropical Australia, which makes every day a new adventure.

The Rivers and Creeks are prime locations for a number of trophy species including Barramundi, Mangrove Jacks, King & Blue Salmon, Finger Mark, Queenfish and Trevally.

Weipa's reef fishing is nothing short of spectacular, within a couple of kilometers from the beach you can catch Coral Trout, Red Emperor and Finger Mark. You will quite likely hook a variety of other monsters which will probably never see the light of day. Live bait is a great way to fish these areas with jigging and luring producing great results.
