Charters are tailor made for 7 days duration and after arriving at Seisa and transferring to the vessel On departure the skipper heads to one of the many remote wilderness rivers to commence your exciting adventure (tides and prevailing weather considered).
River systems such as Ducie, Wenlock, Skardon, Jackson, MacDonald, Doughboy, Cotterell and all blue water areas in between.
Upon awaking to a superb breakfast, all that’s left to do is transfer into the skiffs to fish these fabulous rivers.
The tidal estuaries, white sandy beaches, nearshore reefs, rocky headlands and even fresh water rainforest reaches are accessible on good tides and this variety and diversity sure has your head in a spin with quality angling for the lure or fly caster.
The species list mounts as you sample the fine flyfishing we offer – from permit and golden trevally off the beach, to saratoga and sooty grunter way upstream amongst the palm trees. Prime saltwater barra, jacks and king salmon in the tidal zones to monster queenies in the shore gutters. Hordes of longtail tuna offshore, two metre long barracuda & spanish mackerel near the reefs, to all sorts of trevally in between – now that’s quality fishing!
Working both north and south of Weipa, the emphasis is on catch and release, however fresh fish will obviously form a large part of the diet aboard, as will succulent mud-crabs.
This is an all-inclusive, fully catered live aboard operation for a maximum of 8 anglers, so personalized service is guaranteed. 7 days and 6 nights fully guided fishing safaris from Weipa include 7 days fishing, all pick up and transfers from Weipa or Seisia, twin share accommodation, all meals, light refreshments, and quality tackle. Alcohol can be purchased after arriving into Weipa, during the transfer to the vessel.
Fishing is conducted on a twin share charter basis with an experienced guide, and tackle is provided on a replace if lost broken basis (fly fisherman are encouraged to bring their own gear.) Fly fishermen please note that although flies and leader material are available, please bring along your favorite #8 – #10 wt outfit spooled with plenty of backing.
