It was nice to return to a favourite haunt with a bunch of our favourite banana farmers on the first day of our final trip yesterday, and to find the fish waiting. About 50 barra to 92cm on Day 1 and thread fin salmon for dinner. Not much to complain about! ... See MoreSee Less

As the sun sets on our gulf barra season (like what I did there? we are fishing our last week of trips for 2016 atm), we’d like to thank all of our wonderful guests for their company again this year.

We’d also like to thank them for their support of a good cause!

This year we have been fund raising for Weipa Wildlife Care via a bit of fun and games on board with self determined ‘fines’ for undesirable species (catfish and blue salmon were two often featured), rod breakages, lure losses and for “if Pete ever mentions his sore elbow again” etc etc all monies going to WWC.

I’m happy to say that we’ve been able to give a healthy chunk of change to the fund to support Kristy and her team.

If anyone else has the time and inclination to dig into their pockets I’m sure that Kristy would be extremely grateful. Kristy (in addition to being of fine fish stock herself) is forced every year to use her own money and then some to pay for the simple things like food and medicine for the animals in care, as well as freighting them to Cairns when required as there is no vet in Weipa. Kristy is also a great support to team KEKOA and has met many of you over the years on transfers and even the odd wildlife rescue. I’ve put a link to the WWC Go Fund me page in the comments if you are able to support!
