1. About our Gulf barramundi fishing options.

2. What to expect on our ex- Weipa barra fishing trips.

Join our experienced team who can put your on the fish!

Luke has been barramundi fishing all his life and is a long-term barra guide in the marlin off season.  His best day guiding produced 9 fish over a metre in a single session – including 5 over 1.20m!!

April through June

Barramundi and sport fishing

We are already booking for next year! If you are interested in some time at the top end and would like some more information please contact us now. We’d love to have you join us on board!


Weipa is known as the barramundi capital of Queensland and is our launching pad into the more remote areas of the Gulf, as far as the McDonald, Jackson and Skardon rivers to the north and the Kendall and Holroyd Rivers to the south and including the mighty Wenlock, Ducie and Archer rivers. This time of year, coming after the wet, is a truly magical time to fish this region and the height of the Gulf barra season. And the weather is mostly perfect.


In addition to the fabulous barramundi fishing, the rivers produce an array of other sportfish including, Mangrove Jack, Salmon, Fingermark, Estuary Cod, Tarpon, not to mention tasty mud crabs. The nearby reefs and shoals are an amazing light tackle sport fishery, home to tuna, mackeral, queenfish and large mouth nannygai and fingermark. Walk the beaches targeting Golden and Giant Trevally and the elusive Permit. The sailfishing potential is also mostly unexplored.


Fly-in, fly-out from Weipa – only a one hour flight from Cairns. Arrive on board in the afternoon for an evening departure which puts you on the best spot for a start to fishing the very first morning.  We can also arrange car transfers to selected destinations.


With KEKOA 56 providing fully airconditioned luxurious comfort as mothership, barra fishing is from two 4.1 metre fiberglass CrossXCountry tenders.


Maximum of 4 anglers as a single group.
