Episode 579: Weipa Sailfish With Ben Bright
Weipa is definitely a land of opportunity for sportfishers. Barra may well be the first species that comes to mind, or maybe permit, threadfin, fingermark...... there are so many. But unless you've been keeping an eye on this northern destination, billfish may or may not make the list. The Gulf of Carpentaria offers some exceptional opportunities to chase billfish, and sailfish in particular. Weipa sportfishing guide Ben "Notso" Bright is super keen on targeting sails, whether it's with clients or on his days off. He reckons the key is recent intel, meaning the more boats on the water chasing them the more everyone will catch. So as you'd imagine, Notso is more than happy to share some tips!
