WEIPA FISHING EQUIPMENT – ONLY THE BEST FOR OUR CLIENTS

Humminbird Australia

The crew at Weipa Sports Fishing want to optimize the fishing opportunities for their clientele when they visit. That’s why they use custom designed boats fitted with the very latest technology as their work platforms. To further streamline the operation, their Honda outboards are serviced in-house by guide Jack, a fully qualified Honda marine mechanic.

By offering clients cutting edge equipment, operated by local guides with years of experience who are prepared to go that extra mile when things get tough, Weipa Sports Fishing seeks to offer the very best in customer service to the fishing community.

THE GEAR YOU NEED

GPS/SONAR. Marine electronics is developing at a cracking pace so it’s vitally important that the latest in technology is used if clients are to be given the best chance of catching fish. Weipa Sports Fishing is currently running Humminbird Solix Series units, Helix 12 Chirp Mega Si GPS G2N 12.1inch screen models featuring GPS Chartplotting with ContourXD Maps, MEGA Side Imaging, CHIRP Digital Sonar, and DualBeam PLUS features.

Side scanning sonar combined with high definition screen shots that can often allow the identification of specific species is fast transforming the ability of fishers to find the most productive spots so it is vital that guides have this technology at their fingertips. These latest Humminbird units allow Weipa Sports Fishing to offer their clients the very best in navigation and sonar capabilities.

TALON POWER POLE ANCHOR SYSTEM.
Many fishing situations require an anchor to be deployed and if this happens a number of times during the fishing day, a sizeable chunk of fishing time can be lost. Weipa Sports Fishing is always looking for innovative ways to maximize fishing opportunities so fitting Talon Power Poles to all their boats has been a great step in that direction.

The Talon Poles are fitted to the transom and can be extended into the bottom in up to 12 feet of water. Anchoring is as easy as pushing a button and happens smoothly and quickly. These sturdy units allow precision anchoring in seconds without the often noisy and muddy exercise that is usually part of setting the pick.

FOR THE BEST FISHING

MINN KOTA RIPTIDE I-PILOT ELECTRIC MOTOR. Once you fish with one of these Minn Kota ‘virtual anchors’, you’ll never want to toss a real anchor over the side again! That once time consuming and often difficult job of positioning your boat over a wreck or reef has been replaced by a system so simple that the boat can be precisely maneuvered, again, at the touch of a button.

Weipa Sports Fishing uses the very latest from Minn Kota, the saltwater ready, bow mounted Riptide Ulterra i-Pilot Link available in shaft lengths up to 72 inches (6 feet).

These units can be operated by either a foot pedal or hand held device and will hold their position even in a moderate swell once the inbuilt GPS unit is locked on. These electric motors can also be programmed to execute a trolling pattern or move to a set distance away from an anchor point.

All this means more fishing time for clients and more ‘finding fish’ time for the guides. It’s definitely a ‘win win’ situation for everybody! Happy faces at the end of the day means Weipa Sports Fishing is doing its job properly.

HONDA MOTORS. All craft are powered by the latest Honda outboards ensuring that travelling time, even to more remote locations, is minimized, making the best use of your available time.
