The first in the Weipa Sports Fishing fleet. This 6m plate alloy boat was custom built to fish the Weipa area. Powered by a Honda 150. Fast, dry and capable. Has just received a full refit and is in brand new condition.
Cyclone #1 from Hooker Boats, is a custom-built cyclone which is powered by a 225 Honda. Suitable for both offshore and rivers. It’s hard to describe just how good these boats ride. The perfect fishing machine.
Scale Boat joined the fleet in 2015. Named for her distinctive paint job, she’s another custom-built cyclone and probably the quickest in the fleet. Powered by a 250 Honda, Scale Boat is suitable for all fishing expeditions.
Cyclone #3 was the first of its kind to be used for guiding in Weipa and has just been repowered with a 150 Honda and refitted with new electronics.
The Weipa Sports Fishing boats are a fleet of four (4) fishing weapons. They’ve been custom-built to provide superior performance, stability and passenger comfort on all day and multi-day fishing adventures.
All boats are in immaculate condition with no expense spared. The 4 x 6m Weipa Sports Fishing boats are all fitted with the latest side-imaging technology and GPS. This provides you with more valuable fishing time each trip. How? The side-imaging technology shows exactly what fish are there, and in some cases, even what species and size to cast at, while the GPS pinpoints the favourite and most productive locations, no matter what the conditions.
Weipa Sports Fishing has had a combined total of over 15,000 trouble free hours from our Honda engines, we can’t speak highly enough of them.
All four of the Weipa Sports Fishing boats are 6 metres long and have been custom-built, with every inch of the boats designed for fishing, while not discounting comfort.
Owner / operator Lee Hodgetts has racked up many years fishing out of these boats and has fine-tuned them to suit Weipa’s locations and conditions. They are guaranteed to be comfortable and reliable, getting you to the best fishing locations and home again.
Lee worked with the team at Hooker Boats and Ocean Blue Boats in Cairns, to develop the perfect fishing machines. All powered with Honda Engines to provide unmatched fuel efficiency, power and reliability.
We’re always monitoring the latest marine technology and developments, to ensure we’re providing the best fishing trip possible on our magnificent fishing machines. To that end, we recently installed electronic anchoring spikes on all our boats. These allow us to anchor instantly with the push of a button, dramatically increasing fishing time and enabling fishing in many more locations during the fishing charter.
It would be difficult to find better all-round boats, which are capable of both river and offshore fishing. Our boats are matched by our experienced crew and your fishing guides, who will get the best from the boats, the trip and the fish!
