Weipa Sports Fishing guide Lee Hodgetts was born and bred in Cairns. He spent his early years fishing the local rivers for mangrove jack and barramundi, before heading out to sea on the big game fishing boats to chase the giant black marlin.
Lee headed over to Weipa in 2006 and continued his love of sports fishing in what is arguably the best fishing destination in Australia. Lee lives and breathes fishing. With a passion to share that with others, he decided to start his own business, Weipa Sports Fishing. Today, he is dedicated to giving you the fishing trip of a lifetime, whether you’re a novice or an experienced angler.

Lee Hodgetts has fishing in his blood. His parents were involved in Far North Queensland’s commercial fishing and tourism industry for many years.
At the age of 8, Lee got his first boat. Three years later, his career as a professional fishing guide commenced when Greg Bethune of ‘Carpentaria Seafaris’, asked him to guide fishing expeditions during the school holidays. At that time, Lee was targeting fish such as Permit and Golden Trevally on the flats, big Spanish Mackeral on the outside, and of course Barramundi up the creek.
Before starting his own business, Lee worked with many of the Far North’s fishing legends including Ross Fenn, on the ‘De Ja Vu’. He also did liveaboard charters to the Archer River. His desire to provide guests with the best fishing trip possible, saw Lee start Weipa Sports Fishing in 2010.
Weipa Sports Fishing has four (4) fishing guides on staff, who are all committed to delivering outstanding customer service, on each and every trip. The guides are young, but offer a lifetime of experience.
Pairing enthusiasm with professionalism, the Weipa Sports Fishing guides have a wealth of recreational, commercial and professional experience. They live and breathe fishing and when they’re not guiding, they’re out fishing themselves.
The boys at Weipa Sports Fishing will work hard to deliver the very best fishing trip possible. For more information on Lee, Wade, Jack and Josh check out our Fishing Guides page or give us a call on 0431 427 129.
