Weipa Live Bait Fishing

A bit of old school live baiting is a very effective method of enticing our creek species. Not much can refuse the kick of a live mullet placed in the right spot. So, if you enjoy putting your feet up and sipping on a coldie, but are still looking for a good rod bending session, then this is for you. If you are not sure on the best times to come, or want to secure prime time fishing, contact Wade on 0409 063 361.


Frontier Fishing Charters provide epic, liveaboard fishing expeditions to some of the best locations in northern Australia. The diversity of species is mind blowing, not to mention their size.

Live bait fishing offers the best of both worlds. You can chill out with a cold one, while your live bait does all the work, when the fish are on the bite that’s when you can get up and get working.

Our Weipa liveaboard fishing charters are for a maximum of nine (9) guests for a minimum of four (4) days. Our mothership the Kerra Lyn is well equipped to get to some great offshore locations, while our three (3) tenders can get right into creeks and estuaries.

We provide: hot and cold breakfast; fresh lunch on the tenders and mothership; dinner and desert prepared by the chef in our galley. All accommodation is in air-conditioned cabins and there’s loads of indoor and outdoor communal spaces, to relax and unwind.


Liveaboard live bait fishing trips are a great way to catch some iconic Cape York species. Frontier Fishing Charters has an experienced crew of fishing folk, who have been working these waters for years.

We know the best places to catch the big fish, whether you’re into live bait fishing, working the lure or casting fly. Frontier Fishing Charters will put you in the right place, at the right time to make some serious fishing memories.

What can you expect to catch with live bait up here? Some fine fighting (and eating) fish. We’re talking barramundi, mangrove jack, grunter, king salmon and more. Bring your own rods and gear, or take advantage of our fully stocked tackle room. NB: If you are using our gear and it is lost or damaged, you will need to replace it at your expense.

You can also combine live bait fishing with other forms of fishing, including lure and/or fly fishing for the ultimate experience. Contact Wade on 0409 063 361 for more information.
