“I would like to express my heartfelt congratulations to Weipa Fishing Adventures for providing me and my 4 teenage children with the most fabulous Fishing Adventure experience of a lifetime!
My first tentative email to WFA to ask them what the prices were and what that included was met with a prompt, clear and concise reply. It was important for me to know where I stood with such a big family and to have all costs clarified and the best place for us to stay at in Weipa.
We enjoyed 2 boats with 2 experienced guides. Dave and Michael shared their experience with us all to help us improve our game. Mind you it was a very patient guide that had me on their boat. I am now an expert on getting my own lure out of the trees!
Even when fish were smashing up our gear, Dave and Michael patiently and calmly rigged us up again and again. They untangled this one and encouraged that one and firmly chastised another one on losing a big Barra because the rod wasn’t held up quite the right way.
We are richer for this fishing adventure and have very colourful memories of the jokes played by Newmo and his ‘fly’ prank. It was particularly annoying when totally engrossed in the sumptuous lunch and refreshments that WFA provides.
I sincerely recommend Weipa Fishing Adventures for one and all.”— KDC, Townsville Australia
“I’ve fished all over the world with numerous guides and Weipa is my pick of them all, with great diversity easy access and great company from Dave. I now come back to Weipa and Dave in preference of going anywhere else”— Greg Newham, Sydney Australia
“I used to drive to Weipa every year for a weeks fishing with my own boat until I met Dave. Now I fly up 2 – 3 times a year and fish with Dave. I catch bigger fish, have a better time and save the wear and tear on my 4WD and boat. Dave is certainly makes the experience memorable with his sense of humour and the extra effort he goes to to make sure you catch fish.”— Steve McLean, Townsville Australia
“Since meeting Dave at the Weipa boat ramp 5 years ago I now fish regularly with him. His knowledge of the local area is unparalleled as is his commitment to ensuring you have a good trip, most days finish when it’s too dark to see.”— Denis Lapico, Townsville Australia
“Just a short note to thank you for a great time fishing in Weipa. The photo you took of me dropping that Golden Trevally came out perfectly. Don’t forget to cook the Barra on the beach for some of your more deserving clients. I will definitely bring my son to Weipa for a fishing trip………….as soon as I can organise it………..probably next year.”— Mark Luchetti
“David, Just a thank you note from the crew who went out with Adam and Marcus for the day and a half ! The men for a full day the ladies for half.! they all had a great time The ladies were very impressed with the way the lads tried so hard to get them some fish ! with some success to I might add. keep up the good work as we would like to get up there and do it again some time. Cheers and thanks again!”— Ray Hollis
“Hi Dave, the boys and I had a great trip and would like to thank you ,Marcus ,and Adam for the time and dedication you all put into making sure that we had a great Weipa Fishing Adventure. from the feedback I’ve received it would appear that most of the crew will be returning next year”— Walter Kornberger
“Hi Dave, Just a note of thanks for sharing your fantastic fishing environment with us . We had a great time and enjoyed the experience very much.Your friendly attitude and professional approach to guiding made our visit very memorable. The fishing was fantastic and the guide was great , what else could we ask? We are already thinking of next year and maybe we’ll return, contact you later on that. Thanks again.”— Ray & Emma
“Hi Dave, this is just a special thanks for a great experience my wife and I had when fishing with you and Marcus at Weipa. The both of you had so much patience putting up with us in the beginning, but it was what you guys taught us I would like to rave about. We came away with heaps more knowledge and the skills required for our next fishing adventure. You guys are not just great fisherman, you’s are fun to be with and have fantastic personalities which made us feel at home. We caught heaps of fish, and the memories will stay with us forever. I thoroughly recommend a trip to Weipa with Dave Newman and his partner Marcus.”— Billy & Maureen
“Dave – Thanks to you & Michael I had a great couple of days. Big thrill hooking up the 92cm barra. It was my first trip with a professional set-up, and Michael was a real Pro with his skill, assistance and local knowledge. The boats & equipment were excellent. A really memorable experience. Thanks again to you & Michael.”— Paul Eggers
