Far North Fishing Weipa is owned and operated by Kurt Gane and his wife Jaime. Kurt’s lived in Weipa for over 30 years and is the son of an avid Barra fisherman and lure maker. He developed a strong passion for fishing at an early age and has fished all over Cape York, offering extensive knowledge of the waterways around Weipa and the Cape, both fresh and salt. Kurt knows where particular fish feed and congregate, depending on time of year and season, and is experienced in all forms of fishing.
Kurt’s been hosting charters in a part-time capacity for the past 8 years but in 2020, he went full time, launching Far North Fishing Weipa. Kurt and Jaime are ably supported with another local fishing legend of a guide, Kaidyn Williams. They look forward to sharing their knowledge and experience with you, on a premium fishing charter experience.

I love showing off my part of the world and enjoy helping others catch their trophy fish. We specialise in all forms of fishing, guiding everyone from the novice to experienced anglers on customised charters.
The second guide is Kaidyn Williams, who is also a local who has grown up in Weipa and knows the area like the back of his hand. We know which fish are where, at what time of year and how to catch them.
Baiden Sager joins our team in 2021. He was working out of Cairns as a decky and fishing guide before movinng up here for the Cape lifestyle. He loves flicking lures for barras and offshore fishing.
I look after everything behind the scenes, so our guides can focus on the fishing. I am passionate about our community and region and will do my best to ensure that you have an awesome experience.
I have been out with Kurt a few times now in Weipa. He hasn't failed to deliver, on every occasion! No matter what fishing you want to do, Kurt's knowledge he has gained over the 30yrs he has been in Weipa, definitely sets him out from the rest. We will most certainly be back to explore the waters around Weipa and the Cape.
Kurt and Jaime love fishing and the Weipa lifestyle. They’ve travelled and fished around Australia and the world and will tell you, there’s no place like home. It’s their genuine passion and enjoyment of what they do, that led to the idea of making a living out of the sport they love the most. Fishing!
2021 is Kurt’s 9th year of guiding and the second full-time year of operations Far North Fishing Weipa. It’s a family owned and operated business, that employs local people. Charters are customised to suit the interests, style and experience of customers.
