Papua Fishing

Papua Fishing specializes in sport fishing adventures on the saltwaters and freshwaters of Indonesia. They will take you to some of the best spots in this beautiful and diverse country, in terms of nature and the fish species. You can catch a trophy sized Papuan Black Bass, a Spot Tail Bass, a Barramundi, Golden Saratoga and more species. Come catch your dream fish with this crew!

Your guide is Captain Teddy who also owns the company and is a passionate fisherman. He has fished the remote waters of Papua since he was 8 years old, and has learned the best techniques to catch the many species that call these waters home. He will teach you the same techniques.

Whether you are looking to fight a tackle busting fish like Giant Trevally, Tarpon, and Barramundi, or you’re more into catching something to eat like a Tripletail, Snapper, King Mackerel or a Bass, this is the place to do it. The Papuan waters are known to be among the toughest freshwaters in the world, providing the Wild West experience in sportfishing.

Papua Fishing crew will take you fishing on two 10 meter boats, powered by 2 x40 HP Yamaha outboard engines. They each have GPS, fishfinders, and wireless trolling motors.

The lodging trip will include 2 night’s accommodation in a 3* hotel, accommodation at the campsite complete with showers, mosquito netted huts, toilet, electricity and an icebox, and return economy airfare Kuala Lumpur-West Papua. 20 kg check-in luggage per person only. Airline rates apply for luggage exceeding this limit. You will have visitor permits issued by Police and Immigration departments, and Aboriginal fishing permits.

The Liveaboard trips will include accommodation on a 90-foot custom built deck boat, complete with 6 rooms: 2 double rooms, 3 single rooms, 1 bunk bedroom, 3 toilets, 2 showers, a sundeck, and a kitchen onboard the mothership. Satellite TV available, powered by three 8 cylinder Caterpillar engines.

About the Charter Operator

Teddy Nugroho Pamungkas
Kaimana, Indonesia
I was born and raised in Papua, and have spent 8 years exploring many remote areas here. Papua has regions that hide so many solid fish, and it feels amazing for myself to share this with others and let them have this experience. You will fish with me in remote areas and catch trophy size fish as your personal record. I really fell in loves with Papuan Spottail Bass and Papuan Black Bass, as both of these fish had taken me exploring deep into the remote river systems.
