The Humbug Crew

We look after you!

Meet the crew

The best fishing experience in Australia requires the best team. Luckily, we can guarantee our crew are some of the most enthusiastic, experienced fishing experts out there.

Owned and operated by husband and wife team, Scott and Lorna, Humbug Fishing Charters is fuelled by a couple with a massive investment in customer experience. For over 25 years they have established deep connections with Traditional Land Owners and those that share their passion and drive.

Scott Wauchope

Director, Guide, Skipper

Scott is the driving force and creator of Humbug Fishing Charters. His passion for creating unique tailored experience was born from an identified gap in this field. He saw a need for Fishing Charters to become personalised, to ensure each person has an exceptional, memorable experience.

Scott is a qualified fishing tour operator. He has over 25 years of experience fishing in some of the most beautiful places in the Top End and in The Kimberley. He and his wife, Lorna, have explored some of the most remote fishing areas in the Northern Territory.

He is always on hand to answer any questions, but can also take a back seat to allow you to enjoy the breathtaking landscape. His knowledge of outback waters and the Northern Territory coast is extraordinary.

Lorna Wauchope


Lorna is the first person you will encounter on your Humbug Fishing experience. We firmly believe our customers should speak to a professional from their very first enquiry. Lorna’s 25 years of experience in fishing means she can answer any questions you may have and give you expert advice from the first phone call.

Lorna is best at organising your fishing trip dates, with a friendly, prompt and professional service. A huge part of the experience we offer, is in speaking with Lorna so she can tailor your experience. This is why you won’t find an online booking system on our website. We want to know all your goals and expectations for your trip so we can tailor something perfect for you. By speaking directly to Lorna, she will immediately start work on creating your unique outback fishing experience.

Lorna and Scott have been married for 25 years and share a passion for delivering a high-quality adventure. Lorna ensures this by making sure everything runs smoothly as possible for everyone from Humbug Fishing’s onshore office while Scott travels out with our groups.



Bug aka Chris Campbell, has fished the Darwin Remote fishing waters for many years, meeting Scott and Lorna 20 years ago
whilst both working as tradies by day, but made fisherman by night and all weekend.

Now living in Dundee Bug knows the waters of the remote Territory area really well, he also is very knowledgeable of the waters we fish and full or energy, and a great personality.

Bug is a qualified Guide.


Paige Watteau

A born and bred Territory girl, you’ll find Paige fishing with her mates most weekends.

She has completed her coxswains’ certificate and is a very keen angler.

Paige joins Humbug Fishing on many a charter and adds an extra, most welcome, hand while gaining her sea time.

Her enthusiasm for fishing, fun personality and hard-work ethic help us provide our groups with an extra special experience.
