Create your own stories

Scott and Lorna have shared lots of adventures along the way and have many stories to tell.

They’ve lived in remote parts of the Top End for the last 25 years, including 5 years in the indigenous community of Wadeye on the west coast of Darwin and Maningrida in Arnhem Land on east coast of Darwin.

Scott’s passion for the remote outdoors and his desire to find the ultimate fishing experiences, have been key in the development of the Humbug Fishing experience.

Scott and Lorna have fished, explored and enjoyed most of the Top End Coastline, including time in the Kimberley’s at Kulumbaroo.

Humbug Fishing is an Australian tourism accredited business all their boats are certified to current Australian Survey requirements.

We look forward to taking you on one of our many fishing adventures in the outback parts of the Top End

‘Our aim is to give you a rewarding and memorable getaway with professional, friendly and high quality standard from beginning to End’ – Scott and Lorna
