This region is truly spectacular!

Just mention what you’d like to do, what type of fish you’d like to target and we’ll work together and make a plan. All of our extended fishing charters are tailor-made to each group providing unique experiences all-round.  

Extended Mothership charters leave from Darwin and include our 2.7-metre tender boats. We leave late afternoon so you can wake up to the beautiful fishing spots, barely noticing the travel time. This departure time can be flexible to accommodate visitors flying into Darwin.

Waking up after a comfortable air conditioned sleep to bacon eggs and coffee on Brute force, miles from civilisation on a remote river is something all fishos should experience for themselves. It is the only way to fish. stunning coastal scenery amazing sunsets and plenty of wildlife spotting keeps your head on a swivel. This was our 3rd trip with Scotty and this time we started in the Anson bay coastal creeks  and finished in the Moil. Barra for everyone everyday and some trophy fish included. Had some great sessions on Reefies and pelagics as well. Scotty is a keen fisho and works hard to make sure you get what you came for. No reservations in recommending Humbug fishing.

I’ve done many humbug trips now, from short trips to extended trips and I have seen the most amazing sights and I have experienced things that you would never ever dream of. Entering creeks that look like man has never been before. Stepping off the boat onto the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever seen. The scenery is amazing. Saving a 4 metre croc that was tangled in a bouy rope was pretty spectacular, unwinding the rope from its front leg with a lure retriever pole was a bit scary but something I’ll never forget. Not too mention the quality and quantity of many different fish species, we never come home without a catch that’s cooked that evening for dinner which is just superb. If you like mud crab you can set the pots and return later to find your evening feast. Scott and the crew are fantastic, easy to get along with and have all the knowledge and experience you would expect Whilst on a guided trip. Mother ship and tender boats are fantastic, plenty of living and fishing space for all to enjoy. I’ll be returning for another trip with out a doubt

Spent an awesome five days on a Humbug Fishing liveaboard Charter at the Daly River Mouth. Scott is a really easy to get along with bloke and loves his fishing, we got on to some great fishing of all varieties from barra to pelagics. Did some miles but worth it for the  results. The scenery is fantastic in that part of the world. Highly recommend Humbug Fishing to anyone looking for great fishing adventure.
