Tag Along Fishing Charters

BYO Boat and Tag Along with the Mothership!

Do you want to be master of your own destiny when you fish the Top End? Well weigh anchor and chart your own course, knowing that each night you can take safe harbor on board our mothership, Brute Force.

Plan your Tag Along Fishing Charter with us and we’ll make sure you’ll spend more time angling and less time heading back and forth to shore during your precious time off.
If you live in the Top End and own your own boat, this has to be the easiest option to choose because it really does give you the best of both worlds!

From feisty Spanish mackeral, black jewfish, red emperor, to the beautiful golden snapper, coral trout and of course, the star of the show, the iconic NT barramundi found inland around river run offs, our fishing experiences will not disappoint you!
