Humbug Fishing

We specialise in Extended Fishing Charters departing Darwin, the tropical city of the Northern Territory.

Our specialised group bookings include tailored experiences with a professional crew who have worked in the fishing industry for over 15 years.

Our 65 foot Mothership, Brute Force, accommodates private groups of up to eight, with comfortable sleeping areas, bathroom facilities and a huge fully shaded ‘mozzie screened’ area and back deck bar for dining and relaxation. We have the advantage of offering two 7 metre guided fishing tenders boats, that are sure to get you amongst the fish and escape the crowds; this is fishing at its best!

Bookings are for groups with exclusive use of the mothership, we will cater to your fishing requirements, targeting many species including reef fish and barramundi across the Top End, the Kimberley’s and into Arnhem Land and the Coburg Peninsula.

Humbug Fishing can also arrange a Tag A Long Mothership Charter for those wanting to bring their own fishing boats. Use our Mothership as your floating accommodation during the Barra run-off during February until July at Shady Camp and Daly River Mouth.
