Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I have been extremely lucky to fish with Humbug on many occasions on both Yarramundi and Bruteforce. Location is amazing, the crew are amazing and the fishing is amazing. Highly recommend any adventure you wish to take with them from Arnhemland to Daly to the Kimberleys❤️🎣❤️🎣

This is a budget way to see some of the TopEnd and the club has used Scott and Simon for at least the last three years. You will get the value by bringing all your own food and alcohol and if there are say 6-8 of you, some iceboxes to supplement the fridges. We towed two five+ meter boats and two more were crained on board too. Specialist gear all came with us as well. If you want, say a beer or a cup of coffee then it is do it yourself. There is no chef and it is clean and basic but brilliant if you are self sufficient. Sleeping in airconditioned bunks is great but obviously there are no separate cabins. The cost is probably only 25% of the standard catered trip and the boys will do almost anything reasonable for you. It's not for you if you're soft but great otherwise and multiple locations are available. I'm looking forward to next time.

Just completed a trip from the Kimberley WA back to Darwin NT, fishing & sightseeing along the way. What can I say but it was the best trip I have ever been on. Scott & crew with their professionalism, humour & knowledge of the area made our days a joy, finishing a day off kicking back enjoying a feed washed down by a cold one on Brute Force & her comforts just topped it off. I highly recommended Humbug Fishing Charters for a trip of a lifetime. Cheers guys. 🥃👍

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 👍

I'm on my way up to the Top End again next week after two trips with Humbug last year and yearly since 2010. Home away from home for me! Scott, Lorna and their crew certainly know to host a trip that keeps me coming back. This voyage I'm heading out on the mother ship 'Brute Force' to fish the Coburg Peninsula and surrounding waters - a trip that has been tailormade for me by Scott using his vase knowledge of the area and my need/want/addiction for catching Barramundi and Pelagic fish. My bags are packed, stay tuned!
