Lake Tahoe fishing offers quality trout fishing for German Browns 2-16lbs... our boat has caught the last 4 lake records Brown trout , Rainbow trout 1-12lbs, Kokanee Salmon 12 to 22inches, and Mackinaw 2-7lb average but many fish from 10-25lbs annually on our boat! The lake record at 37 plus pounds. We generally target the different species depending on the season. We use light tackle for trolling, jigging and live bait fishing. Do your research, there is a difference! WE CATCH FISH!

Custom charters


Private group charters or share trips available, the choice is yours! Cost for private boat is $600 1 to 4 people, or $150 per person for share trips. Want to target a select species and catch them, book the boat private or just looking to get out and fish while on vacation then jump on a share trip and meet fellow anglers and catch fish in the most amazing setting! We run two trips daily with the 5 am departure the most popular or sleep in and take the afternoon or evening run out. Call Captain Mike for reports!
