We have taken a charter with Tahoe Sport fishing four times. Every time we where given excellent instruction for bringing in our limit of fish. We were well taken care of and the crew is personable and knowledgable. Great time, great catch, and amazing photos!

6 people, 5 hours, 7 fish caught. There's just not enough fish in this lake for this kind of service. The fish that were caught were all small. Crew were nice and fun, knowledgeable...but they did get our lines tangled an awful lot. Boat is kind of crappy compared to other charters I've been on. I'd spend my $120 on... More

The boat was crowded. Lines were continually being tangled. Some people caught some small fish but nothing like what has been described. If I had known how crowded the boat was going to be I would not have taken this trip. I really don't think there was that many fish caught yesterday.

We had a great time our Captain was Cesar. The fishing is harder work than I thought so I took a couple of breaks to sit and enjoy the clear blue green water and mountain landscape. Absolutely gorgeous and relaxing being on the water.

I have to admit, I was a little skeptical going into this, I have bad anxiety :( BUT, the people running the charter were especially nice and helpful! We had 3 groups of 2 on the boat and the other 2 groups had a child and the captain and crew probably gave them the best fishing experience ever! I'll definitely... More

Our family had an amazing experience fishing with the guys from Tahoe Sport Fishing. Bobby and Sammy were so friendly and patient with our inexperienced group and were great instructors. We caught a lot of trout which made the day even better. The views you get from being on the lake are breathtaking and make for some beautiful pictures. We... More

We went out with Bobby and Sammy, and had a blast! we both caught our limit, and they were terrific hosts and instructors. they were even great guides and... More

Had a great experience fishing on this beautiful day! Our group caught three, and the other family caught 3. Pretty good for a four hour tour! The crew was very friendly and helpful. Will definitely go on one of their trips again when in Tahoe!

Scheduled the trip for Valentine's day and my wife and I agree it was the best Valentine's day we've had. Weather was perfect, the captain and deck hand were very helpful and in the end we all caught our limit. I would definitely do it again.
