Captain Andrew and Professor Tim were remarkable. It was a family trip with kids 7 and 10. Tim and Andrew were helpful while teaching the kids and the rest of us what to do. Loved the corn jokes and the homemade donuts. They truly tried to take us to a place where the fish were. Everyone on the boat caught fish and had a great experience. I would highly recommend this boat and would want to charter this boat again. It is amazing how the Captain and the crew can either make your outing wonderful or make you want to jump ship. We all made it back to dock and with fish. Great fun Adrienne Turner

This is our second year fishing with NorCal charters. Captain Andrew takes great care of us and is so patient with our kids who love fishing, but also tend to get bored easily. We caught plenty of fish for dinner both times that we fished with him. Very nice boat too!

Real Ph.D. in fishing. Going on Professor on a fishing trip with captain Andrew was a treat for both the experienced fisherman and a novice. Good price too. Highly recommended !

Kudos to both Captain and First Mate (the Andrews) for providing a great excursion. Their priority of making sure we had an enjoyable experience and catching fish was laudable. They both had wonderful knowledge of this spectacular lake and surroundings. 3 generations give these guys a huge thumb’s up. We will return.

Booked on -line. Captain Andrew rang me to check we knew where to meet and to finalise details. We arrived a few minutes early but he was ready and waiting. The fishing boat was superb and was equipped with fish finding sonar. Andrew worked hard to get us right over the fish and moved around several locations when nothing was happening. He was easy to get on with, he clearly knew the lake and he had several amusing anecdotes during the quiet periods. We only had three fish between us but this was enough for tea and it wasn't for lack of trying on his behalf. The only negative we had was the fish themselves, Mackinaw Trout, they didn't really put up much of a fight when hooked and although we cooked them three ways we didn't find them particularly tasty-but that might just be a lack of knowledge
