4 adults and 2 kids went for a half day in the afternoon. Booking was easy and they were flexible as we added more people. Parking at the marina can be difficult. The boat has good indoor space, water and snacks with a cooler and there was plenty of space to fish even with 6 people. We caught several lake trout and got them cooked up for dinner. Excellent!

This was the perfect addition to our Edgewood Resort / South Tahoe vacation. The Edgewood didn’t suggest Mile High Charters. They suggested another captain who was located just a bit closer in the touristy Ski Run Marina. But the Edgewood’s complimentary resort shuttle had no trouble taking us the short distance to Mile High Charter’s marina. I’m so glad I did my homework, read reviews, and made my own gut decision about choosing a charter operation. Joby made the day perfect for my family of four with two young kids! We caught lots of fish and had tons of fun with a guy who clearly loves what he does, and is a total professional in every aspect! Beyond the outstanding fishing we learned so much about the history and local knowledge of this beautiful place from a lifelong native. Highly recommend!

Booked a trip with Mile High Charters and had captain Justin Cain at the helm. The weather turned out to be 180 degrees from the forecast. We needed up with wind, rain, a changing barometer. All things that could have resulted in a tough trip on the catching side. Justin has this fishery dialed. He put us on active fish in many different places. He worked hard to make sure the trip was memorable. It was and we will be back. Got a nice sack of groceries for the grill in the form of some nice lake trout and had a great time doing it. We will be back. Can't go wrong here with Mile High.

Today myself, husband and 15 year old daughter went on a charter with another couple and Captain Justin. It was a 4.5 tour in the afternoon. Boat was great . All equipment was good. Captain Justin was very friendly and taught us how to fish! We caught 5 fish! It’s was an amazing day on the water and we will for sure back.

We went fishing today with Joby and had a wonderful time! He put us on fish within the first few minutes of putting our poles in the water. We were out there for five hours and caught our limit of Mackinaw. He is a native and knows Lake Tahoe like his own back yard. If you want to catch some fish and get some local history on the lake and surrounding areas then you need to come see Joby! He even cleans and bags your fish with recommendations on where to go get your fish cooked!

I took the 5:30 am charter and getting started that early was a delight and well worth the fee. The charter captain Joby was professional and prompt and no nonsense, but made my fishing experience enjoyable. I went out to catch fish, but was able to enjoy the beauty of the Lake at sunrise and catch fish. I highly recommend this charter to all of my friends and anyone who is serious about fishing.

This was a great value. Joby was a friendly and knowledgeable captain. Our lines were in the water nearly the entire trip and we caught plenty of fish. To be accurate I caught the first fish of the day within 30 seconds of dropping my first line. On my week in Tahoe I went on two charters with two different outfits. Though the captain on the other charter was great and I had a good experience I preferred Mile High. With the other outfit there were 10 people on the boat, it felt crowded, it was loud and a lot of people caught nothing. The other company felt a lot like a deep sea charter with the big crowded boat and deep sea poles. With Mile High I knew I was on the lake and it was peaceful. I was able to enjoy the amazing views of the area.

The many 5-star reviews of Mile High Fishing is the reason I booked a trip for friends I had visiting from out of town. His knowledge of Lake Tahoe is unsurpassable as he is a lifetime local and he knows the lake intimately as evidenced by the many and sizable fish we caught. Thanks, Captain Joby!

I chose Mile High based on trip advisor reviews I had read while planning our Tahoe trip. I now know why it had so many great reviews! The boat is clean and comfortable and Captain Joby is the best! He found fish immediately and gave great instructions on how to catch them. Everyone in our family of five had a rod in hand and we all fished actively (jigging) the entire time.. Joby suggested we dress in layers which is great advice. The early mornings on the water are cold but it warms up nicely. A great experience from start to finish!

Our Guide Captain Joby is a Lake Tahoe Native and full of knowledge about Lake Tahoe. This was our second trip with Mile High and didn't think it could be better than the last. We caught huge Mackinaw, limits once again plus threw about ten back. He gave us dining options, great places to hike and enjoy the outdoors. Looking forward to trip number 3. We would have gone again but he was all booked up. If you visit Tahoe don't leave without a trip with Mile High. You don't even need to be a fisherman the trip is worth twice the price. I fished with another company a few years back. The boat was overloaded and all they cared about was their tip and getting back to the dock. Mile High Charters and Captain Joby thanks for the memories!
