Captain Mike Jousma took my family of 5 fishing in August, not the greatest month at Flathead Lake for fishing, Our half day charter did not disappoint -- he got us all at least one Lake Trout. He is a real pro, and a terrific guy to hang out with on the boar. I highly recommend them if you're looking for a charter on Flathead Lake.

I had the opportunity to fish with Captain Mike on the Flathead Lake. He is awesome!!!! Not only is he very professional, but he knows everything you would ever want to know about the lake and fishing. His wife Rebecca works very hard to assist all guests. She is always so nice and friendly and gets right back to you. I highly recommend going catching (not fishing) with Captain Mike.

We wanted to see Flathead Lake, and we booked the 4 hour Wild Horse Island Tour. We did not want to do a big tour boat with lots of people, so being out on the boat by ourselves with Captain Chris was great.
He showed us many features of the Lake and had stories of local lore.
We did not want to be on Wild horse Island for very long...as being on the water is what we like. We did see lots of deer and some mountain sheep.
It was a great day, and I jumped in the water on the way back....which made it ALL good!
Also, Rebecca could not have been nicer to deal with in setting this all up!

Beautiful lake, good conversation, good company in a relaxed atmosphere. Capt'n Mike displayed expertise and overall knowledge of the area and skill in location and luring in the fish. His going the extra effort to explain his techniques and general fishing knowledge was greatly appreciated. All of us were novice anglers who relied heavily on Capt'n Mike's experience. All in the boat landed a fish and even returned a large one back for others to enjoy.

What a great day on Flathead lake with Captain Kirk. He was a fantastic guide, super nice and fun to talk to, and he put us on fish! I had my 20 year old son with us, and we both caught some really nice lake trout that I am now excitedly marinating for a smoked trout dinner. I also met Captain Mike, and he was also a great guy. I highly recommend Captain Mike’s outfit (and Kirk) to anyone coming to the area and looking to have a fun day on the water. I am already planning to come back in January for some ice fishing with these guys.

Thanks for a great time- I planned an amazing two week vacation/honeymoon to Montana/Glacier etc and this was what my husband was most looking forward to. It did not disappoint! Captain Chris checked in with us before the trip and took into consideration what we were looking forward to (catching some big fish we would cook up!). He took us out a little early since the forecast was iffy, but the weather cooperated (aside from it being very windy/choppy) and we had an amazing morning of fishing. He knew exactly what spots to go to (don’t want to give them away here :)) and we caught the biggest fish we’ve ever caught- although these weren’t even the biggest in the lake according to him. Definitely recommend!

Thank you for taking the time to write this wonderful review, we're very pleased you had an amazing time with Captain Kirk. Our guides love to fillet the fish you catch for a hard earned dinner! Hope to fish with you again.

Over the years I have been on several guided fishing trips in Texas, Louisiana, Mexico and Alaska. This is the first time I’ve written a review and it is because we were so impressed with our guide, Captain Glenn. He was extremely knowledgeable regarding the lake and the fishery. His boat and gear were excellent and he was just a good guy to visit with. Because of a sudden drop in water temperature a few days prior to our arriving the fishing was slow but it was still one of the most enjoyable trips I have been on and the lake and mountain scenery is beautiful. We are planning on returning.

I used Captain Mike's Fish-n- Fun and ended up going out with Captain Kirk. We did Flathead Lake and Loon Lake. The fishing was bad, skunked on Flathead and 3 small rainbow on Loon. Having said that Captain Kirk was great and we had a very fun time together despite the lack of fish. In fairness there was virtually no fish being caught mainly due to the high temps in early June and the lack of hatch on Loon Lake. However, overall, it was a great experience and would definitely recommend Captain Kirk! He can also serve as your tour guide if the fish are not biting!

Definitely not what I expected. For $425 expected more for my money. The guide was informative as he did the tour of the lake. We were the only couple on the tour but it was a small fishing boat and not really room for any more people. Climbing in and out of the boat was a challenge for if you have back issues. Did not expect the tour guide to just drop us off on Wild Horse Island for 3 hours to hike on our own. We called and had him pick us up after about 2 hours. The week before we did the Rising Sun Boat Tour in Glacier National Park and it was only $44.50 which was about 1-1 1/2 hours. This tour was about 4 hours but about half of the time you were hiking on your own. Great tour if you knew what to expect but definitely not worth the money we spent.

My wife, three kids and I went out with Captain Mike Moore on his 26' KingFisher for the 5-hour morning fishing expedition. Mike was great from the get-go and made us feel right at home. We got underway and once we got to his spot, we started dropping lines. At a pretty consistent clip for the next few hours, we hooked up tons of lake trout. Mike helped each one of my kids individually and encouraged them along the way. He answered all the myriad questions we all had and never got tired of the fishing or the questions. He walked us through how to filet the fish, and even gave us some recipe tips and ideas that we followed and ended up thoroughly enjoying. This was truly a highlight of our trip and I would definitely do it again. I can't say enough good things about this trip and about Captain Mike.
