We are in Tahoe for Thanksgiving week and decided last minute to book a four hour fishing charter for 8 of us (4 adults, 2 teens and 2 kids). We are SO glad we found Nor-Cal Charters as we had such an amazing trip! Andrew and Tim were incredible guides with great personalities. The fishing was good and they were so attentive and patient with our 7-year-old. The boat was very nice, spacious and clean. We will be booking this charter with this company in the future as everyone had a fantastic time! Truly one of the best fishing charters we've been on and it completed our Thanksgiving week in Tahoe and we can't wait to come back!

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.

Andrew and his deck hand did an outstanding job. The boat was comfortable and clean. The tackle and equipment was all great and we caught a limit of fish. I’ve fished in many places and Andrew was the best I’ve experienced.

Went out with Captain Andrew. I have been out with multiple charters on lake Tahoe over the years, and this was by far my best experience! Captain Andrew was friendly, knowledgeable, and worked hard to put me on the fish! He taught me all sorts of new fishing techniques to catch Mackinaw lake trout. I ended up catching 6 fish myself. I highly recommend this charter company and captain Andrew!

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

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!

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

Captain Mike kept in touch before our trip updating us on weather conditions and the best days to hit the water during our stay. He was launched and ready for us to step aboard and start fishing before our appointed time. He put us on fish immediately and the quality was outstanding. If you're looking to catch fish on a great sturdy Tahoe fishing boat, I recommend calling Captain Mike.

We had an awesome time fishing with Captain Andrew and his deck hand Sammi. Both were very knowledgeable. The fish were scarce that day, but we all had a great time listening to stories and hanging out waiting for the fish to bite. Great time. Thanks

We had a great time! We caught our limit of fish! We learned about the lake and the different species of fish in it.
