Great morning fishing with Simon. Hooked a few and then tasted some on the boat! Scenery was amazing, seeing things you can only see from the water. Comfortably equipped for 6 fishing and having fun.

Tons of fun on the water. This is a great trip for beginners or experienced anglers as Simon takes you to the hot-spots. Between five of us there were over 16 salmon caught in the second week of January.

We had a perfect day, fishing on lake Wakatipu, catching 12 salmons and having a great fresh sashimi on the boat. Simon manages to be highly professional, efficient while always being friendly and caring for his guests. Fishing on lake Wakatipu is a must-do during your stay in Queenstown and Queenstown Fishing is your best choice.

Had an awesome time with Simon on the lake today. Simon was awesome. I learned how to fish, caught a bunch of salmon and really enjoyed the time on the boat.

This was honestly the best activity I've done since arriving in Queenstown over six months ago. We sailed out in perfect weather, beer in hand, taking in the stunning scenery as we motored down the lake. Once we caught some fish, Simon and Nathan prepared some sashimi, which was incredible. A BBQ as the sun was setting was the perfect... More

Definitely the most FUN I have ever had out on the water! I have been on a number of fishing charters but nothing compares to what Simon puts on for his guests. Did the half day trip out around the lake, shot guns, caught fish, had a bbq watching the sunset and a couple of quiets on the way home.... More

My husband & I booked a half day trip & had a ball. Our first try at fresh water fishing & caught a heap of salmon & trout. The highlight was ending the day with freshly prepared sashimi. A trip not to be missed & the spectacular scenery just made it better!

Loved our day out with Simon, salmon and trout fishing. Took our two young girls on the boat and they caught a few as well.

Great host and had lots of fun shooting targets, fishing and enjoying the marvelous scenery. Simon was accompanying and a good operator. Unfortunately one of lads accidentally pinched his bottle opener which he reminded us not to. Good one Sam! Lol
