Was a truly amazing morning out on the lake. Mike was great company and very knowledgeable. Will do again, next time in summer.

What to say about my second expedition with Whiskery Mike? This charter was three years in the making thanks to COVID-related delays. Mike is the consummate fishing professional and in the morning took my father-in-law and I to the mouth of the Tongariro River for a bit of heave and leave fly fishing. This fishing spot did not disappoint - three beautiful rainbow trout were bagged in quick succession. We then headed to the eastern side of the lake to complete some trawling and after a bit of manoeuvring we hooked another prized rainbow. Trout for dinner that night and smoked trout to take home. If you’re reading this review and contemplating: will I book a trip with Whiskery Mike? Do yourself a favour and get on board. Expect humour, good stories, comfortable vessel and most of all … trout. As an Aussie with family in NZ I plan to make an annual pilgrimage to Taupō to fish with Mike.

What a fantastic days fishing. Mike was a great host full of local knowledge and tips. He was great company over the 4 hours and importantly I caught 6 trout the majority of which were catch and release. He also knew local cafes and gave us a lovely venue to relax and recuperate after the hard mornings fishing....

Absolutely fantastic. Mike is very knowledgeable and friendly. We had 2 adults and 2 teenagers and caught 9 big trout. Mike even fileted the fish for us. Highly recommend. Well worth it.
