Great morning fishing

Really enjoyed 3 hr fishing trip on Simon's boat. Joined 2 other friendly anglers and Simon tried hard with different methods including soft baits and trawling to get us amongst the Trout. The scenery was amazing and Simon was very knowledgeable about the lake and surrounding area and happy to share his knowledge and answer any questions. We ended up catching 2 nice trout which Simon expertly cleaned and prepped. Overall I would definitely recommend Queentowm fishing and wouldn't hesitate to re-book if in the Queenstown region in the future.

Fantastic fishing Trip

We had an excellent fishing trip with Simon around Lake Wakatipu. Such a passionate local fisherman who knows the history of the area and has all the hot tips and fishing skills to catch fish in the area. We had a little confusion on the day as we went to the wrong departure point as there seems to be another operator who trades under Queenstown fishing charters but this is not Simon So glad we did our research and the locals recommended Queenstown fishing - -they’re the one with the cool logo great operator who know his stuff. Fantastic day out thanks heaps Simon -- we will definitely be back!
