Captain Andrew Lubrano founded Nor-Cal Charters with the mission of bringing great sportfishing and sustainable fishing practice to Lake Tahoe. After a lifetime of deck handing and captaining on charter boats in northern California, Capt. Andrew felt qualified to offer a premium sportfishing experience, so he gathered together a team of experienced captains and deckhands and now operates 3 great boats out on the lake.
