Look no further than Lake Tahoe Fishing Trips for a fishing charter that will hook you up! Join Captain Brad Bugica and experience some of the lake’s most exciting and rewarding fishing.

Step aboard a 25’ River Wild powered by a 250 HP Yamaha 4-stroke engine. This boat is fitted with advanced technology and quality equipment, including GPS, Fishfinder, and downriggers. Up to 6 anglers can enjoy fishing Lake Tahoe in complete comfort aboard this craft. Children of all ages and pets are welcome.

While fishing Lake Tahoe with Capt. Brad, you can target a variety of species including Mackinaw (Lake Trout). These waters boast some of the best Mackinaw you can find, with larger specimens reaching over 10 lbs in size. Like most fish in the lake, they are wild, making them all the more desirable.

The bite is best early in the morning, so he’ll have you out on the lake trolling for fish as the sun comes up. You can join him fishing in Lake Tahoe any time of the year.

Capt. Brad is prepared to meet all your fishing needs, from providing custom rods and reels to his own expertise. With more than 20 years of experience as a guide, he knows just where and how to target these fish best. Snacks and drinks are also available on board, including water, soda, muffins, and granola bars.

What you catch is yours to do with as you please; you can bring an icebox to keep it in and Capt. Brad will clean and fillet it for you, or you can release it back into the wild. All anglers 16 and older must purchase a California or Nevada fishing license and report cards if needed.

Book your trip today and join Capt. Brad for fishing in Lake Tahoe!
