This tip on Lake Wakapitu on board the vessel Nikita with Simon the owner was a great experience and we thoroughly recommend this trip to anyone. He was exceptionally professional and very friendly.
Yes we caught a few good fish but we so enjoyed this great boat with hot coffee, tea and snacks on a cold morning and it was always interesting, moving to new locations and trying different catch methods.
We have been on few charters and this is among the best. Try it you won’t be disappointed
