Pinnacle Charters takes you fishing around the waters of Lake Taupo to sample primer Rainbow and Brown Trout throughout the year. These trips are ideal for families on vacation and anglers who want to unwind and savor the view. But fishing is not all you can do here – go explore Maori Rocks in the Mine Bay or white cliffs of the lake.
You will be fishing aboard a 22’ Ramco boat, powered by a 150 HP Yamaha engine that will give you speed but without noise. The vessel is great for couples or families. She can take up to five people, but if you want maximum comfort, it’s best to have 4 adults onboard. The boat is equipped with navigational gear, has a toilet, fully-enclosed canopy suitable for all weather conditions, carries safety gear and life jackets, and has tea and coffee making facilities.
Lake Taupo is the promised land for Trout fishing lovers. The scenery is striking and these waters have a healthy stock of fish. Try jigging for Trout or just unplug on the water cruising down the lake and taking in the beauty of the sight. There are numerous hidden riches scattered around the lake, including bays, beaches, cliff faces, and waterfalls.
When packing for the trip, you should bring your own food and refreshments. The captain will supply rods, reels, and tackle. You may need to purchase a Lake Taupo fishing permit before you board the vessel, so best check with the captain before the trip. Also, pack a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, and a camera.
