Amazing trip on a flat bottomed jet boat that took us from the lake down the river and landed us on some secluded islands in the middle of the Kawarau. Mike was an excellent guide / skipper. We had 3 1/2 hours on the water, saw some fantastic scenery that few others would have access to, great tackle to fish... More

Planned a 2 hour trip for hubby and i the day before, Mike was flexible with earlier start times and accommodated everything perfectly. The fishing experience in fresh water was awesome, the start to end was loads of fun. Mike and us had a ball thanks to his great fishing skills and overall conversation. Thanks for a great morning out... More

Unreel was recommended to us by a local, we had an awesome morning fishing. Came off the river with 3 big rainbow trouts, there was kiwi guy on our trip who had never been fish hunting before and the guide (i think it was eric) was very helpful and hands on teaching him how to cast, I would defiantly recommend...

Me & my friend Bridget had such a cool time out on the lake with our guide Mike, fishing, being 'potluck', we still caught heaps of trout and salmon. Mike was very keen to move around and take us to all the good spots. We had a great time. Thanks heaps Unreel. Recommended as a "must do" when visiting Queenstown.

Six people on the boat - only ONE fish caught in two hours of fishing. Very disappointing. The guide and captain Mike stayed in the one spot when it was obvious no fish were biting fir the entire trip. Did not seem to care at all about his paying customers. Spent the whole time talking to on guy on the... More

Mike was a friendly professional guide, 12 fish (salmon, brown & rainbow trout) caught in 2 hours between 5 people, great scenery, very pleasant trip. More enthusiastic anglers might prefer the river trips for a more active fishing experience.

Had a great 2 hours out on the lake with Mike. Was very friendly and informative. Didn't have to do a thing but reel my big trout in! We caught 5 fish all up so was a good morning!

Highly disappointing experience - no explanation of the activity, the lake, the fish we might catch or the method. Didn't touch a rod the whole time, had to prompt the guide for information on lakeside landmarks. Don't waste your time and money,

We went out for a few hours on the lake in Queenstown. Caught nothing.. One of the lures had been snapped off at the beginning but not checked, the guide obviously isn't an experienced fisherman. Would much rather of spent the $300 on anything else more fun than just trawling around the lake for hours..Wouldn't personally recommend for anyone that's... More
