Friends, families, fishermen,
old and new, near and far -

It is with extreme sadness that we let you know of Mickey's passing in late February 2021, and with fond regard that we remember his 60+ years loving Lake Tahoe.

Being on the water was his life's passion. His enduring happiness and inner peace peaked while chasing lake trout and frolicking with eager fishermen. Having fun with you all, teasing your kids and yes, consistently "catching", created a lifetime of pure enjoyment and satisfaction.

Each and every excursion was an unforgettable adventure for Mickey. His drive was in the journey, but his true joy was with you, creating lifelong memories for everyone along the way.

He often commented, "I just enjoy the people".

So... from Mickey, to all of you,
Happy life, Happy fishing!

RIP Mickey



The Big Mack II is docked at Sierra Boat Company in Carnelian Bay, California. This premier marina is conveniently located on Highway 28 just 5 miles from the California/Nevada border between Kings Beach and Tahoe City. (GPS: 5146 North Lake Boulevard; Zip Code 96140)

Mickey's Big Mack, Lake Tahoe Fishing Adventure
The spacious 43' Big Mack II sportfisher is designed specifically for Lake Tahoe and equipped with the latest in electronics and fishing gear. Mickey and his crew will ably assist you and share their expertise as you enjoy deeplining for Mackinaw and toplining for Rainbow and Browns. Some of Mickey's "record" catches during the past 40 years include Mackinaws over 30 pounds, along with trophy Rainbows over 11 pounds and Browns.

Both individuals and groups (large or small) are welcome. We offer whole-boat discounts and gift certificates are available for those special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, Father's Day or Mother's Day.
