"He is dedicated, informed, and entertaining”

"I’ve been fishing for almost 30 years. My fishing buddy of close to 20 years was getting married and wanted to go on a Pike trip before his wedding. After doing a little research I got a hold of Taro Murata. The first time I called him to arrange the trip he answered the phone from his boat while fishing. I figured this was a good sign:) The day of our trip the weather was challenging. It was cold, windy, rainy, and we eventually got snow. My expectations for this day were pretty low due to the conditions. I wasn’t expecting snow in May!?!? Taro put us on a pretty good pattern and we caught fish at our first stop. The weather kept changing, but Taro knew spots all over the lake. Taro showed us techniques we had not seen before, and we were grateful for that. Especially because they produced several fish. We had a great lunch and had an amazing day of fishing. I had never caught so many quality fish in one day. The icing on the cake happened with about an hour left in our trip. We were hiding from the wind behind a point on the lake. Taro was experimenting with a different pattern, and caught a huge Crappie. He got us all doing the same thing and we caught close to 20 monster Crappie in that final hour. A definate surprise after such an unforgetable day of Pike fishing. I would not hesitate to book with Taro again, and recommend him highly. He is dedicated, informed, and entertaining”.

Great fishing with you Taro. Great to fish with a guide who has just as much fun as me if not more. I would recommend anyone,especially seniors or youths,to fish with Taro. You made me feel like a pro. Keep up the good WORK!!!

"your friend and loyal customer”

Taro, I just want to thank you for the many incredible fishing trips you have guided for me. I truly appreciate the professionalism and teaching skills you provide. It is the many years of experience and your willingness to teach that will keeps myself and my friends coming back time after time. Recently we had my 4 best friends on board to celebrate my 40th and Taro produced a 55 catch walleye day. Many of us set personal records that day , 3 double headers was one record tough to beat. I know all days can’t be this good but if anyone can produce it’s Taro. I look forward to the many trips ahead. Thanks your friend and loyal customer.

"This is a fantastic way to spend a day with my son”

“Every trip with Taro has been fantastic. It’s not just the trophy bass and pike (although there were so many we lost count!) Taro brings a spirit of fun and adventure that keeps my 10 year old begging to go back. Taro is a true sportsman with an amazing ability to find the fish. This is a fantastic way to spend a day with my son – I highly recommend Fish City for a great father/son outing.”

"..we were on fish all day long”

“All I can say is wow…Top notch, my daughter’s first Canada fishing trip and we were on fish all day long. I don’t think I’ve ever been in the boat with anyone with that much and knowledge and know how when it comes to fishing. There will never be a second guess for the next trip (hopefully soon). I was hooked as soon as we got into the boat literally…lol. My daughter didn’t have much experience fishing the way we were but 15 mins into the trip she could of out fished the pros”.
Thanks again for one of my greatest fishing experiences,

"Best dollars I’ve ever spent.”

“Regardless if you’re a newbie or a seasoned veteran, do yourself a favour and give Taro a try. Fishing isn’t an exact science, but Taro’s approach seems pretty darn close. And the best thing is, he’s willing to share his knowledge with his clients. The educational component alone was worth the cost. Best dollars I’ve ever spent. Not to mention he’s just a straight-up nice guy who made our day very memorable”.
Thanks again Taro. Looking forward to many other trips together!

"..allows me to improve my fishing skills.”

Fish City Tours headed by Taro provides the best fishing experience for anyone who loves to fish. He shares his knowledge openly, creates a fun and relaxing atmosphere and allows me to improve my fishing skills. I’ve been fishing all of my life but never caught so many in quantity and in quality sizes in my life. I strongly taking a trip with Taro if you want to have the time of your life on the water!
