FishNorthMN - Northern Limit

FishNorthMN specializes in guided trips out of Duluth, MN on the mighty Lake Superior and its surrounding tributaries. If your goal is to have a fishing trip of a lifetime, you have found the right place.

Your guide Kent Paulsen has been mastering those waters for many years. Even though he knows the area like the back of his hand, he never stops exploring Lake Superior and learning new techniques to land big fish. Kent will work hard to make sure you have a productive trip and come back to shore with your very own “catch of the day.”

Using tournament-proven methods and the finest gear and tackle by Okuma and Daiwa, you will be targeting the lake’s “superstars.” Those include Salmon, Brown Trout, Walleye, Lake Trout, and Steelhead. Your technique for the day will be anything from jigging and casting to trolling live bait and fly fishing.

FishNorthMN will take you out aboard the ‘True North’, a 33’ Chris Craft Amerisport. She is a spacious, seaworthy fishing machine with twin 350 HP Chevy engines and plenty of space for up to 6 anglers. The True North is fitted with a Raymarine radar, along with Furuno fishfinder and a sound system.

All trips come with rods, reels, tackle, bait, fly fishing equipment, lures, and catch cleaning. You will need to purchase your own fishing license and bring something to eat and drink.

Kent has been fishing Lake Superior and the surrounding area since 2002. He has worked for years as a first mate for some of the most respected captains in the area. He got his captains license and started FishNorthMN with Captain Jordan Korzenowski in 2016. Kent is very passionate about learning new techniques and spots to become the most efficient and productive captain possible. He works with a large network of fellow guides and fisherman to make sure he stays on the hottest bite at all times. When not running charters he is most often exploring new waters or creating new spoons and flies at his shop.
