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 27’ Tiara Open boat. She is a spacious, seaworthy fishing machine with twin 270 HP Crusader engines and plenty of space for up to 6 anglers. The True North is fitted with a Lowrance HDS Gen2 GPS and G3 radar, along with Furuno fishfinder and a VHF radio. She also features a restroom, a kitchen area, a bed, downriggers for professional experience, and other accessories.

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.
