Lake Superior’s name is quite fitting when it comes to fishing, it’s one of the best freshwater fishing grounds in the world, both in size as well as the quality of the fight that the fish provide. The aptly named I’d Rather Be Fishing Charters is keen on showing you exactly why this reputation exists, so join them for an exciting lake adventure!
You will fish from their 32’ flybridge boat, the “Rendezvous II”, manufactured by Trojan. She’s powered by twin Chevy engines, each providing 225 HP of thrust – that allows her to develop a maximum cruising speed of 23 knots, more than respectable for a boat her size on this great lake. She can hold up to 6 anglers fishing at the same time in comfort. The boat was originally built in 1982, but has been restored in 2015; you get the best of both worlds, all the modern amenities you may wish for, combined with the tried-and-tested quality of the boat’s build.
Captain Nathan Fondness will be your guide and assistant on this fishing charter. He’ll take you after a variety of gorgeous local species such as the Pike, Walleye, Musky, Chinook and Coho Salmon, as well as the Brown, Lake, and Steelhead Trouts. The fishing techniques are geared toward the best fight you can get, so light tackle is used exclusively.
Capt. Nathan will take you fishing up to 15 miles offshore, so customers should bring adequate clothing. There’s no minimum age for kids on board of I’d Rather Be Fishing Charters. Clients are advised to also bring polarized sunglasses, sunscreen, and a waterproof camera. The Rendezvous II is disabled accessible, but the captain asks customers to contact him prior to arriving, to work out the details.
