Small Time Charters – Loon's Foot

Come fishing in the largest freshwater lake in the world with Small Time Charters! Captain Kevin Mcardell operates on Lake Superior and offers professional guidance for both experienced anglers and novices. You can find him at Loon’s Foot Marina every day, from April until November.

Your adventure starts once you aboard The June Marie, a 28’ Tiara Pursuit boat. This offshore sportfishing vessel accommodates up to 4 guests, with enough room for everybody to fish at the same time. She’s equipped with a 300 HP Mercruiser engine, a private toilet, a small kitchen, and lots of seating area.

Capt. Kevin likes to tailor each trip to you, so depending on your location and where the fish are at any given moment, you can go fishing anywhere on Lake Superior all the way to Isle Royale and Canadian border. You’ll mainly target different types of Trout and Salmon using trolling, jigging, or drift fishing.

You’ll be using top-notch fishing equipment, which is included in the price. The captain will also clean and fillet your catch free of charge. If you need a pickup, it can be arranged for an extra fee. Make sure to purchase your fishing license and bring food and drinks for the day. Departure times are flexible, so get in touch with the captain if you have any special requests.

Small Time Charters takes pride in offering personalized and professional fishing trips. Design your perfect day on Lake Superior!
