Small Time Charters - Barkers Island

Small Time Charters offers amazing fishing trips from Barkers Island. Captain Kevin Mcardell will take you on an adventure on the largest freshwater lake in the world. Explore Lake Superior as never before and catch some tasty fish on the way!

Capt. Kevin has several departure points and you can also find him in Silver Bay marina and Two Harbors. Find the spot that’s closest to you or request a pickup for an extra charge.

You’ll aboard the captain’s 28’ Tiara Pursuit cruiser. This boat accommodates up to 6 guests and there’s enough room for everybody to fish at the same time. Kids of all ages are welcome but there shouldn’t be more than 3 kids per trip, for safety reasons. The boat is comfortable, with lots of seating area in the shade and a private toilet.

Your main targets will be different types of Trout and Salmon. Capt. Kevin uses mostly trolling, jigging, or drift fishing. If you’re interested in fly fishing, he knows the right spots but you’ll need to bring your own equipment.

The catch can be kept and the cleaning service is included in the price. Your fishing equipment is also included in the price and you’ll have a variety of quality gear to choose from. You only need to purchase your fishing license and bring food and drinks for the day.

Small Time Charters always make sure that each guest feels special and they will adjust the trip to meet your needs. Get in touch and choose the trip that’s perfect for you!
