Captain Jim and First Mate Tyrone were great fishing guides. They explained the logistics of fishing on Lake Superior, willingly answered all our questions, and were very interesting to visit with and share their experiences. Captain Jim told us how to cook the fish and it was delicious. We appreciated that the captain told us to dress warm as it was cool that morning. School age and older children would do fine on the boat.
