Looper Charters Lake Superior

(33) Going fast!

Looper Charters Lake Superior invites you on a fishing adventure of a lifetime on the beautiful Lake Superior out of Duluth, Minnesota. The charter is operated by Captain James Quade who has over 50 years of fishing experience and has fished this lake for over 25 years. Captain James has unmatched fishing skills and a wicked sense of humor that will turn your fishing day into a true adventure.

Captain James will take you fishing for Lake Trout, Steelhead, Salmon, or Walleye depending on the season you go out. You will have all the fishing gear provided in the form of rods, reels, tackle, lures, live bait, and a fishing license, so all you have to bring is a good mood. Captain James works with a mate who will help you reel in your catch, so pay attention and learn from the pros.

You will fish aboard a 32-foot Marinette aluminum fishing boat, powered by two 235 HP Chrysler engines, with a maximum cruising speed of 20 knots. The boat is fully equipped with all the safety equipment such as life jackets and a CPR-trained crew.

The vessel boasts a toilet, a kitchen, a bed, and a comfortable seating area for when you tire of fighting the fish. There is also a GPS and a fishfinder that will help you locate the best fishing spots, as well as an icebox for your catch, and outriggers.

Looper Charters Lake Superior can take you on fishing trips that will allow you to also sightsee and take in largest of the Great Lakes of North America. In the words of Captain James: “Thrill and chill of big lake fishing!”.
