Looper Charters Lake Superior

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 Brody Kaldahl who has dedicated the past 5 years to guiding on Lake Superior and learning how to make it the best experience possible.

Captain Brody 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, and live bait, so all you have to bring is a fishing license and a good mood. Captain Brody 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 the largest of the Great Lakes of North America.
