Superior Sport Fishing

Superior Sport Fishing offers one-of-a-kind trip on Lake Superior. Cruising out of Bayfield, Wisconsin, you will be guided by Tom, who has over two decades of experience fishing the Great Lakes.

Tom will take you out aboard the “Reel Nauti”, a 33-foot Trojan International Express. The beauty has a stable 13-foot beam and can comfortably take up to six anglers. The “Reel Nauti” was originally built for the ocean but it doesn’t make her any less perfect for the Lake Superior waters. She comes powered by twin 454 HP Crusaders and can get you to the hottest spots in no time. The “Reel Nauti” is rigged with top-notch navigational electronics, electric downriggers, and many other professional facilities. Inside, there is everything you need for a comfortable day on the water.

Lake Superior is home to many great game fish. Depending on the season, you will be able to troll for Brown Trout, lunker Lake Trout, Coho and King Salmon, Steelhead, and even some of the western big lake Walleye. Captain Tom started as a tournament angler so his experience and knowledge are second to none. His company is family-friendly: Tom can be your best choice to introduce kids to fishing.

Superior Sport Fishing is equipped with a full array of Okuma rods and Shimano reels paired with 17# mono, lead core, braid, copper, and wire set ups. You will be provided with gear, tackle, bait, and the fish cleaning and packaging service. Don’t forget to bring a cooler with you to bring your catch home, as well as a valid WI state fishing license with Great Lakes Trout Stamp. Grab something to eat and drink if you want and welcome aboard!

    If you can think of anything better to do during the weekend than fishing, you have never seen the waters of Lake Superior. Fill the ice-chest with whatever is in the season, from Trout to Salmon and Pike.
