The bountiful waters of Lake Superior are some of the best places to do freshwater fishing in the world. Combine that fact with the vast experience Happy Hooker Charters have fishing this productive area and you have the recipe for a fun and memorable fishing adventure!
Climb aboard their 32’ Marinette express cruiser, originally built in 1970 and restored in 2016. She’s proven the quality of her build over decades of use, now refurbished with all the modern amenities you can expect. You’ll stay comfortable while hitting up to 32 knots, her maximum cruising speed. A full-head toilet, bed, and kitchen are present on board, to ensure you can focus on the fish.
Experienced captains of Happy Hooker Charters will take you after the gorgeous fish in Lake Superior, St. Louis Bay, and St. Louis River. You’ll mostly troll for Lake Trout, but other species targeted are Chinook and Coho Salmon, Brown Trout, Steelhead, and Walleye. Downriggers are available to extend your reach when trolling.
You will be provided with quality rods and reels made by Shimano. The crew will clean and fillet your catch free of charge. The first mate is on board to give you a hand with anything you need, he works for tips so gratuity is greatly appreciated. Children, seniors, and veterans are more than welcome aboard!
If you’re ready to see just why the Dahl family has been one of the most successful fishing charters on Lake Superior for over 40 years now, book a trip with Happy Hooker Charters!

Very prompt and prepared first thing in the morning…parking immediately adjacent to docks. Capt. John was very friendly, knowledgeable, and thorough. Boat was fully equipped. Water was nice and calm and weather was beautiful.
The only down side was that fishing was slow that day…only caught two in five hours, but that’s fishing. Capt John, being very thoughtful, kept us out for an additional thirty minutes and we ended up catching another two. He probably would have kept us out there longer if he didn’t have another charter that afternoon. His thoughtfulness was very much appreciated.
It was a little pricey but that’s understandable when you have the boat and crew to yourself for half a day. Had a good time with my boys…I’m glad we went.

My son, his wife, their two boys 12 and 9 and I did a morning session in late July. They are from Hot Springs AR, and always enjoy escaping the southern summer heat. Besides the early hours, the experience was everything we imagined. We all caught fish, and we especially enjoyed seeing the boys bonding with Marty and Dennis. We are now talking about making this an annual event. We highly recommend it, especially for youngsters.
