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!

We all had an awesome time with Captain Matt and Adam.  We were all first timers, and we all caught fish. We can’t wait to plan another trip!

The cow bell, the chants, the pennies, the horse shoe, the rocks, the rabbits feet and the lucky duckies worked!!! 
- It was actually a knowledgeable crew that took us to the fish!

Jake and I enjoyed your company. In spite of a slow start, the 2 big trout at the end made for a great afternoon.
