Lake Superior Salmon fishing charters can take you out on the trip of a lifetime. Visiting the largest freshwater lake in the world is a special experience in itself, but add to that the thrill of chasing one of the most coveted freshwater fish, and it becomes a whole new adventure. These waters are deep, calm, and beautiful, and they’ll give you a thrill you won’t forget anytime soon.

Coho Salmon are probably the most-targeted Salmon species in these waters. They were introduced to the lake in the 1960s, and since then they’ve adapted to their new home with ease. When you add Chinook and Pink Salmon to the mix, you get a real freshwater angling adventure. And that’s not all! Atlantic Salmon are another species you can find roaming these waters, especially around St. Marys River.

Depending on when you plan on making this fun trip, you’ll find these creatures in different parts of the lake. They prefer colder temperatures, so in the summer months you’ll need to head into the deep. In the fall, they move into the many tributaries to spawn, only to start heading back into the lake in spring.

If you’re heading out in summer, consider booking a full day trip so you’ll have time to troll the deep waters. Spring and fall are great times to head out, and a half day trip will normally suffice. But if you’re looking to fill your bags, more time is never a bad thing!

Duluth and Superior are some of the best places to find a Lake Superior Salmon fishing charter. You’ll find great guides in Copper Harbor, Munising, and Marquette as well. Just across the border in Canada, Sault Ste. Marie boasts a good number of charters ready to take you out.

It was recommended to go as early in the morning as possible for best fishing, but we did catch two at 9am and 1030am! Just being on the boat and out on the lake and taking in the sights was enjoyable when the fish weren't biting!

Try here’s a reason they call it “fishing”... and not “catching.”

Go ahead and try it and remember to enjoy the scenery while you are heading out and back in! Take in the view and watch the air for float planes as well!

Just remember your sweatshirt in the morning. And drinking a couple beers seemed to help the fish start biting!
