My buddy is getting married in September and we are considering charter fishing Lake Superior this summer. Has anyone gone out with a charter near Duluth, Ashland, Bayfield, etc area?

Any experiences are welcomed. Thanks!

I know some guys who do that type of thing, not professionals, but I’ve gone out with them and it’s a good time. If you want Salmon, Ashland or Bayfield will be your best bet, the Bay gets much better returns than the N Shore. That said, Duluth area offers you a shot at some great Laker action with a few small Cohos thrown in as well. Bayfield can offer great Laker fishing in the islands at times.

If you just want to catch as many big fish as possible, Lake Michigan is a much better play, but that’s obviously well away from where your wedding is. If you have the time to plan ahead, the drive may well be worthwhile. The difference would be 10-12 Chinooks between 10-30 lbs with a few Cohos up to 12 lbs, vs 10-12 Browns/Lakers/Salmon averaging 4-8 lbs for Lake Superior. That said, a day on Superior is still a blast, and you’ve got a chance at 5-6 different species
