Lake Superior Hatteras Fishing is one of your best choice for a premier charter when fishing the Great Lakes. Departing from the Port of Duluth, Minnesota, you will soon find yourself in the middle of a rod-bending action.

Explore the Lake Superior’s outstanding fishery aboard the “Blue Haven”, a 42’ Hatteras boat. She is John Hargrave’s finest work, designed with all the comforts of home in mind. The “Blue Haven” can easily raise a big Marlin from the depths! Twin 235 HP Detroit diesels and a Westerbeke diesel generator will power you and five fishing buddies to the hottest fishing grounds, and all the top-notch Garmin and Furuno electronics will aid your search for the big ones. The “Blue Haven” is well-prepared for the current bite.

With Lake Superior Hatteras Fishing, it’s not only about catching fish. With their finest hospitality and professionalism, the crew’s aim is to make sure all their guests have a good time. They have mastered the waters and know how to put their clients on fish. When you return to the shore, you will be able to find Lake Trout, Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, Chinook Salmon, and Walleye among your “catch of the day”.

All trips come with all the necessary gear and tackle you will need for a productive trolling and bottom fishing experience. The crew will be pleased to clean your catch and prepare it for a ride home. You just need to purchase a license prior to the trip, bring something to eat and drink, and show up!
