Charter Fishing on Lake Superior


This will be Bluefin Bay’s fourth season partnering with North Shore Outdoors to offer our guests the unique opportunity to charter fish on Lake Superior. Captain Kelly will be your guide and he brings with him more than 40 years of experience on the lake. While on his 22-foot Bayliner Trophy hardtop, all fishing essentials will be provided for you. This is your opportunity to catch that Trout or Salmon you have always dreamed of. This is a paid event, and the rates vary depending on your group size.
