There are two different type of Charter fishing. The first is where you have the Captain and first mate set all the line and when a fish bite they hand you the rod after making sure there could be a fish on it. The second is my way, from the start you are giving instruction on how to set lines and fighting the fish, You are fishing the hand-on way and you help with everything. The time goes by faster, and your experience on the Lake Superior will be something you talk about for a long time. So it really your choice on who you want to fish with.
Green Eyes #2 is a 1979 36' Trojan or your fishing adventure or a sight seeing cruise. Lots of space with covered shelter to get out of the weather, a head and table space that seats four are some of the amenities.. All the latest fishing equipment is provided. From there on, all that's necessary is patience because the fish may take awhile to bite. The area we cover on Lake Superior on the Minnesota side is from Duluth up to Knife River. On the Wisconsin side from Duluth/Superior to the Brule River. In the hot summer days we might have to travel out into the Lake to find the right water temperature.
While fishing Lake Superior you might catch Lake Trout, Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout(Steel Head) Walleye, Coho(Silver), Chinook(King) Salmon. Salmon feed close to the surface while trout might feed down to 300 feet down in the lake. Fishing laws of Wisconsin and Minnesota are different. In Wisconsin you can keep a Rainbow Trout if over the 26 inch length and Minnesota any native Rainbow trout you have to release, only clipped Rainbow Trout can be kept.
