We received the charter fishing trip as a wedding gift. We were scheduled for Saturday morning but Duluth had a storm move in Friday through Sunday so we received a call from Happy Hookers to reschedule for Monday. The storm turned over the lake so it was muddy but Captain Peter and his first mate found the fish! We caught... More

>Have fished with Capt Peter Dahl many times, always great. This time, we decided to charter his nephew, Capt Marty Running & First Mate Matt, just to try something different. The fishing gene certainly runs in the family! It was a lousy day to be out on Lake Superior. Windy, rough waves, cold (mid 40's), shifting bait fish locations, and... More

Went with Capt Marty on the Happy Hooker IV most recently, but have also used other Captains with the Happy Hooker family. Capt Marty is very knowledgeable with the area and the lake having grown up in the Duluth area. We caught fish and had a blast doing it with Capt Marty and his crew as they were knowledgeable with...

Afternoon fishing charter out of Duluth on the Happy Hooker Captain Pete and his 1st mate. Had good weather. We had brought extra clothing/rain gear( just in case) and also brought beverages and snacks. The trip in total lasted about 5-6 hours. We did catch some decent lake trout and one Salmon. We booked the trip with another couple and... More

We had a party of 5 for a morning charter. Everyone caught fish, we ended up limiting out on lake trout and had one nice salmon! The captain and deckhand were comical and made the trip very fun! Great views of the lake. lift bridge and lighthouse. They cleaned and bagged our fish when we returned to the dock. Definitely... More

Two days before heading to Duluth, my son suggested that I do a fishing trip. Sue was very helpful in getting me onto a boat with another group (their choice to include me). The charter docks a very conveniently located next to the convention center and the entertainment area and easy walking distance from many hotels. Captain Dave was very... More

Captain Peter Dahl once again proved his outstanding skills. On Sunday, 19 June, the Duluth area got battered with a severe storm. 45mph winds, 3ft+ waves, & hail. So for our charter on Monday, he had to deal with a changed lake. It was extremely muddy from the bottom being stirred up. Lots of debris. The fish of course had... More

Captain Peter took my wife and I out on Lake Superior for a morning charter. We left it all in his hands and he brought us to the fish! There was great conversation along the way. He and his crew (John) cleaned and bagged our limit after we got back. To say we had a great time would be an... More

Morning fishing with Capt. Peter and Awesome 1st Mate John! We loved the atmosphere, the humor, and just the over all experience really. The one thing that really stood out making Happy Hookers better than their competitors is the fact we were able to not only fish for our limit (don't use the "L" word on the boat:) ) but... More
