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

We got our limit of lake trout and there were a few fillets left over for the crew! Highest of recommendations!! Five Stars and Two Thumbs WAY up! We've decided to make it an... More

I was really excited to go out fishing, having been from Minnesota and wanting to try ocean fishing close to home. Know one thing, this is not ocean fishing. I don't want to be too hard on the guys because Capt. Dave and Mike were nice guys and maybe the fish just weren't biting, but we had a fish on... More

Different type of fishing from professionals that are good with children and adults. Boating on Lake Superior and catching fresh fish is the dream entertainment for anyone who enjoys fishing. Well worth the expense. A great way to spend the day.
