Gull Rock Lighthouse in the background
Manitou lighthouse, Gull Rock lighthouse and a 12lb lake trout, caught by Gull Rock on a little cleo with light spinning rod.
What’s the best thing about being a fishing (and sightseeing) charter captain? It’s putting a smile on the faces of my customers that gives me the most satisfaction. Sure, there are challenges and not everything about working on the water would be considered “peaches and cream,” but it’s a great way to spend the summer! I look forward to EVERY day and strive to make each day better than the day before.
Here are some of my favorite pictures that we took this summer on my charters on Lake Superior.Yes, most of my Lake Superior charters are fishing, but many are lighthouse seekers and some are fishing/sightseeing combos. Here, we got pictures of Manitou Island light and I dragged a lure on a light spinning rod and hooked up a nice, 12lb lake trout bu Gull Rock Lighthouse. Check out the photos below for brown trout, king salmon, coho salmon (silvers) and some steel head (lake-run rainbow trout). Below, I am holding a lake trout that fought a REALLY hard battle at Stannard Rock – nice colors, eh?
This one, fought like crazy, so much so, we thought it may be a steelhead.
