For those guests wishing to sample charter fishing on Lake Superior, Lutsen Resort has worked out a deal with Tofte Charters, a local outfitter. This is a great way for smaller groups or individuals to enjoy a charter without having to rent the whole boat!
Participants are required to provide a MN fishing license with a trout stamp. One day licenses are available on the boat for $11 (MN Resident) or $13 (Non Resident), cash or check only. Make reservations through the resort Activities Department either by stopping by our desk in the Main Lodge or calling 218.663.6695.
Lutsen Resort 4 Hour Charter Special
Only $90/person | Available Thursday mornings, June 30-September 1.
You’ll need to drive to the boat launch at Taconite harbor by 7:15 AM. The boat will leave at 7:30AM and return at 11:30AM. If you would like a longer half-day or full-day trip, you can make arrangements directly with Captain Darren at Tofte Charters.
Tofte Charters has very comfortable boats and United States Coast Guard licensed captains. You will want to bring outdoor clothing. Remember that the temperature is typically a few degrees cooler on the lake. Rainwear is also recommended if there is rain in the forecast. You are welcome to bring your own snacks and beverages on the boat, but please no coolers.
Lake Superior lake trout fishing is a great experience for all ages. You need no experience to have a good time. Although lake trout is the primary species caught, salmon are a possible catch as well! You are able to keep the fish that you choose and the captain will take care of the cleaning process for you.
