Each charter fishing operation may have some specific recommendations on what to bring, and what you need to be prepared with, so be sure to check with your specific charter service for further information. Some basic recommendations or requirements include:
- Minnesota or Wisconsin fishing license with the appropriate trout and salmon stamp is required. For those folks without, licenses are available on most boats; check beforehand.
- Weather on Lake Superior is constantly changing, and a nice day can quickly become chilly, and vice versa. Warm clothing, specifically clothing that can be layered and removed as-needed, is ideal. For your comfort, wear soft-soled shoes. Bring rain gear, just in case. A fishing trip on the Lake is much more enjoyable when you come prepared.
- Apply and bring sunscreen. We strongly encourage you to wear sunglasses with a cap or hat.
- Bring a camera and/or video recorder to document the day’s catch!
- You are responsible for your own food and beverage.
- Bring a cooler with ice to transport your fish home.
