Fishing On Lake Superior
The largest of the Great Lakes, Lake Superior is also the largest freshwater lake in the world, by surface area. This massive body of water covers 31,700 square miles and has 2,726 miles of shoreline. These impressive numbers create a fishing paradise so big it's hard to comprehend. Experience and knowledge are the two most important tools when fishing this lake. Your safety and potential for success are increased tremendously when you hire a guide or charter service. Trout and salmon are the big draws, but the lake also offers good fishing for bass, walleye, sauger, muskie, sunfish, pike and perch.
