A few words about Optimum Charters

Capt. John Stieben

Our Lake Superior charter captains are in high demand as fishing guides in the Duluth and Superior area.

With 50+ years of combined experience and the finest equipment available, our captains deliver the greatest opportunity for a safe, enjoyable and successful day on the water.

Since 1982, we have cheerfully guided our guests in all aspects of Lake Superior fishing. Interested in personally rigging the tackle and landing the fish? Unlike some other charters, we will get you into the action, even if you have no experience. Or, if you prefer to sit back and relax with your family, friends or co-workers while we run the lines, we are glad to accommodate that, too. Either way, we’ll create great memories together.
