About our Captain

I (Captain Parker) have been fishing Lake Superior since before I could walk and have never stopped fishing it.  I grew up in the port city of Duluth, Minnesota, but moved away for university to attend Northern Michigan University in Marquette, Michigan.

While pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry, I spent as much time out on the lake and in the woods as possible. This was the chance to fish and explore Lake Superior from a new perspective!

On an ice fishing trip a few months before I was set to graduate (2012), I had a nearly fatal run in with a snowmobile: I was left stranded on the ice with two broken legs. Since that accident, I have taken a new meaning to life. I have decided to follow my passions, and fishing is one of them.  

Before purchasing my own vessel I worked as a guide and captain for another Duluth based charter company and realized it was my calling.  Superior Pursuits is my opportunity to share my love of fishing and an appreciation for the great natural resources we have within the Great Lakes. 

I want Superior Pursuits to not only to be a first-class fishing guide service, but an account of my adventures as I explore the best places to fish and hunt in the USA. Whether you just use some tips and tricks from my blog or you book an unforgettable trip aboard Invictus, I can’t wait to share what I know with you .

Superior Pursuits has up-to-date information about fishing tactics for the Great Lakes, Midwest and surrounding area.  As a Captain, I am always doing research and testing out new ways to target lake trout, salmon, steelhead, brown-trout, walleye, and muskie.  I’m always looking to add to my knowledge, but also to find new ways to enjoy the great fishery the Great Lakes offer.  I have fished 3 of the 5 Great Lakes (Lake Superior, Lake Michigan, and Lake Huron), and intend to fish all 5.

I love fishing and want to share this passion with you; climb aboard The Superior Pursuit with Captain Parker and his first mate Remi (the fish dog), this summer in Duluth, MN.

In addition I am a US Coast Guard Licensed Captain and Minnesota and Wisconsin Licensed Guide.
