Emily has been Charter fishing for 6 years. She works very hard on getting fish in the boat to enhance your overall experience. When she is netting a fish, be watchful of where she is putting the net. Emily and her husband have their own boat as well, but she works full time during the week and can only help on weekends. This works out great for our team.
Captain Scott Berndt was born in Hayward, and raised in Superior, Wisconsin. At the age of 10 he started Lake Superior fishing with his Father, fishing most of the weekend when weather permitted. This continued on till age 18 when he joined the Military for a 23 ½ year career. After retiring from the U. S. Army he started fishing on Lake Superior once again. After finding no work in Superior, he moved to the City of Andover, Minnesota showing his children the love of fishing on Lake Superior.
