Fresh and Smoked Fish from Lake Superior shipped to your home.
Four-Suns Fish and Chips Outdoor Cafe
Celebrating 25 years in business in 2017

Lake Superior fish are some of the finest tasting fresh water fish in the world. The extremely cold waters of Lake Superior produce fish with firmer flesh and finer taste than fish coming from warmer waters.

Peterson's Fish Market is the supplier for the major restaurants in the Keweenaw Peninsula and the northwestern Upper Peninsula. When dining out in the Keweenaw, order some Lake Superior Whitefish or Trout for a special taste treat or pick up some fresh fish to cook for dinner.

Peterson's Fish Market is located on the north side of Hancock across from the Quincy Mine Shaft. Peterson's offers fresh Salmon, Trout, and Whitefish. We also offer smoked Salmon, Whitefish, Trout, and Herring. The hand smoking with native hardwoods brings out the delicate flavor of these fish. The fish are smoked hard with maple. The Petersons fish year round.

Peterson's just celebrated 25 years in the business at their fish market. Since 1992, Peterson's has shipped fish throughout the United States. Call Peterson's Fish Market at 906-482-2343 for a price quote on shipping fish to your home. Fish are available throughout the year.

Fresh fish Upper Peninsula
Every morning before dawn, most of the Peterson family heads out in either the Three Suns or the The Ritter Bros, fishing tugs for Lake Superior. The Three Suns and the Ritter Bros are equipped with radar, loran, GPS, a ship to shore phone and a cell phone. When the fish are brought on board, the catch is reported by phone to Pat at the Fish Market in Hancock. By mid morning, the phone at the market is ringing while people are coming in to get the fish report and to purchase fish. By noon, the cleaned fish are being brought into the shop. Some are refrigerated for sale that day and some are put into the smoker for sale the next day.

When you go through Hancock, stop at Petersons to say "Hi" and see how a northern fish market operates. Pick up some fresh or smoked fish to take home with you.

Ask to see the framed picture of the Three Sons breaking through the winter ice for fishing. The Three Suns is actually steered up on top of the ice and the weight of the boat then breaks through the ice. They then go on to the next unbroken ice and repeat the procedure. Eventually, they arrive at their fishing area and go to work providing fresh fish for you.

At Peterson's you can pick up fresh fish for dinner and also arrange for fish to be shipped to you home at a later date.
Shipping costs are variable depending on the temperature at your location.
