Trip Information for your charter on
Lake Michigan

This is a fully operational Lake Michigan Charter fishing service.  We are insured and are licensed Captains.  We fish on two 40 Foot Pacemaker Sportfishermens. We go out 7 (VII) days a week and fish April thru October.  Captain Frank has worked on charter boats for 20 years.  We fish out of Northpoint Marina in Winthrop Harbor, Illinois if the opportunity presents itself to be the best area to catch the most amount of fish. My charter boats are docked at Simmons Island in Kenosha, Wisconsin for the majority of the season.  This keeps us closest to the Salmon and Trout to optimize fishing and make the best out of the trip.  During April/May fishing charters we catch large quanities of Coho Salmon (Silver Salmon), this is a great time of year to catch your limit of fish. Throughout the rest of the season we catch more of the trophy size fish, and a mixed bag of fish including Lake trout, Brown trout, Coho Salmon, Chinook Salmon (King Salmon) and Steelhead (Rainbow Trout).  You will have a great opportunity to catch trophy Salmon and Trout aboard Twenty Four VII and the Twenty Four VII 2. 

We work hard to give you the best experience fishing on Lake Michigan any time of the year!

Best time of year to fish: 

Every month has something great to offer!!

April/May

We fish out of Winthrop Harbor, Illinois and Kenosha, Wisconsin.  Limit catches of Coho Salmon are common this time of year along with catching King Salmon, Brown and Rainbow Trout

 

June

In Kenosha, Wisconsin the action for Coho Salmon continues to be very strong with King Salmon, and trout staying in the mix.  

July/August

Early morning bite for King Salmon is great this time of year.  Also Salmon and Trout action is excellent offshore .  Offshore fishing has become an adventure out on Lake Michigan.  Multi-species fish can be caught for some action packed adventure.  

  

September/October

These are the months for catching variety salmon and trout.
