Twenty Four VII Charters

443 50th Street
Kenosha WI, United States

Twenty Four VII Charters operates out of Kenosha, Wisconsin at Simmons Island Marina, as well as from Winthrop Harbor, Illinois at Northpoint Marina.

The ‘Twenty Four VII’ is a very large 40 ft fishing vessel, and is powered by twin 385 HP Crusader engines. It can accommodate up to six anglers, and being 15 ft wide, it offers a comfortable and spacious cabin with seating for everyone, plus a big back deck that is never too crowded. The boat also has a clean bathroom aboard.

Captain Frank offers morning and afternoon trips, with start times varying for both depending on the month and species being targeted. You will have the opportunity to go after species such as King Salmon (Chinook Salmon), Coho Salmon (Silver Salmon), Rainbow Trout (Steelhead), Lake Trout, and Brown Trout. The best starting times will be suggested, and can also be adjusted to work with any group’s trip. Trips include all necessary rods, reels, tackle and lures, while Wisconsin fishing licenses are able to be purchased on board for $14 a person.

At the end of every trip you will have the opportunity to take plenty of group and individual photos with the fish, and the crew will then clean and bag them for you to take home. Captain Frank is a younger captain with plenty of experience and knowledge to make your trip safe and enjoyable. Give Captain Frank the chance to show you a good time and he will keep you coming back year after year!

I’ve been on many charters and this was among the very best.  Capt. Frank is a likable guy who keeps a well equiped, clean boat and works hard to find and catch fish.  The 1st day (6 hr. trip) we got 2 nice Chinooks and 6 Cohos with a few more hooked and lost.  The second day we went out on an afternoon charter and due to all the charter boats having a problem finding fish in the morning Capt. Frank ran 12 miles out to 250 ft. of water and put us onto some steelhead and lakers.  He goes to extremes to put you on fish so I highly recommend him.  Thanks for a memorable trip Frank and I hope I can make it back to do it again.

We had an amazing day out on the lake with Captain Frank. I’ve been on multiple charter trips, some good, and some not as good. Frank was patient, knowledgeable, and extremely easy going. My husband and I took four teenagers and we were all able to bring in nice sized fish. The boat was kept meticulously clean and his equipment was in perfect working order. Our charter trip was worth every penny. To see the excitement in the kids’ faces as they reeled in giant lake trout or Salmon was priceless! I would highly recommend Twenty Four VII, as I believe this was absolutely one of the best charters I have ever been on. Thanks Captain Frank!
