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 38 ft fishing vessel, and is powered by twin 385HP Crusader engines. It can accommodate up to six anglers, and being 14 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 (32 years old), 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 am 32 years old and have spent over half of my life on the waters of Lake Michigan trolling for Salmon and Trout. It never gets old seeing a customer thrilled and excited fighting a salmon or a trout.

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!
