Twenty Four VII Charters – Kenosha

Lake Michigan offers some of the best freshwater fishing in the world, so join Twenty Four VII Charters to check it out! Captain Frank Grider has spent over half of his life fishing on these waters, so he’ll show you everything you need to know for a successful day.

You’ll head out on a large 40’ Pacemaker Sportfisherman boat, powered by twin 385 HP Crusader engines. It can accommodate up to 6 anglers. Being 15’ 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 bathroom on board for your convenience.

Capt. Frank will provide you with all the fishing equipment you’ll need – rods, reels, tackle, and lures. Note that you’ll have to buy Wisconsin fishing licenses on board at $14 per person. If you want to take some of the catch home, the captain will be happy to clean and fillet the fish, so you can take it straight to the table.

There are morning and afternoon trips, with start times varying depending on the month and target species. You will have the opportunity to go after species like Chinook and Coho Salmon, as well as Rainbow, Lake, and Brown Trout. The captain will suggest the best starting times, and adjust them to work with any group’s trip.

Give Capt. Frank the chance to show you a good time and he will keep you coming back year after year! He operates out of Kenosha, Wisconsin at Simmons Island Marina, as well as from Winthrop Harbor, Illinois at Northpoint Marina.

Join Twenty Four VII Charters and explore Lake Michigan for an exciting fishing adventure!

Captain Frank has spent over half of his life on the waters of Lake Michigan trolling for Salmon and Trout. Trolling with down riggers, surface planers, diving planers, and long lines, he maximizes the potential for a catch on every trip. Capt. Frank never gets tired of seeing a customer thrilled and excited when fighting a powerful fish and reeling in a delicious catch to take home.
