Resolute Sportfishing Charters

Resolute Sportfishing Charters is one of the best charter operations on Lake Michigan’s western shore. Based out of Kenosha, Wisconsin, it offers you lake, nearshore, and offshore trips full of fun and excitement. Captain Jerry Costabile is an experienced angler who’ll cater to his guests’ needs regardless of their skill level. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t ever touched a rod and reel before or have fished your entire life, the system is designed so that everyone can enjoy this exciting sport fishery! And yes, children are welcome!

Riding on the captain’s 36’ Viking convertible is a pleasure in itself. This powerhouse of a boat can carry up to 6 guests and is powered by a twin 454 HP Mercruiser engine. Its comprehensive navigation technology comprises GPS, fishfinder, radio, as well as radar systems. The facilities include a kitchen, toilet, shower, and bed, as well as a flybridge. Note that the boat’s also wheelchair accessible and has got air conditioning. It’s equipped with downriggers, a refrigerator, and an ice-box.

You’ll have the pleasure of chasing wonderful fish species such as Chinook Salmon, Rainbow and Brown Trout, and more. By using heavy tackle, you and the captain will be trolling in order to catch them. You’ll be keeping all the fish you’ve caught so you can have some delicious meals back home. Remember that kids are more than welcome to join on board, so use this opportunity to have a great family outing.

The captain will cover you for rods, reels, tackle, and lure. He’ll also be cleaning and filleting your catch. Before you depart, you should bring fishing licenses, some food, and drinks.

Resolute Sportfishing Charters and Captain Jerry are waiting to take you on a fishing adventure!
