Twenty Four VII Charters

701 North Point Drive
Winthrop Harbor IL, United States

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

Join Captain Frank aboard his large 40 ft fishing vessel ‘Twenty Four VII’, which is powered by twin 385HP Crusader engines and comes equipped with GPS, fishfinder, radar and VHF radio. On board you will find a clean bathroom, and with a 15 ft beam, the boat has a comfortable and spacious cabin with seating for all. The big back deck is never too crowded, and offers plenty of room for up to six anglers to get the most out of their fishing experience.

Flexible morning and afternoon trips are available, with departure times depending on the time of year and seasonality of species, and can be adjusted to accommodate your group’s needs. Some of the species you will target include King Salmon (Chinook Salmon), Coho Salmon (Silver Salmon), Rainbow Trout (Steelhead), Lake Trout, and Brown Trout. Capt. Frank will provide you with all the necessary rods, reels, tackle and lures, while Wisconsin fishing licenses can be purchased on board for $14 a person.

Every trip will end with the opportunity to take plenty of group and individual photos with your catch, which will then be cleaned and bagged for you by the crew. Captain Frank is a younger captain who is highly experienced, and has acquired much knowledge to make your trip as enjoyable and safe as possible. Let Captain Frank show you a good time on these waters, and he will keep you coming back time and again!

I am 34 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.
