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 38 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 14 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 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 all had a great time. 6 people. Drove 13hrs to get there and well worth it. Captain Frank worked hard to keep us on the fish. Our experience was better than we expected. Would definitely recommend twenty four V11 charter. Already talking about our next trip.

This was my first trip to Lake Michigan to fish, and man did we fish! I booked Twenty Four VII for 2 half days with Capt Frank. There was five of us, and none have ever been out on Lake Michigan. We were scheduled to go out Saturday morning and again Sunday morning. Capt Frank called me Friday and told me the Lake was too rough to go out on Saturday morning but he thought we could probably go Saturday afternoon. We met him at the marina around 1pm and he said it was up to us but several other boats had turned around because it was still rough. We are an adventurous group so we decide to go out. It was and rock’n and roll’n time that we all loved! Capt Frank took us out about 8 miles and sure enough we were catching Coho in no time. Sunday was a real thrill. We went out around 6am and by 8:30 we had all but a caught our limit! Capt Frank knows where the fish are and he gets you there. He works really hard to make your trip fun and successful. I highly recommend booking a trip with him. I know we certainly will be going out with him again.
