Get aboard Twenty Four VII Charters, and explore fishing out of Winthrop Harbor, Illinois, or out of Kenosha, Wisconsin. Captain Frank Grider has spent half of his life fishing the productive waters of Lake Michigan, so you can be sure that he’ll take you to all the best fishing spots.
You’ll be fishing on board his large 40’ Pacemaker offshore sportfishing boat, ‘Twenty Four VII’, powered by twin 385 HP Crusader engines. On board you will find a clean bathroom, and with a 15’ 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 6 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 Chinook and Coho Salmon, as well as Rainbow, Lake, and Brown Trout. Capt. Frank will provide you with all the necessary rods, reels, tackle and lures, while you can buy Wisconsin fishing licenses on board for $14 a person.
Every trip will end with the opportunity to take plenty of group and individual photos with your catch. The crew will then clean and bag it for you to take home. Capt. Frank is a younger captain who is highly experienced, and has acquired a lot of knowledge to make your trip as enjoyable and safe as possible.
Let him show you a good time on these waters, and he will keep you coming back to Twenty Four VII Charters time and again!
