Bama Breeze Sportfishing
One of our top picks in Winthrop Harbor. Bama Breeze Sportfishing was founded by Captain Josh Slawkin in 2015, and is based at North Point Marina in Winthrop Harbor, Illinois. Capt. Josh and the crew specialize in Salmon and Trout fishing charters on Lake Michigan, and are dedicated to putting you on as many fish as possible during your trip.
You will head out on the ‘Bama Breeze’, a 30’ Pacemaker sportfisherman that is powered by twin 305HP Chevy Block engines, taking it up to maximum cruising speeds of 20 knots. The boat is perfect for accommodating up to six anglers, and features a wide and spacious deck, flybridge, downriggers, GPS, fishfinder, radar and VHF radio. For your comfort, the cabin is fitted with a toilet, kitchen with refrigerator, TV and stereo.
Join the Bama Breeze Sportfishing team on one of their six or eight hour day trips, or three hour twilight trip, where they will guide you through different fishing techniques, including light and heavy tackle, bottom fishing and trolling, when targeting species such as Rainbow Trout, Lake Trout and Salmon. The Coho Salmon action is unbelievable between May to June, and having multiple fish hooked up at a single time with catching limits of 25-30 fish is not uncommon. Although fishing from July to September is generally slower, it is also prime time for large, reel-screaming King Salmon, and is by far the best for trophy-size fish! Trips include rods, reels and terminal tackle, lures, and fish cleaning and packaging. If the boat is unsuccessful in catching a fish during your charter, the Bama Breeze crew will give you a full refund.

I joined this trip on July 1st and 4th, 2 days, each 6 hours experience. This trip was really good, and I have never caught big fish like Lake Trout, or Rainbow Trout from shore, but it was pretty easy to fish from trolling boat as Josh and his assistant was very professional and giving us the proper advice. I could catch a big lake trout which is 38 inches and 23 lbs, and I asked salmon shop to stuff this one. This was really unforgettable memory we could have in IL. Thank you Josh! See you in September again.
