What People Are Saying About Lake Trout Fishing in Illinois

"6-hr trip "

Luis Saucedo fished with Captain Don's Charter Service on August 19, 2018

Our family had a great time out in the water. Captain Don and his first mate, Pete (I believe that was his name, sorry if I screwed it up). We caught some really nice lake trout, largest I've ever caught, a nice 19.5 lbs fish. Would definitely go out with captain Don again and highly recommend to anybody who wants to have a great time fishing.

"Half Day Morning Trip"

Michael Wolf fished with Long Gone 3 Charters on August 16, 2018

Captain Jim was great. Got on the fish several times, caught salmon, lake & rainbow trout. Timely, good sense of humor, and cleaned the fish for me

"Great day at lake Michigan!"

Dzung Le fished with Twenty Four VII Charters on July 27, 2018

While visiting Waulkegan from Texas, I managed to squeeze in 1/2 day of fishing at lake Michigan with my wife and two boys. Cpt Frank Grider was real accommodating and courteous. 40 ft boat was comfortable with plenty of room, no problem handling some white caps out there. Awesome fishing gear and equipment. We had a great time. Hope to be back to fish with Twenty Four VII Charters again.
