What People Are Saying About Lake Trout Fishing in Illinois

"Fishing Like of Egypt "

Donald Rizzs fished with Full Moon Fishing Service on September 13, 2019

Another great fishing trip with captain Fred of Full Moon Fishing Service. I will only use Captain Fred on any of my fishing trips. We fished Lake of Egypt this time. We caught channel catfish and crappies. I caught a two pound crappie. I was very excited. Thank you Fred for a great day of fishing. Don

"Half day trip with Long Gone 3 Charters"

Ronald Foutch fished with Long Gone 3 Charters on August 7, 2019

Had the best time ever with my wife and daughter on Capt. James 36 foot vessel. We caught the limit on Lake Trout and hauled in some tasty Salmon. One very beautiful day. Highly recommend this charter!!

"O Dark Thirty run with Capt Jim"

Robert Patka fished with Long Gone 3 Charters on July 7, 2019

Simply put, Capt Jim is a true PRO and a great guy all around. He worked his keester off and found us fish all morning. In the pics I'm the Rodfather geezer in the yellow hat. We caught our limit, had a blast on a terrific true working fishing boat, the Lake was calm, the sun shining. What more could anyone ask. If you have the chance, book with Long Gone 3, you will not be disappointed.
