We had an amazing day out on the lake with Captain Frank. I’ve been on multiple charter trips, some good, and some not as good. Frank was patient, knowledgeable, and extremely easy going. My husband and I took four teenagers and we were all able to bring in nice sized fish. The boat was kept meticulously clean and his equipment was in perfect working order. Our charter trip was worth every penny. To see the excitement in the kids’ faces as they reeled in giant lake trout or Salmon was priceless! I would highly recommend Twenty Four VII, as I believe this was absolutely one of the best charters I have ever been on. Thanks Captain Frank!

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Captain Frank is the most organized, knowledgeable Captain that we have fished with.  He uses high quality tackle. His boat is spotless and extremely comfortable and has a clean bathroom.

We had an great experience with Captain Frank today! All six of us were first timers and he was very patient and easy going. He explained everything thoroughly and helped when we needed it. We will definitely book again!

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.

If you’re looking for a lot of fun fishing on Lake Michigan, then this is your charter!  We caught our limit and Captain Frank made the trip very enjoyable.  Highly recommended

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.
