Q2: What's provided?
A1: Any food or drinks that you would like to eat during your trip. Alcoholic drinks are allowed on the boat but please drink responsibly. Make sure that you dress for the weather. This is Chicago and the weather can change quickly. I would also recommend that you bring your camera to take pictures of all the fish that we bring in during the trip. You never know when we might get that big one! You will also be required to have an Illinois State Fishing License either a one day license or a seasonal license with a Lake Michigan Salmon Stamp.
A2: My 35+ years of fishing and captain expertise on Lake Michigan. All the fishing equipment need for the trip. This includes: rods, reels, bait, downriggers, ect. At the end of your trip all the fish that you catch will be cleaned and bagged for your drive back home.
A3: Fishing License

Prices vary on the day and the number of people that you bring. My rates can be seen on the Rates page. All trips require a non refundable $50 deposit to be sent to my mailing address which is located on the Contact page.
A5: You can bring a max of 6 people, but I can organize multiple boats with other captains to accompany a charter that requires more than 6 people. In this case please have at least 8 people and it will require more time to setup.
A6: Yes, you can view my brochure by Clicking Here.
A7: By state law you are allowed 5 fish per person per trip.
A8: Yes, I still book Perch fishing charters. But the Perch season is very short and ends on May 31st. So, book your Perch charter as early as you can.
