Types of Lake Michigan Salmon & Trout Fishing
Charters and Rates

Below is an overview of the length of charters and associated rates. All charters are available for either the morning or afternoon. The weekday and weekend rates below are to charter your private group of a maximum of six people (max by Coast Guard regulations). Charters on the Independence can also accommodate smaller, 2 & 3 person groups at a discount from Monday thru Thursday and are listed under the 2014 Weekday Rate Specials. Multiple vessel packages can also be arranged for groups larger than six people. If the Independence is  already reserved on the day(s) requested, Captain Rick has partnered with other excellent captains in Waukegan Harbor and will be happy to make arrangements with them for you to fish. The Windycitysalmon Association of Charter Boats, started by Captain Rick, takes the guesswork of having you call other unknown charter boat operations, in search of an opening. All charter fishing packages and prices remain the same when Captain Rick arranges a reservation for you on another boat.

Which salmon fishing charter is right for you?

6 Hour Fishing Charter: Captain Rick recommends this charter for ALL charters from June thru October. As the season progresses, schools of fish will often be found in deeper waters and the extra hour is often instrumental in maximizing more time to reach these fish and fine tune our presentation techniques.

8 Hour Fishing Charter: This charter offers the most value and gives us the ultimate flexibility in pin-pointing our presentation techniques as well as experimenting with others in order to offer you the best chance of catching both more and larger fish.

5 Hour Fishing Charter: Captain Rick recommends this for the Spring Coho Run in May.

Morning charters leave the dock at either 5am or 6am. Afternoon charters usually depart the dock at 11am or noon. There will also be times when we experience a hot bite earlier in the morning and when this occurs we will let you know the right time to start fishing.

We generally require a $100 deposit on a charter to be received within a week of booking in order to secure your reservation. 14-day cancellation is required for refund.
