Breezy 1 Sportfishing

Capt. Shawn Keulen Winthrop Harbor, IL Incorporated Licensed Insured

My name is Captain Shawn Keulen and I would like to invite you to experience some of the most exciting salmon and trout fishing in North America, right here in Winthrop Harbor, Illinois! Reserve your charter today with Breezy 1 Sportfishing!

You’ll be trolling Lake Michigan in no time on my 38ft Sport Fisherman with twin 420hp Cummins engines. We’ll get to the fishing grounds quickly and get lines in the water to start your day of fishing. Downriggers and outriggers are included, and we have a livewell full of bait. With a top notch First Mate, the best Fishfinder and GPS navigation brands, and all the comforts of home, you’ll have a day of successful fishing and lifelong memories!

Your family will be comfortable aboard this vessel that has an enclosed and air-conditioned cabin. The salon has plenty of seating and a TV, there’s a kitchen with a refrigerator and sink, and the bathroom has toilet and shower. You won’t even be able to tell you’re on the water! This is a great vessel for families and large groups. We can accommodate 4-6 passengers on this vessel; for larger groups we can coordinate with other charters.

Breeze 1 Sportfishing packages are customized for groups of four and six passengers. All trips last six hours and we’ll target the fantastic fishery of Lake Michigan. Species we’ll find at the end of the line include Trout, Steelhead, King Salmon and Coho Salmon. When trolling we will drag the bait behind the boat and attract the fish to the lure. The speed of the boat is an important part of this technique, one that the Captain and Crew has perfected. Once we get the fish on the hook you’ll be reeling it in, and we’re happy to help with the fight!

Once the fish is in the boat we will dehook and get you ready for the next run. All harvested fish will be cleaned and filleted at the end of the trip at no extra cost. You’ll be able to enjoy a delicious Salmon dinner that very night! Fresh Salmon is really great in sushi, or you can grill, fry, or bake it. There’s nothing like catching your own dinner!

Bring your family to fish with Breezy 1 Sportfishing Charters and Captain Shawn. You won’t regret spending the day fishing Lake Michigan, it’s always a blast!
