Long Gone 3 Charters

Capt. Jim Goebel Waukegan, IL Incorporated Licensed Insured

Explore the unlimited fishing opportunities that Lake Michigan has to offer with Captain Jim and Long Gone 3 Charters! Spend the day on the beautiful and bountiful Lake Michigan catching incredible Salmon and jumbo Perch with the Top Captain in Waukegan, Illinois. 

 

Captain Jim Goebel is a 3rd generation fisherman on Lake Michigan. He proudly took over Long Gone 3 Charters from Loren Goebel, after spending his whole life fishing this great lake. Captain Jim provides a professional, family friendly trip for any and all anglers looking to bend some rods. No prior fishing experience is needed! If this is going to be your first fishing trip, Captain Jim will be happy to teach you the techniques he’s spent a lifetime mastering. 

 

Get ready to fish on Long Gone 3 Charter’s beautiful 33ft Sportfisherman. She was originally built in 2009 and is powered by dual 330hp engines. Captain Jim Goebel has outfitted his vessel with top of the line fishing and navigational equipment. Long Gone 3 Charter’s downriggers will make it easier to troll multiple rods at a variety of depths, vastly increasing the number of fish you’ll be able to catch on the day. Captain Jim has all of the required licensing and insurance needed to be able to fish up to 6 anglers on Long Gone 3 Charters. 

 

You have a variety of trips to choose from, perfect for any angler. Whether you’re coming with a small party of 3, or a full party of 6, Captain Jim has the trip for you! For the anglers looking to get the full Lake Michigan fishing experience, Captain Jim highly recommends his 8hr fishing package. This will allow him time to guide you to more of his “honey holes”, meaning more fish in the cooler for you! No matter which trip you decide to book, the price for the day includes the use of Long Gone 3 Charter’s top of the line Rods, Reels, and Terminal Tackle, and at the end of the day, Captain Jim and his crew will clean and fillet your catches! 

 

Each species does have its own peak seasons, but Captain Jim has identified the feeding and migration patterns of the local game fish found in Lake Michigan. He’ll be able to help you catch Lake Trout, Coho Salmon, King Salmon, Steelhead, and Yellow Perch. 

 

Load up your coolers with the freshest Salmon fillets you’ll ever get your hands on! Captain Jim Goebel and the Long Gone 3 Charter crew are looking forward to showing YOU why they’ve dedicated their lives to fishing on Lake Michigan. You’re just a few clicks away from reserving your trip with the top charter service operating out of Waukegan, Illinois. Book today!
