Twenty Four VII Charters – Wisconsin

Capt. Frank Grider Kenosha, WI Incorporated Licensed Insured

My name is Captain Frank Grider Jr, owner and operator of Twenty Four VII Charters. I have been a charter captain on Lake Michigan for over 15 years. I’ll guide your group to fish out of Kenosha, WI and Winthrop Harbor, IL for Coho Salmon, King (Chinook) Salmon, Brown Trout, Lake Trout, Steelhead (rainbow trout).  My boat is one of the largest full-time charter boats on the western shore of Lake Michigan, it is 40 feet long, 15 feet wide, and very comfortable to fish aboard.  We look forward to getting you out on the water.

I fish 7 days a week on Lake Michigan from April thru October. I enjoy my career as a full-time professional guide and have worked years to understand what it takes to find and catch the fish of Lake Michigan. I’ll work hard to make sure you get hooked up in no time! If you are looking to fish with family, friends, or co-workers, give me the opportunity to show you a good time on the water while catching fish. You’re sure to have a fun, safe, and successful day of Lake Michigan fishing.

My boat, the Twenty Four VII is a 40ft Pacemaker Sportfisherman. Up to 6 passengers can come aboard, per USCG regulations. I’ll supply all your fishing gear and licenses. You can bring drinks, food, and separate cooler to take your fish home. We do have a bathroom onboard and an enclosed cabin if you need to take a break. Twenty Four VII has plenty of seating for our passengers, but is also a fishing beast with downriggers, outriggers, and livewell. Our First Mate will help with all aspects of fishing so you don’t need to have any experience.

Twenty Four VII trolls Lake Michigan for Trout, Salmon, and Steelhead. Fishing Lake Michigan is very seasonal, so what you catch depends on what time of year you’re fishing. Late Spring you’ll see Coho Salmon, along with King Salmon, Brown Trout, and Rainbow Trout. Summertime is by far the best season to fish Lake Michigan, with King Salmon and Trout showing good numbers. Before the weather drops in Fall you’ll see a variety of Salmon and Trout. We recommend booking your charter early, as we do book up quickly, especially in peak months of July and August.

I offer a variety of trips for your group of six: Half day or Full day trips. Half day trips run 6 hours long, while full day trips are 8 hours long. We fish where the fish are, depending on time of year and weather. Bring along your Wisconsin fishing license, extra cooler with food and drinks, and wear appropriate clothes for the weather (layered clothing or rain jackets). Anglers under the age of 16 do not need a fishing license.

Your family’s Lake Michigan fishing trip is just a click away! Book today with Twenty Four VII Charters today to reserve your spot and let’s go fishing!
