Serving the Chicago and southern Wisconsin area with world class Salmon and Trout charter fishing. The surrounding waters off Waukegan Harbor offer the best Salmon and Trout fishing available on Lake Michigan for you to enjoy an unsurpassed charter fishing experience all season long, right in Chicago's own back yard. Because of Waukegan Harbor's close proximity to many near-shore and off-shore structures as well as its geographic latitude – it's not too far north and not too far south – superb and consistent salmon and trout fishing is available from Spring thru Fall.
The vessel – Independence – is a 34-foot Tiara. A custom equipped and fully outfitted charter fishing boat designed exclusively for Great Lakes Salmon and Trout fishing. Windycitysalmon is a full-time, US Coast Guard Licensed and insured professional charter fishing operation. At the helm and on the fishing deck of the Independence, Captain Rick Bentley is on the water nearly every single day during the fishing season, ensuring an intense effort at putting his customers on the fish. The Independence is maintained to shipshape cleanliness and complies with all state and federal safety regulations.
