Captain Bob Poteshman’s Lake Michigan Fishing Charters
I hope you enjoy your voyage into information on the Midwest’s greatest fishing experience.
Big Game fishing on the Great Lakes for Salmon and Trout. We have 2 great main season locations for charter fishing on Chicago’s lakefront.
My Charter Boats The CONFUSION, The CONFUSION TOO, The CONFUSION 3, CONFUSION C4 & MASSIVE CONFUSION are located conveniently near Chicago in Northpoint Marina (1 hour North of Chicago) on the Illinois – Wisconsin border in the town of Winthrop Harbor & Montrose Harbor which is Chicago’s Northernmost Marina located 10 minutes from Downtown Chicago on Lake Shore Drive.
The CONFUSION which is a 38foot Custom Tiara Express, The CONFUSION TOO which is a Flybridge 38foot Pacemaker Sportfisherman & The CONFUSION 3 which is a 34 Foot Sea Ray Express Fishermanand and The MAGNUM 33 Foot Custom Hard Top Tiara are loaded for battle with all the amenities of the other boats but with an added bonus of speed all operate out of North Point Marina which is located 1 hour north of Chicago in Northpoint Marina. This area features some of Lake Michigan Fishing at it’s best for Salmon and Trout charters. We start charter fishing in the Spring for Coho Salmon & Brown trout on Lake Michigan’s Southwest waters out of Pastrick Marina in Northwest Indiana and finish out the year fishing for Lake Trout and Brown Trout out of Waukegan Harbor.
The CONFUSION C4 which is a Flybridge 38foot Pacemaker Sportfisherman & The newest of the fleet the MASSIVE CONFUSION a 38foot Delta Custom Charter boat which is built from the ground up as a passenger vessel for fishing and will be available for larger groups of more than 6 passenger (To be determined by the US Coast guard but expected to handle groups up to 12 passengers). These 2 vessels operate charters out of Montrose Harbor which is located 10 minutes from downtown Chicago on Chicago’s famous Lake Shore Drive. Chicago fishing charters are excellent all Summer long and typically go from Late May through early November. As in Northpoint Marina the main species of fish we catch are Salmon and Trout.
For the Early Bird fisherman we offer early Spring Lake Michigan Fishing Charters out of Northwest Indiana in Pastrick Marina from Mid March through Late April for Coho Salmon, Brown Trout and Yellow Perch. Northpoint Marina also offers Perch fishing which is spectacular in April through early May. The Chicago Montrose Harbor location offers excellent Perch fishing in the months of June and August (Illinois rules do not allow July Perch Fishing for adults).
For the true late season angler The Confusion boats fish out of Northpoint Marina and Montrose Harbor in Late Fall for Monster Lake Trout & Fall King Salmon. We cater to all types of fishing charters and Lake Michigan excursions including shoreline and fireworks evening charters. We alsocan handle multi boat corporate charters as well. All equipment is provided to allow you the best experience possible on a Lake Michigan fishing charter boat.
