Serving the Chicago and southern Wisconsin area with world class Salmon and Trout charter fishing. The surrounding waters off Waukegan Harbor offer excellent Salmon and Trout fishing on Lake Michigan for you to enjoy an unsurpassed charter fishing experience from April to October, 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 day during the fishing season, monitoring movements of the fish and what they are eating. The Independence is maintained to shipshape cleanliness and complies with all state and federal safety regulations. Captain Rick also features up-to-date, top-of-the-line gear – Penn International 975 and Shimano Tekota reels, high-speed Daiwa Saltist reels/Shimano Talora and Shakespeare Ugly Stik rods – these are the best, highest quality, well-maintained reels & rods you will find on any charter boat on Lake Michigan.



There is no experience required and Captain Rick will employ and manage the full spread of rods in an expert manner for your crew. All YOU have to do is haul in the fish and enjoy being out on the lake! For many of our customers – beginners or seasoned anglers – these are the largest fish they will ever catch! Windycitysalmon offers 5, 6, and 8 hour morning or afternoon fishing charters for your private group of up to 6 people. Smaller groups of 2 & 3 people can experience a more personal fishing adventure at discounted prices from Monday to Thursday. Additional vessels can also be arranged for groups larger than 6 people. In addition, multiple fishing charter packages with overnight stays are available for people who are not from the Chicago area and are seeking a more comprehensive fishing vacation. Please visit the Types of Charters and Rates page to learn which charters Capt Rick recommends depending on the season.
