Coho is on fire

Let me first thank Brian (the website previous owner) for the kind words of introduction and for the time he took from his busy schedule to walk me true to this website. It’s not an easy task to fill up the space already created with such craftsmanship and true passion for fishing adventures. Speaking of fishing with no further due I would like to share some good news about the great numbers of Coho salmon being caught in the recent couple of weeks. The fish quickly migrated from the south part of the lake in the month of late April and the beginning of May and made a quiet of appearance along the shore line in downtown Chicago. For those who targeted that species the reward was fish limits within an hour or two – for the power-liners and boaters alike. We were fortunate to take our fare share on our fishing trips with some mixed bags of lake trout, Coho and couple of big King salmon. Can’t get any better! Stay tuned for more since the season is getting in full swing and there is more fish to be caught!

New Changes in 2019!

New Changes in 2019!

The time has come to pass the business on to a fellow friend, captain, and avid angler. As of January 2019, Capt. Anton will be the new owner and operator of Why Knot Chicago Fishing Charters. I have the utmost confidence our customers over the past 5 years will enjoy every second on the water with Capt Anton. His 23 foot Key West walk around boat with a brand new Suzuki 250 is perfect for smaller groups. The future of Lake Michigan Salmon fishing is looking better every year and Chicago should continue to be one of the best places to fish throughout the year!

July = Big Salmon

July = Big Salmon

The ports to the north of Chicago and into Wisconsin have been struggling lately to find good numbers of fish. That’s because all of the fish are in the Chicago waters right now feeding on the massive amount of bait that is around. We are getting spoiled. Fishing should remain spectacular through the end of August! We have limited weekends open and a few weekday spots open the next 2 weeks. Call, text, or go ahead and book online to get your fishing charter scheduled! Here are some more fish pics from this past week!
