Awesome start of the season!

The beginning of 2019 season has been noting short of spectacular. With abundance of bait fish near Chicago shore line, anglers enjoyed catching limits of Coho Salmon using power lines from the harbors or simply trolling for them. From this point on, the weather can only get better since it transitions from the spring pattern to a more stable state. Exciting days are ahead due to the appearance of King Salmon on a regular basis as well - and that, fellow fisherman, is the ultimate reward for anyone regardless of age or gender. If you’d like to take a part of the fun, simply plan your trip ahead of time for a chance to enjoy everything the city of Chicago has to offer, including the fishing experience of a life time!

Happy 2017! We have some big changes in store for Why Knot Charters. We are in the process of purchasing a new boat for this year. We are moving to a 25 foot boat that will be a fishing machine. This will help us be one of the most green charters on Lake Michigan as we will be burning much less fuel per trip. This equates to less cost for you the customer. A win win situation!
