Now, not all fishing charters are equal. The services included in the package you select can make a big difference in how much you enjoy your time. First, there is the boat. In general, a bigger boat, or at least a wider boat, will have less sway with the waves for anybody prone to sea sickness. Lake Michigan can get choppy or have high waves. People prone to sea sickness should try to stay near the center of the boat and consider taking Dramamine before the trip. Along with the size of the boat, the speed of the boat can be an important factor. A slower boat will limit how far you can travel to get to the fish or reduce the amount of time you get to have the lines in the water. Larger boats also have the advantage of setting up multiple rods and allowing more people to be actively fishing at once. Smaller boats usually do set up multiple rods, but a larger boat can simply have more.
The boat may also have some luxury features, such as an air-conditioned or heated cabin, satellite television, or an on board freezer. Depth and fish finders are fairly standard, but you should still check to see what the guide uses during the trip. Most charter boats will have equipment for you to use, such as rods, reels, tackle, and nets. If you want to use your own rod and reel, you should check to see if it will work with their pole mounts.
Last, the services offered can vary greatly depending on which of the many fishing charters you are considering. Services like cleaning, freezing, and packaging may be included or not with a charter boat. One should also consider which harbor the boat leaves from. Many charters leave far north from the city in Waukegan.
When deciding which fishing charter is the best fit for your needs, the size of the boat, the boat’s features, and the additional services are the biggest concerns. While there are many advantages to a large charter boat, price will certainly be a factor in the decision and some people prefer to “rough it” a bit more when out fishing.
