Challenger Fishing Charters is one of the most productive fleets on Lake Michigan. From novice to experienced fishermen Captain Bob Jenkins guarantees fish with a generous NO FISH - NO PAY Policy! (Applicable to 8 hour charters only) Captain Bob Jenkins brings over thirty years of experience as a U.S.G.C. Licensed Captain.
We fish out of Waukegan Harbor, Waukegan IL. Waukegan Harbor is known for its World Class Perch, Salmon, and Trout Fishing. Our waters and weather are ideal for fishing and the “fishing holes” are close to port.
Our fleet is comprised of a 40 and 36 foot Trojan and both boats are powered by twin 454 Crusaders. Each boat is equipped with the latest technology for navigation, safety and finding the fish!
We have competitive rates to accommodate parties from 1-6 people. Daily rates are available for Perch, Salmon, or a combination of both. We also offer specials on 2-3 day fishing packages with lodging.
More then 6 people? No problem! Captain Bob will work with chosen partners to organize multiple boats for your party and act as your sole point of contact for your trip.
