About Us

Battalion 1 Sport-Fishing charters is located at two of the top fishing ports on Lake Michigan in both Illinois and Wisconsin. We will be fishing the southern shores of Lake Michigan in Winthrop Harbor, IL for the months of April, May, and June. As this is nearly the best time to fill your coolers with some of the greatest action of the season on Coho salmon, and Steehead. Centrally located between the cities of Chicago and Milwaukee, Battalion 1 is able to service the needs of sport fishing anglers from Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin. Our premier service offers fun-filled Lake Michigan salmon and trout fishing charters for all anglers. Join us aboard the Battalion 1, a 36 foot Tiara Yacht, designed for fishing and comfort. We are fully licensed and insured as a commercial charter boat in the state of Illinois.

Starting in the middle of June our charter service will relocate up to our northern port of Algoma, WI. Algoma is located on the base of the door county peninsula and is famed for having some of the largest king salmon on Lake Michigan. Our season starts there in June and will continue through the month of October. Our premier service offers fun-filled Lake Michigan salmon and trout fishing for all anglers. Join us aboard the Battalion 1, a 36 foot Tiara designed for fishing charters and comfort.
