My name is Captain Tony Bovenzo and I am the owner/operator of Diamond Ghost Charters I have been servicing your salmon and trout fishing needs for 24 years. A full time captain fishing 7 days a week. My boat can accommodate parties from 1 to 6 persons. We offer sport fishing charters for salmon, trout out of North Point Marina in Winthrop Harbor Illinois, on Lake Michigan. Fishing at its best. Trolling is the best and easiest way to catch these tasty fish for your dinner table. I have many Salmon Recipes that are out of this world and you need to try them

I have been deep sea fishing and fishing with different charters on Lake Michigan for a number of years. Tony had us catching fish in the first 30 minutes, and throughout the trip, even in the cold and rain, we came close to limiting out,...More

We limited out on our morning Charter with Captain Tony. We headed out to 200' and had 2-3 on soon after the lines were set. Tony runs a tight ship and keeps it fun.
