Captain Tony got us a ton of action during a tough time of year to bring in a good catch. Super nice guy, great to talk to and is an expert fisherman. Hopefully he will take me on as first mate someday would be an honor to serve under him! My entire family had a fantastic time and cleaning the fish while still out in the lake is quite an experience and saved us time so as soon as we docked we were ready to go. Thanks and looking forward to the next outing.

Many years ago I was surprise when my uncle took me fishing on the Diamond Ghost. I had so much fun and catch a 22lb lake trout. Thank God for Tony helping me reel it in. The experience from the start earlier than I normally wake to the hours on the water, than having Tony take care of the fish. Was the best fishing trip i have every been on. Totally worth every bit of it. Even though it's been years I still remember and wish to go back again. A must in my bucket list.

Date June 21st 2017 Father/Daughter from Canada have a blast fishing with Captain Tony We thoroughly enjoyed our charter with Captain Tony. He went overboard (ok not literally) to help us rookie fishermen. We had a gorgeous solstice morning watching the sun rise, catch our limit and then eat our Coho fillets at Linda's restaurant (also recommended - great people). We caught a nap at Illinois State Park next door while listening to the birds sing before returning to Chicago.
