Chicago Salmon and Trout Fishing Charters

We are a fully licensed and insured fishing charter on Lake Michigan.

Fun And Relaxing

This is your Charter. We Love to be out on the water and we want you to feel the same way. Our Charters are about having fun and relaxing. We strive to give our customers the best experience possible.

Faster Boats = More Time Fishing.

The Storm Warning boats are some of the fastest charter boats on Lake Michigan. On a typical 6 hour trip we are able to fish for a hour longer then most of the charter fleet because we can get to the fish faster.

Best Fishing On Lake Michigan

In Illinois and especially Chicago we are very lucky to have such a diverse and year round fishery. There are times of year when we get more of one species of fish then anoher but there are always lots of fish around.

The Captain

Captain Brian has been fishing his entire life from small lakes in a row boat to giant tuna in the cobalt blue waters of the ocean. Salmon fishing on Lake Michigan is his passion and he has been chasing salmon for the last 10 years.


Storm Warning Chicago Fishing Charters is located right in the heart of Downtown Chicago in Burnham Harbor. We also fish out of Indiana and Waukegan in the fall threw spring. Call us at (630) 332-0706

We Love Family Fishing Charters
