My name is Captain Peter Nied, and I am a full-time U.S.C.G. Lic. Captain. That is important because I fish every day. I am the owner/operator of this business. Being a full-time captain ensures you that we won't spend a lot of wasted time deciding where to go or what to use. I have over 30 years experience on Lake Michigan, and I hold one of the oldest charter licenses on the Lake.

Aboard the Bandit 2 we fish out of Waukegan harbor. I’ve fished all over Lake Michigan (Kenosha (WI), Hammond (IN), Northpoint marina (IL), the reason why I fish out of Waukegan is simple, better fishing. In the years that I’ve been on Lake Michigan I can tell you that the hardest part about fishing is finding the fish. At Waukegan harbor I can get you to the fish faster than anyone on the lake… the only thing you have to do is reel them in! I have been aggressively fishing this area on Lake Michigan for over 30 years.

All of the trips that we offer are private charters, and all conveniences, amenities, and equipment are provided for a surely enjoyable fishing trip on the Great Lakes.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT ON A LAKE MICHIGAN FISHING CHARTER? If you never have had the chance to fish the "BIG LAKE" or are considering a charter for this summer, you should really give it a try! There is no where else you can go in the Midwest and consistently catch the size and amount of fish that you do on Lake Michigan! What about cost? You may be surprised! An average fishing charter will probably cost you less per person than dinner and drinks at a fancy restaurant!

WHAT IF I HAVE NEVER BEEN FISHING BEFORE? No problem! Although the fish we catch can be pretty big, the equipment I use on board Bandit 2 is sturdy and easy to use. You'll receive plenty of instructions how to use the equipment and tips on fighting the fish, and feel free to ask on questions.... I want you to get as much out of your trip as you do!!

WHAT KIND OF FISH WILL WE CATCH? The size, species, and numbers of fish will depend mainly on what time of the season you take your charter best time to fish in the menu). But the general rule of thumb is springtime, large quantities of fish, but smaller in average size. In the summer, larger size fish and more variety of species. In the fall, typically the largest fish of (see the year, trophy fish! While fishing conditions do change, you can be assured that we will put you on to the hottest action possible!!

WHAT WILL I NEED TO BRING ON A FISHING CHARTER? Actually surprisingly little! All the fishing equipment is provided for you, so you'll only need to bring: food, drinks, adequate clothing, a cooler to transport your fish home, and a fishing license. If you don't have a license we sell 1-day licenses on the boat. (See also What to Bring on the menu bar).

WHAT KIND OF BOAT WILL WE BE ON? Bandit 2 charters is a sport fishing machine. The boat is properly outfitted with all of the Coast required safety and navigational equipment is thoroughly inspected, insured and maintained. we are federally Guard licensed captain and your safety and comfort is my number one priority!

HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN I BRING? By license we only allowed to carry up to six passengers. However, six people is not a required number! Charter rates are adjusted by the number in your group (See rates main menu). Bandit 2 is also able to easily accommodate large groups (Extra Boats) charters for fund-raisers, office outings, etc.

WHAT IF THE WEATHER IS BAD? In the event that your captain determines the lake is to rough to fish, our staff will do their best to notify you ahead of time and re-schedule your date. However, there may be days when this decision is made at the dock. Your deposit will be forwarded to another date. We do fish in the rain, so be prepared and bring your rain gear!
