At the peak of my cabin fever this year, I picked up a copy of
“The death and life of the Great Lakes”
By Dan Egan.
Great history of the lakes. Also tough to read some of the destruction we’ve caused.
Pretty interesting for someone to imagine the lake without king salmon swimming around the bonnet
at one time. Or swimming without zebra Mussels to cut your bare feet.

I actually found it at my local library. I’m pinching my penny’s to buy an xi5!

I'm going to read that.

When I first moved to the area in 78 there were two brother's, Rock and Howard Hawley. They were probably in their upper 60's and had been commercial fisher men.

They talked about fishing, probably in the 30's. They said they use to spear sturgeon in the mouth of the Napanee River. They still had the old fish shack with a cleaning table complete with a treadle operated clamp for holding the fish.

They said there was also a time when the Bay was dead.

Looking forward to reading more about that. I'm going to hit the library too. Also saving for fishing stuff.

Enjoy the xi5.
