Why Study Bugs?

  #
Aquatic insects and similar organisms have a long taxonomic history.  Ever since the first fly rod was cast, fishermen have sought to understand the cuisine of their quarry.  Stream ecologists may occasionally wet a line too, but they seek to understand the organisms for other reasons.  Invertebrate populations act as indicator organisms for the ecosystem.  How so?

Fishing Report - 5/23/2003

  #

Lake St. Clair
Weather has been more of a factor with anglers on Lake St. Clair than the fish have. High winds and rain have kept anglers at bay. Those who are getting out report a fair walleye bite in Anchor Bay and at the mouth of the Detroit River. Jigs tipped with minnows are producing the best results. Some nice perch also are being caught in the area of Cotton Road. Anglers are reminded that bass season does not open on Lake St. Clair until June 21 and muskie season does not open until June 7.
Selfridge Sport & Tackle (586) 949-2998.
Jimmy’s Boat Livery (586) 468-6000.

New boundary for Detroit River

  #

The legal boundary separating the Detroit River and Lake Erie has been changed, which will affect fishing for muskellunge and bass when those seasons open in the river next month. The new boundary is an imaginary east-west line across the southern tip of Celeron Island, four miles south of the previous boundary. The change means the area between Oak Street in Wyandotte and the new boundary is considered Great Lakes connecting waters. It will be subject to an opening date of June 7 for muskies and June 21 for largemouth and smallmouth bass.   more...

Wanted: More walleye in bay

  #

Saginaw Bay is one of the country's legendary walleye fisheries, a place where one fish often weighs more than a six-fish limit in places like Wisconsin and the Dakotas.

Biologists estimate that about 750,000 of the glassy-eyed, toothy predators roam the bay's 1,000 square miles of shallow green water, and each year anglers take home 65,000 to 70,000 of them. Most are 3- to 4-pounders, and the occasional giant exceeds 10. While walleye numbers are good, they once were a lot better.  more...





Editorial: DNR needs homegrown chief

  #
BY ERIC SHARP
FREE PRESS COLUMNIST

LANSING -- The good news for Michigan residents is that K.L. Cool will soon be history as director of the Department of Natural Resources. But whether that's followed by bad news or more good news will depend on the person the Natural Resources Commission selects as his replacement.

After 6 1/2 years of Cool's leadership, the DNR has lost many of its most experienced and effective employees, and morale is miserable. The agency is facing a fiscal crisis that is partly of Cool's making, and many of the thousands of hunters and anglers who should be Cool's strongest constituents spit on the ground at the mention of his name.   more...

Environmental groups support fees for water polluters

  #

Several environmental organizations have come together in a campaign entitled Stand Up For Michigan's Waters, which gives those who discharge waste into Michigan's waters an incentive to reduce pollution: They must pay for their discharges.

According to Cyndi Roper, state director of Clean Water Action, Stand Up For Michigan's Waters began because direct discharge permits have been given cost-free to over 1,500 firms, municipalities and others in Michigan to allow them to discharge waste into the state's waters.   more...

Love of the lake motivates maritime association's board

  #
The Lake Superior Maritime Museum Association isn't one of those nonprofits that operates out of a mahogany boardroom, just making a few well-placed calls to raise cash.

Not that some of the prominent Twin Ports citizens on the board probably couldn't do just that.

Nope, these volunteers climb right in the exhibit cases to chase dust bunnies and polish brass, said Thomas Holden, director of the Lake Superior Maritime Visitor Center. The association provides financial support and volunteers to the 29-year-old museum and visitor center in Duluth's Canal Park.  more...

Canal dredging alternatives expected in June

  #

EAST CHICAGO -- The East Chicago Waterway Management District Board updated progress on the proposed dredging of the Indiana Harbor and Ship Canal on Tuesday, although some people said they left the meeting with more questions than answers.

On the topic of design of the confined disposal facility, evaluation of dredging and handling alternatives are now expected to be completed by the end of June. The groundwater control system conceptual design also should be finished by then.  more...

GAO says lakes’ environmental efforts lack coordination

  #
Great Lakes officials have made it known in Washington that they envy the $8 billion restoration package that Florida’s congressional delegation secured for the Everglades in 2000, the largest single investment America has ever made in an ecosystem.

But a report released yesterday by the U.S. General Accounting Office suggests that the Great Lakes region should envy how well South Florida has coordinated programs to do the work there, too.   more...

2003 SPA Regatta

  #

With 836 boats entered and over 1200 competitors, the ISAF Grade 1, 2003 SPA Regatta, which commences on Wednesday 21 May, guarantees to be a tough contest with the worlds best Olympic class sailors competing in all eleven of the Olympic disciplines.

The single handed Laser dinghy has attracted the most entries with 178 boats competing including the six times world champion and double Olympic medallist Robert SCHEIDT (BRA), who will be looking to defend his regatta win from 2002. Competition will be tough and with such a large entry number the fleet will compete in a series of qualifying races before sailing finals on Saturday and Sunday.   more...





Concern for solo sailor swells as time passes with no word

  #
Frank Guernsey's wife asked him why he planned to sail a tiny sloop around Cape Horn -- the turbulent passage between South America and Antarctica -- and the veteran skipper likened the challenge to climbing Mount Everest without oxygen tanks.

When she asked why he refused to pack a long-distance radio, a life raft or the satellite signal beacon she had bought him, the answer was much harder to accept. ``He told me he didn't want to endanger any other people's lives by trying to save him,'' Mary Guernsey said.
Today, Guernsey's family is experiencing the agony. It has been seven months since they last received word from the adventurer from Redondo Beach, Calif.

Last Oct. 8, Guernsey packed up his 22-1/2-foot Pearson Electra sailboat, dubbed ``MF,'' slipped out of Redondo's King Harbor and began the 10,000-mile journey to Cape Town, South Africa.   more...

Sailing in their souls

  #
Christine Crawford probably could identify with Christopher Cross when he sang about "Sailing."

"It is in your soul," the 38-year-old Wooster woman said. "You are with the wind and the water. It's just you and nature."

Crawford was on hand Sunday at Charles Mill Lake Park for the Mohican Sailing Club's open house. Crawford became hooked on sailing a year ago when she attended her first open house.

"We didn't have a boat or anything, but we had an interest in sailing," she said. "About two weeks later, we came back with a boat. We logged a little over 100 hours last summer."   more...

STILL HAPPENING

  #

Buddy Melges sailing with Tony Jewett, Katie Jewett and Chris Andert won the 2003 Lake Geneva Spring E-Scow Regatta in decisive fashion, being the only boat to stay in the top ten every race during the five race event. Fleets from as far as Colorado, New Jersey, Michigan, Indiana joined the locals from Wisconsin and Minnesota. Winds were moderate to heavy from the East with brilliant sunny skies and temperatures were in the 60's and 70's - ideal spring racing conditions.  more...
