Cottagers fume as Lake Huron sinks

  #

Erosion of the St. Clair River has caused the water level in Lake Huron to drop by 12 centimetres over the past half-century, but nothing should be done about it, a much-anticipated binational Great Lakes Water study concludes.

That's because – contrary to claims by a group of cottagers – the river's erosion was caused naturally by one treacherous ice jam in 1984, not by dredging. And since then, the river's flow has returned to normal.  more...

Don’t Let Ethanol Ruin Your Day, Your Engine, Your Bank Account

  #

In case you missed it, Charles Plueddeman’s latest story for Boats.com had an important message for you, that is, if you’re someone who ever uses a boat that has a gasoline engine aboard. More ethanol could be coming to a gas pump near you very soon.

The ethanol producers in North America have petitioned the EPA for an increase in the percentage of ethanol content allowed in gasoline, from 10 percent to 15 percent. As a move to make us less oil-dependent, that might sound sensible, but there’s more to the story.  more...

After near-record lows, Lake Michigan's water level rises nearly 2 feet

  #
A lengthy story Sunday in the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, by Dan Egan, reported: Lake Michigan is on the rebound after flirting with near-record low water levels in 2008. In January 2008 the water was so low that the human polar bears taking their annual New Year's Day plunge off the Door Peninsula had to navigate around yellow police tape so they didn't slash their feet on an offshore shipwreck. Sixteen months and two cold and wet winters later, the lake has added more than 2 feet of water, and it continues to rise almost daily. Numbers provided by the Army Corps of Engineers last week showed the lake is about 9 inches higher than at this time last year, and the agency is predicting it to continue to add inches into late summer.  more...

  #

WEST MICHIGAN -- There's no doubt area boaters are looking forward to warmer weather so they can get out on the water.

Before their boats get wet, people should make sure they're in a "dry" frame of mind -- in other words, leave the booze behind.

Boaters also can help keep themselves safe on the water by checking equipment now, before the season starts.  more...

Despite neighbors' complaints, Boyne leaves mooring policy as is

  #
BOYNE CITY — For now, the city will continue to allow people to moor their boats off city road-end access sites despite complaints about the practice from neighbors.

The issue came before the Boyne City City Commission at its regular semi-month meeting Tuesday.

The dispute surrounds a long-standing practice of non-lakefront property owners mooring their sailboats in the city-owned riparian area off the end of Charlevoix Street on the city’s north side.

Last year the city built a new overlook deck and two parking spaces at the site.  more...

Best fishing ever at Lake Michigan?

  #
ST. JOSEPH, Mich. — Carl Stopczynski had reason to smile when our group stepped aboard his 41-foot Trojan early Tuesday morning.

The burly charter captain, known as "Fuzzy Bear," had just won his second straight Hoosier Coho Classic salmon tournament in Michigan City. He's the first back-to-back winner in the 35-year history of the event, and he did it with a record catch.

But that wasn't the main reason Fuzzy Bear was smiling.  more...
