Vanished shipwreck’s secret revealed

  #

CLEVELAND — Twice during its 122-year history, the C.B. Lockwood has been swallowed up by Lake Erie.

On course from Duluth, Minn., to Buffalo and battling the fury of an October storm, the 285-foot wooden steamer first sank in 1902, crashing more than 70 feet below the waves just east of Cleveland.

The location of the Lockwood was not a mystery. With one look at historical data, its exact location — 13½ miles north by northwest off Fairport Harbor — easily can be found. But despite being armed with a figurative “X marks the spot,” shipwreck hunters have for decades been stumped by the empty expanse of Lake Erie muck where the Lockwood should be.  more...

Chinese Fish for Meaning in U.S. Carp Rampage

  #

Sometimes, Chinese netizens pay more attention to a U.S. news story than Americans do. President Barack Obama’s Feb. 23 decision to allocate $51.5 million to eradicate an invasive species known as the Asian carp is a prime example.

Outside of the Great Lakes and Mississippi River basins, news of this carp-control strategy barely registered with the U.S. public. But on March 6, it hit China and, like a jazz trio riffing for an hour on just a few notes, microbloggers took to the minor news topic with gusto, using it to explore issues ranging from corrupt civil servants to U.S. sovereign debt. Soon it even had its own hash tag, roughly translated as #Asian Carp on an American Rampage#more...

Minnesota DNR re-evaluates Lake Superior rainbow stocking

  #

Just as the sun rises over Lake Superior on Tuesday morning, a lone angler hooks a Kamloops rainbow trout just west of the French River. He plays the fish quickly and slides it onto the pebbled beach. Without ceremony, he extracts his hook and walks the fish over the cobblestones, away from the lake.

The fish is a 6- or 7-pound male, sleek of body, long of jaw, silver with a blush of rose down its flank. A gorgeous fish. In the soft peach light of dawn, the angler lays the fish behind a piece of driftwood and goes back to his fishing.   more...

Prompted by recent violations, Coast Guard urges boaters to take advantage of free safety checks

  #

DNR, anglers discuss threats to fishing in Lake Michigan in 2012

  #

ZEELAND -- Fishermen attending the Spring Salmon Spectacular hosted by Lakeshore Outfitters of Saugatuck were more concerned about the status of their chinook salmon fishery in Lake Michigan than the imposing thought of Asian carp.

That's no surprise to Michigan Department of Natural Resources senior fisheries biologist Kregg Smith. He shares their concern for the salmon, but also has to keep his mind on the foe from the south.  more...

Feasibility study for proposed Clipper

  #

MUSKEGON COUNTY – Muskegon County commissioners, who are still considering a proposal to move the S.S. Milwaukee Clipper to Heritage Landing, agreed to a staff recommendation Thursday to have engineers complete a feasibility study.

The proposed docking of the historic Great Lakes passenger ferry along the east side of the county-owned park’s peninsula has generated a debate of competing arguments, some trumpeting the tourism potential and others criticizing the potential loss of Muskegon Lake views and access.  more...

Jim Gluek Wins 2012 MC Midwinters Championship

  #
Well after a long five hour wait today we finally got in a third light air race to have an official championship in place. As most of you know we had 6 scheduled over the three days for the Midwinter Championship but we had a huge high pressure system park over central Florida. No "Crazy Ivans" (90 degree shifts) as in the first two races. Today we held it down to about 20-30 degree shifts but it was fair racing as you could always see things coming at you.  more...

Study seeks origins of carp DNA in Chicago waters

  #

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. — Federal scientists are studying whether genetic material from Asian carp found in waterways near Chicago suggests the presence of live fish.

DNA from bighead and silver carp has turned up in dozens of water samples taken beyond an electric barrier that's supposed to prevent the invasive plankton eaters from reaching Lake Michigan.  more...

Sleeping Bear Dunes: A Legend Come to Life

Sleeping Bear Dunes: A Legend Come to Life

True statement: I’m a sucker for a good Native American legend. Maybe I’ve been smoking on the wrong peace pipe, but there’s something about the mix of Americana and mythology really gets my brain juice flowing. It could also be because I grew up in Michigan, a state in which almost every stream, hill, or valley has a Native American myth to explain its presence. My favorite of them all is the story of Sleeping Bear Dunes, and it doesn’t hurt that the dunes themselves are a must-see destination for nature travelers.  more...

Traverse City Utility Lights Way to new Home for Tall Ship's Schooner Manitou

  #
After 25 years of tall ship sailing in Traverse City, it looked like the end of the line for Traverse Tall Ship Company and the schooner Manitou, yet another victim of the wave of foreclosures plaguing the nation. As tenants of the dock and property owned by failed developer Westbay Partners, LLC, the Tall Ship Co. – along with two other commercial tenants – was served with an eviction notice in July 2011. With very limited berthing options for Manitou, the situation looked bleak for one of Northern Michigan’s most popular destination attractions.  more...

Should Products have Carbon-Footprint Labels?

  #
I've seen a few articles recently about a push in Great Britain to have carbon-footprint labels on products. An organization called The Carbon Trust ("a not-for-profit company whose mission is to accelerate the move to a low-carbon economy") is behind the labeling, designed to help you see "at a glance which products are working to reduce their carbon footprints." Not only the amount of energy that went into producing the food or item, but the packaging and delivery are included.  more...

Signs of a great time on the Great Lakes: New markers show way along water trails

  #

The water trails along Michigan's Thumb provide breathtaking views, such as this rock formation 2 miles east of Port Austin.Nobody will ever mistake Lake Huron for a pond.

To help paddlers along, the Tip of the Thumb Heritage Water Trail now is fully marked for 122 miles of Lake Huron shoreline spanning Sanilac, Huron and Tuscola counties.   more...
